Honey Tek Innoculation
    #3131687 - 09/13/04 10:55 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Well, my honey tek jar has a fat blob of (presumably) myc growing in it right now, and it seems pretty strong when I jiggle the jar and it wobbles about, much like a jellyfish.

So, I know that it will be impossible to actually suck any of that up into the syringe, so should I just shake the living bejesus out of the jar in an attempt to break it up some into more of a liquid solution rather than a giant blob? Or will shaking it hurt the myc or damage it or something? I figure that if I do a plain transfer, it will still get shocked from the move, so if I shake it and then move it, it'll be shocked anyway...

Anyone have good insight about this? Thanks!

Here's the jar-

Kinda hard to see, I know... sorry about the quality

Shake the fuck out of it. From the pic it looks like that will suck out no problem. Just suck a little up and shoot it back in repeatedly. That will break it up good. You can also put some bits of glass in it next time, that will serve to break it up good.

I would just suck up some solution in a sterile syringe and shoot it back in several times hitting the blob directly this will shread that mofo, it will work better than shaking especially without glass shards or anything to break it up. GL

have a couple of jars inoc. looks much like yours. not too sure about using glass shards though. could they not eventually get 'into' the fruit? not incorporated into the body, but end up on the fruiting body itself?
