I wouldn't worry that much. It was proven that freezing spores, either in a syringe or as a print, do not affect viability that much.

And it's logic considering the fact that during winter, most mycellium dies in nature and only way to survive remains on frozen spores that will germinate at spring.

Well, logic can lead to the opposite considering the fact that wild cubensi doesn't really grow where it freezes during winter so maybe nature doesn't feel the need to make cubensis spores freezing resistant but let just say that spores are spores and they can survive, haha :wink:

edit :  arrgh, that 600th post was lame.

cubensis may not, but other psilocybes do.

"A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
-Al Einstein
