Frozen Spores?
    #1246200 - 01/24/03 03:31 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

It is really cold here, about -5C and my spores should be here by monday, however the way our mail is deilvered I am afraid that the mailman will be leaving them by my doorstep which is outside and will freeze my spore syringes, do they survive freezing temps?, should i just let them thaw out at room temp?

I have used spores that ended up freezing in my mail box.  After the syringe thawed and I innoculated, I noticed no difference in growth.  Spores are pretty resilient to cold but not to heat.

Someone should do a test, cuz I've never seen this answered accuritly. I mean freeze a syring and see how it works...

... damn, The little guy got good prices, maybe I'll give it a go...

Agreed. I would like to see the results of some simple research on this. If for no other reason then to get an absolute concrete answer to this.

I have nothing to back this up with but spore syringes may not be affected exactally like spore prints. The reason I say this is the spores in a syringe are hydrated unlike the ones from a print.

In any case some research would be nice. Unfortuantly I am not in a position to do such a test currently. Maybe if nobody eles gets around to it I'll do it in a few months.

Nobody

It's been done.
Frozen syringe...then un-thawed and it colonized the substrate just fine.

yeah didn't ryche do this to like 6 syringes? IIRC there were no problems after like 6 months of being frozen (weeks?). I KNOW from personal experience that freezing doesn't hurt them. can you think of any other mold/fungus spore that dies from freezing? thought so... if the frozen spore thing isn't in the faq by now then it should be, it gets asked about too much for a simple yes/no question.
