I'm trying to decide where to buy my spores...any reccomendations?

Also, the guide I'm using suggests I grow P. Cubensis (Amazonian strain) for my first time. Does it really matter? Are they easier to grow or something like that? Where is the best place to buy them.

One last thing....maybe I'm being a bit paranoid, but what is the safest way to order these things? Check? Money order? Credit card? I know they're legal, but I don't really want a record of the transaction......

Super paranoid? Let me know what you think.

Thanks again to everyone!

Claw :)

Fanaticus it is......

Now for the next newbie question....
When you order, do you use your real name? I know this all sounds silly, but I'm new at this and I've got a bit of paranoia. I know the spores are legal, and after all I just wanna look at them under a microscope.....:) hehe
but all the same, I'm feeling a bit apprehensive.
Would anyone tell me how you order spores as an example?
Please help me get rid of my silly fears...

Thanks again folks!
Claw

Timothy, thats quite odd... every time my friend ordered her syringes (2 at a time) they came within a week or two and she's not had a contam yet and theyre usually pretty damn full of spores (visibly)

I ordered from fanaticus, put a $20 bill in an envelope with a piece of paper that said I wanted 2 PF classic syringes, thanks, and then I included my mailing address with my real name.

PF cuts the address out of your letter, and tapes it to the box, and then destroys the letter. Several years ago, I ordered from him, as well, using a fake name. Doesn't really seem to matter, just a question of what you're comfortable with.

PF syringes are sterile. Don't worry, be happy:)
Shake well before use!

Spores mixed with a bit of gelatinous tissue that dropped off during the peak of the spore drop. The gills shed tissue when they get going heavy. It's slime, but it's sterile slime, guaranteed. Shake these "slimy" syringes well before you shoot with them to help disperse the clumps. Hawaiian's print heavy and shed lots of tissue.

I was just told by a friend that sending spores though the mail has just been outlawed because apparently the guy in Florida who got Anthrax, got it from spores being sent through the mail. Has anyone heard anything about this? Or is my friend just pulling my leg. He said he saw it on the news and seemed pretty serious.

I have searched all the news wires and can find no mention of spores other than bacterial spores. It's probably a rumor.

Well you may be a little thin, but there are spores in there I am sure. They are hard to see when the concentrations are very low... But that does not mean the syringes are impotent. PF syringes are sometimes clear with little or no spores visible... But they still work fine, I am sure yours will too

Pam,
My friend freaked when he got his syringes. He thought it was a scam. He shot those "apparently worthless" things and they grew like crazy!
