Poor Man's Mycelium Syringe Tek Questions
    #2687484 - 05/16/04 06:07 PM (14 years, 7 days ago)

I was reading through the Poor Man's Mycelium Syringe Tek and it intrigued me, the only thing is I don?t have any colonized cakes. Couldn?t I just inoculate the karo jar with a spore syringe? How much spore solution should be added to the jar?

Also, I only have jars with metal lids, could I just use a Tupperware container or does the lid have to screw on?

I was planning on growing mycelium in the karo jar and just inoculating a few sterilized PF cakes with some of it instead of using the rest of my spore syringe on the cakes. This way it will take less time to colonize the cakes and the success rate should increase because the spores have already germinated.

What do you guys think?

Thanks,
ShroomNoob03

In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.

I like to use roughly 2ccs of spores per karo batch but it doesn't take that much.

yes you can go from multispore to karo it is very easy 2 ccs into a half pint jar with 100ml water, 2 tablespoons karo is the ratio i use

I don't understand this question, unless you are asking about sterilization
a plastic container should work fine
just make sure it is thick enough to withstand the pc or microwave and that you have a hole to get yr syringe through
