What dictates the 'relative' potency of the mushrooms?
Let me rephrase for him:
You have some cakes (brown rice + verm, a bit of worm castings); you spawn some straw. Where is the main source of nutrients?
Would one loose potency if they were to do a straw-to-straw spawn, (to bypass the 20 day interim of jar-colonisation), / do the caraphores develop most exlucisly from the parts of the crumbled/ground cake material (that is spawned the casing within)?
Sorry I can't be clearer, but hopefully you can understand what I am trying to get at: the source of potency.
(you see, my friend has some mushrooms that he's been growing and 1.1 grams dried of his stuff makes his girlfriend trip (not hard, but gets her there) and other people who've sampled that batch of shrooms say they were immediatly great)--he'd like to grow some more, more quickly than having to wait (he doesn't mind and he is going to colonise more jars anyways) and wanted to know the source-sink relationships of what I tried to describe above so that he could make sure his shrooms wouldn't seriousily 'degrage' by doing a straw-to-straw spawn for some new casings.)
thanks for everything you've posted already; vladimir
no degradation would occur. be careful not to contam the straw though... this is if im understanding you correctly... the source of potency is within the genes of the organism, and available nutreint amounts within the substrate.

He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
