How many years will spore prints stay fresh & useable under good conditions & wrapped in plastic? :print:

I would say under very good and dry conditions it could last really long. But I think the longer you leave it the less variable it becomes. I don't think anybody ever thought of keeping a spore print for years...

I never supposed for the love of me that it would all be so vivid.

i wouldn't trust it after a year, but i've heard of ones being used that were older than that.

I've used a Thai print that had changed hands from multiple people and kept in closets and the insides of cars etc and to my knowledge was at least 2 years old. Put her in a karo jar and got a little myc and spawned it into a WBS jar. Was kinda sluggish in the karo but it worked. You never know. As a rule I usually keep nothing older than 6 months though.


That said: How long a lifespan does a colonized jar have or a liquid culture thats been colonized and put in a fridge? What do you guys think?

I would definately trust a print that is over a year. As long as it was kept sterile, refrigirated or not, it's probably still viable.

If some people were able to grow from 10 and even 15 years old prints, it ain't dying that fast.

Of course, some spores might die with times but with millions on a single prints, you sure can germinate a bunch of em...
