It depends if the lids have holes. I've had jars a month before I inoculated them, but those had no holes. I also lost about half of them to contams. If the jars have holes, I'm guessing a week, but I've never done it so I can't tell you for sure.

Well, if they are completely sterilized and covered.. essentially forever. But I would suggest just using them within a few days. It's better to waste substrate then a good syringe.. in my opionion.
