Looking for good shiitake strain...
    #6018273 - 09/01/06 01:59 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I am looking for a good fruiting shiitake strain. The one I have now I recieved from spore works and it tends to produce deformed mushrooms on the first flush (nothing against spore works, all my other cultures from them work well). I can offer strains of blue oyster, paddy straw, lentinus ponderosus, lions mane, or wine cap.

Make a clone from shiitake out of the shops.

Cloned grocery store mushrooms are usually very poor performers. The commercial growers expand the mycelium to the point of senescense prior to fruiting. If you clone it, you get a run out strain. Out of twenty or so store bought mushrooms I've cloned, I have only one halfway decent fruiter.

Has anyone else noticed that it is dificult to get a decent spore print out of mushrooms that have been refrigerated? If you were to get a good spore print out of store bought mushrooms and were able to germinate them and isolate a strain would it carry over any of the senescense or would it be geneticaly pure?

No senescense from prints. You would be starting fresh cell lines. I've gotten really good prints from storebought portabellos.

If it is a good proven fruiting strain than deal. Oh yeah and how long does it normally take to begin fruiting?

The strain came from multispore of a store bought specimen. Then the clone was selected from that. It took around 3 weeks to colonize the substrate and another 6-8 weeks for harvest. Fruiting temps were in the 65 degree range.
