clumps in my syringe.
    #1114446 - 12/05/02 05:33 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

I will be attempting my first grow soon. I have been reading through posts without posting much. I purchased 2 spore syringes from a friend across the way, and  he said they were stored in the back of the freezer for about a month. Now there are clumps of spores in the syringes. I tried to shake them up to break the spores up, but they stayed clumped. Should I wrap the syringes in aluminum foil or a ziplock bag and place them in warm water? Would that break them up? Or will it be a waste of time , have the spores already been destroyed by the cold temps? If this is the case, then my first grow will be postponed even longer  :mad: :confused:. But if they are ok, even perhaps 60% viable I will continue as planned. Thanks for your opinions/answers.

Well if spores can survive outerspace, they could probably survive the freezer. I wouldn't bother trying to break the clumps up, just innoculat the jars as normal and see if it works. A few jars will probably be significantly slower though if they dont get equal spores, but theywill still conlonize.

I suggest storing them in a dark place at room temperature for a day rather then submersing them in warm water.
