Smart Botanics
    #476884 - 12/02/01 07:35 AM (15 years, 10 days ago)

Hi

Does anyone have any dealings with Smart Botanics? I don't want to slag them off, but I ordered a spore from them (which took over a month to arrive) and I have been completely unsuccessful with trying to get shrooms to grow.

I have been very, very careful in preparing the jars with Brown Flour Rice / Verm. / sterylising and innoculating the jars, but every time nothing appears in the jars

Looking inside the syringe, I can see small bits of print, but literally only a few bits - the water is otherwise clear.

I feel like I have wasted my money - am I entitled to ask for another one, or would they think I was taking the piss?

Yours, Sadly :(

peter

I ordered an Azure print from them over two years ago and still haven't received it. Try a local vendor.......

I ordered some syringes from them in 1997 and they were like you described from the look.

But they worked ok.

II have ordered from them recently and they only took two weeks to arrive. Still wating for the shrooms to grow though.
But in the past i have ordered from them and sometimes the spore did not work but that could of just be me.

They are known to have, not exactly "top notch" stuff..Go with www.mushmush.nl instead..they are the vendor to go with in Europe.

They used to be good but no now they've been taken over by Amazing Nature. I ordered from them earlier this year - after a series of unanswered emails I eventually got my syringe. I ordered again - no syringe, no replies nothing.

Definately would not recommend them.

www.mushmush.nl looks like a realy good site will defiantly try them in the future. I noticed they have a greater choice of spores than smart botanicsand prices seem good too.

I ordered from them last year - the syringe took 3 weeks to arrive, and I don't think it was completely sterile, since the mycelium grew with pink contaminant. I chucked all the cakes in the end and gave up.

VorticistsSuite and StormDamage, I do hope you are talking about Smart Botanics and not MushMush.
MushMush got nothing BUT *QUALITY* products. They are a vendor to be compared with quality to SporeWorks or RycheHawk. They specialize in mushrooms and they are not a smart shop like Smart Botanics. If you are in europe, I suggest you buy your spores from MushMush.nl (Or BiO if you want cultures)

I don't like Smart Botanics, my order a few years back when I was living in Iceland took a lengthy amount of time... I know spore syringes are usually pretty clear, but these ones just looked like water :smile:  I had less than spectacular results with germination.....

If you live in Europe, you should definately avoid Smart Botanics and go with a excellent vendor like www.mushmush.nl ... Smart botanics doesn't come close to the quality and service of mushmush.nl....
