Spores in the freezer?
    #1184554 - 01/02/03 09:37 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Does freezing the spores in the freezer, destroy the spores?
Have about 10 spores in the freezer now been there for about 2-3 months now...

The freezer will kill the spores. The fridge, on the other hand, will do the job. Try doing some jars....see if they're still viable.

yes, i would assume that spores in a freezer for 2-3 months are now useless. still it wouldn't hurt to try them for knowledge sake if nothing else.

to be honest, i wouldn't waist your time or substrate... ive made that mistake in my noob days. it was a lost cause and i had to throw it all out and resterilize and all kinds of shiat.... i would just get a new print or syringe and go from there.

casing is just a layer over substrate. the substrate can be anything certainly not limited to a cake.

your right. it does include casing any type of substrate. but breaking a cake up and puting a 'casing' layer over it, is a casing. i was merely talking in the sense of what i do... thats all

I know this tread is pretty old, but I just wanted to mention that I kept my spores in the freezer(-28 degree Celsius) for 5 months, because I didn't read it would kill them and they still germinated.

:alert: Everything I post is completely fictitious, and for your amusement only. All the pictures I post are either photoshopped or ripped from the internet. Whenever i trade for spores it is for examining the spores under microscopes to see their characteristics. There is no reason why I would ever want to nor will I grow mushrooms containing psilocybin. :alert:
