Spores, general questions and defintion help please
    #4085190 - 04/22/05 03:57 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

HI I was wondering if someone can shed a little light for me here. I'm a newbie and recent;yt posted topics and was please to get help and would like somemore. My first one is, what is FLushing of cakes. I am interested in that since I here you can get mroe grmas out of a cake. 2nd I've read the newbie quide and stuff. It is good but a bit unclear. One question bugging is when it says " Insert needle of syringe as far as it will go into a hole in the lid of the culture jar and get the needle to press against the glass" When it says this I am confused, wouldn't need touch some of the contents on the inside the. I don't know if its suppose to but 'm just askign cause I thoughtthe needle isn't suppose to touch anything, but if it is, when done adding the stuff, how should I sterialize the needle. I read the Magic mushrooms growers guide on the websit, version 3.2, last updated 11-16-2003, is this still good or is there things missing.
And then my biggest question and hopeing for good results, is where could I get good spores and not ripped off. I;m from Canada. Looking for Cubensis, I think thats how they are spelt, I can not beleive how man dif kinds there are. ANyways, do these turn Blue when dried.
One more thing. WHat is a good way to dry zooms and have max potency.

Nathan

grab spores from any of the sponsors. the needle can touch anything once its through the lid. they mean stick it in the jar as far as you can and squirt the spores onto the inside of the jar wall so the spores run down into the container and dont get stuck in the verm layer.

if you read the teks,then you would already know what flushing is. its when the mushrooms fruit all at once, in one big flush.

sterilize the needle every time you take it out of the jar.

After you birth your cakes, they should pin. These pins will go on to either become mature mushrooms, or just stop growing, aborts. After your shrooms mature and you harvest them, that was pretty much a flush. Don't see how a flush would get you more grams from a cake, are you refering to dunking?
You need the syringe to go in as far as it can so your spore solution makes it past the 3/4" dry vermiculite layer and down to the nutrients in the cake. Pressing the needle against the glass allows the solution to run down the glass and not just start colonizing in one spot.
You can either sterelize your syringe between jars with a flame or alcohol wipe,70% alcohol.
Any of the sponsors will take care of your spore problems. I myself like thehawkseye. Good Luck.
Peace,Love,Happiness and Harmony.

1) a Flush is when the mushrooms mature and they are picked off a cake or caseing, the next set of mushrooms that grow in is the second flush and so on. You might be talking about dunk and roll witch brings up the yeild in cakes.

2) you put the needle against the glass will not contaminate it because you pced it (didnt you?) which means it is sterile. If you are inoculating in open air i would sterilize after each jar but that may just be me.

3)Any shroomery sponser is good.

Well, the reason I ask abotu flushing is because I was reading about how someone was sayign a cake gets abotu 3 to 7 grams dried but he said he picked them and flushed them and was able to get 14 to 15. I can't find it right now.
What about the cubensis, do they turn blue. I guess heres another question I should have asked. when you empty your cake from the jar into your tarium, you leave it the way it is right, your don't smoothen it across the bottom to make it all level right. I am a newbie and I am sorry, you probably get peopel asking questions like this all the time but I jsut need to hear it once and thats all. ALso, what can't I find anywhere on this thing to post my own picture.
Thanks again

Nathan

Yes, they turn blue from bruising. You should probably double end case your cakes. If you do this the bottoms don't need to be smooth, they will sit in your vermiculite. To post a pic, it has to be a certain size. Just copy from your pic folder and paste it to your post. You might want to keep reading. Good Luck.
