Only thing i can think of is bad spores. try making a liquid culture with your next syringe.

As long as they haven't dried out they should be fine. But make sure there is no growth before re-using. Putting two different strtains in a jar will make them compete.

Did you pack your jars or just let the substrate fall into the jar? It makes a big difference. Some of the jars that I packed, I didnt know any better, took a couple weeks to start colonizing. And total colonization took over a month.

substrate is in there very fluffy

it may be that they were stored in small cabinet w/ foil lids
which = bad gas exchange

i will wait 1 more week and then email Spore Works

well if the syringe was bad, how do I ask spore works for a new one

since we are not supposed to be growing them in the first place...

EDIT: realized i used perlite/brf substrate vs verm/brf substrate, would that make a difference?

So did you give up?
I have a similar problem(also 11August, also GT), only 2/6 jars show growth.
Are you going to contact your supplier for a new syringe?

Good luck anyway.

let them know that the spores did not appear to be viable

given that the mistake was yours I hope you decide to simply buy a new one
