Claviceps


Hello,
Does anyone know how long this fungi can survive?
I mean usually fungi spor can survive unlimited time, no? As soon as i put the fungi in a nutritional place, it can start grow or it have limited life time?

PS to admin: I dont know if it's the right place to write my topic..

Dont ask for a source but ive read that it can be stored in the freezer for about a year before it begins to die. For cultivation the sclerotium is normally frozen to simulate winter conditions so that when it thaws, the fungi is tricked into thinking its spring and begins to sprout its stipes which then go on to release the spores.



Sufficiently advanced science is indistinguishable from madness.

Ergot and Ergotism by George Barger is on archive.org. It talks about this on page 89.
