Thoughts on viability of 1 year old prints and syringes stored in a sealed zip lock in the dark at temps no higher then 80F. Any long term survivors stories?

Only one way to find out, knock up some jars. Then youll have survival stories of your own to tell the grandchildren:lol:

Already in progress :smile: That is kinda what prompted the question. Never really waited this long to use spores but had a bit of a stock pile :grin:

I was sent a Golden Teacher print in January 2002. I didn't actually start shrooms until the 6th April 2003. It kicked off in PF cakes almost straight away. But I did store the print in the fridge in a sealed plastic bag.

there was a thread here a few months back about someone having sucess with a print that was about 15 years old.so i'd guess that they are much more resilliant than most people would belive.

Some guy successfully used a 3 year old print that was sitting in a pile of dust on his bookshelf. He did agar isolation and it worked out very well.

Just a quick update. Inoculated Tasmanian, Cambodian, Pink Buffalo, Creeper, Gulf Coast and Plantasia Mystery to WBS. Gave each jar an extra squirt to make sure and all but the GC's are doing very well :smile: PM's were in a 1 year old syringe, all others were prints. Gotta love it. :cool:

if spores are refrigerated,  generally they will last forever.  they can travel through space  where temperatures are very low.  they will drift through vacume until they  come to a viable atmosphere,  thats how they got to earth.  just my opinion tho  :laugh: lol
