Is there any problem with a syringe that has no specks in it?
    #4060130 - 04/15/05 07:58 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I just ordered and received 2 syringes from Sporesdirect and noticed that one of my syringes has absolutely no specks in it. I only have experience with one other vendor and that's Lil Shop of Spores. All of his syringes have multiple black specks, whereas one of these have none and the other has a very small amount.

I searched through the forum and could not find a straight answer on the viability of completely clear syringes.

Will a syringe with little to no visible specks still be a viable syringe. I'm still new with vendors and I'm only on my 3rd set of syringes with a brand new vendor (new for me). Anyone else have the same issue and had no problems with their syringes?

Thanks for all of the help people. I really do appreciate it.

No

Spores are microscopic...too small to be seen by the unaided eye but large enough to be studied under a microscope.

your fine!~

Thanks Roadkill. I guess the specks are multiple spores stuck together from the print that the naked eye can see? I'm glad to hear there is no cause for alarm. Like I said, this is my first syringe out of 5 that have never had specks.

if you happen to have a 400x + microscope you can always check them out before you use them. just squirt a single drop on a slide and check it out. Once i used a print and a small drop of karo water to watch them germinate over a few days. interesting stuff indeed.

But to answer your question, the shroomery sponsers are all good guys/gals. you should ahve no worries when dealing with them. :thumbup:

All my B+ syringes had no visible specks either, let's talk about the amazonians though! specks everywhere. Your good!

Thanks for the tip on the microscope. Unfortunately I don't have one. I wonder if a good magnifying glass would work? I doubt it though.

Thanks for all the help guys.

I think the spore place you bought your's from offers refunds/replacements if it's not a viable syringe. Might want to email them if anything happens though.

despite the uneasy feeling of shooting clear liquid into your jars, ive found that clear syringes work better... just from anecdotal experience, but i always seem to get more agressive growth with more dilute spore solutions.  could be that there's fewer 'substrains' mating up and vying for resoures and their own little footholds in the substrate... could be coincidence... could be totally in my head... but either way that's the way it seems to go :smile:  i know that should i ever receive a dark syringe at any time in the future, ill be diluting it into several syringes.  so you could argue that you get more value/mileage that way.... but whatever.  doesn't take a lot of spores to be set for life :smile:
