Non dropping spores
    #876264 - 09/11/02 03:38 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

High All,

Some things never happen untill you read about it.
Well I was reading a Stamets book and encountered some info about caps which do not tend to drop there spores. And what you could do about that.

I realised that it only happens now and then and just 1 out of 10.

2 days later 12 caps holding there spores. After 24 hrs I dropped some clean H2O on the caps to help humidty. But the foil stayed clean.

The strain was Gulfcoast, any help would be nice :smile:

I find it helps to allow the caps to dry out a little while printing. This seems to help the caps drop spores.

Both likely reasons.

yea i just harvested some KS and did a little experiment with 2 caps.  #1's veil was completely broken and #2's veil about 1/3 to 1/2 broken.  #1 gave me a dark print and number 2 gave me a few specks, hardley enough to see.  sorry just had to throw that out there in this post! :tongue:

Could be the strain as well. Penis envy is notorious for not dropping spores. Or dropping very few.

Just a thought.

I had problems with getting spores to drop from the nicest fruits of my Cambodians and Keepers Creeper.

I found out later that the cap sealed so well against the tin foil, that nothing dropped. Just condensation underneath.

I make sure to set them as to avoid this.

- That Thai Pink Buffalo print you replaced for me barely had enough to see, but i checked my jars the other day and they're coming along nicely. Thanks Eric.

You're the reason I'm able to do what I love to do>:mushroom2:
