started growing about a month ago, and when the first set was ready to go to fruiting I cloned two jars using karo-tek. I used the fastest jar to colonize and one other that was basically picked randomly... both jars were filled with a dilution and allowed to soak/grow into the solution overnight.
The good jar soaked up a bit more than the other, and it also was the one that I really wanted to clone... so the only thing that I did differently was I diluted the solution with 10cc's of sterile water before I sucked anything out, versus the other jar I just sucked up what I could get.
All of the cloned innoculant was used on prepared white millet 1/2 pinters. all the jars are incubating in the same place, and each jar recieved 1 cc and was promptly shaken.
I also innoculated 6 koh samui jars on the same go round.
and guess what - Z-2-A (the fast jar clones) and the KS spore jars are both doing well, with the Z2A in the lead... the funny thing is that the Z-2-B (random jar clones) are COMPLETELY unimpressive... after six days I had a maximum of a 7mm diameter growth on the bottom of a few jars... both the Z2A's and the KS jars have growth of at least 10%, often more like 20.
so anyway, what on earth would make a cloned jar do WORSE than spores?
I mean, after all, Z strain is supposed to be noted for its aggressive growth... =) I'm kindof unimpressed!
