Too Much Moisture?

Recommended Posts

Gunrunner79

I'm not sure if I'm in the right forum for this question, but if you're using cakes and you inject more spore solution than you need, will the excess moisture cause a problem, like contamination, or have you just wasted some spores?

both. it might not always cause a problem if you inject more than 1cc, but it can. you definitely wasted spores however. unless it was syringes from that one company that sells watery syringes.

I think it was like 3-4 cc, not sure exactly. Pressed the plunger on the syringe too dangit hard.

If they're pint jar cakes it's probably a little much but I personally would just let it ride. May take a little longer to colonize but It might work out. Cakes have always been a little forgiving for me as long as I used sterile procedure.

How many cakes are you making?

What strain is it?

Cakes. I have three and they're colonizing but really slowly. I think it was a basic Mexican strain. I'm not incredibly confident in the source of the spores.

      That is a load of fantastic information right there ^^^^^^

      Got it. I thought that was what you meant @phish but I wanted to be sure I hadn't misinformed someone. Thanks for clarifying that guys. Been a while since I've been around and I'm getting old so I could have forgotten or it could have changed either one.

      Yes they are sponsor's, the only sponsor, but as phish mentioned we control no aspects of that part of the site. Phish couldn't have said it better, not sure what's going on with SOS!

      SOS puts out a great product in the long run. But I’m the kind of guy that likes to keep a couple good vendors at hand for my supplies.  Some carry exotics or edibles that the other doesn’t, at different times. “Affiliation” was probably a poor choice of words. We have no working relationship, influence or or any sway of any kind with SOS

      Yeah my phone is old AF, but until it craps out on me I'm not buying another one. I know you can buy little macro lenses for them, since mine doesn't have a macro setting, but oh well.  Thanks for the info though, may just give that a try next time!
