All I've heard was that increasing the innoculent will decrease colinization time. I've also heard, but not confirmed that only about 1/3rd of the spores are capable of producing fruits, so maybe your theory makes some sense.

What you are doing with this method is a multi-spore germination. Basically you will germinate many strains, the most aggresive ones will ultimately take over and colonize the fastest. It really isn't a matter of number of spores, unless you assume that the more spores, the more chances of successful germination. The key really is to isolate a vigourous strain, that is the best method to aquire large flushes and large, fast growing shrooms.

One word of caution...

If you do decide to use half of a syringe remember the size of the jar that you are injecting into. If you inject half of a 10cc syringe into a 1 quart jar...no problem:-)

But if you inject that much into a half pint jar you're going to add alot more water to the substrate. You will have a higher probablility of getting puddles in the bottom of your jar and thats not good.

Just something to consider.
