What's the max amount of spore solution to use in a MycoBag?
    #3336289 - 11/09/04 09:57 AM (12 years, 27 days ago)

I believe mycobag.com suggests 3 mL per bag, but I was wondering if any of you can tell me the maximum amount of spore fluid you have used in a bag, without experiencing negative effects from oversaturation? I know each bag has the same moisture content, and I'm sure some people out there have exceeded the recommended amount of 3 mL. Thanks!!! :grin:

Mycobags are large, right? I don't think you can put too much solution... But what's the point of putting the whole syringe in there? The time difference in colonization will be only a matter of hours(if that) using more than 3cc.

there is a such thing as too much, I prefer to use under 2cc on a large bag.

SWIM didn't plan on using a whole syringe, they just thought it would shave a couple days off if some extra was used. I realize that there is a point where there is too much, that's why I made this post to ask others about their experience with bags. Prisoner#1, do you find that using 2cc colonizes faster than 3cc?

Did you shake the syringe?

Ouch.
Did you remember to squirt spore solution down the inside wall of the bag, as opposed to directly into the grain itself?

I find it to be little difference, even with only 1cc the colonization times are
about the same.... simply make sure to mix the bag a few times after its starting
to colonize, I do it at 15% and 30% and it runs wild from there

With grains spore solution almost never matters so much..only germination..once the myc gets going you shake it and its everywhere anyway as if there were many many spores. Mycelium rocks like that.

what difference is this going to make?? I use 1 cc per bag, no more, no less. As soon as it germinates, shake, boom, tons of growth. Also, anyone making their own spawn bags notice sometimes when they come out of the PC, they are evacuated?
