Question about syringes...
    #4435759 - 07/21/05 11:40 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Bought 3 syringes [Hawaiian, GT & JA strains] from Spores101.

Got them in the mail and popped open the box [keep in mind this is my first time ordering this kind of thing] and the syringes seemed...empty. I was under the impression that I'd be able to visibly SEE the spores floating around in the syringes. All 3 had an air bubble and I even shook them up --- no dice. At the tip [under the blue cap, it looks like the spores are all jumbled up in there]. If I can't see any spores in the syringes or if they're all stuck in that blue cap, does that mean these syringes are no good?

Thanks for any help. Not trying to bash Spores101, I'm just not sure.

Thanks!

Spores are microscopic.

Ah, ok. That's a relief. I was under the impression [from a few other posts], that they could be seen w/the naked eye. Good to know, and thanks!

Just study the spores and then report back...they are fine.

hold the syringe up to a light and you can see millions of em swirling around.

what you are seeing is clumps of spores...or flakes of spores that haven't been mixed up well.

Will do. Again, not trying to badmouth you guys or put you down. Speedy delivery, great packing. We'll see what kind of things pop up under the microscope.

Millions of things all around us are microscopic.  If you looked at life through a microscope you would probably want to live in a plastic bubble.  :monkeydance:

Quoting from our shipping insert at sporesource.com

"Please note Spores are very small and require at least a 400 power microscope to see. The lack of color in the syringe does not indicate lack of spores, but does indicate spores have settled or clumped in shipping and syringe should be shaken before dispensing specimen"

Mushroom spores are about the size of human sperm, and you can't see them with your naked eyes either.
