I think its time to order more syringes.
Thinking about growin again and wondered if ten year old syringes would work. I think the odds are about 50,,,50. What do u think?

However if they are contaminated then your efforts and substrate are wasted.
If you are low on funds go then you lose nothing by trying them, otherwise it's time for new syringes.

With prices like that is really worth wasting 2 weeks if they are dead. This question was asked before and a sponsor said "2 years if refrigerated", I think. 10 years even they were refrigerated (which I bet they weren't) seems too long to take a chance IMHO.

Hey now, dont NOT use them hahaha. Its always good to try, even if you have a good chance to fail. I knew my syringes were dead, but turns out i got one still kicking haha. Plus that would be a cool grow log, bringing back ten year old genetics.
Could work. Doesntt hurt to try

10 years old, you know how awesome it would be to get those to work.
Strains have most likely changed a lot over the years(I don't know, haven't been growing that long).
There is no harm in just trying one or 2 jars. (besides a little spawn)

I like TM but he wasn't the smartest of people.
He said spores can survive space travel, and to have come from another celestial body it would have to have taken tens of thousands of years if his theory is correct.
There is no way spores would survive all that radiation and radical temperatures.

Interesting, didn't know that.
SG-30 is from a 30 year old print of SG ( Star Gazers) but that was a dry print, not spores submerged in water. I'm sure that there is a difference.
Does Mycrotopia have SG-30?

No doubt! You've got volunteers out here, I am QUITE sure! :D:headbang::amazed:
OP: If you're not going to experiment, would you be willing to let someone else try and get them going?
