"A print is viable for several years if stored in a cold, dark and dry place"

Wow I never thought they could last that long. Cool

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.

I have seen PF syringes work beautifully 3 years after being purchased, stored in a dirty card board box in a garage.

3 years that's a long time for a syringe I bet they were happy when it germinated huh?

I'm about to get back into growing, just bought 4 18 gallon rubbermaid containers at walmart a week ago. I have prints that ange between 11/2 - 2 1/2 years old now, but they'll most likely wok fine. God knows how sterile, though.

a little off-topic here, but sort of related, since spores apparently can travel through space (?)

Does anyone know if there has been any micro-gravity mushrooms experiments, anything on the ISS? micro-gravity mushrooms must be cool, right? :wink:

I searched and all I could find was cream of mushroom soup, and plans to experiment with "Mushroom growth on residual biomass" for waste management. Any mycologists out there looking for a job with NASA?

That would be cool...We should flood space with sacred mushroom spores, that way they could travel to other worlds and bring the magic with them =)

Wonder if that's how they came here?
