In nature, there are 17 billion spores of all kinds of different shrooms flying around. As people who've been to a cow pasture will know, most patties will not have Psilocybes, they'll either have something completely different or nothing at all. But in a pasture, there's a lot of shit, and there's a lot of shrooms, so it's enough if 1/100 patties have the right kind.

Now, when you're growing them at home, if you sprinkle spores in each dish and don't give a shit about sterility, you'll have natural conditions and maybe every hundredth jar will get the right shrooms. Needless to say, this is not good, so you must push up the odds of the right shrooms growing by improving sterility.

To find a place to live between the negatives and positives.

In nature, the contams a shroom is going to meet are part of its natural eco-system. But in your house, there are all sorts of wierd and wonderful contams that shrooms have not built up natural defences against.

Its like War of the Worlds. Wasn't it bacteria that killed the Martians, bacteria they'de never encountered before?

Take in mind that what HolyDiver said about 17 billion spores.
It's just coincidence wich strain to grow out, survival of the fittest (spores).
