I wouldn't be opposed to sharing a section of the print (pie slice) to someone that thinks they have a good chance at reviving stubborn spores.

If I can revive it, you will be first on the list. After that........... H3 for everyone! Well anyone that still knows what SASE means.
Hey mikey. How old is the print?

I would venture say its from 2012. I have an envelope from MaH with several that never germinated for me using traditional methods. I haven't broke out the big guns yet though. I had always chalked it up to Microtopia and TGS possibly being under the radar and the postal service what tapering with the mail in an effort to make them not viable I have been considering for years now of trying to resurrect some old spores and with winter upon us and Hip's 10 years passing that soon would be better than later. I have a print from Homestead books in 1984 that I also promised to share the genetics with the member that I acquired its from.

I have tried swiping them on agar up to six plates at a time. Not even contamination grew after a month and a half. Though other plates from the same batch of agar and different spores did fine. Same results going directly to LC with the spores from the same envelope. I will attempt to rehydrate said spores before the next attempt. I don't have any snake venom on hand, but I. do have some colchicine. It would be interesting to see if that would actually help in germination, I don't think it would keep the original phenotype though. We could cross Dixieland and Redboy again the colchicine and create H3.1 lol
