Im planning on doing some long term storage on Mycelium. Are there any good teks for this? I tried looking but found nothing I know this practice is done. What I was thinking is taking mycelium off of agar then just throwing it in some sterile distilled water in a test tube. Sound good?

Try this: http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23543

But best if you used Test Tubes:

Clear borosilicate glass test tubes with autoclavable screw cap and white "window" for erasable inscriptions. Used primarily in the long-term storage of pure cultures.

i read something about covering a slant with some form of mineral oil. its supposed to suspend it for years and years.

I am gearing up to try the distilled water with tissue in Epindorf tubes (on the tek page). I bought a bag of 1.5 cc tubes, sold half to my buddy, and I still have thousands of em. Bag was like $20 bucks. (I also bought a box of test tubes with the cool screw on lids, the box was open and they wanted to get rid of em!) We also bought the real mixed PDA agar! It is so clear (ya, I know I can make it for pennys, but IM telling this story!) It was only $80 a lb. Chemical glass houses are so cool. I've also been following the guys on the dried mycillin thread.. The thing with the mineral oil sounds interesting, it is in Stanmet's book. lots of opportunity's!
