sporeworks equador: should i raise hell?
    #2119541 - 11/18/03 01:20 PM (17 years, 10 months ago)

i just recieved my equador syringe and it is completely clear. Im sure theres some spores in there, but i was under the impression that they were to put in enough to notice deposits or coloration of some kind. im gonna shoot my bags up, but this syringe shit seems like bad business. what does the all knowing community think?

Clear is fine. Inoculate with the syringe first. If nothing happens, complain to Sporeworks. If they do nothing, come back here and raise some hell.

Sporeworks is a reputable vendor and they sell good stuff.

I've seen my best results from clear looking syringes.

There are many reasons for people to use as few spores as possible.... but the main one is this: it spreads the print further.

So in a nutshell, wait and see what happens, or you'll feel bad for raising hell.

yeah, i figured it was still completely viable. and i chose sporeworks bc i knew they were reliable, not only that but they supply sporebank so why not go to the source? ill keep everyone updated on the project. I feel compelled to thank the community, for simply existing, in every one of my posts. You know what im going to be thankful for this thanksgiving!

Have ordered 2 syringes from sporeworks. B+ and PR's. Both are very clear. They do contain spores. Not the HIGHEST concentration. They work just gotta use a lil more solution in each jar. B+'s took forever to colonize though. ADVICE= Ralphster :thumbup: GL

Please keep us posted. Good thing you didn't pay Sporebank prices.

As for Deebo, I'm getting the feeling b+ are just slow... no matter where you get 'em.

there is no need to worry about a clear syringe, unless it has no spores in it.

dark syringes can be counter productive. the more spores you have germinating in your substrate, the more substrains you will have growing. these substrains will spend energy competing with eachother, which is not in your best interest.

my syringes from sporeworks were also pretty clear and they were also ecuador(good choice btw) i inoculated my bags and they colonized fine , slow but fine, no need to worry, chill and be patient, if you dont see any mycelium growth within 5 weeks, then be pissed, mycobags will test your patience!!! Good Luck!!! Sporeworks is good stuff!

And I can guarantee you no one from Sporeworks is going to say shit in this post.  Why?  Because they're not Ralphster.  :smile:

Ralph is a quality vendor. So is Sporeworks. So is The Hawks Eye.

If you get into mycology, I recomend trying multiple vendors. They each have their own good and bad qualities... but they all have viable spores.

Its fine that it is clear, hold it up to the light you should be able to see tiny clumps of spores floating around. The Equador syringe i ordered from sporeworks was just fine. Peace.

Clear syringes are fine.

Rememeber, spores are microscopic.  So they are very, very, very, VERY hard to see with the human eye :smile: Most spores that you see are really clumps of thousands of spores stuck together.

Clear syringes are generally no better than "dark" ones.

One spore prints contains  MILLIONS of spores. 

Go inoculate your substrate.  If you see little white fuzzy stuff growing, you're A-otay!

I got two Amazonian syringes from Sporeworks (they were generally clear but you could see tiny clumps of spores) and injected my one-pint jars. They were done colonizing in just over two weeks.

I've been a customer of sporeworks for years. Was even around when ralphster started the free spore ring and when he turned vendor. Both are reputable spore vendors. While I have never purchased spores from ralphster, I personally have always preferred sporeworks since they ship fast, have quality products and have a wider selection of medicinal & gourmet species.

could be the syringe, or could be something you did, i got both my first syringes from sporebank(yes i know), and they worked fine, i have made prints of them and now will never need to order any again, just trade from here on out. but if you know for sure you did everything right, just email em, theyll prolly send another/

Rather than raise hell, which will get you nowhere... contact Sporeworks and explain to them how you did some mycroscopy with your samples and were unable to find any viable spores. Also, tell them you are a member of The Shroomery. Give them a couple of days to reply. I'm sure they will replace your syringe... if you ask politely.

If you are still unsatisfied, take your business elsewhere next time you order spores.

The problem with raising hell is this: You sound like you are pretty new to this hobby. If you haven't ever grown anything successfully, who's to say you didn't screw something up?

While you wait for your replacement syringe, make sure your incubator is below 86 degrees. Make sure your water content in your jars is good... and save a couple cc's of spores... just in case you need to try a third time.

Look at the bright side... the jars didn't contaminate.

The jars could have contamed, and he just dont know yet. I remember back in my myco-study days, I had a set of jars that sat around forever with no noticible change. I finally decided to open them, what did i get in return you ask? A nose full of some wonderful bacterial contams! It was my fault though. My process was bad.

because the syringe is clear doesn't mean there are no spores in there, spores are micro-scopic ----- BUT if i'm paying for a syringe i want to see some fucking spores ! i have heard very good things about sporeworks , but personally ralphster is tried and true, he has the shit! but that's just me.

did you follow workman's advice?
sporeworks is a good company. i'm 99% sure they sent you a viable syringe, but they will probably replace it anyway for you if you email customer service. if they won't, pm me and i'll buy one from them and send it to you.
