Subsequently, one may also ask, how many ml is a spore syringe?

A syringe contains 20 ml of spore solution, enough to inoculate 6-7 liters of substrate. Just drop a few milliliter in every corner of the mushroom substrate and you are ready to go.

Beside above, how many cc are in a spawn bag? We rec- ommend a total of 3-5 cc's of spores per spawn bag. ⇒ Make sure you inject in multiple locations to help spread your spore solution around.

Subsequently, one may also ask, how many cc spores are in a jar?

Use 1 cc per jar. This will allow the syringe to inoculate 10 jars. You can actually use more spore solution per jar (speeds colonization) but then you won't get as many jars per syringe.

How many cc's are in a quart jar?

yes perfect. 1 cc per jar.

How much will a 10cc spore syringe yield?

How much Yield from 10cc syringe? 10cc will innoculate about 10-12 jars.

What is a mushroom spore syringe?

Generally a spore syringe is used to drop spores and water mixture onto slides for microscopy research or to inoculate sterile substrates with a specific strain of mushroom spores.

How do you rehydrate spores?

The spores need time to hydrate in the water. This will take at least 24 hours, but 2-3 days is even better (just room temperature or incubator). You can also save them for a later moment. Spore syringes can be kept in the fridge at 2-4 °C for about 2-6 months.

How long does it take mycelium to colonize jars?

1 pint jars take between 3 and 5 weeks to reach full colonization (but do not forget to wait at least 7-10 days after full colonization).

What is the PF TEK method?

PF Tek is a method of mushroom cultivation pioneered by Robert McPherson, aka Psylocybe Fanaticus. The sterilized "PF jar" is then injected with a solution containing spores and water from a syringe, creating a one step procedure for reliably growing mushrooms indoors.

How long do spore syringes last?

Spore syringes do not last as long because eventually the water develops bacteria. A general guideline is 8 to 12 months. Although we have heard many reports of 2 to 5 years. If your spore prints do not germinate within the usual time frame then rehydrate them in sterile water for 24 hours.

How many spore syringes does a spore print have?

Anyone's normal spore print is good for one dark 10ml syringe or 2 normal 20ml syringes. Others can be enough for many more syringes.

How are mycelium cakes born?

When you birth the cakes, dunk them in fresh, cold water for 12-24 hours and then roll them in moist vermiculite before putting them in the fruiting chamber. You can move the stalled/slow ones out of that tub.

When should cakes be born?


Birthing the Cakes
Once a cake is completely covered in white mycelium, wait at least 2-3 more days before taking the cake out of the jar. When you are ready, and in a fairly clean room, begin transferring the cakes from their jars into their fruiting chamber (described in the next step).

Can you drown mycelium?

You don't want to soak them too much longer than the 18-24 hours, because a longer soaking can 'drown' the mycelium. It's best to place a cinderblock or something heavy on top of the soaking logs so they stay completely submerged.

How long does mycelium take to grow?

It will just take longer for the mycelium to grow if it isn't near the optimum temperature. It takes around 3 to 4 days to see the first hairs of mycelium forming as white spots and 3 to 5 weeks to let the fungus get to a 100% foothold in all the substrate, depending on temperature conditions.

How do you inoculate grain spawn?

Inoculating Grain Jars from Mycelium on Agar
  1. Step 1: Gather Your Materials. In order to make first generation grain spawn, you first need to get some properly prepared and sterilized grain.
  2. Step 2: Set Up in a Clean Environment.
  3. Step 3: Grab some mycelium.
  4. Step 4: Inoculate.
  5. Step 5: Shake the Jar.
  6. Step 6: Allow to Colonize.

How many cc's are inoculate?

Use 2-4 cc of spore solution per one pound bag. If you are using a liquid culture you can use up to 6 cc per one pound bag. Now you must swiftly cover the inoculation hole with your tape as you withdraw your needle.

How do you inoculate a substrate jar?


Remove the needle guard and insert the needle through the lid hole. Tilt the syringe body back towards the center of the lid with the needle tip touching the glass. This distributes the spore water down the side of the jar, giving a good inoculation down the side of the substrate cake.

How do you grow magic Mushies?

The basic PF Tek method is pretty straightforward: Prepare your substrate of brown rice flour, vermiculite, and water, and divide it between sterile glass jars. Introduce spores and wait for the mycelium to develop. This is the network of filaments that will underpin your mushroom growth.

What should I do after inoculation?

The dry verm on top with holes exposed is fine if you keep them in a sealed tupperware container. Open it up and fan it every now and then. Spray a little lysol over the container (closed and then opened) before and after handling.
