Birthing multiple strains together
    #1599463 - 06/01/03 10:34 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

A friend writes that she has inadvertently mixed her Malabar cakes with her B+ and can no longer tell some of them apart. Some of them will be birthed at the same time. She's wondering if they can share a birthing chamber without problems, being different strains and all. Comments?

She also commented on how, even though she shoots five sites on each jar, usually only one site will start successfully, at least until that site has grown to touch the others, at which point colonization seems to explode around the jar.

IMO, exploding colonization is nothing to bitch about :smile: 

Sarcasm just one of my many talents.

No problem there, just birht em and watch em grow. Never even heard of a situation where birthed cakes started battling each other fiercly right to the point where several cakes started to develop nuclear wea...sorry, got carried away there I guess. Anyway, just birth the cakes, and enjoy!

Your friend can if he/she keeps them as cakes and doesn't case them.  Or if he/she does case, case each jar separately.  As long as the two myc don't touch, they won't compete.

About the colonization, is she innoculating with the needle touching the glass?  Sounds like she may be innoculating against the glass in only one place and shooting the spores directly into the verm in the other spots which is why she doesn't see myc growth at first, but "explodes" when they meet. :cool:
