more spores = faster inoculation?
    #2909419 - 07/20/04 06:55 PM (13 years, 2 days ago)

i'm about to make some syringes and i'm trying to decide whether to give each syringe the recommended amount of spores or splurge, give them twice or something and see if they inoculate faster. if i don't do that, i'm thinking of poking more than the customary four holes in my pftek jars to get more mycelium instances going. are these ideas ok or should i drop them in favor of the tried-and-true standards?

and by the way, just what exactly is the recommended amount of spores per syringe? i just picked up an inch-diamter MR print from tlg. i heard 1/5 of a print per syringe. or maybe that was for two syringes.

The less spores the better! the reason is strain isolation, A large multispore germination will leave you with many substrains (not good) A weak spore solution will give you a much better chance at a good fruit (size and yield). On an average 1in. print you should get at least 5 if not ten syringes :wink: GL bro

The one syringe I made was so clear I thought I had nothing in there, yet @ 11 days my Jars are flying along. Better to have right temps and shit than more spores.

Someone on the board (I think) once compared this to planting about 20 plant seeds into one hole. It's pretty much useless.

I agree. I found that less spores gives a slower start but you do get stronger fruiting myc. and after a week things get going fast anyway.

Exactly! Btw way darker syringes DO colonize quicker. :wink:
