Ensuring that the organism has enough food and moisture are the most important factors to consider in the short term. Longer life spans are achieved by ensuring the culture does not become infected. Slowing the culture’s metabolic rate through refrigeration can keep the organism in “stasis” for a number of weeks. If a proper cycle of preparing sclerotium and regular replenishment of cultures (ca. monthly) is maintained, cultures can theoretically last decades. I have kept my own personal culture alive since 2013 and prior to my inheriting it, it had been stored as sclerotium for nearly a decade.

You could encourage to form sclerotic by growing on damp tissue and then dry out slowly in dark.
