I hit the jackpot, pot, pot,
    #2194742 - 12/22/03 12:47 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I found a secret stash while cleaning out a shed for a friend
Acadian, PESA, Mat Rom, B+, PR, Cambo, F+, EQ, Thai PB. and a couple of mystery syringes. Here is the catch, these suckers are old. most are undated but the ones that are are a couple of years old. The acadian coast is almost a solid mass of mycelium and a few other are pretty close.

any odds on viability? the temps were into the 98 range on the high side and -5 on the low end. how about now?

I think I gots me a little project. I'll make a log and keep track of what does what.

so they're liquid culture syringes or spore syringes?
if they're spore syringes maybe, it's worth a shot.
if they are mycelium syringes, they are almost definately dead.

one was a liquid culture the rest were spore syringes but most of the spore syringes are now cultures, aparently some of the spore had incubated in the water.

I'll try them all, except the culture syringe, the funky looking black stuff at the end of the needle says it's not a good idea.

The black might be from flame sterilization of the needle tips. (maybe burned vermiculite too)
only one way to find out if they are viable.

its a contaminant, it fills most of the needle cover and appears to be working its way into the syringe.

Change needles , then expel a good portion of the syringe . Then do a liquid innoculation jar. Karo is cheap and a microwave does wonders.

this is like preaching to god, I've been doing this for several years. the one syringe isnt worth saving, the liquid inside is brown and sugar crystals are forming. there is one that has mycelium in the needle cover that looks healthy I'll be using.

this is more an experiment to see if the low extreme tem of -5F has killed the spores, if it hasnt then we have a few new things to ponder with shipping

I'm sorry, wasnt thinking about how I stated my reply. looking back I guess I am an ass. it wasnt my intention.

284 27, your method does work, I had a couple that were broken in transit and recovered the liquid by drawing it from the bad syringe with a new one, pretty good sucess rate to, and thinking about it now I may actualy try you method with this one just to see if it's recoverable, it's a couple of years old and the contam is past the hub and just starting into the syringe. what do I have to loose, a little bird seed, then we would know if a kayro syringe can last more than a couple of weeks, even out of refridgeration.
