Old Spores?
    #1799549 - 08/10/03 10:42 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Now its been a while since i have even came to this forum. But some spores i have that i got 3 years ago dont seem to be performing very well. Is there a shelvelife for spores? I wont think they would be bad but they dont seem to be doing anything. Any advise?

How long is a print viable?

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


How long is a syringe viable?

If kept in a fridge a syringe is viable without much loss of viability for around 6 months, but syringes as old as 2.5 years and older have been reported still viable.

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.
