9 different strains...starting multispore on agar....
    #1795486 - 08/09/03 04:03 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

OK...my friend is going to pick the hobby back up after a 1 1/2 year hiatus...he has alot of experience with bulk, but now is going to start up the agar work he never goto do. He has Sporewroks bact. grade agar agar and is going with the PDA agar...

the question is, which of these would be the best for him to start off with as a first time agar mycologist?

These are his prints

b+
hawaiian
Pan Trop
TC
Cambo
Thai Koh
A print named Med Angkor (if he remembers right this is Pan Cyan)
Puerto Rican
and PF Classic

he has retaught himself thru his old grow logs and searching posts, and is planning on getting a good isolate from multispore transfer and sectoring until he has something good to work with..then he will add strong isolate to some grain and spawn to straw/poo.

Thanks
Horseman

Doesn't really matter with which strain he starts with. IME, Pan. spores and Cubies don't have so much difference working with agar. You have to be really carefull and work really clean for both..... Later part is up to your cultivation experiences....... Good Luck!....

Thanks, he is leaning towards one of the cube species since their mycelium tends to be more ropey and whiteish in color...therefore making it easier for his 1st try.

In the book TMC, Staments brings up the point of altering the agar media to propogate the rhizomorphic sectors due to the fach that growing on the same media can can exert a selective influence on the mycelium; and that by altering the media this can promote a better survival chance for nycelium. (run on sentence?!?)

Is this just too much for a 1st time agar user to worry about? Anyone out there done this?
