Syringe shaken...
    #566735 - 03/01/02 12:07 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

The past few times I used syringes, only like 1/2 the jars inoculated,
I tried holding the needle cap and shaking for 5 min before 1st jar and then for one min befor the next and so on and so with miniute inteverls between jars?

Anyone have any better ideas to get all the jars to inoculate, or at least more than 1/2?

I find the best innoculation results com from syringes which come from your own spore prints. Perhaps your well shaken method is still yielding poor results because your not injecting enough solution. If only a drop or two is placed into the jar perhaps not enough spores are in the solution. I find that scrapping a spore print while dry, before injecting the water into the jar breaks up the spores better. When injecting water and then scrapping results in big chunks of spores which stick together even when soaked and shaken. Anyway just some thoughts.

How big are the jars/how much spore stuff are you putting in? As stated, a drop or two won't do. A CC or 2 should though.

You don't really need to shake it, just turn it upside down with a flip of your wrist beween each innoculation.
