I like a big blob on the top and bottom of the lid, it's just a tad more secure (IMHO) and it takes more sticks. You can make the blob last even longer by injecting on an angle and going through a different spot each time you stick it.

Your LC should be ready in 7-14 days (incubation temperature and how often you shake it will make a big difference). Once the solution becomes pretty uniformly cloudy, it's ready. You don't have to wait for it to get thick (it's harder to work with if you do).

when i flame the needle tip can i just push it right through, because silicone can handle 400f+ or something like that

no, that would melt it.
flame is much hotter than just 400*F.

Hip is right if you feel the need to flame the needle flame it red hot and then wipe with alcohol soaked papaer towel and also wipe the injection port with alcohol soaked paper towel before injecting into it(and make sure to use an airport or else it will suck in air around the needle and contaminate the lc)

Yes, Isopropyl alcohol will work, The super cheap rubbing alcohol. Itll be with the Hygeine or First Aid supplies.

I always use 90% anyone use 70% and if so please state why?I just think alcohol is the sterilant so why not go with the higher percentage when it is the same price.

keep in mind to allow 24 hours after drying before attempting anything w/ those lids. Its worth the time for a better bond / seal.

order rtv silicone, and many tyvek samples and by many i mean alot of samples alot i tell you.

all i need is rubbing alcohol, or something similair

how many lc's can i make with .75 spore water, i know its not alot, but since each drop contains alot of sprores maybe i could stretch the amount to 3 lcs.

I myself would recommend 2 lc's at the most. I have a question for you now night,have you even taken any time to read any of the archives or read in the forums?? Because i am new to getting into lc's myself and i read on lc's in the old board archives and the forums and just about every question you have asked is anwsered in either or so i recommend you go take a look!!!!! If you have taken a look and still have questions that is fine but dont go asking all these questions if you havent even bothered trying to look them up( you have to meet us half way man).Now i am not busting your balls or anything but i have done the same thing asking all kinds of repetitive questions and shit(and i think it bothered a few people,so i tried to stop doing so)but once again like i said if you have read and cant find the anwsers that is fine but at least try to find them,ok:)

Once an LC is colonized, you can use a small amount of it to start other LCs...
