Zero Results
« on: February 24, 2007, 04:28:07 PM »

 I have tried the PF TEK, Simple Minds TEK, and others with absolutely no results. Would bad spores be the only cause for this? I can't even get contam. I got to spores from a well-known site. Could the syringes be bad? Any ideas?

try getting spores from here http://www.shroomery.org/sponsors.php
if that still doesnt solve the problem, it could be enviormental conditions.
thats just a suggestion bro  -_-

Did you buy a spore syringe? Did you shake the syringe well before inoculation? Did you inoculate in a way that a drop of spore suspension visibly ran down the inner surface of the jar?

Were the jars completely cooled off when you inoculated them?

Sounds like old spores then, you might consider  contacting  the vendor for replacement.

are you within the proper temperature ranges? Not a likely cause, but worth a shot anyway.
