sorry I should clarify. Not a spore syringe but a sterile syringe full of sterile water awaiting a viable cap. How long? or same?

that should last longer....the syringe is airtight...and as long as no contams can get it...electrical tape the cap to the needle...one would say it would last many many many years i would think.

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.

Like sperm, i think spores eventually slowly die off due to old age :smile:  So it may last a long ass time, but not forever.  And if no contams reach the sterile water, you shouldnt have a problem.

Yeah.  If you're just talking a sterile syringe with no water ... if you seal the cap with electrical tape or something ... they can last longer than you'll live.  :wink:

Theoretically that would be true. That is probably not the actualty. Unless you have a flow hood or something you will probably end up with contams before a year is up... if you use distilled water and make in a flow hood then a syringe could last almost indefinetly.
