N0ob. Sporeworks 4pack?
    #10034457 - 03/24/09 08:14 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I've done all of the research i can, and i think im finally ready to go for grow :uptosomething:
The first step, after research, is gathering materials.
I took some time and read through some old threads, and more-or-less decided to go with Spokeworks as my spore suppliers.
Here's the thing..
the only option they have is a 4pack/syringes for $52.
Not that money is a HUGE issue, but do i really need 4 syringes?:justdontknow:
I mean, supposing i dont use them all,...how long could i even keep these before they go bad?
I guess what i really want to know is: how much should i buy my first time growing?

bro go to earthstounge and check there stuff out there spores last along time if you dont use them due to the way they make them. ben is good priced and dont try to bust your pocket. the first time i grew i bet i went threw a ton of 20 cc spore syringes but then agian i never been one for doing things on a small scale

A syringe will last from 6 months to a year. If you do not have the means to reproduce syringes or work of agar you will prolly use all 4!! Have Fun...e oh and -cowboy- I don't think that's a sponsored site tsk. tsk.

I have not bought syringes in FOREVER but I'm sure they will sell you less than 4,the 4 pack is probably a deal and a good idea because you should try a few strains to find out what you like but there are several other vendors here and you can get only one syringe if you like and in theory make it last indefinitely.And they last longer than you can imagine so that is not really an issue.You can put them in the fridge and completely forget about them and they will more than likely be fine when you find them later

I know they're not a sponsor anymore, but spores 101 is pretty damn good. They cooperate and are quite generous.
  Advice...no matter where you buy spores, DO NOT use usps standard shipping, IT SUCKS ASS!
ordered som LC's from 101 on two occasions. First one, with usps, took over a month and a half to arrive. Second, with UPS, came five days later. Both were shipped from the warehouse within 24 hours of my order.
  101 also sells individual syringes for a pretty good price.
good luck!

Myk, watch it. I have seen more threads about spores101 syringes being water/contam/etc than any other place. I don't mean to badmouth them, I am just saying that they're not a sponsor and I see tons of people failing with their products.

just get one you really like and after you harvest your first, make spore prints and make all the syringes you want.

umm...DO NOT buy from spores 101 they suck. just search it and youll find that many people have had bad experiences with them. theres a reason they are no longer a vendor..

and honestly man, i wouldnt blame usps for that i would blame sporeworks. i use usps all the time and not once have they let me down...but sporeworks just sucks..idk its your call though haha.

thats why i love my new experience with sporeworks
first i tried the 101 when i first got here cuz it was the first place i heard of after i became more familiar with spores they had already gotten here and the 101's all looked like the albino syringes u got cuz they were pretty much clear with a cpl small black specs
luckily i ordered the 4 pack and mentioned shroomery from sporeworks get a free costa strain and all my syringes have a beautiful black cloud in them.

and amazingly my 101's did nothing but grew some beautiful wet spot mold and an awesome disgusting smell. on the other hand and not sarcastically i inoc'ed my jars with the sporeworks stuff and not more then 2 days i already saw one of my jars growing mycelium. a week later today 18 out of 21 jars are colonizing with burma and golden teacher.

long story short, sponsors are way to go.
and it doesnt hurt to mention who sentcha

It's not sporeworks, shipping is a difficult and highly varied task. USPS could be great one time, but terrible the next (depending on many factors). I'm sure it's failure-rate is not significantly higher than any other shipper, though.

You were just unlucky :frown:. Sorry.

Again, thank you so much for taking the time to respond.

I just placed an order w/ Sporeworks so we'll see.  I did want to tell you that they also have a "we pick 'em" special, (http://sporeworks.com/store/catalog/Psilocybe-cubensis--Our-Choice-Special-Limit-four-syringes-per-p-16196.html), where you get 4 syringes for $9.50 but they pick the strains.  There's no guarantee of what you'll get and they may all be the same strain but for under 10 bucks it sounds like a great way to get a grow under your belt and if there are problems you didn't drop a lot of money.

My experience was i ordered from spores 101, and after 3 weeks i contacted them to tell them my spores hasnt arrived. They told me they got shipped, so i waited. being my first grow, i wanted spores NOW so i tried a vendor. I ordered the "4 fo 40" at lil shop of spores and they came in 4 or five days (via standard usps shipping) i knocked up my jars and a week later my 2 syringes from spores 101 came (a month and a week after i ordered) they were shipped usps as well, but the stamped date was only aweek before i got them. So they bassicly bull shitted me and told me they shipped, then shiped them 3 weeks after they told me that for whatever reason, then i got them like a week after they 'actually' shipped them. So yea, lil shop works.:thumbup:

Ohh, and the 2 syringes for 101, i havent used yet, so no info there. but i used 3 out of my 4 fo 40 from lil shop, and really didnt have any problems. Out of all my strains, my PESA strain seemed to be the best. real nice mycelium, and colonized pretty fast

I can see how one COULD fuck it up, but if you're careful, and follow instructions, its basically idiot-proof.

Can we all agree that this is a fairly easy project?

I can see how one COULD fuck it up, but if you're careful, and follow instructions, its basically idiot-proof.

Can we all agree that this is a fairly easy project?




yes its easy, nobody said the pf tek was hard...if your not retarded. now just do it, go to the store and buy some jars that are tapered.

Shroomiin,
Can you check the link a few posts above and tell me what you think about those jars?

Yeah, my spores 101 syringes have barely any spores in them...
One batch hasn't colonized in weeks.
I might have to do the same thing bud.

Those are the right ones, but with what you're paying on shipping you could almost buy 3 cases at your local grocery store.

It's 4 syringes but they pick the strains.

Yea, i thought so too, but...surprisingly, either im not thinking correctly, or i really cant seem to find these jars in public!
Grocery stores dont carry em... You think WalMart?

They probably don't have any spores in them. I have to say I've made a couple spore syringes that looked perfectly clear and worked great. You can't see individual spores, so that is a pretty bad way to gauge quality of syringes.

No one even notices that what he said about sporeworks isn't correct? They offer MANY other deals than the 4-pack you pick and 4-pack we pick options. Look around the site more, they have tons of stuff! You want to especially check out on the left of the page where it says spores, then click "spores for microscopy", that's where all the good stuff is.

I've found canning jars at bloom, giant, safeway, shoppers food, walmart and target.

In giant, they were in the same aisle as bread. So they're not always easy to find, either check each aisle or ask the manager for help finding them.  Most city people don't have a clue what a canning jar is.

damn i don't think i've ever seen a spore syringe with a fucking CLOUD of spores!
    Well, I guess since i've only ordered from them twice, I can't make a real claim about their reliability. But I ordered from 101 before I ever joined shroomery, so I was unaware various buyers had issues with them. I'll probably try a sponsor next time I need supplies.
sorry for a conflicting post

Some of the clearest syringes give the best results,unless there are ton of spores stuck to one another you should not be able to see them with the naked eye anyway.

This is absolutely ridiculous, but do i HAVE TO use the mason jars?
I really just cannot find them! :shrug:
I've seen some 'images', and a lot of guys on the forums use 'wide mouthed cups' and thing alike.
Being as though this is my first grow, would it be too ballsy of me to just go with the cups (which i could literally find anywhere)?
Would the result or outcome be significantly varie?

Sporeworks is very legit and most definitely sells syringes in singles. I'm fruiting amazonians and b+ right now that I got from them... Absolutely gorgeous.

Synthetic:

1) You can use those jars, they are "ball half pint regular mouths". If you can't find them at grocery stores, try hardware stores like Ace. Try smaller "mom and pop" type hardware stores than bigger chains like home depot. Alternatively, you could use also drinking glasses or the glad containers like a previous poster mentioned. If you look around you WILL find them.

2) Sporeworks also sells syringes by the singles if you don't want to dump $50. I would suggest looking at all the vendors on this site and seeing which one suits you best.

The thing about buying the jars online is that...
Like for instance, the Amazon.com link... The shipping it about %150 more than the actual value of the jars.
I'll check some local hardware stores, like Titan suggested, and see if i have any luck there..

Suppose i went with the glass cups,
how would i seal them to be able to sterilize them? Only foil?
I mean, the substrate will only be in the cup for sterilization, and inoculation. I just think it'll be difficult to keep the cups sterile without a lid, no?

Anyways, i'll keep lookin' :strokebeard:

In some places(Like where I am:slitwrist:) jars are "Seasonal" at some times of the year you can find them EVERYWHERE and sometimes you can not find them ANYWHERE:suicide: . Ive walked out of a store with 4 cases at times just because I know by the time I look again they will be no where to be found but who ever said hardware and mom and pop type stores is on the right track, it seems that most big chain type stores do not get them ..and you should not give them your money any way
