Clouds in syringe..
    #4282471 - 06/11/05 04:49 AM (11 years, 11 months ago)

I made some syringes a couple of weeks ago with the following method.

250ml plastic container filled with de-ionised water.
PC'd 25 mins
let cool then quickly scraped Traskei spores into water with sterilized inoculation loop and replaced the lid.
Sucked up water through a hole with new sterile syringes.

Wasn't really expecting it to work but I checked today and I can little white fluffy clouds in the syringes.

My question is, have the spores germinated? Is this possible as I wouldn't expect there to be any nutrients in just de-ionised water.

Spores have been known to germinate in plain 'ol water. Sounds like thats what it is.

Yep, I have a couple distilled water syringes lying around with heavy, clumped germination. It's really something else.

Cheers Diver. It didn't seem to be clumped spores, when I look through the syringe I can see hardly any spores at all just a couple of fluffy clouds.

You think all should be OK?

Course it'll be ok.  :cool: Just try to shake as much as you can to break up the clumps if at all possible.

Hope all my home made syringes end up like this. I inoculated last night and woke up this morning to find white fluffy myc. starting to take to the grain.

Accidental LC, I like it!!
