Wait for some spores to start dropping before you print?

So what do you recomend.

Do you usually wait for some spores to start dropping before making a print.

I got a little axious a couple days ago and tried making a print but it never dropped its spores. I believe I may have picked it a day early. This time I will wait until I start to see some on the stem. Is this okay?

I even waisted my time because I pc some water in a 1/2 pint with a rack on top for my cap to sit. After 36hrs and cap starting to get black spot on top I discarded it and figured I must have picked it to early.

At least next time through I will know how to go about my procedures in a quicker way when placing the cap inside the jar as to eliminate any contams that could enter.

Do any of you print directly to water so you can suck it up with sterile syringes. Or do you like to take a regular print for future use.

Any help or tips would be great.

Thanks.

yeah wait until it starts dropping spore to get a nice print, you can tell by either like you said on the stems or caps or just by looking at the gill color. i always print to foil and make syringes when i need them :stoned:

the reason being for waiting is that the gills will sort of clean themselves be ejecting the spores that are towards the outsides first. These are the most likely to be contamed

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.
