Bad Spores?
    #4725055 - 09/28/05 01:41 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I have made several post about when you know you don't good quality spores.  Well, here i am following up on those posts.  I shoot up 6 PF jars sept 19 and I checked them 2 min ago and still no growth.  From a prior attempt at growing all the jars usually took 3 days to show sign of growth.  Are these spores I got no good.  I may the bad decision of ordering from the first place I found on-line (not a sponsor here) and it took three weeks to get them and I see lots of spores inside the syringe but NO growth.  Has anyone had jars take longer than 8 days?  Remember none of the jars have shown signs of growth.  I took backupwards advice by trying the free spore ring but I don't know how long it takes to receive your first print.  So until I do this last syringe is all I have to work with until I receive a quality print.  Should I bother making more substrate jars and shooting them up or should I wait to see if there is going to be any growth in my previous jars first.  Thanks!!! :rolleyes:  :confused:

it can take up to two weeks for germination to happen, you're nearing that point, but all hope is not lost. If you're getting a free print id say either knock up some more jars or at least try and make a LC out of what you have left.

I wouldn't bother wasting more time, energy and supplies if you really believe the spores are the problem. If you are unsure of your process at all and you believe something else you did may have attributed to the lack of colonization, I'd say try again.

It really hasn't even been that long. Its only been 9 days. Spores typically take 7-10 days to germinate so I would still be patient with the jars. Who knows, you could wait a few days and the growth may come.

It can very well be bad spores. I had this same problem.

My situation: Had 12 jars. Inoculated six of them with B+ 5 weeks ago. They are 90% colonized and took 2 weeks to START colonizing.

Then 2.1 weeks ago, I inoculated mexican albino into the other 6. Right now, THEY are in the fruiting chamber ready to pin. BIG SPEED DIFFERENCE THERE.

Same jars, same inoculation methods, same EVERYTHING except the spores.

So yes, you could have gotten some shitty spores. If you are doing everything right, then I blame it on the weak spores.

Try making liquid cultures with the syringe, if you can see spores in the syringe that means there are millions of them in there all it takes is 2 for germination and growth, put double the spore solution in each jar and see what happens.
