A long time ago I was a party to a convo about creating new strains of edibles via hyphal mating Most of the discussion was way over my head and still is, but the tek was ghetto and the results potentially identifiable without much equipment, no sequencing etc The tek was to culture two separate species on individual plates, each containing the same media Subculture two small sections of each species about 2cm apart onto a single plate Where they joined up, wait for sectoring to occur, and subculture each sector Fruit, and check results for morphological or environmentally distinct growing patterns Anyone done this? How viable a tek does it sound? How genetically distinct can the species be, for example a Pleurotus x Lion's Mane- would they be too far apart to hybridise? It sounds like fun, and easily quantifiable for macro level results ( ie, I'm not lookin for tiny changes, measurable only by sequencing, I'm looking for variations in fruiting shape ).
