Newbie grower question
    #1954384 - 09/26/03 02:51 PM (13 years, 28 days ago)

What's the least likely to be contaminated spore strain? Hawk's Eye says the Thailand ones are pretty contaminant resistant.
Also, what strains are good with fluctuating temperatures?

There is no strain that hold off contams better than another.
However, people will probably tell you they have had better luck with a particular strain.
It is a all subjective information.

First, keep in mind that all famous strains are still the same species: psilocybe cubensis. So don't expect vast differences between strains.

Then, it's usually not the mushrooms or the mycelium (or even the spores) that get contaminated, but the substrate you use to grow them shroomies on. So to reduce the chance of contams, finetune your sterilisation skills. Picking a particular strain won't really make much of a difference.

But to answer your question, or, I should say: "now I'm going to give an answer that you _do_ want to hear" :smile: Creepers appears to be a pretty aggressive strain, maybe a bit better in fighting off contams than other strains. But again: your cultivation skills are most important.
