expired spores?!
    #1547108 - 05/14/03 02:33 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

so i found these cambodian spores from about a year ago when ralphster was given some out. well i completely forgot about them and found them still in the envelope unopened freshly sealed in the bottom of some drawer in a dictionary. so i decide to use them and use WBS... 6t wbs tek to be exact. its been almost 2 weeks since incolation and still no signs of mycelia growth... the birdseed is now somewhat dry and looks like theyre doing jack shit... not even friggin contams. at least if i got some contams i know they were at least doing something and my hardwork didnt go to waste in preparing 30 of these jars... so yeah you know you have slow/bunk jars when youll even be happy to see some contams... anyways back to my simple question.... do spores "expire"...?

You may have to rehydrate them in sterile water first. They can die eventually but I'd guess there are still spores there that are viable.

You could always drop some on agar....

Yes if they weren't preserved in the fridge.

absolutely not a problem of fridge or anything...(you don't keep your prints in fridge !) You just must rehydrate your spores before to use it...the older they are, the longer they must stay in water (sometimes i had to keep it one week in water)...and if your substrate looks dry that is not surprising that nothing grows in your jars...hydrate it ! good luck !
