Spent a whole day at a new park hiking about 20 miles. About 10 miles in I came to a beautiful lake and there I took about 2.5 - 3 grams of cubes grown on a teff flour cake which I mentioned in another thread.

Aside: this was an experiment using teff flour which is a highly potent food source which makes the mycelium grow so slowly that most of the cakes go bad before fruiting occurs.

However the potency is off the charts. This was more like a 5 or 6 gram dose experientially.

Here is what I managed to write in my notebook before I couldn't write anymore.

"I sit aside a small lake basin between several small peaks.

I watch the trees swaying in the breeze and I can see the smog of pollen being released.

The trees are swaying in the pure joy of their month long, yearly orgasm.

I see the ghosts of trees past swaying with them, ancient trees, singing.

They bid me to take of my shoes and stand barefoot in the lake, so their roots can touch mine, and I do.

'It's been so long since we have seen you!' I ask how long? With a smile, as I know years to us are but days to them.

I shout 'it's only been a few days!'

'Yes', they reply, but of your kind few ever visit us anymore. But you do, for you have always been one of us'"

So that is all I wrote, yet I spent three hours sitting and meditating by that lake in one of the strongest trips I have ever had.

That was yesterday and I'm still trying to process all this.

Have you tried diluting the teff with BRF to increase colonization speed?

Indeed, but I had the same weird reaction. First experiment was half and half, the second was about 1/6 teff, 5/6 brf.

What happens is the mycelium covered the entire cake on the outside making it look like it was fully colonized. But when I broke some open, the inside was not!

Another oddity was flat, paper like growths of mycelium so dense you can't see the individual strands unless you use a magnifying lens. This stuff would coat the container. Yet very thin (like wet paper)

Weird!

Yet the few fruits I got were so strong, that I decided to use them to colonize popcorn and see how that goes.

Just make sure you tell us how it goes. Maybe you've got what's described as "Good Genes"...

Well I got three monotubs that I put the colonized popcorn in (two jars went bad with trich) - and 1 week later I have pins just popping up today!  I did a basic coir/verm/gypsum sub using Turkey Ranch's method.

I would definitely save those genetics. I don't genetics is the only answer though. I'm looking at it this way, if it was only genetics, there would be a lot more super potent strains by now, but overall potency seems pretty much the same as it has been for 20 years.

Well, I did, they are currently in three mono tubs right now, and I hope to do some prints.

And I will gladly trade or send out some of those to interested parties when I have them.

I'm wondering if the small flush has a clue to the potency. Maybe something was just the right stressor to kick it into overdrive?

Well, hopefully the next batch will prove that the genetics transferred... or not.

I don't know if it means anything, but through the years I've noticed mentioned very slow to colonize grows that produced a few large, very potent fruits.
One I saw today, one large first fruit, 40 grams wet, but get this, the spawn had seemingly never colonized, sat around for a year, then boom colonized, and ready to go. I'm curious if this actually did colonize, along with some contamination and there's basically been a battle for the spawn going on that the cubes ultimately won.
