A little spore help please.
    #2683214 - 05/15/04 07:30 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

An old buddy of mine gave me a syringe from sporeworks.com with about 4cc's left in it. The solution is very clear but tiny spores are visible. There are 2 clusters of spores stuck together and i was wandering how i could break them up for even spore distribution. Im a bit hesitant about just sucking in some air and shaking it up becuause any kind of bacteria could get into there and end up growing on my substrate. I heard about sucking in air through a flame but i thought that the air might be too hot and would kill the spores, but i could be wrong i don't know. my other question is how many 3/4 pints could i innoculate with the 4cc's? If i have to i don't mind only innoculating at 2 or 3 spots instead of 4, i don't mind waiting a bit longer for complete colonization. any help is appreciated, thank you.

You could do 4 jars one cc per jar.25 cc per hole and i have sucked air into a syringe before through a flame and worked out fine everytime

You could also use those 4 to do a karo tek and then you could do as many jars as ya want.

i dont think the karo tek would be a good option for a beginner.


to break up the spores, do what Fallenshroom said. Suck up the air, while the needle is being heated red hot by a flame. Put cap back on syringe, and shake like hell.

karo is very easy if one could get pf jars done right then you can do the karo tek.

how about you use about 3cc's to shoot up 6 1/2 pints. .5cc a jar. then take the leftover 1cc and shoot it into a karo jar. if you fuck it up you are only out 1cc and if you get it right you have 100cc.
