HOW TO STORE MUSHROOM SPORE SYRINGES
What is the best way to store mushroom spores?
Spore syringes can be stored at room temperature, out of direct sunlight, but they last significantly longer when placed in the refrigerator. We take great care in inspecting and packaging each individual spore syringe before shipment. Ideally, you would keep your syringe in it’s original sealed plastic bag and place in the refrigerator until you begin your research. If you are beginning your research right away (within a week or two), room temperature, out of direct sunlight, is just fine.
Can spore syringes be frozen?
Spore syringes should NOT be stored in the freezer as this will damage the syringe, making microscopy research difficult.
How long do mushroom spore syringes last?
High quality spore syringes from a reputable company can be kept in the fridge for 18-24 months. However, some researchers have stated that they have stored spore syringes for multiple years and have found them to be viable for microscopic research.
How long do liquid culture syringes last?
Our gourmet and medicinal liquid culture syringes should be kept in the refrigerator in the same manner as our Psilocybe Cubensis spore syringes, and should be used within approximately two to three months. The variables for longevity of a liquid culture syringe are highly dependent upon nutrients present in the solution. We produce our liquid culture syringes in small batches at great frequency to ensure a nutrient rich solution.
