Free Spore Ring Europe, Any Good???
    #4212408 - 05/24/05 12:35 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Hi, am im looking for somewhere to get my spores from. I have stumbled across the Free Spore Ring Europe site, that says i just send an envelope with 1 ?uro, and what strain i want, and theyll send a print back to me. Has anyone used this ring before, and how reliable are they. Also, i would prefer to buy pre-made spore-syringes, although i live in Australia, any chance that theres a company out there that will post syringes to me, or is it best to just get prints (regarding secracy aswell, i dont want to get in trouble with customs). As for the syringes, will these just be at any Pharmacy, and what guage needle do i need to get for making spore syringes.

Thanks

They are very reliable. The prints are made by home growers so they are more likely to be contaminated than most vendors prints. Instead of asking for particular strains I would suggest asking for the cleanest print they have. I think some are donated by vendors when they are not big/nice enough to sell as commercial prints.

sorry but that couldnt be true ^, if you think about bulk spore printing that the sponcers make to the personal ones the donators make i would say they are the same , i made a experiment , that i made a sporepriont and syringe in the kitchen with dirty plates surrounding the work area , now i found out that 2/5 got contamed the rest didnt ,because the myc grows on the same route as the contaminated water went thus , overgrowing any possible contam . and yes spore rings are very clean anyway they make syringes with a HEPA flow hood.

thats just my 2 cents ,plus i donate!
visit or try F-S-R-C might be closer to you.

peace and stay safe liveby,

oh yeah not to flame or anything , theres no such thing as "the cleanest print" unless they sat down and looked thru a microscope .

i got prints from FSRE 2 times and they were both good. i also sent back 3 prints of mine to them to keep the "ring" going. i don't use a flow hood nor a glove box, so if they send you my prints they are not in the commercial standard, but i guess they will be good too. as far as i know, a contamined print or syringe is a much more rare thing than a contamined jar or petri.

I am sure the sponsers or their sporeprint suppliers have got great clean room setups for doing bulk prints. They cannot risk their reputations by selling contaminated prints. I think it was a vendor called sporchicks who closed soon after a "pink contam" outbreak, if word gets out that a vendor sold a contamed print, why would you buy from them when there are many reputable ones. They can afford the setup.

A home grower cannot justify the price of a decent cleanroom setup. A person who eats a few slices of bread a year does not neeed to buy a bakery. Look at the guys with massive PC's, humidifiers, glovebox's, flowhoods, magnetic stirrers etc. If they are going to that expense they are obviously serious about mycology and are probably more careful about sterility when printing, than the guy growing a few steamed PF jars for the first time.

When I say the "cleanest" print I mean the one that the guys at the FSRE think is the least likely to have contams, simple as that, if a print is donated from a vendor I think it is less likely to have contams than somebody doing their first grow working in open air in a dirty environment.
My first FSR print was from print was from Ralphster years ago, it was donated from sporeworks.
I asked for "clean" prints from FSRE and got some made by Anno, I expect Anno has a decent setup (being an ex-vendor) and has being growing for many years and obviously knows how to make a good print.

It just may be disheartening if a newbie had all his jars contaminate on its first go.

I do not have a very clean environment and have being thinking of ways to supply the FSRE with clean prints. I am thinking of growing and printing invitro and making vials of sterile spore water which could be posted. I could easily make a few perfectly sterile prints that could then fill 50+ vials.
