UGH! All I can say is: don't buy spores on ebay!
    #2653530 - 05/08/04 03:42 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

AFOAF is so pissed off- she bought some spores on ebay and when they arrived, only 2 of the 10cc's were still in the syringe!  She decided to support one of the Shroomery's sponsors instead. What was she thinking? Duh.  At least she learned her lesson though! Do you think she should at least use the 2cc's left in the syringe (for microscopy purposes of course)- are they still viable, or could they have been contaminated since there is obviously a leak?  Thanks! :sun:

Thanks- I tried to vote for him, but all it shows is the poll results?? Maybe i already voted for him last night but was i was so tired i can't remember....would that be why only the results are showing?  Anyway, she doesn't have a microwave, so I guess she will try to PC the karo- have you tried that?  I am reading about how to do it so if you are sick of people asking stupid questions don't bother answering- it is just nice to have some feedback on what people have actually tried. Thanks guys.
:heart:

I bought my first syringe off ebay, dont do it. I swear the damn guy just put water in it and no spores. Came with a card that said his supplier did something to make the spores not visible lol.

Spores arent visable!the black clumps you see sometimes are thousands and thousands of spores clumped together.Spores are microscopic.And alot of vendors do mix there syringes in a way that makes them clear at the end.It simply means they are distributed fully throughout the syringe.Although I cant speak for the ones you had,as I dont know anything about them.I can say I have had alot of clear syringes that looked like nothing more than"plain water" and they worked just as good as dark ones.
Its not a waste to do karo at all.its a good way to see if they are viable without wasting substrate and jars,and its a good way to get some more syringes filled.

Why in the world someone in their right mind would buy some spores off ebay is beyond me.

Substrate + jars = $20
Magic Mushroom spores = $12

Boil up a few hundred mL of water. Add a teaspoon of karo syrup ( after boiling ) to each 100ml o fwater. Allow to cool, suck that up in the syringe with 2 cc's and incubate. That 2cc syringe of spores will turn into a 12 cc sygine of liquid mycelia

Thanks guys- how long does the karo mixture need to incubate before innoculation?

Give it 7-10 days or so for a nice amount of mycelluim to form,then shake it well to break it up and shoot up those jars.Store the leftover in the fridge for a month or more.Ive used 2 1/2 month old karo water before with no problems.

Spores101 sells on ebay. That's where I got mine. Less than $5.00 a syringe. (Spores101 is a Shroomery sponser) So who's the dipshit.
