Spore syringe question?
    #2814702 - 06/21/04 06:44 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

When you guys get your spore syringes (for the people that do use them) do you get a bit of water that has drained into the plastic cover covering the needle?

I noticed that with all the syringes that I have gotten from various distributors over the months, there has been water in all the caps covering the needle and it seems wiered because I have never gotten any shrooms to grow, it always gets contaminated. I wonder if this has anything to do with it? Please help me out if you can.

thats ok but do you steralize your needles? You might have a flaw in your tek's. What are you growing on? what tek are you following? And what kind of contams are you geting?

Yeah, that's relatively normal. Changes in ambient pressure and temperature, and simple shaking about can cause some fluid to leak out of the syringe and into the caps. It shouldn't cause a problem.

I'd suspect your sterile technique more than I would that aspect of the syringes, if you got the syringes from a reputable vendor.
