Depending on how big and dark the print is, anywhere from 5-10 syringes to 1 print.

And welcome to 'topia!

welcome to 'topia!! Check the archives for sterile syringe making techniques

Usually I make 4-6 syringes from an average print

Welcome! Since you're first starting out, may I recommend you purchase a syringe from a reputable vendor for your first grow. You could make your own of course, but there are so many fatal(to your project) steps in the learning curve with this hobby, it's a good idea to jump one hurdle at a time. Sometimes, we end up with failures caused by multiple reasons and it's so frustrating, many new growers simply give up. Good luck and we're here to help!

Good advice from roger there, i ignored his advice when i first started out as i wanted to start growing Cyanencens before doing cubies...they were right alas...if you do have a go at making the sryinge yourself make sure you take great care with making it in sterile conditions etc

if all this is patronising then ignore where applicable.

Welcome! And you might want to take Rodger's advice. Making syringes can be a little touchy.

Thx for the answers...The fact is that the prints are a gift from a friend and here in Argentine is hard to get syringes...Only one vendor and only sporeprints...the only good thing is that they are really cheap!Posted Image
In these days i will try these tek...thx again!

The most important thing, especially with creating syringes, is a contam free enviorment. Distilled, boiled water, new, sterile syringes, washed walls, lysol'd room, gloves and mask(s) if no glovebox, etc...

Good Luck
