Succesive generations
    #1214704 - 01/13/03 02:38 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Im just wondering what happens if i have a syringe and i grow out some mushrooms,  then take prints from them and do it all over again.  Can this be done forever? howmay generations? what are the effects on the shrooms?
:confused: :confused: :confused:

are you shootin for a hybrid? from what i understand it wont happen. but to answer your question, yes you can still grow from the same spores.

Indefinately?! Doesn't the mycelium loose vigour after doing this a few times???

No, how do you think it happens in nature?

I guess i though there were many factors outside that would influence the spores and how well they mature. Not to mention othe spores and molds to compete with...

You can do this indefinitely. You will eventually (probably inadvertently) end up with some genetic selection if you continually print specimines that feature a certain characteristic (tall, fat stem, etc.). The only time you have to worry about genetic degradation is in cloning, and then after several generations.

I doubt it. In nature the same mycelial network lives for years and years. An indoor grow? About 2 months.

Ahhh, i see!! I must have confused cloning generations with spore generations. Why cant you clone indefinately? And also what the deal with wild prints and domesticating them? Is this just to develop thier "unique characteristics"? If i find a shroom in the wild is it a new strain?

Clone indefinately, but weaker........ weaker in what ways?  potency? size? growth? :confused:

sorry successive cloned will be weaker all around. size, potency, probably even the ability to fight off contams.

Someone told me that isolates perform alot better than spores. Is an isolate just the first generation of a cloned specimen?

I know for sure that it colonizes much better. Maybe they meant that.

An isolate is either a pure substrain isolated from a multispore innoculation on agar, or a Cloned mushroom.

Isolates tend to perform better because it is a single mycelium that makes up the entire colony. If this clone is known to produce good on a certain substrate in a certain environment, having an entire tray or cake of this substrain will produce more uniformly and consistant within these known parameters. All stages of the growth cycle can be timed. You know how long it will take to colonize a petri, a jar of substrate, a tray of substrate. How long it will take to pin from casing, how long to mature to spore drop.

With Isolates you are working with KNOWN producers.


Mycelium grows cell by cell. Each new cell that is produced has to undergo nuclear mitosis TWICE, in a very coordinated way. OVER TIME, this leads to mutations. The more you transfer a single culture to new plates, the more time it has to mutate into something different then what you started with. Continued Transfers of Clones over and over and over and over will eventually ruin your isolate.

If starting from spores each time. Degeneration of the strain is highly unlikely. Every time you go back to multispore you roll the dice again.

Easiest thing to do is just shoot up jars with spores and clone the most succesful fruits. Use these clones to make up more jars. When you start to notice degeneration of your clones, multispore again.

Personal prefrence is to multispore agar. Fruit several pure substrains that are isolated from the multispore. Clone the best. Use these until they don't perform up to your standards. Then go back to multispore and isolate more clones.

Alot of people just multispore jars everytime. It really is just a personal prefrence.

If you go back to spores each time, you really shouldn't run into problems of degeneration within your life time. OVER TIME your Strain might develope a prefrence for the environment you grow in. It might not perform as well outside that environment, but it should still perform. Every Strain has SHITLOADS of substrains.

Disease resistance will never be up to par over time if growing artificially indoors. The object of indoor culture is to EXCLUDE pathogens and competitors, so you are selecting against DISEASE RESISTANCE, not for it.

I have seen NO information related to selection of specific traits for Cubensis.

Yes, thank you Teonan!  Very informative. :smile:

I dont have agar, but if i were to take a piece of a mushroom cap (inner tissue) and put it in honey water and let it grow out, is this effectively creating an isolate?
