Cracked box
    #3642460 - 01/18/05 09:50 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Hey everyone, I purchased a grow kit through ebay, and the guy seems really reliable. However, I just recieved the kit and everything is in place except the box seems to have been damaged during shipping. There is a large crack on one corner, to the extent that plastic fell out of the wrapper when I was opening it. It basically is a hole.

So I assume it wouldn't be smart to use this box for growing... shit would just fall right through. Is it worth it to take the guy up on his "any defects and I'll give your money back" or should I just run out and buy another large tupperware container? They're inexpensive, and I've been looking forward to starting to grow for weeks... I don't know if I can wait another.

Anyway, I know it's a trivial question, but I'd appreciate some words of knowledge. Thanks in advance!

yeah man, just get one from the store, its not magical mushroom growing tupperware or anything... when you say the box is cracked you mean the fruiting chamber plastic is broken?

I'd send him an email about it, and ask if he'd refund a few bucks to you instead of having you ship back the one box, and have him ship you a new one... it'll be cheaper for you both in the long run.

Any and all references to growing are completely facticious, all pictures shown unless specifically stated are stock photographs found via google image search.

Thanks everyone, I went out and found a nearly identical container at a very very cheap price, so I'm happy again. Now all I have to do is wait for my spores to arrive in the mail... I thought they'd come today but I guess the weekend and Martin Luther King day might have screwed up the mail a bit... I'll start flipping if it doesn't come tomorrow.
