Image if sending living genetics were as simple as mailing a spore print to a friend. Well now they are!
#blottertek Utilizes a piece of paper towel like a mycelial sponge. You place a few drops of your desired LC onto the paper towel the mycelium fragments adhere to the paper you shake off the excess moisture and fold into a piece of foil, throw it into a tiny plastic bag and send it off in the mail.

The thought process of this was to figure out a way to send living genetics on the cheap. And sending a colonized paper the size of a few blotter led t the development of #blottertek.

This process can also be done with a single colonized grain which you can press flat in a folded piece of aluminum foil fold the edges in and ship in the mail.

Both techniques sending living genetics, weighing under 40grams and can be shipped via letter mail post for the cost of only a stamp. What's not to like.

Once you receive the letter you can simply put the sample in grain, in an LC, on to a petri dish.

It's been forever not sure how to attach pictures. I have a video on the clock app about this tek.

It reminds me of the phrase, where there is a will, there is a way.  Extremely cool, I'd like to try it out, so I'll mail it to myself and have a GO (kidding of course).   :laugh:

Genius. Could also send in a zip baggie, which are usually sterile until opened.
