Whats the point of making syringes dark?
    #889412 - 09/17/02 08:31 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

I don't know, but I'm thinking, I recieved vendor made syringes that were crystal clear, with the exception of one spore clump in the middle, about the size of half an M&M.

Now, from a spore print the size of a door handle, could you not make about 15 , 10cc syringes?

Why bother making 4 instead of 15 , just so they are very , very dark.

Some people feel better with dark syringes. I make light syringes for myself and don't mind at all when I get a light one from a vendor.

Do dark syringes make colonization proceed faster? I wouldn't thnk the change would be much, the spores still have to germinate and colonize, and at 4 colonization points I don't see why a few more spore would make it go much quicke, if at allr???

I don't think the dark syringes make it any faster unless the light one was REALLY sparsely populated with spores. I tend to agree with matts. The dark ones will introduce more spore races that will compete with each other.

if someone gives you a dark syringe, just make more from it. i do. you can pack 10 syringes in one and thats a damn good way of transporting 10 syringes worth of spores

If you want to stockpile or transport spores, do so in the form of a spore print.  It's far more efficient this way!  :grin:

It's all just hype.

Super dark syringes result in more tomentose mycelium than rhizomorphic, among other less desirable characteristics. Yet vendors hype it to unknowing cultivators just to drum up their product. Perpetuating a myth to hype a product. Hardly seems in line with the stated purpose of this website, huh?

PM me with any cultivation questions.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.

Take a "clean"  (as sterile as you can get it) pint jar with metal or plastic lid with a tiny hole in the lid, near the edge. Fill about 3/4 full of sterile water. Inject dark spore syringe into it. Cover the tiny hole & shake the hell out of the jar. Then, with new or sterilized syringes, draw out of the pint jar.

just buy a sporeanator from mushroom maddness, and put some steralized water in it, then get a dark syringe and squirt some of its contents into the sporanator, then shake the sporeanator then get an empty syringe and fill it with the contents of the sporeanator.  :grin:

What????  Please explain your logic. This makes no sense to me. :confused:

I'm with you, TM. Would that also mean the darker & heavier a print is, more chance of contam's. I don't think so.

think about it this way, unless you're working in a super sterile lab you'll never make a sporeprint that's entirely free of stray contams, even if it's only 1 little bacterium. If you make 20 syringes from this print you've got a 1 in 20 chance of a contamed syringe, but if you put the whole print into 1 syringe you've got a 100% likelyhood of that 1 bacterium going into the syringe.
