New Subtrate / Syringe Life
    #2529772 - 04/06/04 12:28 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I started my cakes yesterday using a new substrate I just threw together. I used the 3 cups flour, 3 water, 6 verm recipe. But instead of just b. rice I used 1 1/2 c. b. rice, 1 cup rye flour, and about a 1/2 cup of this cricket gut load I bought from a reptile show. It contains 30% protein and looks to be made up of mostly ground corn and barley or wheat. I don't have a pressure cooker so I boiled for an hour. I was wondering what you all think of this? Also I am using Penis Envy spores that are close a year old and weren't kept in the refrigerator. I was wondering what the likelyhood of them still being viable anymore is?

The probability of them being alive is dependant on the environment they were kept in. I store my prints in a cool and dark location. Heat and light are not good for spore storage.

The substrate is a gamble, hopefully an educated one. The problem I usually run into when trying new cake recipes is the water content of the jar. If you got that right you should be fine.

Good luck!

Thanks, I kept them at about room temp in the dark. The water content seemed pretty good I've done this about six or seven times before so I have a pretty good idea of what I'm doing.

I have some signs of growth finally but I am getting a kinda funky smell from the jars. There are NO signs of contamination yet though. I am trying to remember if I ever smelled it before. What do you guys think? Is a little smell normal? It's not really strong or anything. I'll stick it out until I notice some kind of contams.
