Just found some 4 year old Khat seeds.

20 of them that I ordered from basement shaman ages ago, and never did anything with.

How long do these seeds stay viable for?

Actually, it's very easy to isolate a super producing sclerotia strain.

Follow the strain isolation technique on Let's Grow Mushrooms, and then select sectors early which are brown in color.  By the second or third transfer, you'll see stones developing, and this is only about 1 month after the original swipe of spores on agar.

Now, take each stone and move it to a new dish.  Soon, the mycelium will grow out and you'll see fresh stones developing, and if they're good strains, the sclerotia is forming long before the mycelium reaches the edge of the plate.  Pick strains which form four or five stones within two weeks and use these for your grain masters.

i doubt they are viable anymore , i can be wrong , but ive grown khat for some years now, and when ive used old seeds to grow (half a year) gettin them to germinate has been harder and some seeds have not germinated at all. but this is my guess, dont take it for the truth, its either way worth trying, have them in warm (not hot) water first :smile:
