Spores under a microscope.

Sorry for posting this twice - i posted in the Advanced Cult. but nobody is ever in there to answer.

Say you get some spore syringes, and you inject the spore solution onto your microscope slides - how can you tell if the spores would actually develop myc. or if they are simply "dead"? What would they look like? any links to pictures?

If the spores are say put under extremely hot temps. is it possible for them to "not be functional". If they were nonfunctional what would they look like under the microscope compared to if they were functional.

Spores aren't like seeds. They have 4 different sexed spores that mates with others to start growing. Prepare them with some sugar(Dextrose is good) or malt solution(very diluted 1-5%) then wait couple of days. Then put the solution under the microscope and you'll see a slightly better picture of what goes on.

Well do the different sexed spores have different appearances. Also what does contamination in a syringe look like - if this is possible.

Spores are definitely alive, just not dividing, until they find themselves in the right environment.

Has anyone even seen non-functional spores before under a microscope. I know what functional spores look like, but when i heat up the fluid I don't see a difference, but i thought heat "killed the spores". Maybe I'm not heating it up enough - but I only have about 1cc left so I want to know what they will look like as (non-functional spores) - I also want to see contam. spores - what would the contam look like, and how can i contam. them?
