Syringe problem
    #4694228 - 09/22/05 10:10 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I received my Amazonian Cubensis through the post a couple of days ago. The thing is I can't see any spores in the water at all. From what I've read I should be able to see them if I look closely and the water should have a purple tint.

there are plenty of spores in there
don't worry about it
it only takes a couple spores to colonize a jar

not true...

you don't have to be able to see any spores...for the syringe to be viable.

if you do see spores in a syringe...they are clumping together and you have a shit load of spores in the syringe.

spores are microscopic...not visible to the nakkid eye.

your fine...use that syringe!~

If it is a poorly made syringe, you will be able to see the spores.

Syringes that are "purple", and have a ton of spores floating in them, are mainly for novelty. They will actually hurt your grow, rather than help it.

Although dark syringes may colonize your substrate faster, the end result will not be very good.

Your syringe is fine, use it.

There also may be a small clump in there as well that you can barely see. Make sure you shake well before you inoculate.
