Choking LC Syringes
    #4436519 - 07/22/05 03:13 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

When I made LC all the time I faced with the issue of choking syringes.
I find it usefull to use needle of syringe to tear the mycelium up when it choked by big cloud of mycelium.
Is there anybody who is dealing with this issue and find a good solution?
Peace

He took a face from the ancient gallery
And he walked on down the hall
He went into the room where his sister lived, and...then he
Paid a visit to his brother, and then he
He walked on down the hall, and
And he came to a door...and he looked inside
Father, yes son, I want to kill you
Mother...I want to...fuck you

Shake your LC jar every day or two to keep it nice and broken up, putting a marble or piece of glass in the jar will help also.

Simply stirring well once or twice a day will keep the pieces nice and small, so that even a thick LC can be sucked up through a thin 20 GA needle. I don't "shake" LC's anymore as the constant breakdown seems to hurt the culture over time. However, they can take a few gentle swirls each day forever, with no noticeable loss.

i use 14GA. needles you can draw LC up into syringe and reinject hard to cut up a thick mass of mycelium. you may have to do it several times.

Ultimate way is a stir plate.
