Damn right PJ lol!
I have a question for anyone following, I want to make an LC for each of my strains, but I want to make it from selected genetics so that when I noc up some grain, it grows out predictably and favorably, with large pinsets, fruits in huge clusters.
I know I can get that by cloning the best fruits and growing it out on agar(to outrun any contams) and making the LC from that, or I could isolate and grow out genetic strains from agar plates(which I am doing for practice, but haven't gotten an isolate yet), so my question is, which is a better route to take to get what I am after, those tubs/trays of flushes that look like there is no more room to squeeze even one more mushroom into the canopy, which is flat because all the fruits are the same hieght, and all huge, like I see in the myco-porn I see on these forums?
Is it better to fruit all my single-sector isolates from agar to test them(when I get them isolated), and make my LC out of the best fruiting plates(and make master slants), or is it better to get those nice flushes by cloning the best fruits from the best flushes/clusters, make sure it's clean on agar, then make the LC from that?
I have some agar dishes that I made some transfers from(for practice) that will probably be single-sectors in a couple transfers, I just have trouble seeing the sectors because I used tupperware, if it was petris, it would be so much easier to see, I've seen posts(on shroomery) of guys with pics they claiming are monocultures, and are clearly still multiple sectors still in the plate.
Is it correct that if I clone a fruit it would be grow on agar as a monoculture? And what would be the diff, or is an isolated single genetic sector just like having a cloned strain, just un-tested, and might not even fruit? Thanks, I'm learning, that's the reason I want monoculture, just to say I can and have done it, and for those bad ass flushes.
