I've had good results with Earthstongue. They give you 20cc in the syringe.

Spore Works did me right.
Less than a week delivery.
Nicely packaged with alcohol swabs, needles,microscope slide, and an extra Penis Envy syringe.

Way better that "spores101" by 10 fold.
Don't use "spores101" I have had no luck getting any colonization from there spores and the amount of spores contained in a syringe compared to spore works is laughable. I have read other bad reviews of "spores101" since my purchase. I should have asked the same question before starting in this hobby.

i get my spores at http://www.microsporetech.com/spores.htm or http://www.ralphstersspores.com/ both of them are great places to get spores.. ralphs has a big verity, micro has fast shipping. for $5 shipping my spores came in 3 days.

Agreed, SPOREWORKS.COM is where I go for all of my spores, and have been for years. They have a lot of strains that some places don't have, and even have a couple of PF originals. Usually packed to 12cc's and always sterile.

They might come thru but that names a little shady, I thought I got ripped off from Tennstud once cuz it took a while and I found some shit I did not wanna see but it turned out straight in the end so time will tell.

avoid sporestore and sporebank, which from all the bad reports ive seen, seem to be scams.

sporeworks
ralphsters
thehawkseye
Earthtongue

are all good vendors. Personaly i recomend earths tongue, 20CC syringes, growth by day 2 and fast colinisation. ive never had such good results from other vendors.

spores 101 did me very well fast shipping fair price and the strain was very hearty as i ordered from ralph's the same day took 2 weeks longer to get and the colonizing seemed week compared to 101's spores.although i did argentine bensi's from spores 101 and b+ from ralphs hope this helps

I've got direct succes 8 -9 years ago with a golden teacher print from www.fsre.nl, I traded every flush new prints with them and created a vaste collection of strains, I never acquired spores from a commercial vendor.
