Does size matter when printing?
    #1901392 - 09/10/03 09:38 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Greetings all,

I would like to know what people think of the addage that one should take prints from their strongest of mushrooms (generally what we might call the largest). Do you think there is much credence to this theory?.

Can spores carry inferior genetic traits from smaller shrooms? I mean technically these smaller shrooms probably contain more psilocybin per weight due to the levelling off. Has anyone had any experience with this?

The spores cary the information of their parents so if you want big mushrooms take prints from big mushrooms and if you want small mushrooms with higher psilocybin content take prints from them.  :cool:

but then again, spores are each unique not guaranteeing that each and every one of those spores coming from a small mushroom will produce a small mushroom. Big mushrooms will only offer you bigger prints with more variety, clone a big mushroom if you want to grow out big mushrooms.

Excatly. You can only say that it's more likely that big mushrooms will grow from spore prints taken from big mushrooms.

I read a tech recently called "sectoring". It's in the mycelium culture/agar section. It deals w/using agar filled petri dishes to culture mycelium and then re-culturing only the most vigorous, rhizomorphic sections multiple times until a "pure" strain is achieved. Then you can grow out your mycelium and take multiple spore prints and start all over again and once you find your "super-strain", the one that grows the fastest, has more rhizomorphic properties and that is consistent, you can grow it forever!

Sectoring isn't too bad but it takes some know-how in microbiology like preparing and setting an agar mixture and proper inoculation techniques with a fairly sterile environment. Take a microbiology class at a college, you'll learn alot about inoculation and how shroom's really grow, plus learning is fun  :loveeyes:. mmmm doughnuts  :print: :print: :print: :print: :print:
