major bummer
    #4395876 - 07/12/05 03:12 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

so i woke up this morning and i checked on my jars to see how the rest were doing after i found 2 with contams.  I was screwed, 4 more have black molds growing on them in small spots but like usual they will spread and screw me.  I guess i'll have to toss and try again.  This time tought me some patience and first hand expierience i guess so i'll have an idea what to do my 2nd time around.

Just a couple of questions for all you shroomers out there.

1.  I'm running low on spore solution, i want to use the Karo tek,  But i dont want to waste more solution if i dont know what i'm doing.  Can someone explain the tek to me, and give me exact measurements and some advice, i have 3cc left and thats pretty much all i can get, i can't order a new syringe. if you know what i mean, kind of in a bad situation with receiving "wierd packages" as my roomies call them.

2.  Also i have the cakes with the mold on them still but does anybody have any success with dunking in like h2o2, the cakes are only about 15% colonized and the mold is on the other side of the cake. :confused:

thanks for the help thus far i appreciate it, hopefully the 2nd go around will give me some success right?

I do my Karo in half pints.. I use 2 3/4 teaspoon corn syrup, full 1/2 pint water, stir it til there is no residue left on spoon, (spray microwave with neutra air before hand, and let it settle) then open microwave and quickly screw top (with hole already in it) on, then I let it cool, shaking it every once in a while, I already have electrical tape over the hole when I screw the top on.. When it is cool, just inject spores.. I find the myc breaks up pretty easy without bothering to put a marble or anything in there..

Kalix. How long do you put in there for? Oh and if you already have the holes and the lid is on there tight then wont the steam go through the hole?

just a thought on not being able to receive weird packages.  Im sure you can find someone on here (either a vendor or a member) who would be willing to mail you a print in an envelope.  You'd have to make up your own syringe, but it wouldn't look as suspicious as a small rectangular box that not much can fit in :wink:  GL man, sorry to hear about the problems.

I use metal lids, so I have to put them on after microwaving.. I have a hole in it, but it is covered with electric tape, so I just screw the lid on real quick while the jar is still sitting in the nuke, but not while it's nuking.. Also, I do it once for 2 minutes 45 seconds, count to ten and give it another 2 45

empty syringes can be rinsed with 1ml of unsterile water to knock-up agar plates. You can further isolate myc. with sterile agar and grain transfers.
