well i am quite new here ,i d like to practice a bit so a couple of thinks

i notice while printing,i use an old tapper to dry some mushrooms

,when dried i notice that the spores is on the bottom,really black prints

so i cut that tapper bottom and use it as a printing material.

i dont have my camera yet,i post some pics soon,imagine old good plastic taperware u have..

another good idea is to print in paper use for ur printers(the good one

plastic)really cool :rasta:

I guess you are saying tapper is like tupperware? I use aluminum foil. To store it you can stick it in a little zip lock bag or fold it.

i don't recommend printing on paper,
hard to get them all back off
plus you get paper fibers in the mix
triggers premie germination
foil for me is best,
open faced in ziplock baggie like so-

i just happen to be learning printng techniques.

hip, why open faced and how do you keep both sides of your foil sterile?

are the inside of those little ziplocks already sterile or do you need to take extra steps to do that?

open faced so one can inject sterile water into the baggie when making syringes,
no need to open it to unfold print.

baggies are essentially sterile from the factory until opened to insert print,
do that in a glovebox.

to sterilize both sides
cut up a bunch
and wrap the pile inside more foil,
seal it and bake at 350*F for 60 minutes.
leave sealed inside foil until you
place inside glovebox then unwrap, print and bag.

Could you just wipe down the foil with isopropyl?

Also, do you just try to pull off the cap before it sporulates? Is it a matter of timing?

My FOAF is hopeing that just wiping the foil with 91% Isop Alchohol and spraying well with Oust will work?
Please let us know?

Oust leaves a residue but iso is ok , once it evaporates off.
i do spray the outside of the baggie with Oust when i go to make syringes,
then it too is clean to touch while working.
then i just rip off the ziplock [easier than opening when gloved]
squirt in some water to wet the print,
rub the print off
and draw up the concentrated spore solution in a syringe
then i dilute that by injecting a ported jar of sterile water of the
desired amount, a print like shown above can easily make 5-10 syringes.

jetson-
when printing i never pick a cap until/unless i see it dropping first,
many do not print well if at all
if picked before they start dropping.

I just wipe mine with isopropyl. It is the 91% I think. Anyway it is over 90%. Wipe both sides and as soon as it has evaporated I lay the cap on it.

I spray the room w/ oust were i am working jic.

here is something to know about wiping the foil w/ iso. whether its 70 or 90+% the rest is water. the iso will evep quick but will leave small amount of h20 (thats why 90% better, leaves less h2o). wont hurt the cap, but make sure the foil is good and dry before you seal up.

i learned that the hard way:eusa_shif unfolded some stickey gooey purple stuff:puke:

that's why i wrap a bunch and bake,
no need to waste more time drying each piece of foil.

can you wrap a bunch of foil in foil and put it in a PC with no water instead of an oven?

no, unsafe to run a dry pc
you might warp the sides/seal

but you could do it with water
provided you elevate the foil
well above
the boiling water
so it stays dry inside.

i like to plan ahead,
might want to mail that print, trade it or even sell it
in which case tupperware is a PITA , imho.
hard to stick 20 of them in an envelope.

My FOAF puts a bunch of print squares in a pint jar and PCs them while sterilizing other things. Always good to have extra print squares lying around.
