ok I was going to order 3 Spore syringes from the sponsor sporelab and i was wondering how many cc's usually come in the order, and how many half pint jars will they inculate? and if they dont do many, what are some ways that i can improve production? because if i dont get alot of spores for a large amount i was going to try to inculate some more with the infected substrate that i already had, oh yea its my first time so im hoping for a big turn out.

I haven't ordered from there yet so I don't know if they are 10cc or 12cc. If you figure 1cc per jar, you're looking at either 30 or 36 half pint jars.

10-12 cc per syringe i believe. can do 24 jars easy per syringe if u go lite on the spores when innoculating.

If swiy is not in a hurry to colonize jars, a few drops per innoculation point is enough (4 innoculation points per jar). This way swim gets about 36 jars per syringe.

spellbinder_7 is correct that the standard innoculation is 1cc per jar.

You can always look into LC's..that can make you spores go a long way as well as speed up colonization times. look in the Vaults under LC..there are may different TeKS

just asking for failed/empty sectors trying to do 24-36 jars with one syringe, --:thumbdown:
each jar should get at least 1 cc
which means 1 syringe per dozen jars max.

I agree with oibchip, liquid culture is most definitely the way to go. Your syringes will last forever. I've been using the same two syringes for like 2 years now and I can still squeeze some more juice out of em. All you need is .5cc - 1cc at a time and you could do hundreds of jars from that liquid culture if you are really judicious with it. If you are new to this hobby and are not sure about LC, I'd still recommend setting aside a few cc's just to try it out. Once you perfect it you will be sooooo happy you did. There's a ton of great teks in the vaults, I am partial to karo and nutritional yeast myself but there are many good easy approaches. Good Luck to you spellbinder!

You could also just make prints and then use them, as soon as you get your first flush, you could have enough spores for hundreds of jars. Just another way to keep the spore supply going forever for the price of tin foil:pirate:

Prints are soooo easy if you have the patience to wait for some big caps to open wide. One large print can make a dark syringe that gives a strong innoculation solution that colonizes fast.

Actually, we use the 10cc syringes but fill them past full so they are closer to 11. Trying to do say, 20 jars with one syringe could result in thinning the solution too much and end up with more failure than success. I usually suggest doing 8 - 10 jars for optimum success. Once you get your first flush, taking prints and reusing the syringe is easy and your set for life!
