Visiongrowkits
    #11390637 - 11/05/09 02:31 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Just wanted to detail my experience with visiongrowkits in case anyone else is looking to order from them.

I wanted to just order pre-sterilized substrate jars because I did not want to buy a pressure cooker, as I've never used one before and can't imagine using one again.  They had a decent rating on eBay and their prices were fine, so I went with it.

I ordered six jars from their eBay store two months ago.  After one month and no package, I messaged them asking what's up.  Never got a reply and sent another message the next week.  I also emailed their website's customer service twice, with all of the eBay information and everything else they'd need to know.

Never got a response to any of it.

After two months (past the date when I could get eBay involved), I gave them a negative feedback rating.  IMMEDIATELY afterward, I got a message asking if I'd remove the rating if they sent my order and gave me a refund.  They said my original order was sent to the wrong address, though that doesn't explain to me why they couldn't answer any of my messages.  Really guys?  I said that I would remove the rating, but asked for a doubled order (I bought six, so I requested twelve) instead of a refund.

Anyway, I finally got my jars, but there were just six of them.  No refund, no extras.  Basically, these guys ignored me until I fought back and then lied to me to get me to cooperate with them.  Bad business, if you ask me.

And now that it's winter and too cold (I think) to grow (I was just going to let them incubate in the warm attic), my jars and spores are going to have to sit until springtime.

Can I let them sit for that long or should I just try to make do with the situation I've ended up in?

your normal house temp is fine for them to grow.. between 68 and 75 works great

EDIT---

:pm: me if you have questions about lasers

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.

Ah cool, thanks for the info.  I guess I'll use half of the syringe in these and then the other half in something else.  I just bought the jars for the sterility.

It's not hard to sterilize your own BRF jars. With the money you blew on that kit, you could have bought enough jars and substrate for several grows.
