i don't know much yet, but from what i read they have to be fresh, seeing you have to cut the head off of a fresh stem, then place it under a sterelized glass and wait for it to drop spores..thats what i understood from gathering spores.
every now and then you have to let some humidity out , cause the head can't be surrounded by as much humidity as it was while it was growin....i t h i n k

thanks for the feedback i thought that you could only get them from fresh mushrooms but i also thought i heard they were still in them when they are dried.

if a fruitbody has started making spores before it is picked, then there will be spores on the dried gills. Growing spores from a dry mushroom (especailly one of wild origin) is difficult and requires some expertice and equipment (agar, petri dishes, ect).

Ya, contamination is the real issue with dried (or wild) specimens.
