I wanted to ask a question about printing.
I think I remember reading somewhere before that you should allow some spores to drop for a few hours, then transfer the cap to another piece of foil/tyvek/whatever your using for the final print?

What I'm asking is, should I just let this cap finish printing on this piece of foil? Or let it sit for a few hours, then put the cap on another piece and leave it over night?


Thanks!

do you want just 1 print or several ?
no need to discard the first print esp. from indoor grown specimens.

well I'd like to get as many as possible so I can have a couple for me and distribute the rest here..I know that wont happen off of one cap. I have a few more prints I did this way, as long as I'm going in the right direction...
Thanks for the quick response.

you can get a few good ones off each cap.
just move it to a new surface once a day
until it stops.

Oh, so I should only leave it on 1 surface for a few hours, It looks a little dark right now, but its only been maybe 6 hours. Should I leave it a little longer then start another?

Wow, I never thought about making multi-prints from one cap... I just make em insanely dark. :) heh Very good idea though, gonna give this a shot for the heck of it n see what happens with some of these heavy spore droppers.

Sounds like a trick for spore vendors who sell prints.

Sounds like you've got a heavy spore producer there!

Hillbilly's are the same way. My FOAF has gotten 3 or 4 good prints off of each one. Five from one, once!

Just look through your cover pint at the foil under the cap. If it's dark enough for you, slap another piece of foil under and print again!

Once the stop dropping spores, stop printing.

Remember, you only need two spores out of the millions that will be on even a very light print for it to work...

You should be able to get at least two, and usually three prints from each cap. A very dark print is not desirable as the spores will be all clumped up together and hard to disburse.

Well, I got 2 decent prints off 1 cap, started a third, but a few hours into it, nothing had dropped and the cap started looking a little wet, so 2 good ones and that was it..... one is up one the free prints thread.......

The other will go to the print drive. :)

There are some unscrupulous vendors who make many prints from one cap and sell them as if they are complete prints but if it is a heavy sporulater then it is a good idea to switch paper a couple times to avoid thick clumps of spores.
