Staining for spores

I have been trying to use the Schaeffer Fulton method for staining for
spores.  This uses malachite green and safranin O solutions to stain
spores green and vegetative cells red. Unfortunately I'm having some
difficulties. I was wondering if anyone could tell me whether my problem
could be that I'm using malachite green hydrochloride rather than the
oxalate salt?

Thank you for your help,
Lisa Oppenheim.
