ecuador prints
    #3345474 - 11/11/04 05:55 AM (12 years, 29 days ago)

i'm planning my first grow and got an ecuador print from a free spore ring. i'm planning to try many different teks to see which is the best for me (brf, rye, brf+dunk, cased brf, uncased brf ecc...). in any case, the first thing i want to do is becoming indipendent from vendors, ie, take my own prints for the new cycle. so i thought i could use the first flush for taking prints, since being a newbie i can't foresee if there will ever be a second flush and how big it will be. the only drawback of this plan is that i've read that later flushes in cambodian make fewer but bigger shrooms, ie they are better for taking prints, while the first flush gives small shrooms which lead to poor prints. should i wait the second flush, then? at which stage do you guys usually take your prints?

size doesnt really matter, as long as they print, there are plenty of spores to carry on. size of cap and what flush are unimportant imho.

Print what you can, you need a few, so you can send some back to the spore ring :-) so just print each flush as it comes.

Yeah print em all like he said..even a small light mushroom print will be enough to do at least 10 syringes. You will probably get bigger ones on future flushes though but you can print those too and just make more syringes with them. You only need to scrape off a small section of spores from a print for a syringe though..a nice dark print 2-3 inches big could probably do a hundred syringes or more.

yup, i'm only worried for the tek to be used for making prints and making syringes out of prints. i have read many teks and can't understand what is the real risk of contamination at this stage: some use glove boxes, mini-chambers and PC, others just do it in the open air. newbies usually buy syringes, i got a print which requires more delicate passages.
(oh, sure i'll send many prints to the fsr if i'll menage to crop some shrooms!)

It should be done in a sterile environment. Not that it cant be done open air but its a risk..this isnt affected in any way by the cap size though which is all that would really change from shroom top to shroom top.

I've been spraying diluted bleach high in the room in a fine mist. First all windows have to be closed and fans turned off. I back out of the room as I spray, and repeat in about 20 minutes. It's nowhere near as good as a flow hood, but a lot of the contams are knocked down and killed. There's a bleach smell, but it's only about as strong as in a public pool.

Read it in Staments' GG&MM. Page 76.
