A "dark" syringe is not always a "quality" spore syringe
Most people with little experience in this hobby are quick to assume that a dark spore syringe is going to be a good one but in most cases you don't need that many spores to have success. The reality is that many vendors simulate or fake the darkness of there syringes using charcoal or dye in the water to make it appear as though there is more spores when in fact there is very little.
It is important to understand that mushroom spores are microscopic and not visible to the human eye unless they are clumped or already germinating in the syringe. A viable spore syringe does not have to be black or cloudy and if the solution has been prepared correctly you should not be able to see very many spores without a microscope. At Spores101.com the regular cubensis spore syringes will contain thousands of spores in each 10ml syringe and in most cases will appear clear, however you can upgrade the syringe with extra spores to make it darker if that is what you are expecting.
