Spores Germinating In Syringe?
    #4170278 - 05/13/05 11:59 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I have a couple of partially used syringes (A-Strain, and Hawaiin) that the spores appear to have started to germinate in. Is this normal? The syringes were ordered about 1.5 months ago. It looks basically like Liquid Culture. There are also still visible spores that have barely germinated or not germinated at all. I don't really see how they could be contamed or anything, so are they still good to use?

Also, if they are good then since they already started to germinate will they colonize my jars a bit faster maybe?

Don't let your brain tell your mind it can't feel

yes they are still viable.

basically the spores just germinated...

so now you have a mycelium syringe.

alot of times with older syringes you will see clear globs and the spores will all be chunked up this has a techincal name i am sure but basicly from what i hear is that its the spores looking for a mate and food
