Liquid Cult/Karo Tek
    #2805218 - 06/18/04 01:15 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Hey, I used the Karo tek involving water/light syrup in a gladware container method, innoculated the container 8 days ago with 2 cc's of Ecuador and left them alone in a dark incubator set at about 83 degrees and now I have maybe 12 or so little white kinda fuzzy balls floating around. Is this a sign of contams or am I doing it right? I'll get pictures here when I can get a decent shot of it since it's hard to get on camera. Some of the larger spores groups are in the center of the white fuzz as well.

Okay cool, what's this stuff going to look like when it's ready and how much longer estimated should it take?

I'd say it's ready.
Now, shake the jar very well and suck the liquid with a syringe.
Next time put some pieces of broken glass with the liquid inside the jar. It will be much easier to break the mycelium clumps. Big mycelium clumps can be hard to suck in.

be sure its a sterile syringe, just microwave a coffe cup of hot water for five mins, then suck the boiling hot water in the syringe, and empty the syringe into the sink, repeat until coffee cup is empty.

awsome, thanks guys...should I make sure to suck up just the mycelium, or after shaking will most of the liquid have enough potential to grow? Also, I'll be knockin up some WBS in quart jars 1/2 to 2/3rds full, how much solution should I use?

Either shake up the jar to break up the myc, or "fish" clumps of myc out and into your syringe, and shake that up to break 'em up.

Just use it like a spore syringe when innoculating -- about 1cc per jar.
