fungal darwinism

let's suppose i start from a spore syringe i buy from a vendor.
i do my cycle, i take my prints and start another cycle.
suppose that i start the new cycle using the spores of the best mushroom i got from my first cycle, and do the same for all the following cycles.
that is, instead of using always my first syringe, i always make a new one with the spores of the best shrooom i got from my cultivation.
let's also suppose i never change or improve my set up.
after N cycles i'll have a strain that suits perfectly to my set up, if my set up is a little too cold or dry i'll get a cold o dry resistant strain, if i have problems with some kind of contamination, i'll get a strain that wins over that particular contamination etc...
in theory, instead of experiementing new strains and cultivation methods to optimize his crops, one could keep strain and method constant, and genetically optimize the strain!
am i right? please tell me if i'm talking bullshit and how many cycles would it take to see the first advantages

Sounds interesting. I have no clue whether it would work or not, but I'd like to know as well.

I've heard of vendors getting strains to grow on subs that they normally dont do to well on, and the mushies adapted. Some people like myself have contam probs...Well i've been trying to get my cr. myc. to fight off green mold....They're getting stronger, I know have a cake fighting off green mold and cobbwebb....it's in about 60-70F conditions so it's rather slow, but it's strong, I've noticed that every time I make prints from the same yield they get better eating away at the green mold and cobbwebb...But it may just be this one jar...Ima in the middle of testing it out...If this jar survives and fights it off, i'll make a print and then knock up a jar and then introduce green mold. I want to get to the point where I can have my spores germ. while green mold tried to take over but i doubt that will work....But ill know in the months to come. Perhaps i'll post and make a thread when it's done. Gl on ur tests/experiments
