First Time-*-FICTION-*_
    #4598373 - 08/30/05 09:46 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Alright, so this is going to be my first attempt at any form of mycology. I have obtained a fresh Amazonian print from FSRE and an associate has given me a Golden Teacher print from a local and now unreachable hobbyist. The GT print is about 6 months old, it came with a syringe that the owner said might not be any good when he got it 6 months ago. Here is a list of my questions, sorry if they could be found, i've been researching a bit and don't understand these points.

1: is that print still good? how long do spores stay good in a syringe?

2: My plan is to inoculate as many jars as possible from these 2 prints. How many jars could i inoculate with these resources?

3: do jars colonize faster if you inoculate them with more spores?

4: is there some method by which i can get numerous syringes from one print? i think i read something about a way to colonize one rye jar and use it to colonize many others....?

5: are the nutrients in the standard PF-tek suffecient? it appears to me they could be lacking, but i don't know anything. Should i stick to PF-tek as a first timer or what?

6: from what associates tell me, casing is incredibly hard, is this true?

From what i currently know i'm just going to try and inoculate 2-3 jars from each print and do cakes (so i can't screw up) and make tons of prints from the results.

ps. could someone link me to or explain to me mushroom genetics? as in cloning for particular traits or if their genetics even function like plants?

1 yes
some say months others years
2 100's of jars. 1000000's if you make LC's
3 slightly
4 most prints will do at least 10 syringes. 1/2cc can then make a 500cc LC.
5 yes
6 no

read the top 2 sticky threads at the top of the page for great info

One print could make 10 syringes easily, looking at some vendor syringes they may be making 100 or more from a print. Inject 1/4cc per jar hole so 1cc is a jar with 4 holes, a normal 10ml syringe will get 10 jars 100 jars from a print over 10 syringes. (BTW syringes normally hold 12cc)

I prefer clear homemade syringes. If there is a single contaminant on your print and you make 10 syringes there is a 1/100 chance it will contam one of your jars. If you make 100 syringes it is now 1/1000.

If you make a LC you can use 1/2cc in 500ml of LC. So a syringe will do 10000ml of LC, allowing 10,000 jars, actually it is more than that, as your first 500ml jar could innoc 100's of other 500ml jars.

if casing isn't hard, do you still think it would be wise to make a cake or two of each strain just to make sure i can get prints? i mean who knows what i could screw up. I am new at this. what casing tek would be easiest for a beginner? i won't lie, i am aiming for highest yield.

by the way, i realized i have acsess to fresh horse poo, alot of it. and sheep dung if that shits any good. chicken shit as well. i have a good relationship with the local birdseed store. i'm an intelligent character if you have any special subtstrate or caking recipes you believe would work well with golden teachers or amazonians.
