printing....where did i go wrong?
    #602420 - 04/08/02 07:17 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

the other day when i picked a fresh flush i wanted to make some prints, which i never did before. so i read a tek or two and ended up buying some playing cards to print on. i cleaned an area and the cards and the jars well with alcohol. i put the caps (nice and dark gills) on the playing cards and covered them with the jars. after two days all that happened was the caps inverted and dropped no spores. what do you think i did wrong?

did you wait till the caps had already dropped some spores before picking them? (you can see dark spots on the stem and area below the mushroom)

afoaf had MAJOR problems becasue of advice posted around here... the ambient humidity is WAAAAY to high where i live to print with a jar covering... the only way afoaf can get a cap to drop spores is to cover a pyrex dish with foil... not syran wrap or anything that is even near air tight... once afoaf switched to covering the pyrex dish wiht foil he never had problems again.... most teks around here make it seem like you want it air tight so the humidity will build up... well i think it all depends on the humidity where you live, anytime afoaf seals up the printing container all he gets is a soggy mess.... wait till you see just a little black on the stem, not too much... right about when the cap is flat....

I'm not sure about source(PF TEK ?) but someone said to use a washcloth under card to set glass on to remedy this very problem.

I'm never SURE about anything
