I have syringes 4-5 months old, any good still?

What do you think? I thought syringes only last got a few months. Should I try it out or send out an order for more, fresh specimens?

In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.

I've had a syringe stored in the fridge for 6yrs. that was just as viable as the day I put it in there! :wink: You should be fine.

A friend of mine just started some spores that are two years old. I guess in a bout a week, we'll see if they worked...

She blow like a pro, oh no i got to keep her

How you gonna post on this site about your obvious grow, and then state some garbage claiming you have no idea whats goin on? Im not hatin on anyone in particular. I just think its funny that people think that their little 'disclaimers' would actually prevent legal action being takin if deemed necessary. Or am i just missing the point...

Old spore prints should be allowed to rehydrate somewhat in the syringes for best results. I believe that it can take quite awhile to rehydrate old spores (days not hours) IME.
