mixed strain casing
    #4217994 - 05/25/05 12:07 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I have a couple of cakes that are having fruiting problems. My casing are doing awesome so i want to case these cakes. Is it ok to mix strains in casings. I know i have some EQ cakes and some GT and even some BM i think. I dunno... they are all different though. Is it safe to case them as one?

No its not. Keep them seperate. If you MUST case them together...dont MIX them...put one jar on one side of the container, and another jar on the other side..then youd have half of each casing fruiting a different strain most likly. Although one might take over the other.

Two different strains will battle for substrate correct? I heard it wasn't wise to mix different strains because one will eventually die. Is this right?

Depends on how you mix them. If you take 2 fully colonized jars and mix them together, one might kill off the other..or they might just solidify into many many tiny broken up networks pressed into one. The mycelium will form with eachother, but wont grow together and create a network from which to produce fruit bodies. You could end up with very very small shrooms, of both strains everywhere, or the other could kill out the other.

you'd be o.k. if you used a jar of spawn from a multi-spore and one from an isolate of the same strain, right?

OK, yes. Defeating the purpose of the isolate though and youd be better keeping them seperate still, probably. It would be a fun experiment to keep some seperate, and mix some..if you had the means.
