Re: Spore Syringes Stored In Cold Temps

No, the cold weather will be just fine for the spores. It is heat that will do damage to them and make them unable to germinate. Actually, many people store their spores in their fridge to prevent any heat whatsoever. Also, cultures of mycelium in petri dishes, or test tube slants, come to an almost complete stop in growth when placed in the fridge. This is how vigorous cultures/strains of various mushrooms are stored by mycologists so that if the strain they are using starts to degenerate that they will have the original "master" strain sitting dormant, and ready to be re-activated (by being taken out of the cold climate) and used reproducing the EXACT ORIGINAL STRAIN!

Hope I have helped :smile:

Once again thanks for the good info....Hey that makes me think of another question...Camel you said that "if a strain degenerates" Do you think if I have a strain and keep producing my own spores for several years without any fancy lab work to pick strong strains etc. that my strain will degenerate and become weaker or less flushes etc.....if so that sucks! I would hope I could keep a wild strain under home cultivation forever by producing my own sporez....
