Non-dessiccated spore print preservation
    #4127799 - 05/03/05 03:01 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I recently took a few spore prints from a new flush of PFs i'm growing, and since i had no dessiccant at the time, I simply had the spores deposited on aluminium foil (sterilised with rubbing alcohol) and had this covered with cling film immediately after the caps were removed.I then placed the sealed spore prints in a microwave-sterilised glass jar (which was completely dry) and sealed this again. I placed this jar in the fridge. now my main concern is not having dessiccated them, and I do not know how badly this will affect my spores. How long would they keep before going off?
