choose your clone carefully

I picked my specimine, used a hand blender to puree the sucka in 30 mils sterile ozone, reverse ozmosis bottled water and and sucked up it up into a 30ml syringe.
Did up a couple of jars and spawned to the following recipe:
4 parts verm
1 part compost (non sterile)
1 part steer manure
2 parts water

6 jars with 30 mils of LC colonized in 2 1/2 weeks which isn't bad but I was hoping for better. I guess the pureeing set the mycelium back quite a bit.
The next shot is of the colonizing after spawning. Only THREE days. Very impressed. Here's a close up of how vigerous the mycelium is.
Early pinning by day seven (from time of spawning). Am very encouraged.
After this things go sideways.

I spawned at a ratio of 3 to 1 so there was about 15 jars of substrate in there ( I kept one as a cake) so I should have more than 15 PF jars of yield on this.
I got exactly ONE shroom. All the rest of the pins (not that there were a lot) aborted!!!! :evil: :evil: :evil:
The second flush was better but I only got THREE pins to complete!!!!:eusa_doh: :eusa_doh:

Sooooo, when picking a specimin it is important to not just pick the biggest mutha but to make sure that the cake it comes from has ALL the characteristics you are looking for:
I'm trying bulk growing again but this time with multispore. I want to see a big yield before I go back into cloning again.
Best of luck!

So here i am on my 2nd flush, i had one huge 4.5oz cluster (wet) with 11 boomers on it.... woulud this be a good clone? its the biggest one of the 11 cluster, its part of a cluster, and it grew very fast.
Now im thinking, the best cloners would be a shoorm that has traits for; cluster, large fruit, fast growing.
Thanks for this informative post chill :headbang:

I will fruit out each isolate and choose the best of the three to retain. Since I will have the corresponding isolate already growing in liquid culture, it should be no problem to continue to propegate from there.
I am using Maz spores so I suspect that I should get 1 out of the three to perform well.
Just a thought of how I'm going to do it.

How does an infection occur and what can be done to prevent it from happening again?
Also, what shows that it is wet? Again, not familiar with that.
I will say that it put out a lot of piss. I had to drain it off every other day. Is this a sign of anything?

if there is ALOT OF PISS then there may be a bacterial infuction
what causes an infection indeed!
..... my guess is water... doesnt the moisture level.. (i.e 12% for cracked corn) have a key part
and i think wheat berries come in at 30%

last nyt but i was kinda blitz'd...
Anyhoo ,i think you have a hitch
hiker that proly originated in the blender
A couple of caps have brown sunken areas
which could either be Bacteria or Trich - depending on
whether they are wet or dry..
Apparently Trich can piggy back on mycelium
for a long time without ever blooming into
a sea of green..The effect is more to parasitize
the fruit and reduce pinset...
I've had it on a few grows with quite variable results.

I was thinking the brown spots on the cap were from water damage. I don't use a drip shield and the condensation was dripping onto the casing.
Posted 18 March 2007 - 05:57 PM
the other symptoms of the casing are considered ,it kinda sways me to think it's a systemic problem...
Bacterial blotches are normally wet/slimy even after the droplet has evapourated...
