wait for karo, or use spores now?
    #2419010 - 03/11/04 02:06 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

just lookin for some input for you guys on what i should do...

i've got 4 quarts of rye ready to be noc'd up, 200 mls of karo that i started a week ago w/burma spores, and 3 unused syringes... The karo is showing very rapid growth and i'm anxious to give it a try, but i've been told you want to wait at least 2 weeks before you use it. So should I wait another week for the karo to finish, or noc em now w/spores for fastest growth? I'm guessing it will prolly be about the same either way but just thought i'd see what you guys thought.

if you are seeing growth in your karo jar, then I say use them.. the spores(in karo), by your description they have seemed to germinate already..

yea theres a pretty decent amount of myc floatin around in it... i was under the impression that you wanted to wait till there was a massive white blob floatin around in it though...

this is the first time i've attempted karo so i'm not sure how much i need use when injecting... do I need to use more than i would if i were using spores?

don't wait for the blob!!! :lol: :wink:

if it gets all blob like you will have to break it up first.. I get my blobs stuck in the syringes sometimes.. hehe

so I would say use it now...I forgot about how much to use.. but a good guess it over 1cc per jar.. I would use 2-3 cc per jar.. just to make sure I got mycelium in each innoculation(sp?) point.... some might use less.

So...with regards to the karo tek, can you just use any of the liquid or do you have to suck up some of those white blobs?? I've been wondering this because I don't see how I'm going to be able to suck them up quick enough to not allow any contams to jump in.

You should have a hole poked in your karo jar lid just big enough for the syringe (or better yet a self-healing injection port). Otherwise use a glove box.

My honey-tek jars have a lid with a hole near the edge and then I can swirl the myc, tip it sideways and suck myc in as it floats near the tip. Works well.

I would shake the jars first o break it up, then suck up into syringe.. don't worry about anything else.
