Old Spores, GREAT RESULTS
    #1491123 - 04/24/03 10:56 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

My friend had been sitting on top of two spore prints and a spore syringe and decided to go ahead and use them since vendors seem to be disappearing like so much smoke. Basically he wanted to see if he could save himself a little time and money by taking a shot with these aged materials.
Turns out that after making a few syringes, that the cakes he made with them fully colonized in 12 days. This is the fastest he ever had cakes fully colonize. Just another example that even though shrooms follow certain similar 'behaviors', not all of them march to the beat of the same drummer.
This is in no way meant to convince new growers to allow thier spores to age, but instead to be brave and try things yourself.

It really shouldn't matter what the strain was. I've used spore prints that were 10 -15 years old, and still had excellent results. Even using multispore as opposed to agar.

I was JUST curious as to what strain they were just because. I know the strain of spores has nothing to do with it.

Mutha facko.

What's terrible is that the things are so old he has no idea what strain they are. I think he is gonna call them the Saturn Strain for thier old age.
