I cut the circular bottom from a coffee filter and use that to cover the end of the straw. The biggest trick is not getting the filter paper all slobbery. That makes it hard to get the gemmae out of it. I also use a toothpick to loosen the gemmae enough to be easy to suck up.
I just had a flashback to a certain Bugs Bunny episode where BB meets up with a dart blowing savage that he calls, "nature boy". It ends up with "nature boy" swallowing his own dart, along with profuse coughing.
