Anybody got any tips or links to same for growing shrooms from prints?  I can't go down the syringe path due to being in another country.

If you can get prints you can just make your own syringes. Just look it up. But if you can't get any syringes (i mean even empty ones) you can inoculate cakes or grains from a print. It is highly not recomended though because you would have to open up the jar after it has been sterilized and scrape some spores off of the print into the jar. As you can see there is a high risk of contamination. But it could be done if you were being super clean, which you should be anyways. Or, you could use agar, which I think is done with prints anyways (not sure, never done it).

Yeah man if you can't come up with a syringe which is probably the easiest way to transfer a print you can go to this site .. http://www.shroomery.org/23/Agar
and there are many teks there  for using agar.\
But your best bet is to come up with some type of syringe.

Agar is the best way to start working with prints.
If you can buy empty needles you can make your own syringes.
