That's what nice about karo, so little spores needed to extend your syringe. Shoot your Karo jar with 1cc of spore solution.

yes just inject,incubate and wait...when and if the spores germinate you will know,it will be a nice white color,the color of mycelium.

You will know. In about 3-5 days you will start to see germination of the spores. They will look like little white puff balls. If it takes a few more days, don't freek. Can you see any spores or little black specks in the syringe? If not, it still can be effective.

Go with Karo IMO. And no. You'll have to pc or steam sterilize the jar with the liquid inoculum in it mixed and ready to go.

You can pc the the jar and the karo solution for 30 minutes @ 15 psi or steam sterilize it for 40 minutes in a pot of water.

I use a 1 qt. jar filled 1/3 of the way up with water. Then add about 2-3 tablespoons of Karo light corn syrup. I use a filtered lid with a Karo culture so you get maximum performance out of it. If you use a filtered lid, don't shake the liquid around, gently swirl it so the filter doesn't get wet with Karo. That's why you only fill it 1/3 of the way up. It gives you some room to swirl without getting it wet. Put 2 pieces of glass or a couple marbles in the jar to help break up the tissue later in the growth process. Mix it up until the liquid gets clear again and pc for 30 minutes @ 15psi or for 40 minutes steam. Easy as pie.

OMG AFOAF decided to do a bunch of karo jars, and this idea, whomever it was, is incredible. All the jars within normal syrup ratios show awsome growth.

Does any one know if I can do this with Azures and Weilii?

It should work, but malt extract may work better (though maybe not). Cubies arent so picky about theyre nutes, some other mushrooms may be. Karo water works for any species I've seen so far though...

do i mix the water and karo as you said above, put a couple of marbles in the jar, put tyvek under the lid and PC it? then let it cool overnight and inject some spores? sorry to keep on with it, but it seems way too easy. and also how long is a jar good for? i searched a long time last night on the search feature of this site, but didn't have much luck. i found the method where you shoot up karo and water into a fully colonized jar, then suck it back out. But i'm more interested in injecting new spores into the karo. well, thanx in advance!
