Attention Newbies-Make Spore Prints With Foil! * 4
    #557455 - 02/20/02 12:25 PM (22 years, 2 months ago)

Greetings All:
For those of you who are interested in trading spores please do us all a big favor and use sterilized aluminum foil to make your prints. I've tried several different mediums for making spore prints and so far I've found that plain old Aluminum Foil is the best. For some reason spores stick better to foil than they do paper. I'm sure some veteran shroomers could elaborate on why they stick better to foil than paper. Anyway, Foil is cheap and can be bought at any grocery store in the world. You can even use cheap aluminum foil. Also, foil can be easily sterilized in your oven by baking it at the highest temperature for about 20 minutes. You can cut it into small rectangles and bake it, let the foil cool down in a large pyrex dish and then stick your caps on the sheets and cover the whole dish full of sheets with saran wrap or more foil. The next day you'll have some nice, dark, heavily sporolated prints. After your prints are ready you can seal up the sides by folding them over and then place them in a plastic bag. Foil prints are ideal for newbies and veteran shroomers alike. They insure that everyone has a viable, sterile, print. Nothing can be more frustrating than trading with someone who doesn't know how to make a spore print. There is no excuse for making primitive spore prints. I've recieved numerous prints from people that absolutely sucked! Some prints have been so blank that they were impossible to make a syringe from. I find this highly frustrating! Also, prints that are left open in plastic bags are not acceptable. I don't know what some people's ideal of sterility and aseptic technique are but leaving a print open in a big plastic bag is by no means a sterile way to store a spore print. (You people know who you are!) Vendors do this shit all the time and that doesn't make it right. Actually, most vendors set very poor examples for newbies when it comes to spore prints. Prints should be folded at the sides and sealed, then placed in a plastic bag.
If we are to continue trading spores with one another then at least we should try and have respect for the fungus by handling the spores properly. These are sacred beings that have been passed down to us from many generations of cultivation and learning. Let us not disregard that fact and fall victim to a lackadaisical style of propagation. Lets keep the spores going and keep them clean.

Best Wishes,
