It depends on how you store them. I stored a spore syringe in the top of my closet for two months and inoculated some popcorn with it last week. The jars are coming along nicely so, therefore the spores are good. The fridge would be the best place to store the syringes (but I forgot that I had placed that syringe in a box that I put up in my closet) and they will stay good for months if not even a year or more.

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.
