Spore prints
    #2828738 - 06/25/04 07:25 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Yesterday I recieved in the mail two different spore prints from two different sources of the same strain (GT). One is on foil, is black, and very "gritty", had to scratch it off the foil to get it. The other is a chocolate brown, and much more powdery.

I used the first one (opened it first:>) and pretty much injected the jars(6xBRF, 5xbirdseed, 1xhoney+water) and I'm waiting for something to happen. What I'm worried about is why was the foil print all dried out and black, were the spores all dead? Did I have to leave them in the syringe overnight or something to hydrate them? Will they still work?

Thanks
Tim

Actually, upon checking it just then, it's more of a dark dark brown, but it's still more powdery?

You should wait at least 12 hours after you make your syringe to allow the spores to hydrate,they germinate faster.

also the print that you scraped off was probably wrapped up right after printing,therefore trapping moisture inside with the spores and being packed and run through mailing machines it has dried out and flattened.It will still be good unless it was exposed to extreme conditions.
