Freezing spores
    #312532 - 05/08/01 07:30 PM (17 years, 7 months ago)

If I put a spore print in a film container with dessicant and a cotton ball (mmgg style), Can I freeze it? Will the spores stay viable? I might shut down my operation for a while, and I don't want to wait for spores.

Nothing of what I say is a personal matter. All cultivation questions are on behalf of counterparts who risk growing. I take no responsibility in being the messenger.

Give me silence, water, hope;
Give me struggle, iron, volcanoes...

I think it would be better to put them somewhere cool under 65 degrees. but i did put 3 pesa syringes in storage on accident,the water froze solid and i used them anyway and out of 36 jars only 7 did not colonize

behind every great fortune there is an even greater crime

They should be ok after being frozen. However, cubensis spores do not normally experience freezing temps, storing just in a cool dark place is prolly a better idea. They are designed by nature to last for years on their own.
