Hey, I ordered a bunch of syringes from sporeworks some time ago and I prepared some jars and...well, nothing. I was wondering if this is a common reaction. Before anyone says that I haven't waited enough time or that maybe I made a mistake I should tell you that it has been two weeks since inoculation and there are absolutely no signs of growth, and that each prior attempt at growing using the same method (pf tek) have been succesful, so I can only assume that it is the spores that are at fault. Any thoughts?

I know nothing of sporeworks. A few comments though. You said you ordered them awhile ago, spores do not last indefinitely though I cannot provide a timetable. You mentioned that there was no growth which likely indicates error(s) from you. Bad spores will at least provide little growth. Read through the TEKs VERY carefully looking for any little detail that could have set you off, such as using filtered water instead of spring or stream water (i.e. filtered water doesn't remove the chlorine).

When i say that i ordered them some time ago, i mean that i received them and used them some time ago. i used them the day after they arrived in the mail. i dont think i made any errors since i have grown a number of times before. no growth could indicate an error on their part, which is what i'm assuming. I haven't had any contamination growth which means that i followed the proper sterility protocal. the only other option is that i fried the spores, which i didnt because i didnt provide a situation where they could be fried.

You should have seen some type of growth by now but some strains are a little slow. if you don't see any growth in another week you may want to contact the vendor, but it may be your fault and your bizz wasn't clean enough. either way, if the vendor is a good buisiness man he will send you out another syringe at no charge. but thats just my opinion.

I've ordered from sporeworks and my spores were fine. I've also innoculated jars that have done nothing for up to 3 weeks, mind you these jars were innoculated when I was an impatient fool and didnt practice sterile procedures, but mycelium did grow, along with green mold and cobweb mold.

Nah, it most likely isn't the vendors fault or your fault. Mail irradication is being used in full swing now in most of the country to prevent terrorism. The post office sends the packages through a radiation chamber to kill off any other spores than may be harmful to humans.. ie anthrax. So mushroom spores are part of the process. I have heard a few people complain about this recently, including one friend of mine who is an EXCELLENT and seasoned grower, he never had this problem once in his years of growing.. but recently with two differnt vendors he has had the same issues, no growth!

So this may be your problem.

from the sticky thread at the top of this forum:
Quote:

2. Have you contacted and recieved an answer from the vendor you ordered from?




It is my experience that all the respected vendors here (sporeworks definitly being respected) will do their customers right for all reasonable, and many unreasonable complaints.

Even though sporeworks does not sell their spores for anything other than microscopy, I bet if you told them that you weren't able to see any spores on the microscope slide you prepared, they would send replacements.

Always contact customer service 1st if there is a problem....

I placed an order from sporeworks awhile ago.

The spores, by the time I got around to research, were already 8 months old. For whatever reason, and my lack of sterile procedures, they barely grew. I thought there was an issue with the spore lifespan, etc.

I just ordered a strain from TLG, and battled it against my over ONE YEAR OLD strain (same strain) from Sporeworks. Needless to say, once I changed my sterile procedures, and got a bit better with my skills, they are moving at the EXACT same speed.

So it looks like my old ass 1yr old spores, are going just as good as my few week old spores.

Vendor is excellent.

Just tell them you had a problem. " I put solution on some slides and no spores were present, can you help!!!"

My friend recently ordered 2 syringes from sporeworks and had the same problem. Tried two seperate batches, no growth at all. First batch was made within days of receiving package. Second batch done two weeks later. Nothing. And he's grown on and off for 2 years, so he's not a complete idiot when it comes to shrooms...
Either they sent out some bad syringes or the post office is really blasting the mail with them rays. Either way, it really sucks.

I have the same thing going with my Sporeworks spores not growing. No contamination, they are in a fucking heated terrarium, what the fuck? I just reinoculated them with another syringe.
I usually order from TLG, but their mail-orders have been closed, and now the credit card is closed too. I was in a hurry, so I couldn't sign up for paypal, so i ordered again from sporeworks.
this mail irradication tthing has me worried.

Yeah I think the mail irradication thing is the culprit, which really sucks for all of us!  I don't have any way of getting spores other than mail orders..  so if the spores I supply for my Iguana to grow at his farm are no good I guess he will have  to end his career of growing mushrooms..  which really sucks. 

I just placed an order with Ralphster, we'll see..  if I get no results this time around i'll know for sure it's the mail being blasted.  Every jar can not have any germination.. no way, i've been growing to fucking long, i've got the procedure down cold.  I can't be anything other than the post office fucking us.  :frown:

I have ordered and received spore syringes from Sporeworks and they were always in great condition. In my view they are the best vendor at the Shroomery.

Syringes I ordered from Sporeworks came UPS, not postal service. Are they irradiating too? Inspection of a stringe of Mazatapec with a magnifying glass showed a descent amount of spores in solution. If you don't have a microscope, check them with a mag glass. Too early to tell if they worked or not, in incubation for 8 days now....

I ordered with Ralph a few weeks ago, bham, 3 days I had germination on Rye, 8 days I had full colonization of quart jars.

Haven't ordered from Sporeworks in a few years, they were good but the time on shipping was kind of slow. I don't order spores all that much cuz I reproduce my own usually, but when I do Ralph always gets my order because of his quick shipping and quality product.

Sporeworks is a great vendor as are all the shroomery sponsors. The inability to see the spore print under your microscope can be caused my many many things and is usually not the vendors fault.

What about starting a new habbit of sending the spores in plastic bags filled with lead? Maybe some kind of buck shot? It will stop any nasty rays... Just a thought.

Umm, I know this isn't the cultivation forum, but please allow me to make a few things clear. Chlorine is NOT going to have much of an impact on your spores. SWIM uses city water and has no problem with it. Second, if he is getting NO growth, sterile thchnique is not an issue. No contams = sounds pretty sterile to me.

Like mycofile says, contact them and they'll take care of you.
