i have some 22 gauge 1 1/2 in. needles for syringes and was wondering if this was too thin to use for spore syringes. i know they are prob out of the question for myc syringes. im pretty sure most spore syringes are 18 gauge, but what is recommended for myc? just the next fattest?

the thickness makes no difference at all... as long as the water can pass through it. The length is all you need to worry about so you can shoot the spores into the jar, not the dry verm layer. 1 1/2 is long enough so your fine.

for a culture syringe 14 to 18 guage is most suitable, 19 guage can work, anything down to a 23 guage is good for spores....

i was just worried about clogs, but i guess if i bust everything up fine enough (or just push the plunger a little harder) i'll be cool for sure. thanks.

Im not sure what guage mine is. It was a spore syringe so im guessing its pretty high. Do you reckon this would be ok for LC? Maybe if i make a magnetic stirrer the strands of mycelium will be small enough.
