Next time i will have my scaple in the box. I have a nice metal inoculation loop but the spores where just really stuck i bent the loop trying to scrape them up might be fine in a few days will see. Was reading of using a drop of sterilized water to lift the spores off but don't want to put water on my prints not yet anyway.
I use an iso wiped flat head screw driver bit most of the time to scrape spore. Got lots of of them so why not?
I do prefer inoculation loops, however.
use whatever you have even if it’s a butter knife
