Moist spore prints
    #594697 - 03/31/02 05:36 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Hi, is it okay that my spore prints seem slightly moist? They're not wet, but they're not really "dry" either. I printed on alfoil, and noticed that some of the spores were stuck to the "roof" of the flap that I folded over, leaving the original print a bit messy. I hope that explains what I mean.

I don't expect it would be a big problem, the prints are pretty dark - just asking in case... :wink:

They should be dry before you try to scrape them anywhere's. They should dry themselves pretty quick.

Even when wrapped up in alfoil? I'm worried they might rot or something...

I had a problem sorta like that. i had moisture on my foil. when you make prints sometimes you may need to remove the cap(when its done) and let the print dehumidify.

What if you weren't smart enough to post this question, and went ahead and folded the tinfoil up & put it in a little baggie while the print was still moist? Would the print be useable? Someone I know does stupid crap like this all the time.

I use wax paper and fold then stick my prints in the dessicant chamber for a day. Nice and dry spores that way. Just make sure when you make a syringe that you let the spores re-hydrate for 24 hours in the syringe before you do any innoculations

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

I like foil the best for printing.

I have gotten a print that was slightly moist, everything went well.

I believe if the print is fresh there is now need to rehydrate the spores, I have inoculated min after making a syringe from a fresh print. Signs of mycelium were fast 1-3 days. If the print is a few months old it may need to reydrate in the syringe for 12-24 hours
