How long do the spores need to germinate?
    #3529408 - 12/21/04 11:31 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Just beforei inoculated the culture jars i rember lookin into the syringe and i could barely see a few particles floating around in teh syringe. Its been 4 days since i inoculated them and they have no signs of mycella. Not one little white spot. And i put a little over 1 1/2 cc's in each half pint jar in 4 areas, Should i wait longer or did lil shop of spores screw me? I thought when you look into teh syringe you should easily see tons of lil specs? Do i need to call tehse guys or what?

I got my spores from somewhere else, but my syringes were also mostly clear. Very hard to detect the tiny particles floating around inside. It took about 7 or 8 days before I started seeing the white fluffy happiness.

I can take 8-10 days or more before you see any mycelial growth. Usually it comes on within 2-4 days but it can take much longer. As for the syringe; spores are microscopic and those little specs you see when you look into one are actually clumps of spores. I wouldn't be too worried until day 12 or 14. Sometimes those little guys can be stubborn. GL and have fun. :smile:

Appears you are SCREWING THEM, not THEY YOU.

First MISTAKE newb's make is thinking spores germinate overnight.

Second is fondly jars all day, every day eyeballing them.

Did you shake and tap the needle before you used it? That usually pulls the spores from the surfaces. (Plunger and walls)

Otherwise, give it time...

If you still have the syringe, fill it back up with 2CC of distilled water. Then flick the top and bottom of the needle with your finger. Like you are flicking an expired cigarette butt. You may get a second chance, or an extra jar just from that!

Why are you falsely badmouthing a legitimate vendor?

Step 1: Change the topic name
Step 2: Read
Step 3: Learn patience
Step 4: I don't have a step 4 :frown:

A friend of mine's first signs took a week. Wait 8 days, then buy a gun.

First signs can take up to three weeks..especially if you didnt shake the syringe.

>Alot of spores will stick to that rubber stopper thing in the syringe ..

Ya if you didnt shake or you have very heavy/dark syringes to begin with, 70-90% of them may have clumped at the plunger. Look carefully to see if its very dark around there, and compare to one that u know isnt clumped if u have one. If it is, take some sterile water, unscrew your needle from the syringe, and swirl both tips in the water, then sterilize the needle or use a dif one to suck up the solution u just got. ~D

I smell a short term banning.

People are mad at your topic title. If you think you are ripped off you contact the VENDOR privaetly.  If you have cultivation questions that is what you ask here.

Topic.
How long can it take to germinate spores.

I was under the impression that spores germinate in 4 days, mine haven't. Is this a problem?

Answer.

No, spores can take up to a month to germinate depending on many variables. It is common for them to show signs of life within 1 week at temps in the 80F range. I would not worry until the third week, I wouldn't complain until the fourth week.

Topic titles like I got screwed by a vendor belong in Vendor forum, and YOU BETTER HAVE BEEN SCREWED. No germination after a month. No replacement by vendor of Malformed and collapsed spores you viewed under your scope :tongue:.

Getting upset and cursing at established members of a community you are trying to get information from is counterproductive. Use common sense and shed some of that ego, it's just a little pin prick and there will be no more AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

Absolutly 110% correct.

You dont want people to critisize you then dont automatically post something that could take away business from a perfectly good shroomery sponsor. Without that and the other sponsors the shroomery wouldnt be what it is today and you wouldnt have the help that you have at your fingertips. If you arent a jerk
