Title: Website that I bought Spores from
Post by: ProdigyPanda on March 01, 2012, 03:49:57 PM
I got the 'Oasis' spores syringe from  sporestore.com

and my first batch just didnt seem right...it had white mycelium growing and on the edges of it was pink.... and then one or two jars had dark blackish spots....not sure if it was moisture or what....so I ended up throwing them all away...

Started a second batch.  Steamed my jars TWICE.  Did everything I was suppose to.  (USING BROWN RICE FLOUR CAKE METHOD) pf-tek?
 I've made my area clean with alcohol and lysol in the air...clean hands..everything. Lighter for my needle.

Yet this second batch is also showing pink in my jars now..even a blackish spot in one jar. cob web spot in one.

Am I doing something really wrong? Or is the website selling bad spores? (fakes)

PLEASE HELP. Pictures coming soon if you need them but they are too big of a file so id be thru tinypic.url

More than likely its contamination from not being clean enough.  i have never ordered anything from sporestore.com, but if you doubt them I recommend http://ralphstersspores.com/  your contamination could be coming from any number of points. i say clean your jars very well and follow the pf tek on this site to the "t".  use a candle instead of a lighter and flame the needle after each jar.  there is a tek i remember using an oven to help keep contamination out while innoculating. heat the oven on a low temp and then pull the top rack out and use it as your table top and do all your work right down almost inside the oven.  the idea behind this is that hot air rises so nothing can fall out of the air into your jars because all the air is going up.  i have heard conflicting results from this but have never had contamination when i have used it.

I started ordering from Caligrowkits.com about a year ago after I found them on Google and I have stuck with them because they sell a high quality product. They also have pretty good prices. Shipping was average speed and the packaging was discreet just like they say. In the year I have been using them I havenít had any issues. They work for me.

Wondering if any of these websites sell spores that have psilocybin in it?
