diluting spore syringe/ karo tek questions
    #4038404 - 04/10/05 09:28 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

I inoculated 10 brf pint jars with 2 syringes (cambodian and hawaiian) with 2cc per jar. I haveabout 1cc left of hawaiian and maybe 1/4 cc of cambodian and would like to make some karo water and move on to grains (popcorn or millet). The question is, after i use the last in my syringes, should i draw up some sterilized water into the syringe to get all the spores off the sides and how much of this would i then need to shoot up a jar? Would more be needed since there are less spores throughout the syringe with more water? Also, would it be better to draw in water when there is about 1cc of original spore water in the syringe and use this diluted syringe? It would obviously contain more spores than if i drew in water when the syring was completely empty except for the spores on the sides?
Im just trying to make the most of my remaining syringes so i dont have to order more or wait for a colonized cake so i can do a g2g transfer or take a small piece of mycelium from a cake and add it to some karo water.

Regarding the recipe for karo tek:
1 tsp (5 ml) light karo
100 ml warm water

Ive also heard that 1 tsp to 75 ml water colonizes faster but i always thought that higher sugar solutions are undesirable. Also, to make a larger batch of karo water, do i need to increase the amount of solution or can i just use say
1 tbl karo to 250 ml water and i will have a larger myc ball right. If this works it will be used to inoculate pint or quart jars of popcorn or straight millet.

So long as you get some spores in an LC, it will go.
