Ordered from these ppl and obviously got screwed. No responses in emails. And all phone numbers found are not working. I will give another day or 2 and then be calling my bank. Do not use these guys. Find somewhere else to order from. And I would advise that even if I do get my stuff.

Received an email stating it would be out this week. We shall see but at least I am getting some response. Oh and I changed it to neutral because apparently they check this regularly and asked me too. Will keep updated on any more developments.On March 6th, 2012, speegle01 added the following:

This company was not bad once you get in touch with someone. Had to threaten to chargeback and the next business day was sent. Lot of hassels just hope product works.

Ok so I ordered a few items from this site and its been 2 weeks and they haven't shipped my order. They sure as hell got paid. When I contacted them, they sent me a generic response saying to please give them a few days to ship. I asked them in my email if something was wrong or are the items I bought out of stock? I got the same lame email saying sorry, please give is a few days. I am so mad. I think I may just say forget about it and ask for a refund. Am I being unreasonable? They have made no effort to contact me about my order. If I hadn't of emailed them about it I probably never would've heard anything. I don't know what to do!!! Help!

Ok so I still havent heard from university scientific, but I was able to find out who the resident agent is for this company. It is Scott Crawford. It says this license is active but not in good standing. I bet!!! I keep emailing them and I've also gone on to some of their "brother" sites (websites who list the same name and mailing address as Univ. Scie) and emailed them to see if someone will respond. I also was able to obtain Scott Crawford's phone number. I called a few hours ago and spoke to his wife. She was very nice but I highly doubt she will have her husband call me back. LOL Anyhow, I will just keep calling and emailing everyone.On February 23rd, 2012, BarbieGurl86 changed the rating from negative to neutral and added the following:

ok ok first thing you have to relise is that it's a cheaper version of the mycodome, but thats not to say the product is crap. once you order the mycogarden it auto. takes out money from your account. There is no "help desk" in a since that you wont get any responce from the company at all. After reading the reviews on this site I got scared that I wouldn't even recieve a pacage. After about 2 weeks I sent them an e-ticket from their site asking about my pacage and to this day still haven't gotten a responce. I got fed up and ordered the mycodome hopping to finaly get started growing my mushies. after 3 days I recieved my tracking number for my mycodome, but later that same day I also recieved my tracking number for my mycogarden. They came in 2 days apart from each other. All in all it took 20 days to get my mycogarden. The dome dosent fit verry snug around the bottem piece and is connected with velcro making a seal verry hard to take place. The "fruiting tray" is nothing more then a dixie plate. I had to drill a hole in the top bucket for the temp. probe. I still can't figure out just what the easy casing mix P and E are (no one has info about it). Finaly they forgot to add another piece of tubing leading from the air stone to the air pump. After a 20$ trip to walmart I had everything I needed to get it up to par. But you know what, the mycodome has its flaws also. They didn't send me the right number or substrate jars and the submersible heater runs hella hot. I had to put it on a timer and crank it as low as it could go. My review of the product my sound harsh but all in all it works. Look, you can go to wallmart and buy everything you need to build your own for under 100 bucks but for convience purposes its just a click away. If you buy the mycodome your really just paying for the lid (wich by the way is alot better by comparison) but thats about it. It will grow mushrooms and it should come in but buying from a site that dosen't even respond to its costemers is kinda sketchy. I didn't have any major problems with they mycogarden but I'm hesetent to buy anything else from the site. My advise, the extra money spent for the mycodome is worth the comfort of actually having a support center.

I checked out University Scientific Corporation's prices on "laboratory supplies" because I'm always scouting for better prices for the lab where I work. The prices for graduated cylinders and Erlenmeyer flasks were outrageous, and the other prices were merely "very high". If you need laboratory supplies for whatever reason (educational,research, hobby, just because they are cool), I suggest you check prices at several suppliers.
Had no luck with their spores but that could be me. As far as sending everything and promptness they have always been fine, used them many times. Earth's Tongue is terrible taking months sometimes but their spores are the best for microscopic study. Generally you can get jars if you need them pretty quick but of course they are pricey. Spores for microscopic study are cheap and keep for a while in the fridge, mulitiple order spores and get or make substrate as you need. Patience is one of the things plants teach us.
