tips for first spore print
    #3997183 - 03/31/05 09:25 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I just tried making my first spore print off of my first shroom, and failed miserably. The stupid thing turned black and started rotting, probably because I didn't notice the bit of rubbing alcohol still at the bottom of the jar that I put my cap into.

Basically I tried it like this. Cleaned a jar, pin, and cuticle scissors with alcohol. Almost immediately after the veil broke, I took the pin, stuck it in the cap, cut the cap off as close as possible with the scissors, and put the cap in a jar, left the pin in the cap. I put this jar in my glovebox along with a dish of DampRid.

A few hours later the cap is black and stinky. Still wet and no good.

I know what I fucked up on this time, and next time I will make sure to WIPE the alcohol out of the jar first.

But do any of you have any tips for making syringes or prints from your own experiances and mistakes?

way too much effort into making a print.

get a notecard, cut the stem off, place the cap on the card gills down, then put a cup over it so wind doesn't interfere, wait a couple hours and there you go.

But won't the notecard have all kinds of crap on it? I'd rather just do it in a jar so I can suck it straight up into a syringe instead of having to scrape shit off of a piece of paper...

If your concerned about the sterility of your caedstock... use foil wiped down with alcohol (and let it dry). There are printing teks everywhere, including two on the FSRC website.
Check em out :smile:

I make my prints directly in a steralized tupperware container. I put the top on lightly and let sit for 24 hours. After this I pull the cap out. I put a very small nail or pin in the top so I can pull it out easy.

This seems to work great because I make my syringes right when they are done printing. I dont really see any need to make prints to save as I always have a few mushes popping up.

okay, I'ma try it again as soon as my shrooms open up. Everyone says it's easy, and I know that honey LC was easy as fuck... I guess I'm just a dumbass and didn't see all the rubbing alcohol still in the jar... Live and learn...

make sure the jar isnt sealed. many of the teks recommend a cup or glass being placed over a shroom and card but also being placed in such a way as to not completely seal off the shroom. i think one tek recommends placing the glass partially on a clean rag. im not sure if this was your problem, but it is important and i could not tell from your initial post whether or not the jar was creating a stagnant environment.

no, I don't have the jar sealed. I have it in my glovebox with a pan of DampRid to absorb moisture.

I just started again about a half hour ago. It should definitely be done by the time I get back from work tonight. I picked a cap that was open a bit more this time.
