What is a Dark Syringe
    #1734851 - 07/21/03 02:21 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

a friend got one but doesn't know what the difference is compared to clear.

I see the term "dark" used but can't find the definition in the FAQ.

it's just when there are so many spores in the water, it appears to be dark. And of course, the more spores, the better!

Give it a couple of more days just to be sure.

I ordered 4 syringes from mikron magic and only 1 of them worked. They were clear as shit and looked like straight water too, I waited 14 days and no sign of mycelium forming. I told them about this and they sent me new ones that still didn't work so it is possible that they aren't good. Tell the people you got them from that they didn't work and they should send more. Ralphsters spores are always legit and nice and dark, as well as TLG but now i think they only sell prints.

If Time is considered linear and represented by a straight line of 180deg. Then it is easy to conjecture that infinity/eternity can be identified by a circle . A circle has no beginning and no ending.

My kittens TLG syringes were clear as water, but they colonized great. I really don't think you can go with the 'dark' standard with syringes.

First mantra of the hobby - "Patience." Germination can occur as early as 2 -3 days, but it may take up to a week or more for he first signs of germination to show. It depends on a multitude of factors - some of which are: temperature, substrate, spore concentration, age of the spores, etc. There are so many different relevant factors it is very hard to determine within the 1st2 weeks why you have not shown germination. Give it at least a week before you worry, and at least 2 weeks before you panic. All you need are 2 spores to germinate and take over the entire jar - and luck is on your side when proper procedures are followed. Please be patient and do not panic after only 2 days, no matter how fast you've read other people's colonization was. Their setup, factors, everything varies just slightly from yours. Now, after a period of time with no germination, analyze all of the possibilities (such as temperature, water content, sterilization procedures, etc.) that would hinder growth. This is your best bet on learning the life cycle, and also learning the peculiarities of your personal setup (as far as variations go).

One factor that is very important in seeing mycelium at a certain date is where you injected the spores. You should see something within 7 days if you pressed the needle against the glass and squirted it in near the top allowing the spore solution to trickle down the side of the glass sporulating as much substrate as possible.

I just visited the sight i orderd them from and the first message posted says, B+ & Lipa Yai or tap water??

http://64.4.22.250/cgi-bin/linkrd?_lang=EN&lah=dde562e430f348ae527b18bffc73288d&lat=1058932728&hm___action=http%3a%2f%2fwww%2esporelab%2ecom%2fforums

By shit unfortunate luck these are the two I inoculated my jars with. Im extremly pissed of and asked them to send more. However I still have an unused syringe of a diffrent strain and wanted to know if I can reinoculate the same jars that i put B+ and Lipa in. Imguessing there still sterill but im also retard and this is my first time. Can I boil them again or should i just remake more subsrate?

You're probably better off starting new jars for the other syringe. You could theoretically use the same jars that nothing grew in, but they could be contaminated, or even if nothing else is wrong you will mess up the correct water ratio a bit by injecting more spore solution.
