Why buy syringes?
    #459793 - 11/15/01 10:32 PM (15 years, 26 days ago)

Why does anyone bother buying syringes? I swear they're the biggest rip off! One print makes 4-5 dark watered syringes. And they're easy as fuck to make. Does anyone out there agree with me?

I sort of agree, but guys and girls who are new are a little uncomfortable jumping into making syringes

and they are cheaper and 1 syringes can give you countless #'s of mushrooms and then you have prints to make your own.

I like buying syringes now and then exspecially when there is a new strain or a strain I have not tried before.

I think it goes to experience and saving a few bucks.

I lost three batches in a row, to contams. I got pissed, so I ordered syringes. This way I can atleast corner where I'm fucking up. I think I may have gotten a contamed print through a trade, and thats what started my mess.

making 4-5 isn't very economical, I've made 25 with my print and they all work dandy, then gave most of them away to friends, heh, I don't have THAT many jars, just a few

yeah i agree. i never ever bought a syringe and have made 1 bad one so far (which i rushed thru my setup and process in about 15 min total). syringes are very easy when done logically and kept clean. i have not seen a print that would make over 5 or 6 good syringes, and on my last lipa yai prints from ralphster it took 2 whole prints in a syringe and that worked but the water was nowhere near darker than it was without the whole 50 spores or so that i got. they were very weak prints.

Holy shit people; COMMON SENSE! we were all born with it where did it go?

a friend of mine tried growing a couple years ago with this kit he bought. it came with a spore print and he had contams every time he tried to get them to grow. when i decided to try my hand at fungus, i thought i might have better luck with the syringes.

when you come into the whole thing with no experience and no one to teach you, it helps to have a shortcut.

anyway, i'm used to paying $25-30 for 3.5g of dried zoomers, so $13 for a syringe that will innoculate a dozen jars seems like a pretty damn good deal to me!

take care!

having room to phuck up when working from prints:

well, if you're making syringes, then like a few ppl have already mentioned they've had problems with making contaminated syringes..

if you aren't using syringes and are just using the spores, there are tons of ways to fuck it up heh

personally, since it was my first time i'd rather just buy the damn syringe no point in relying on myself when i have no first hand experience.. but i doubt i'll buy any more unless it were to get a new strain.. heh or if i manage to fuck the rest of my jars up :smile:

Some places sell syringes cheaper than prints or have deals for the syringes which will save you money... a print will give you more syringes if you make them yourself, but all you have to grow is one mushroom to make your own print... that one syringe will get you many prints and you saved yourself a few bucks. Just thaught I'd share my two cents

yeah, NOW I can use syringes. But my very first time. I mean, the VERY FIRST time? I wouldn't have known what to to with a print.

So in answer to the "Why buy syringes" post. . .I'd say, "Because some people don't know what to do with a print."

I LOOOOOOVE this new obsession with "dark" syringes.... Like darker is better or something.....It takes about a square inch(at the most) to make a syringe. Yea, it does speed it up a bit.... but, PLEASE PEOPLE!

yeah - what is that?? Do they need to see spore clumps in their syringes to believe that somethings going to grow in their jars... Waste of prints if you ask me...

this is kind of off the original topic, but i totally agree with you.
In fact I have a gut feeling that a spore syringe with less spores is actually better!
My line of thinking comes from the fact that with less competing strains there is better opportunity for stronger ones to do their thing... If this makes any sense(im having a hard time with words right now)
