Green mold spores/cold air
    #3081891 - 09/02/04 10:55 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Did a search and cant find anything....last fall a friend of mine made some syringes and stored them in a cold environment (refrigerator) for approx 7-8 months. This spring he used these syringes to grow more shrooms...from these shrooms he started to make more syringes the same way he made them last fall....BUT this time some of the syringes are contaminated with green mold...
MY QUESTION:
can prolonged exposure to cold temperatures kill green mold spores in suspension
with the shroom spores

thanks

No, i don't think so.
One has to be careful when putting a syringe inside such "dirty" compartment like a refrigerator is. Put the syringes inside a well closed plastic bag and then inside the refrigerator.
As far as i know only freezing temperatures bellow 0?C can destroy the spores, as a result of retraction and crystallization of the medium.
