A print, properly stored in a cold, dark, dry place, can remain viable for many years, maybe as long as a decade or more. A syringe, stored in a refrigerator (not frozen), will easily remain viable for a year or more.

3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

Syringes should be used within a month or two, but have been known to last 6 months or more. the reason for using them soon is that spore prints can contain things other than mushroom spores due to the the fact that mushrooms do not grow in perfectly sterile conditions, and anything you do to destroy bacteria or other spores may harm the mushroom spores. the idea is that you have young vital mushroom spores able to out compete any other little bugs that may be in that syringe. Syringes last longer when kept in a sterile plastic bag in the refridgerator. As for spore prints, if kept cool and dry they can stay vital for a year or two with no problems. And lastly cultures take more care and better equipment to maintain than a newbie even needs to think about. start with the basics. baby steps before leaps.
