How much water spores do i mix with the water?
    #2284267 - 01/29/04 04:23 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

To germinate my spores i mixed 1/4 of a print into one half a jar of mineral water, in a baby food jar. It seems like there isnt enough water in there, should i add more?

Um... generally when you hydrate spores you do so directly into a spore syringe...

Usually it's about a 1/3 x 1/3 inch area of print for every 10cc of water in the syringe - so if anything you may have a bit too much water. How were you planning on using this spore solution???

it dosn't matter how much water is in there but what exactly are you doing? spores won't germinate in water they have to have nutrients like honey or corn syrup mixed with the water. you want to make a syringe and inject pf jars or quarts/grain whatever I think, not liquid cultures. you can suck up the spore water with a syringe and use it now but it might contaminate since you didn't sterlize anything. if you wanted to do liquid culture you would have to add honey/karo then sterlize, then inject spores.

I dont have the syringe yet, i was going to get it this weekend and i wanted to have the spores all germinated and ready so when i make the cakes this weekend i can use them right away. I sterilized the jar first i mean, its just glass and its airtight so i wouldnt think it would get contaminated?

If i didnt use a jar, how would i go about putting the spores from my spore print into the syringe?
