Domesication Question
    #584066 - 03/20/02 10:53 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Ive seen, in my readings here, that a lot of people refer to strains as more 'wild' or 'domesticated'. I understand that, essentially, this means that the strain is more easily grown in the conditions that we use here as opposed to the conditions in nature.

My question(s) is this: what more presicely does this do to the aspects of growth of the strain (like colonization speed, fruit size ect...)? and how does one go about domesticating a strain?

Would growing a batch of that strain, choosing the biggest and best fruit, making a sporeprint and repeating the process with the newly aquired spores be a method of domestication, if it is repeated numerous times? What other methods do people use?

A domesticated strain is one that has been nurtured into growing well in artificial (indoors, outdoor bed, etc) conditions.

The basic idea behind domestication is the use of selective breeding over several generations. You grow out a multispore innoculation and you save spores from the fruits that behaved the closest to the traits you seek. Repeat the process with the spores you saved. The more generations you repeat this for, and the better you are at selecting fruit with the traits you seek, the more stable the strain becomes.

About how many generations does it take to get a strain to be considered domesticated?
