Collecting spore prints
« on: January 29, 2010, 12:27:44 AM »

Hello all, can you take the spores released from the mature heads of a new harvest and use those down the line to inoculate more cakes for further use?  or anything close to that.  or is it too easily contaminated to the point where it is easiest to purchase spore syringes?

If anyone has a method or way of making the best out of your purchased spores, let me know.  THanks!

taking a spore print for a syringe is easy, I think it was Malabar that told me about placing the cap of the mushroom on a spring ( something that elevateds above the water) and allowing the spores to drop directly in the water... easiest way I have found :)  I do all my spore prints in a bathroom/lab that is draft free and not used...  so it's like a giant clean box.... anyways good luck
