I have a no pour jar that contains a beautiful clone culture but I just have no desire to grow that particular culture out any time soon. There is plenty of agar and it’s fully colonized at this point. Is it as simple as just putting it in the refrigerator to store or should I do something more?

The culture will last about 6 months on agar.

You'll need to make periodic transfers onto fresh agar about every 6 months unless you use other methods such as mineral oil and freezing.
