Variation of colonization speed?
    #11264303 - 10/17/09 09:23 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

This is more out of interest and curiosity than anything else, but can anyone explain why colonization varies from jar to jar? Assuming the substrate is the same in each jar, has been prepared the same way, inoculated at the same time, and conditions are all the same. There's always one jar that takes off and one jar that lags behind the rest, but why?

The only thing I can think of is one jar gets more spores and one jar gets less, but given that there are thousands of spores in a syringe I can't see that making such an obvious difference in colonization speed.

Thanks.

Genetics?

Genetics is the common answer. Until you are working with a monoculture, you'll see variances like this.

i was wondering this also. my current grow is a very big experiment including two different strains, two different vendors and two different substrates. while sum are fruiting others are only at 50% and i am talking about the same strain. its really incredible. and i am very pleased with the whole experiment. i have learned alot.

Part of it also has to do with grower experience. As you develop a more consistent technique, you'll see more consistent results.
But with spores, you'll see variance. Even with LC if it is multispore. G2G, less variance since you'll usually select donor jars that are in a similar stage of development.

Because if you're using multispore then each jar is a different strain, and they will all act differently.
