About spore germination...
    #1023698 - 11/05/02 11:26 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I recently acquired from mycomania.com a few mycomania bags, which look quite cool.
I inoculated a "grain loving mycobag" with a spore solution containing cubensis equador spores...
After 10 days, no signs of colonization.
I'm starting to doubt my spores we're a bit old?
I have no idea of how long a spore syringe can last for, i kept it for like a year in a box, in the dark.
Is that too long?
And if the spores are dead and therefore haven't germinated, will that cause contamination, or can I try inoculating with a newer syringe?
Thanks
lem

Did you keep the syringe in the fridge in a box for a year? I don't think syringes can be kept for that long, I think the longest that I've seen was 4 or 5 months and that was in the fridge. You may want to get a new syringe and reinoculate, hopefully you didn't introduce contams when you inoculated the first time. But then again, 10 days is not that long to wait for germination.

What temps are you germinating in ?
Syringes are spose to be fresh when vendor sends them , so question what you are doing first , then if all fails contact the vendor , most of them are more than willing to help . Most will send you more if they feel you did all correctly .
Good Luck

OOOPPPPPSSSS Did not read fully one year in water in my opinion is too long , but I prefer spores myself . Yes one year could be the problem . But keep in 86*F constant and see what happens if after another week no growth , try again !
