How long are spores good for?
    #4713607 - 09/26/05 12:51 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Hey all. We had a bit of a scare so we decided to hold off on cultivation for a little while. How long are the spores in the syringes good for?

Thanks!

If its a multispore syringe just put it in a ziplock bag and store it in ur fridge on the door where u would store ur butter. Good for more than a year but u probably wont let them sit that long. :grin:

Longest I've had was 6 years and still quite viable. :laugh:

How long will they last if you don't put them in the fridge?

There is no definite answer to that one, but they do tend to last a long time if you keep them in a cool, dark place.

I just put mine in the fridge in a ziplock, then that in a small cardboard box. Been in a warm dark drawer for about a month before now. Hopefully they'll be good, thanks.

6 years???, holy crap. I suppose that means they could last for even longer. Still, those little spores blow my mind
