How long can syringes be stored?
    #3356151 - 11/13/04 04:47 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I have a box full of syringes containing various strains that I purchased from Ralphster about six months ago. I have been out of the country for most of that time and have been unable to.... um...look at them under the microscope. A friend of mine asked me how long I thought unused syringes could be kept before they would no longer be able to produce mushrooms IF one were so inclined to engage in the illegal activity of trying to grow them--which I am not, of course. The syringes have been kept in a dark place at about 78 degrees for the entire time. Does anyone know if they are still "good"? They don't look to be any different than they looked when I first got them but I just want to be sure before I invest all the money in a new...um...microscope. Any one know a good rule of thumb for how long syringes last?

I have heard shelf life is 2-3 years.

theyre way better when stored in the fridge. you may get them to grow but id say theyve had at least a few spores die
