I'm waiting spores from Ryche to.... :eek:
I know that a solution 10%/90% glycerol/water can stores the spores at very low temps for years..but i don't know if Ryche use some storing agent in his syringes..

I wouldn't worry TOO much about freezing. Unless they're going to be frozen for LONG periods of time (weeks? months?) I don't think that there would be too much of a problem. Especially since IF they do freeze they wouldn't be frozen for longer than a day or two (unless you let your packages just sit outside...)

Spores consist of an outer husk, a tiny amount of oil, and a package of DNA. They can survive in the absolute vacuum and hard radiation of interstellar space. Cooking will kill them, but overall, they're pretty resilient.

There was an experiment done in the 1930s where spores were frozen in liquid nitrogen, then every so often, a bunch were defrosted and germinated. Fine crop, every time.

If they can take liquid nitrogen for thirty years, you needn't worry about it being a bit chilly...

A few months ago my girlfriend thought the milk was going bad to often and cranked the cold up on the fridge, freezing everything including all my spores. They were frozen solid inside the syringe. I happy to report that it appears not to have affected them at all. So nope, no need to worry.

Good info there. Maybe a tougher question: would freezing spores be better for long-term storage than just putting them in the refrigerator?

I know its not ideal, but if someone had some extra syringes and couldn't use them so fast, just curious..
