what should spore syringes look like
    #2621014 - 04/30/04 12:58 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

i just received 3 spore syringes, the syringes look clear with little to no particles in the solution. is this how they are supposed to look? should it look mostly clear or should it be cloudy or lots of floating particles?

clear syringes are just fine.Spores are microscopic so you cannot see them with the naked eye.The black clumps people have sometimes are thousands( if not more)of spores clustered together.Clear ones can still have millions of spores and you only need a few.My last 4 syringes I bought were clear as could be,and i had no problems.Dont worry about it and Good luck.

Butternut squash are softer than acorn or other types of squash, which makes them easier to cut and prepare.

thanks

also i was wondering if someone would mind posting a pic of an uncolonized pf cake. i made my first batch last night and it seemed a little dry i thought it was going to be more pastey.

also i followed the recipe and made up enough for 6 1/2-pint jars and it ended up being enough for all 12(almost). why was this the case? should i have packed more substrate into the jars? i just filled and didn't really "pack" it in.

That cake is before PCing.



There is enough uncolonized here to see. Never use perlite in a cake.

i was reading another post where somone had the trouble with nearly twice as much mix, ive read that you should not pack it down because this allows for more air to circulate through the jar which can help speed up colinazation. good luck
