Fucking Germination
    #2542093 - 04/09/04 03:18 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

On the 1st of this month I inoculated some popcorn, but the spores I used must have been over a year old. Today looking at it there are no signs of germination. I have never had this problem in the past in fact germination usually happens really fast.

how long can spores go 4?

That's a fine little shroom!!!

it all depends on how hot they got and shit like that
but I have read about syringes lasting 2 years in a storege unit with high and low temps and still be good.
and prints lasting up too 20 years in one case

1 year is not that much for a print if properly conserved, neither for a syringe IME.
Besides, what are your incubation temps?

Viability will decline over the years, but a properly cured and stored print can last decades. 1 year is nothing. Perhaps increase the amount of spores in your solution. I had a similar episode happen to me with a very stubborn print, and that is how I solved it.
