My fridge was set too cold and my syringes froze. Are these spores still gonna be viable?
Thx

true true, I've lost my share of jars. The only problem that I had with the syringes was the bubbles inside and black chunks in the needle cover. I think the change in temperature expands and contracts the water when it freezes and thaws. This would suck in and push out the contents of the syringe during the cycle. It made me sure to order from THE again when I need supplies.

I had the same thing happen to me, due to a country mailbox and the dead of winter.
I'm pretty sure it probably had some detrimental effect, cause it colonized very slow.
But... It still worked... and it was frozen solid.
Not something I would reccomend to do on purpose though  :crazy:

They are still going to be viable, albeit a little less.
