Has anybody grown tree ferns from spores? Is it possible that the spores are still good after being in sealed plastic containers for the last four years?

I ordered some spores in February from rps: Blechnum cycadifolium, Cyathea dregei, and Cyathea sp. 'Tiny Top'. I put ground coco fiber(reptile bedding) in small plastic deli cups. Then I spread the spore on the surface and ceram wrapped the cups. Oh and I moistened the medium. I put the cups in my terrarium, which is lighted for maybe 14 hours a day and is hydrated with a fog machine several times weekly. The dregei spores have tiny mossy growths around them; I just saw them today. No action from the other two. Except for a couple spots of mold in the cycadifolium cup.
