yes, you should be able to make a spore suspension from the remnants of the bag (i.e. that little black dust.) It'll be difficult, but it is possible.
think they're something in the info section bout it...suggest you go look.

Dude, if you have ANY options at all (and you do): DO NOT MAKE YOUR PRINT IN THIS FASHION.

There are people on this forum that could do that sucessfully , and I am going to take a wild guess and say you aren't one of those people. Don't feel bad, I am not 1 of those people either.

try Ralphster for a decent spore print, and go from there.

Syringe is probably better...just to be sure that contaimination doesn't come from outside...here's a syringe tek..

Honestly, i have no idea what success rate you're going to get with this...seems to me that the odds would be pretty good of you getting contaiminents. But it's worth a try. Good luck, and
Stay Frosty.

YEah, or the free spore ring. They're helpful.

The chances of them germinating are very small!
The chances of you getting contams are very high!

I understand that contams would be hideous in this case, but why do you say that the germination would be low? Spores are pretty hardy things... i don't see a realy problem with germination as long as they were properly hydrated before hand. Care to explain your reasoning?

I think you need fresh shrooms. If you buy fresh shrooms to someone and then you try to take a spore print, it will probably be contaminated cause you don?t really know how the guy handled the shrooms. Do some agar and see if there is any contamination, this way you can do transfers of healthy mycellium to sterile agar plates till you get a 100% free contam plate.

Do yourself a favor and go buy a spore syringe online. They're only 15 bucks and you will save yourself a major headache. It is possible to use spores from dried shrooms, but given your level of experience it is very, very likely that you will get contamination. I'd give any newb about a 2% chance.

If you want to resurect dry shrooms, you will probably need to grow on agar. My friend, Don Quixote has tried to do what you suggested many times without success (well, one jar worked... 'till he killed it with Lysol)... but he hasn't tried agar... yet.

His success rate with sporeprints and store bought syringes is 100%
