Interesting spore collection idea
    #5947942 - 08/09/06 06:51 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

instead of going through the whole process of being sterile and pulling your cap off, making sure not to breathe or let the bottom face open air, and place it on a presterilized something, only to squirt water at the spores dropped and suck them up so fast that no spores could have possible touched anything (you hope)

Take a piece of tinfoil. sterilize with alcohol. poke a hole the size of the stem of the chose shroom. cut directly down the middle of foil, making the the hole: two half circles. put around the stem and tape the bottom. let mature, squirt water, suck up. after all, your fruiting chamber is supposed to be the main sterilized environment right? i dont know. just a query.

nope.

your fruiting chamber is not sterile.

nor do mushroom spores fall straight down.  they're so light any tiny current carry them away.  you might catch some on your foil but not many.  you'll catch a whole lot of contams though.


^^^ this was undisturbed completely for about 3 days prior to the picture.  notice the majority of the spores landed near the cake that didn't even pin yet? :wink:

clever idea, but won't work at all, sorry.

You can shoot sterilized water into a mushroom just prior to the veil tearing, shake it around, then draw it back out again. Use that spore solution to inoculate. If the cap hasn't opened and the veil hasn't began to tear, it will be a clean syringe.
