Myco Bag - Incubation Problems
    #555678 - 02/18/02 10:13 PM (20 years, 5 months ago)

Okay, here is an overview of the procedure:

I recieved 1 EQ syringe and 4 Myco Environment Bags from Sporeworks on 2/08/01, and proceeded to innoculate the bags.

I took a shower, put on freshly laundered clothes, washed my hands with antibacterial soap, and strapped a dust mask to my face. I sterilized my workspace by spraying the walls/countertops with a 10% bleach solution, let it sit for 10 minutes, and wiped dry with a clean terrycloth.

I sterilized a spot on the outside of a myco bag with 70% isopropyl alcohol, sterilized the needle with 70% isopropyl alcohol, and inserted the needle into the 'air balloon' above the substrate. I injected a little over 2cc's spore solution, removed the needle, and immediately taped over the hole with scotch tape. I then mixed up the substrate and broke up all the chunks to distribute the the spore solution.

I repeated the process with the remaining bags.

I put the bags back in the box, and put the box in a warm and dark place. The temperature varies between 75-85 degrees f.

It has been 10 days. The bags look exactly like they did when i recieved them. No mycelium growth is apparent.

What could be the problem? Do you have any advice? Was there a flaw in my procedure?

Thanks. Any help would be appreciated.

I would give it a couple more days, then if you still see nothing contact sporeworks. They will probably hook you up.

You may need another syringe.

Did you gently shake the syringe a bit before you injected the liquid?

Are you supposed to shake the syringe?

Yes, it helps break up the chunks of spores that have stuck together to distribute them into the water more evenly-

Yes, I did shake the syringe to distribute the spores evenly in the solution.

Its time to shake your bags.
