Storing Syringes
    #1485838 - 04/23/03 01:09 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Hey there!

I have ordered syringes from five different companies to see who has the best service. I will have a number of syringes to store while experimenting.

What is the best way to keep the spores viable and for how long?

Thanks

Newto

Put them in the refrigerator.

They'll keep for a year easy in the refrigerator.

Ya, go with cold storage if possible. But i just keep mind in a box with my other supplies hidden away and keep in the dark where it's cool. They should last at least 3-5months if you do that and still germinate fairly good.

peace, dp

make sure you put them in a ziplock bag before placing in the refridge...

Don't put your syringes in the freezer!

Soo, you can freeze mycelium but not spores? I would think spores could survive being suspended in ice.

I think the concern is that the syringe would crack from the water expanding and not having anywhere to go

they shouldnt be exposed to light. CatDog stores his in the cardboard box the jars come in, sealed, and closed up so no light can get in. he says that room temp is fine. matter of fact, he had a print from a friend, unknown source, unknown strain until they fruited and they came from a dry print between two sheets of white index cards in a ziplock baggie that had been stored for over 2 years. he used a glovebox to transfer the print from the index card to a syringe. He said that it was his first successful fruiting out of three tries. Contams ruined the first two batches for him. So 2 year old dry spore prints are still viable. "Proof is in the pudding", Catdog says.

ciao
