Ok, besides knowing a strain's speed of colonization, is there anything else you can find out my germinating spores on agar? For example: whether or not it's going to fruit, potency, etc.? My FOAF is new to agar and the such and would like to research it a little before he spends money/time. Thanks.
If you leave it on agar long enough it will probably pin, depending on the strains tolerance to high co2. With agar you are really just trying to get a good rhizomorphic strain free of contaminants. Then you would inoculate your substrates for fruiting.
one of the main benefits of agar is to gat a rhizomorphic(strandy) culture growing. this is accompplished by isolating a small piece of the dish and transferring it to a new fresh(agar) dish where it becomes more ropey, and then to grain spawn to create your "masters"
