how many generations of sporeprints can you/should you take from your batches of shrooms without causing detrimental effects to the genetics and/ potency?

In all seriousness, the issue of senescense comes more strongly into play only when the same substrate is used time and time again.

As Stamets says (paraphrased without taking out the book) The mycelium's will is to evolve, and continuously produce different enzymes that decompose whatever they're growing on. By putting crop from the same spores onto the same substrate over time, it compromises the mushroom's abilty to selectively adapt--thus weakening it. To the mushroom enthusiast, this would mean a weaker, smaller fruit of less mass, and perhaps potency.

If you're gonna take a print, and grow it, then take a print, and grow it again. ..over and over. . .just try to grow it on different substrates.

The analogy of a tree in a breeze comes to mind. If you grew two palm trees, one on a windy beach and one in the suburbs, the one on the beach would be stronger, and more apt to last on the evolutionary scale.

Hope this helps.

i understand what you are saying lee but how many generations would need to pass before any real noticeable differences :wink: i thought that was the whole point of multi-spore innoculation... bio-diversity... hehe good ol PF
