what's the best material for making spore prints?
    #4430582 - 07/20/05 11:44 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

1. aluminum foil
2. index cards
3. wax paper
4. other

prints will be used for storage and trading. What material do you use?

for making fresh syringes, i will probably use a wide mouth, 1/2 pint jars.

I use index cards, wipe down a plate and a bowl with alcohol, then 4 half cards per plate with the upside down bowl on top, microwave for 5 minutes(including small amount of alcohol vapors), rinse hands and scissors with alcohol, cut caps and place on cards, then replace bowl and put in draft-free spot for 24 hours.

Repeat alcohol hand washing, fold in half and seal 3 sides quickly with tape.

Nice dark (and so far clean) prints have been the result.

i like to use jars to make spore solution. i lay my jar on it's side and make prints down the side. when one side is covered i go to the next until all the sides are covered. then i just fill the jar w/ water and there you have it. syringes for days.

anything that is smooth, waterproof, and easy to cut is fine. you just need to be able to easily wipe it down with alcohol just give the alcohol time to evaporate before you put the cap onto whatever you choose

Sandwiched between waxpaper works good as does foil. I also use glass slides.

I just use index cards covered in packing tape always works for me. Or since I work retail after the holiday season we have tons of gift boxes left over. I cut the box to suite the size of the cap and make the print on the glossy side of the box then make a fold down flap to cover the print. Everythijng is wiped down with alcohol of course.

Well this is how I like to do it. I like to get my foil ready like this That way when the print is done you have these flaps to fold over.

I then get a half pint jar (wide mouth) and prepare it like this. I ditch the disk and silicone in a tyvek disk. This will allow the cap to dry a little as sits in the jar. (Which causes more spores to drop and prevents the cap from rotting. Will also allow the prints to dry once the mushroom cap is removed.)

Next put in the foil and cover with the lid. Put some foil on top and pc for one hour at 15 psi.

Now uncover and wipe off and your little print chamber is ready.

Now take the jar to your mushroom chamber and loosen the top but don?t remove it.

I like to put a pin in each of the mushroom caps I?m going to print.

Cut the shroom just below the cap and put it on the foil in the jar as fast as you can. Easy to do since the jar lid is loose.

Put it in a glovebox or where you like to do your work.

In 24 hrs open up and take out the cap by the pin (now we know what the pin is for) and put the cap back on. Let it sit for 24 hrs again to let the spores dry.

Once dry fold up foil and store in a cool dry place

I hate to clean my print foil with alcohol. We all have our own way I guess.

I do lots of different kinds of field mushrooms, in which sometimes it is hard to spot lighter colors on index cards. I usually use foil in the real short wide mouth jars. The jar keeps currents from blowing the spores around and you get a lot thicker print and helps keep em clean. SmallWorlds asked about index cards, it is only a problem doing mushrooms with white spores. Purple it is fine.

1. Glass slides (3 or 4 side by side w/tape underneath to hold them togather)

2. Laminating material(Office Depot). If you have an inpulse sealer.

3. Foil (easy & cheap).

Or, straight into sterilized water (suggest G/B or F/H).

Sporalator Jar w/filter, hanger & asperation port
Suspended on a stainless steel treble hook.
Just PC Jar w/water in it 20 minutes.
Cool to room temp & hang one in there.

I like using glass the best.

I use alot of Alum foil for making prints for the FSR's, trades and give aways.

I f#cking hate paper!~
The spores get sucked into the paper fibers after the print gets older...
making it harder to scrape the spores off.

Trick questions...LOL ," BEST material" for prints is a good viable strain and clean spores  :wink:

There are tons of ways , and one isnt the BEST , it depends on what works for you and is affordable IMHO . But I like to do mine on REYNOLDS "non stick" foil. The print once fully dried will peel off as one large waffer(sometimes) no need to scrape at all when it comes time to use those spores.The only down fall is if not carefull when opening it up you may spill spores all over the place .

Best method I have seen by other grower was done on glass slide, placed in a petri dish that was then put into a bag and vac sealed.

For my personal supply, I use Petri dishes.. Great to print on, only problem is mailing is a pain...not horrible, easier then a syringe, but still not as easy as a peice of foil between cardboard...which is what I try to do if I know I'll be sending out the prints.

What I have been using are the backs of kodak pictures:



It is a sturdy material and the spores scrape away clean. You can sterilize them beforehand with alcohol as well. One or two caps on half of the paper will do the trick. Then just fold in half and tape! Just go through all those pictures you have and find all the bad pics you took and there you go :thumbup:
