What do you want from your Vendors?
    #4275303 - 06/09/05 11:51 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

What do you want from your Vendors? General question, but I will give some examples.

-I want a return address which is not on "published" the internet, anywhere, if it does appear through a forum, change it. Anybody can search google and various companies that I used for many "suspect" items give these supposedly safe names, but they can easily be found out by a nosey landlord, work colleague etc.

-I want a spore print in a sealed petri or plastic container with an self healing injection site. Agar has shown how to make ones without the self healing site, but it is easily done.

-Larger syringes, I got some empty 50cc from mushmush, they said full ones do not travel well but you could get a specific container. I wouldnt mind a big 200ml syringe too.

-freebies- just cheap stuff to get people interested, like enough agar mixture for a few dishes, spare needles of different gauges, single autoclave bags.

-Sections of prints or tiny prints, of course at a cheaper price.

-live wedges or mini bottles mycelium of isolated strains in mini vials in distilled water, from vendors who can legally sell these. For instance azure prints are expensive and not usually as free from contaminants as a cubensis print. A 5ml vial of sterile azure myc is very cheap to make. Same goes for mexicana, I would like to see more sclerotia experiments but the spores are pretty expensive.

-Agents in different countries. Ralphster has canadian orders shipped from canada. I am in europe and all US stuff goes through customs and needs a customs slip with some dubious description on it. European vendors are mostly in holland, any package arriving from holland to my workplace would be commented on, always jokingly, but holland is renowned for porn and drugs. I think some of the sponsers here are based in austria.

Larger syringes would be awesome. I'd be happy with just even like 50 ccs!

They hook us up with syringes and freebie deals, :thumbup:

Bigger syringes would own though. But I wouldn't want one personally. a 200ml contam.-ed syringe isn't what I'd call fun.

I can see offering a 20cc syringe, anything larger could mean some people using a portion, putting it away dirty, and blaming the vendor for contamination. I think this is why the market sees mostly 10cc, or the 12cc that we sell. We ship our prints in a zip locked 2"x2" bag and ship those inside a coin envelope inside the shipping envelope or package. Because a single print can produce about 15 syringes, many people want to break the print, and use a small portion of the print, so putting the print in a container ready to use might not be as popular. most folks who buy prints already have facilities to process their prints without contamination. The Idea of selling a part of a print does seem interesting, I have been shipping free 1/2 prints of Texas spores to my customers who buy prints, because the variety is very much under appreciated, and I want to introduce it to my customers. Most of my business is syringes, not prints, and I had also thought of selling dark syringes that contained a half or a whole print, if there was a market for them. This is a good thread to get your ideas out, and we vendors can't read minds, so I for one appreciate the feedback.
The other items I can't address because they are Europe specific, and we can't deal in mycelia.

To be honest, I never REALLY cared for the color.

Ralph sent me a syringe that had two booger sized (:smirk) pieces of a print. Shake it up, and damn, it's not dark, but there's enough spores everywhere to make you a happy customer by far.

Dark syringes would really just be for looks IMO.

You guys dish out greaet syringes.

And yea, bigger than 20ml is really un-necessary due to contam. factors...

Freebies are definitely what gets my attention. I love getting free spores for a strain that I never thought of before!

I'd like to see Vendors sell prints on glass microscope slides.

Plus...it might be a good idea in the future for American Vendors...with the way things are going.
Most vendors have this statement these days on their sites anyway...ALL PRODUCTS ARE SOLD FOR MICROSCOPIC VIEWING ONLY.
So why not have them on glass slides...for their own protection.
:smirk:

I made up 6 different strains last night.

2 were on card stock from trades...I f#cking hate card stock...the spores almost bond to the paper to the point of it being useless!~

3 were on alum foil...which is ok...and they weren't too hard to get off.

1 was on a glass microscope slide that I made a couple years ago.
The spores just slide off and into the jar with ease.

Plus I know a few people that like to collect strains on glass microscope slides...besides myself.

just my 2 cents worth!~

The 50cc may contam, but if you are careful with them you can keep it clean, it could be stated when buying it to be careful. I still see newbies buying up 5 syringes and using them on jars with .5-1cc in each port.
What I really like about the 50cc is the use of it afterwards. Sucking up 50cc of LC and giving each bag/jar a healthy dose of LC. And for introducing sterile water to dried out bags etc.

A few vendors do print collections of many different strains but they tend to be expensive, maybe a collection of 10 strains with only a 1/10 print of each for $50.

"many people want to break the print, and use a small portion of the print, so putting the print in a container ready to use might not be as popular"
If the print was in a petri with a self healing hole I could get a syringe which is only 1cc of water. When I inject this I can suck up almost every trace of water back out since I have 9-11cc of space in the syringe, this leaves the print almost dry, I only suck a tiny amount of spores up in each syringe. I do this with prints in little bags and it works well. A blob of silicon on the bag also works but is fiddly

... but have pictures of growing mushrooms. ???

spore vendors compared to other business, i wish would become more professional. i might have had a couple of fulfilled order out of 8. like get shipped the wrong product, getting over charged, not responding to my emails. ive receive syringes that reeked like they were stored in a room full of smoke but brag about using sterile procedures on their website. i know theyre small operations but there is definely room for improvement.

and their websites ... i dont like all those graphics that take a long time to load. i dont care for blinking or spinning logos. that shit is not cool or trippy. KEEP IT SIMPLE and use a clean design.
