So why do people want prints more over syringes? Is it because they can make many syringes out of a print?

I know these are silly questions, but......i'd be stupid not to ask and pretend to know.

Has anyone ever taken a cap before it sporulates and lay it on a mound of dirt? Would anything happen or does the spores need to be hydrated?

thx guys,
CAL

no.
cubies don't grow on dirt
they grow [in the wild] near cow pies.
one could try inoculating cow pies
but it's very ineffective,
there are better ways.

one print can be used to make many syringes.

Yu can spawn colonized grain to cow pies in the field. Just take some colonized grain and stick it into cow shit. That method is probably very ineffective though.

Also many like prints because they are easy to ship. Stick on in an envelope and there ya go. Having a big round syringe that can break, leak or be seen as something dangerous is something some tend to keep away from.

Plus I would rather have A homemade syringe that I made than one that someonelse made unless it is a sponsor.

or does the spores need to be hydrated?

fresh spores from a fresh cap are moist, in essence pre-hydrated

just dying to get some Extract.


then get serious and follow a real TEK
and stop looking for fast easy shortcuts
like dumping spores on a pile of dirt
or you'll just end up wasting those sporez.

prints are also better for storage. you may get a print of a strain that you want to grow out, but dont have the time right now. its a lot easier and more stealth to slide a print in a book than to try to hide a syringe imho.

I agree,I just used a Haw print I got from the last BNL contest. Not only that but with the print (medium size,dark) I got 120cc worth of spore solution and I could still see lotsa spores floating around in the water so I coulda got much more...what a diff from a 10cc syringe,especially if your buying them.Prints rule either way IMO.
