I have read somewhere online that strains that exibit rhizomrphic growth also have better fruiting characteristics. I have noticed that from a strain that grows very fluffy on a PF cake can be transfered (live tissue inoculation) to a wholegrain rice cake and grow Krazy arial and rhizomorphic mycellium on the rice cake. Also I had whole grain rice jars that had cottony growth.
1. I was wondering weather or not that is true that rhizomorphic growth fruits better?
2. And also if maybe i just isolated different strains off the same PF cake?
ALso in addition I have 5 birdseed jars that i innoculated with spores. 4 of the jars were left alone and 1 I shook. 2 weeks after innoculation and the sheke jar is fully colonized and the 4 others are still colonizing but growing rhizomorphic eluvials from each innoculation point. It may be important that the spores used were at least two months old from PF and stored at room temp.
1.The most rhizomorphic growth isn't necessarily the best fruiter, but has a good chance of being one. Strains that grow fluffy can differentiate into rhizomorphic growth. In fact, from a multi-spore germination, the most rhizomorphic mycelium on agar doesn't necessarily have the greatest potential to be the most rhizomorphic when growing as spawn or through a casing. The environment has a large effect on how well a strain is able to fruit.
The best method of obtaining the best strain is to create several isolates, fruit them all under the same exact conditions, and see which one produces the largest/fattest flush. Clone that shit, and you have a good strain.
2. I don't really understand your question, but you have several different strains present in a pf cake that has been innoculated with spores.
I did indeed inoculated the PF cake with spores but when i took pieces off the cake and droped them into rice cake jars some of them exibited cottony growth and some rhizomorphic growth.
*Are thes examples of different strains or just the growing conditions?
All rice cakes were prepared similar but a few different water formulations and two different sterilization times between 12 jars. this could effect water comtent.
