Honey Water/Mixing various B+
    #552075 - 02/15/02 02:33 AM (15 years, 1 month ago)

I recently ran out of agar, and recently harvested some huge B+. So i wanted to clone the largest one but had no agar to work So this is what i did: I have some Honey Water (mycelium water) in a 1/2 pint jar in my incubater colonizing with another source of B+ from a Agar wedge. I thought i could just use some flesh of the cap and inoculate the honey water with, since they are both B+, but both from different sources, this is not mixing strains so therfore they will not compete right? My question is that simple.... can one mix two different B+ strains from 2 different sources? Will they just combine and make one or will this not work? I had no choice. And do bigger prints from biggest mushrooms have just as strong genetics as a clone would? Cloning must be better i assume?

Wrong. Each strain resulting from each 2 spores is its own strain.

>can one mix two different B+ strains from 2 different sources?
One can.

>Will they just combine and make one or will this not work?
They should combine, in other words the dominant mycelium should overtake the mycelium network of the inferior one and use it as if it?s its own.

A print an produce literally milions of different strains. A clone is exactly one strain.
Cloning is better in this case because you already have a strain that is capable of fruiting and producing on your substrate. And this is what you want. If you were to be searching for the most yielding and fastest growing strain, then you would have to isolate many, many strains froma multispore germiantion and run fruiting trials on them. A lot of work.

Once you have a mushroom you have had a dikariotic mycellium for a while. Spores geminate monokariotic and mate + to - mating types to dikariotic mycellium.
Once the geneotype is complete it no longer mates.

Hope thats complete,helpful and correct...
