Spores Viable? Lifespan
    #4361143 - 07/01/05 10:24 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

How long do active spores remain viable? I have found actives in a pasture 2 years ago, but last summer was pretty cold, is there still a chance to find them this year?

I've heard after one year the viability drops to 1/10. And after 5years it's pretty much bogus. Don't quote me. I want to hear from the experts.

these long agonizing months without you...have been long and agonizing..

heat is an enemy to spores, not cold.

I had a half pint of spore solution I made up a little over a half year ago. I used it almost two weeks ago to knock up some jars and they still haven't shown signs of growth. The jar of spore solution was stored at room temp.
