How do I preserve my spore prints?
    #3430592 - 12/01/04 01:24 AM (12 years, 9 days ago)

I made 10 spore prints from 10 freshly picked caps. The caps were placed on laminated playing cards. I cut them in half and then tapped both sides with clear moving tape. Afterwards I placed all the cards with spore prints in ziploc bags as quickly as possible. Now what should I do to preserve my prints? For now I just put them in the fridge and kept them in their bags. What should i do now???

Um. You could have jus done this...

1.pick mushroom
2.put aplastic tack in it to be able to pick it up later
3.get w/e u are putting the print on and put it in a mason jar
4.quickly transfer the mushroom from the fruiting chamber to the jar
5.screw on the lid and after 24-48hrs(nice think print), take it out
6.then just keep em in the jar.

I dont know how long they last in there but i've left mine in there for about 3-4 months and they were still good.

The main thing is don't handle them. They'll store fine in a drawer or a shoebox, keep them from sunlight and moisture. Don't open them till you're ready to start your research.

Seal-a-meal has worked for my foaf for years. Tuck away in cool dry place for as much as 3 years & still viable.

I personally take them on wax paper/heavy foil and do the fold 'n tape. then i put them in an extra half pint jar. threw one of those silica gel packs from my new shoes in there to ward off moisture.

IGnostic has a good tek there. I read it somewhere else too. Seems to work rather well. Also, I read somewhere that you shouldn't put mushies in a ziploc bag and into the fridge when they are fresh like that, can cause the moisture to build and it will decay. That might affect your prints. Not sure if this is fully true. Can someone else vouche for this?

A cool (not the fridge), dark, dry place is best, in a jar or zip loc bag is good . Personally I do them on good quality foil (new non stick stuff) double fold the edges (no tape), found it is a problem when it comes time to open them . They will keep for ..... just used one recently that was 2 yrs old and they germinated just fine .
The reason not to store in fridge is ...humidity and sometimes fridge is place for forgotten science projects  :wink:
