syringe storage and mult. generations
    #368936 - 08/08/01 08:10 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

I was wondering, if you put a spore syringe in the refrigerator, does it take longer for the spores to "wake up" when you inocculate your jars? The first few weeks I had my syringes, I stored them at room temp., but read somewhere that they keep longer in the frige. So that's where they went. However, my first batch colonized so well that now I'm wondering if maybe I should take each syringe out and let it warm up for a few days prior to using it. Any thoughts?
Also, I would like to eventually make my own spore prints, but have heard that shrooms lose there potency after about three generations. Does this mean that to maximize my yield, that I should make as many spore prints as possible in the first generation? Even so I would eventually have to go out and buy them somewhere else. This is kind of hypothetical, but it would be nice to be absolutely, 100% sure, all the time that the spores that I am getting are going to be reliable. I am well aware that there are some very highly respected suppliers on this forum, but what about two years down the road, say that spores aren't so easy to obtain in the brave new world? What then, huh? Anyway, I'm really curious to hear some input, even though it's kind of hypothetical. Tx

Leave them in the fridge until your ready to inoculate. They'll warm up fast enuf, once in the jars.
It takes many,many generations for a strain to weaken. Although it is nice to have some extra stock around, so yeah, take some prints. Then again there's cloning. Good to see your thinking ahead.
