Dumb Question
    #2902919 - 07/18/04 05:13 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Hey guys, I have never attempted cultivation before, and I am extremely interested in giving it a try; however, my only concern is seemingly a stupid one. I'm concerned that in the event that I do order some spores (of the active nature), that I would be putting myself at risk of some sort of surveillance by a government agency of some sort. Haha, I know that sounds dumb, but, through ordering some "golden teacher" spores, and having them sent to my home, could I intern be putting myself at risk of being questioned by a police type authority or something? Or, rather, while they are being mailed, when they pass through the postal service, would someone see that they were sending mushroom spores to my house and put my address on some sort of list or something? Once again, I realize this concern is really stupid, but I have to wonder, ya know? Anyway, please don't make fun of me too much...it's just a simple concern. Thanks guys.

it's not illegal to have spores, therfore there would be no reason for them to watch you

Yea, I didn't figure so, but I still thought I'd ask.

the only way to get in trouble really would be to jump right out and say you are/going to grow some magic shrooms..... cough cough... :rolleyes:

Well, to those of you whom have ordered spores before, did you have them sent to your house? And if so, what kind of box did they arrive in...was there any indication that there were mushroom spores in the box?

Usually the website says it won't label the box as such

I recently ordered spore syringe off net. Had no luck with it since temps in mail probably hit above 109 during shipping. Keep that in mind if you've been having extreme weather.

And there is where God lives, where the dead live, the spirits and the saints, a world where everything has already happened and everything is known. That world talks. It has a language of its own. I report what it says. The sacred mushroom takes me by the hand and brings me to the world where everything is known. It is they, the sacred mushrooms, that speak in a way I can understand. I ask them and they answer me. When I return from the trip that I have taken with them, I tell what they have told me and what they have shown me."

Your saying extreme shipping temperatures have ruined your spores? Can anyone confirm this?

Hmm, I ordered back in early july from a reputable dealer and nothing will grow. No mold, no myc, nothing. Maybe my spores died in transit. They were some pretty sad syringes to begin with, Im never ordering from that guy again, I dont care how fast he is.

Which dealer? Did you tell them that something was up with your spores (without, of course, saying that you were trying to cultivate 'em)? Usually they'll send a replacement.

In my experience i just had them shipped to my p.o. box with another name on the package. if you send them a money order you can sign anybodys name on it as long as it's signed. i've never had problems with "the works" spores. they have always come in good shape and have always produced just what they were supposed to. Plus their syringes are good for many re-uses.
