Making spore syringe question
    #877751 - 09/11/02 12:48 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

When my friend make spore syringes using a shot glass as outlined in some of the teks. the spores tend to stick to the side of the shot glass and they will clump up in the bottom and u can't get all of them, when he wipes the shot glass clean after making a syringe, the napkin is just black from wasted spores. And my friend wishes he could find a way to get ALL of the spores. Would anyone have any tips, or does anyone know if the micron magick spore spreader kit thing is worth buying, it looks like it would work good if the spores don't stick to the sides. Allright, thanks for the help in advance!!!!

Yeah, that's not my concern though, my biggest problem is the spores sticking to the glass, what do I do about that??

go buy a few large baby food jars.
dump the food out...and throw them in the dishwasher.
then pressure cook them.

you can put a hole in the lid.....and apply some silicone....and let it dry.
wipe the inside of the lid with 99% alcohol.

you just made a cheaper and better product.

I love using these cause you can shake up the jar!

good luck!

I do knock em down w. a stream of water, it just seems that they inevitably always clump up at the bottom and u can't suck em in w. out sucking in a bunch of air. And if I use a half pint jar, w. only 10 cc's of water, that's not much and it seems like you would just spread the spores all over the glass and they'd get stuck. But perhaps I could eliminate this by putting in enough spores to make 5 or 6 syringes at once. I'm basically just looking for a way to be able to suck up the majority of the spores I scrape into the jar, shot glass, etc.

I find the same.. you put the spores in, add water, suck it all up but heaps is left behind. So you just empty the syringe, forcefully, back into the shot glass. It stirs everything into suspension so you can just suck it back up, nothing left behind.

Allright, I'll just try emptying the whole syringe into the glass and just keep trying harder, but while I've got u guys on the line, my friend has a jar of some liquid mycelium solution, and is having trouble sucking up the mycelium cuz it's too big. So he can only suck up the small pieces rather than the big healthy chunks, any tips?!?!
