You know you can try again right?

Get a new syringe and make your own jars for like 15 bucks.

Just be more sterile this time. A lot of people fail their first time. Its no reason to give up.

Holy shit. To grow shrooms, it cost me well under 25 dollars.

Me too. Go with a shroomery vendor for your spores or even FSRC or FSRU - $80 for a syringe is a rip, sorry. - What did the jars look like? Maby its just Myc. growing. When i first saw it it looked like cobweb mold to me so it can easily be mistaken to the untrained eye.

Yeah bro don't worry about it. The eq is like investments - it will last for many grows. The Syringe is an expense, sure. Try looking at it this way:
===================
Grow Style 1:
Tubs, heaters, PC, foil, etc... = investments, last for many grows - rarely replaced. $150

Syringe, pre-prepared jars, pre-prepared substrates... = One-use expenses. $80.

Result? First grow (success or not) is costing you $230, future grows costing $80/piece
============================
Grow Style 2:
Tubs, heaters, PC, foil, jars, multi-pound bags of substrate... = investments, last for many grows - rarely replaced. $150

Syringe: 5 pack *usually 4 plus 1 for free* = $40
Result? First grow costs you $190. Next 4 grows cost you $15/piece.
============================

It's economics. Time = Money. If you have the money, you can pay other people for the time (making jars for you and shipping them).

However, if you have the time and NOT the money (as it sounds) you are basically paying yourself to work. Economics.

Dude don't give up. You have the initial equipment now. Just buy some jars (edit: yah, you already have 12!), some birdseed, a PC and more syringes. You can make WBS cakes. Granted they yield nothing like PF or RYE, but you will find success - and move on to more things. WBS takes far less prep that BRF in my opinion, and you only need one material - a 25Lb bag 'o seed from wally world for $10.

Hope it helps

Um. Okay. Thanks. Now go back and read my post again so you understand it as well. Sounds like it would benefit you too.

Nope didn't benefit me... at all...

And I was talking to everyone cuz they all thought that he spent $80 on a syringe.

12 pre-sterilized PF cakes is 50 bux and a syringe is 20 bux...

But that's $70 so maybe he didn't use Mike O'Logical...




BTW: what did you think was gonna benefit me from the post you said to re-read?

my first grow was bout 60-65 bucks and i had to throw them out, still had all the equipment from before and gave it a go the following year when i had time and it costed me 18 bucks. 15 for syringe and 3 bucks shipping. succeeded that time :wink:

we learn from our mistakes...hopefully :p  good luck next try.

definitely make your own jars... its so cheap. you already have the jars now! just buy a 2 pound bag of brown rice flour for 4 bucks and a big ass bag of vermiculite for 2-3 bucks(for me, thats enough for over 2 dozen half pint jars.  invest in a pressure cooker, that might cost you a lil money, but the first grow alone can pay off that and the rest of your investments.  and after you grow, you can take your own spore prints and no need to even buy spores anymore!

you should really get some lysol or clorox disinfectant spray, spray it in the air around where you are working to help kill off any contams, this has never failed me.

I dont even do that. Me and my girlfirend do what is basically a ritual everytime i cook up some jars. Clean everything (even the walls) in my kitchen. Wash all the dishes and wipe down counters cabnets, mop the floor and wait for everything to dry and before i prepare anything i wear rubber gloves (disposable ones from home depot). Im on grow # 2 now and ive only lost 2 jars (1 on each grow which were even salvageable) - And about the Pressure Cooker i dont even use that, i just boil my jars, put a rag on the bottom of pot, fill water half way up jars, and boil on low for 1 hour.

That's awful nice of ya Mike. Considering it seems like a bad syringe was more likely the culprit.
