Self-Sufficiency Questions
    #4231882 - 05/29/05 12:07 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Newbie here hopefully getting his spores soon. Getting spores is a convert op for me so I need to make sure I can be self sufficient from the start--I don't want to have to order spores again for a long time. I only ordered 1 syringe and I want to grow 6-8 1/2pint cakes as soon as they arrive. The question is, what is the safest way to become self sufficient? Should I make like 5 spore prints from my first batch in case I have a lot of contams? Do experienced growers usually try to make syringes or use another method to keep it going?

Thanks for the replys guys. I am thinking to make 1-3 cakes and try to start a small LC as soon as the spores arive. I made my own glove box today and am slightly giddy about the scientific look I will aquire while using it.

Take as many prints as you can. Those will come in handy. Then you can put some spores from the prints on agar, or do a LC and boom, you are ready to go. And if you take a lot of prints it should last you a long long time.
