    #1614342 - 06/06/03 11:58 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

9 days ago i inoculated 12 1/2 jars still theres no sign of colonization- i didnt fuck up anything, and im pretty sure i should have seen something in at least one out of the 12 jars- but anyways does anyone have any experience from ordering syringes from sporemagic.com- thats where i got it from and im begging to wonder if they were any good.

i recently got ecuador syringes from sporemagic.com...when they arrived i was, to say the least, disappointed a bit (completely clear syringes with a few spores floating here and there). anyway, i too inoculated 12 1/2 pint jars just 5 days ago and i have yet to see any signs of colonization at all. makisupa09, please keep me updated on how yur jars turn out. if anyone has used spores from sporemagic.com please let us know how they turned out.

Your stories ring a bell...I also purchased a spore syringe some time ago (though not from sporemagic.com), which was completely clear; no sporae to be seen. I inoculated some small batches, but nothing happened (except from some contams here and there, and my patience being tested to the limit :smile: ).

Therefore, I prefer to make my own spore syringes from sporeprints. Concluding, I find that sporeprints are better value for your money.

Hello,

Spores are microscopic, they can not be seen by the naked eye. The black clumps that you sometimes see are spore clusters. It some times takes a while for colonization to take hold. Just be patient.

I have never heard of the company that you ordered from before. I would always suggest to order all supplies from Shroomery approved vendors. They are all legit companies. Try to keep your business "local", to support our community.

Peace

Theres no reason to be disappointed there. PF always sent clear syringes to AFOAF, and he always had positive results not to mention awesome sterility, and they were no doubt the biggest name in the business. AFOAF recently inoculated 6 jars with an EC syringe that was reasonably dark, and they have yet to show signs of germination...

Hey...I have ordered from spore magic twice and had great results, just because the syringe is clear doesn't mean shit. Try innoculating 6-8 jars instead of 12, from my experience 10 jars or more is pushing it for 1 syringe, unless it is dark as fuck. Just do six and make some prints. Peace.

I ordered PF classic from spore magic and innoculated 4 jars with 2.5cc's each jar and after 3 weeks there was still no sign of colonization. Take my advice : FUCK SPORE MAGIC !

My faery godmother got an Ecuador syringe from Spore Magic - yeah it was pretty much clear but it still had millions of spores just like any other clear syringe. She innoculated and germinated, took ~5 or so days I believe but growth was as good as normal. She just cased them Tuesday and is anticipating the fruit to come.

A clear syringe means nothing, as the others said spores are microscopic. After 12 days I wouldn't worry about your jars EQ can take a lil while longer to colonize. Are you keeping them at 80 degrees if you have them in a cooler place they will take longer to colonize. I'd give them more days.

I bought some from www.earthstongue.com a little slow
(I thought it was taking forever, turns out our neighbor
had them for a week, still was like 4-5 days past what they
said would be the longest watit though) I havn't used them yet
actually my birdseed is soaking as we speak (just bought a new 8qt PC today too), I'm using 6Tango's
WBS tek for the spawn, then I'm going to use ShroomGod's wheat-straw method,I got B+ (20cc), Amazonian(40cc) and Golden teachers(20cc), they are really cheap at ET's, and have 20cc syringes

Anyway some of mind were almost all clear, but others were loaded
sometimes it takes a few seconfnds to see the clumps

Pat got her order from SporeMagic about a week ago. The spores do not show up at all, even under a very good magnifying lamp. But after improving the temp one of her jars is showing "hair" she is very close to seeing some real growth in that jar. Of course that is one of many that show no growth of any kind. To early to tell yet but she didn't have high hopes at all for the entire experiment and now things could be looking up.

Clear really doesn't mean shit but she can usually see a "fuzzy" texture to the water under this magnifier... Don't know if that means much but I think Uncle Mike might be cutting some corners.

Little shop of spores is king, theyve got some nice healthy spores and are pretty reasonably priced.
