no experience with old syringes, but there are threads here that state they have used them 2 yrs old and they were still viable.

You can stick a syringe in your drawer for a decade and have pretty good chances at it still being viable.

i have a friend that used one of my old syringes, i no longer grow and decided that no loss if they were bad. they were about 2 years old, left in the fridge, and are working just fine.

I had some that were stored in a shed for 2 years, temps as high as 100F and as
low as 0F, I gave them to a friend and he said he had no problem with them

Colder is better (to a point, dont want to freeze them, though they still could be viable after freezing), I was just saying room temp in a drawer because the fridge isnt needed. Personally I only have enough room for cultures in the fridge so my spores stay in a drawer.

Yeah, a friend of mine gave me a syringe with 2cc of B+ spores that were ~1.5 years old, and were kept in a pocket of a pair of jeans in his closet.

That 2cc was then turned into a gigantic jar of honey culture. Now I have more B+ than I know what to do with...
