Please excuse the incorrect terminology... I don't have a book in front of me, but do feel like I have a basic understanding of shroom sex.
My question is this... How long can monokaryote growth occur until the monocells are no longer able to mate with other monocells? Does this mating have to occur immediately after spore germanation?
The point of the question is this... If monokaryote growth can occur for some time before mating, then is all that monomyc just wasting and taking up space that could be available for diakariotic growth(ie fruiting growth)?
Hope this question makes sense...

There is no time limit for monokaryotic growth. After fusing with a compatible mycelium it becomes part of the new network, so no tissue is wasted. As nuclei are able to migrate from cell to cell, all parts of the mycelium should become dikaryotic after a while.
