Question re: heredity
    #3212575 - 10/04/04 04:13 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

If one has a giant shroom, and takes a spore print of that shroom, does that mean that all of the offspring will be giants - or will they simply be more predisposed to being giants? (Or will that even increase the chances of getting more giants at all..?)

Very curious about this. :tongue2:

It depends on what kind of mushroom it is, if that type of mushroom is typically big, than yes it will be as big. But if its just an abnormal huge mushroom for its species the offspring shouldnt be the same size, unless you grow it just right.

May it have been the one that you are no longer aware, but now it has become a reality.

Not necessarily from a print.....using a print to start a grow would be a multispore innoc. and does not mean that you'll get the giant offspring like the printed shroom since you're not isolating one particular strain.  Now if you cloned that giant shroom with a sterile inner piece of flesh to some grain or something you'd stand a much better chance since you're working with and isolated strain. :thumbup:

Just like atomic said. Spore print is random no matter what shroom you take it from, to isolate the strain and clone you need to take a piece of the actual shroom.
