Question about flame sterilization
    #2786871 - 06/12/04 02:31 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I have read that petrochemicals such as butane or pentane, even in small amounts, can be harmful to mycelium, and that even residue from burning them can adversely affect the fungus. I was planning on making my own spore syringes but I don't have an alchohol lamp with which to sterilize the needle... I figure it's a good idea to flame-sterilize them between innoculating jars, maybe after every 3 or 4, just to be on the safe side.

The question: has anyone noticed anything bad stemming from use of a "dirty" flame like a lighter or a smallish blowtorch as opposed to a clean alchohol flame?

Rub alcohol on the needle, flame it inject, rub alcohol on the needle ,flame it , cap it.

SIMPLE.

and if the pertrochemicals hurt mycelium(what almost unthinkable ammountof residue  thats there) well the mycelium I have seen has never heard of that. :smile:

Petrochemical are destroying the planet, not your shroom jars. Dont worry...about your jars anyway. :smile:

i didnt even sterilize between my 12 cakes, and i didnt get a single contam. So i bet a alcohol swab is more than enough, flaming is just being paranoid
