Different strains
    #4063329 - 04/16/05 09:14 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Hey all, I picked up some spore syringes today, some B+ and Amazonian spores. I wanted to try a few just to compare them, I've only ever used Amazonian spores. Just wondering if there are others I should try out as well.

My experience is almost exclusively with sinsemilla growing, and strain selection makes a huge difference in the way you grow the plant, the yield, the environmental tolerances, the potency, mold resistance, etc. I've read that strain selection is not as critical a factor in shroom growing, would most of you agree?

mostly but not entirely, some strains seem to be faster colonizers, some more resistant or sensitive to contamination, some are prolific fruiters and others
like a warmer fruiting climate, each also seems to have differing effect and
potency can vary within the same flush (harvest)

Isolate vigor is more important than actual strain overall.  Buying from a vendor you're pretty much at the mercy of how much isolation work they put into their strains, unless you do your own agar work.  It's interesting to watch each strain and see how it performs for you.  They are all the same, but very different at the same time. :mushroom2:

I've been doing agar work since I first started growing 8 months ago and I've managed to isolate an extremely fast sub-strain of Amazonian. I started off inoculating 20 petris with one syringe and went from there. I usually get complete permeation of rye in under a week at 85-86F. The problem is that contams show up just before I'm ready to case, every time. And it's always lipstick mold, I haven't once had another mold.

For me, everything goes to hell when I try and grow out on rye. Because I'm using agar wedges to inoculate the jars, I now realize that I can't do the inoculations in the open air, at least not in my house! I'm building a glovebox and hopefully I'll be all set.
