Tissue propagation VS spores?
    #2565825 - 04/15/04 10:48 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

What is the most recommended way to grow, Tissue propagation or with spores?

It depends on what you're trying to do, and what the source/age/condition of the tissue sample is. Spores provide a rebirth of genetics, which may be good if a tissue sample is old. Spores might be a step backward if you have a vigorous isolate or clone.
Since this is in the gourmet forum, are you considering something like
1. Cloning a store mushroom
or
2. Taking spores from a store mushroom
?

People seem to be having a relatively easy time getting decent clones from store mushrooms, and the general thought seems to be that they *should* fruit fine. Don't take that as truth, there was a heavy rumor? going around that the commercial interests made their fruits 'poor cloners'. I personally don't think it's true.

I guess what I'm wondering is what would be the least labour intensive/practical method for propagation...considering I have viable tissue/spores

Cloning would save you a couple of weeks. It would also give you higher yields.
