syringe storage
    #1470235 - 04/18/03 01:52 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

I beleive i read here that the spore syringes are better off in the 'fridge if one is not ready to use them for a month or two. Is this true? My buddy got a myco-bag from spore works a while back and has inoculated 3 different times with spores from TLG. Nothing---no mycelium, no contamination,--nothing---all three times. Once when he received the spores and every three weeks after. (after having the spores in the fridge). Yes he shook the syringe, and yes he squirted enough in the bag. Yes, the temp was 75 degrees and yes, it was stored in the dark.

He's not sure he wants to prepare some jars if he going to get the same results he got with the bag. Is there a reason why the bag looks the same now as it did when he received it? Should he not keep the spores wrapped up tight in the fridge? Should they be room temperature when he inoculates? Thanks

Spore syringes shelf life, refridgerated or unrefridgerated, usually is about a year. (this is from my personal experience)

I've never used those bags. But colonization temp for everything that I've ever read is 85 not 75. That's a fruiting temp.

The syringes should still be just as viable as they are now as long as they are stored in a dark place, preferably at room temperature.

My friend lept into this hobby by first trying those "Myco-Bags".  He had no success with them.  He then moved on to the PF-Tek.  Success is now a regular occurence. :smile:
