Are these prints still any good?
    #2485500 - 03/30/04 11:31 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

A little over a year ago, I had a kit from Homestead.  The EZ Grow.  The results were excellent.  As it all was happening, and about to "end", I took the time to gather a few prints.
Here is a picture of them I took just now:

That's a piece of tissue paper there, with additional pieces inside.  All of them are covered, you can't even see most of what's in there.  I don't want to mess with it too much, trying to be careful.



Anyway - I wanted to ask you all if these are still good?  It's been almost 2 years.  However, I have kept them in my tool closet, which is always dark, cold, and dry(I keep big packs of dessicant in there to protect my tools, etc).  Aside from being wrapped in this tissue paper, they are also in a little hard-plastic container that is not air-tight.

The particular strain - well, if you remember Homestead, you know already.  If not-

I had already posted looking for help and that I'm going to buy another kit from some vendor, as I do not currently have the time to pursue the PF Tek route.  I may not have a chance to pursue that until next year.

I'm a little worried about these spores surviving.  And so I figure, instead of letting them go to waste, let someone benefit from them.
If someone would like them, let me know.  I'm willing to part with most of it, saving just a bit in case I get good feedback and wanna give it a shot myself.

I prefer to give it to someone that others know, just to make sure it's not a newbie that's got alterior motives.  :wink:

the spores are fine, the question is are they sterile...you could shoot up some petri dishes and then sepereate the good myc from any contams that may appear.

Dobinky - unfortunately, I am a true rookie. I know nothing about what I'm doing. So - I'd be willing to do anything you guys tell me, or, if anyone wants these - perhaps they could test them.

I cannot guarentee that they aren't sterile, but I can guarentee you this: If they are good, and you grow them - the stars will dance. No all in the same direction, no, no. Each star, dancing, in his own little way. All of them. Dancing. Yes.

So - anyone want? If not, I guess I'll just hold onto it until I see that someone wants some. Would hate to see it go to waste.

I am not selling anything, folks. I'm GIVING.

I would disreguard them if they were mine, and get new spores :wink:
Unless you do agar work, there probably useless.

go read up on agar, and see if its worth the time.

If you going to enjoy this hobby much, agar work is well worth learning imho.

Maybe try to germinate them in a Karo Jar?

I highly doubt these spores are in any way better than the majority of cubensis spores. Just purchase a new spore syringe through a Shroomery vendor.
