Spores' Durability
    #2345987 - 02/17/04 03:48 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

How easy is it for spores left in a syringe to die/become unusable. What temperature does it take? Do they have to be kept in a dark place? My second round of jars haven't started any mycellium and I am wondering if that's what happened to them?

Cool and dark is best, but they shouldn't give up the ghost too soon under any conditions except 100F+ temps.

Shoot some in some Karo or dextrose solution and see what ya got.

Sorry, I've never heard of that method. What are Karo and dextrose solutions, and do you mean look at them under a microscope?

No scope necessary!

Basically you germinate some spores in a sterile nutrient/water solution. You will be able to tell if your spores are viable as well as making them go much further by making gobs of super-fast liquid inoculum.

Check out this link

This is sort of a new and improved spin on an old idea, using tupperware and a microwave instead of jars and a PC.

There's plenty more info around, but you'll have to find it on your own unless someone else has time to point you there.
