Im going to try this with Melmak thick penis x Nutcracker (TAT) tonight homebooooy since you have crossed every fucking strain in the world already lmao

I’m about to have more room so it’s down to what my significant other says about having a Martha in the house.
If you need me to talk to them, I'd be happy to be your advocate. I could explain how Mycotopia....nay, the entire OMC would benefit from you growing pans!

Some comparison pics:
PE/apeu tester. Straight Apeu
Is it a cross? :shrug: me thinks so but F2 should be interesting
Pea+ f4 tester jars.. definitely a few light colored pins in there but looks like I’m narrowing down the gene pool... I used a lot of spores for these.. same with the PE/pfrs f2 jars below. They’re slow growin.. usually means potent fruits so that’s cool
PE/pfrs f2 testers.. just starting to knot decently.. probably gonna add a thin cv layer in a day or so when I see the first pins.. REALLY hoping I see both purple and red spored fruits from these jars.. the spores used were purple
Almost done! Definitely bittersweet

I just re-read the original method and you are "double swabbing" each individual swab. I only have a couple vendor swabs of these strains so that would not be your tek but I don't see why the spores solution wouldn't be intermixed either way. I'll give it a shot anyway.
also is it that you need to take these crosses to f2+ to see the traits?

Yeah the F2 will/should have fruits that express traits of both varieties you swabbed.. PE/aa+ F2 bins/bags for example:
See how there’s AA+ and PE blended fruits.. the pheno I picked to take to the f3 was the big one in the middle of this f3 bag...
then just keep picking that pheno every time to go to the next gen and by f7 or f8, you should have a tub full of just that pheno and it’s stable

that's quite a haul from 2 cakes for sure. What size are they they looks tall but thin. Jelly jars or summin? Or just half pint reg mouths.

PE/pesa second flush cake.. looks like there’s lipstick mold going on all over the cake.. really just took these to another flush to see if anything different popped out.. looking like pesa.. but at the same time, I’m having a hard time thinking only pesa took over the whole cake.. there was about the same amount of spores from both varieties on the swabs.. these are gonna be a tough one
Here’s first flush again

Took those 4 cv 1/2 pint pea+ f4 and dunked them.. I have a feeling they’re not going to pin from the top again, so threw 2 of them into quart jars with a sandwich baggie with needle holes poked in it to give them more room on the sides... I call it the “fack it” tek lol
It actually works surprisingly well (at least the one other time I’ve done it)
Could probably also just throw them in a gallon ziplock with holes and get similar results.. however you want to “fack it”, it’ll probably work lol

I don’t even necessarily want a print (I’d rather do a larger F2 grow later on—I’ve got the f1 print jarred up)... I just want to know if I have a hybrid. Show me the goods DAMN YOU! lol
There’s already a bunch of variance in pin/cap shapes... that tall one is a pretty unusual pin.. super lanky with a really round cap lol

They all have the PE stem bumps and took forever (made the jars 4/15)
Here’s straight pfrs
I think they’re a hybrid but I won’t be satisfied until I see some red spores.. that’s the whole goal after all. Could also be that pfrs just isn’t the variety that’s gonna give me the white whale that is a red spore PE... I still have suspected hybrids of PE/RW and PE/crs that I honestly would like more.. they’ve give larger fruits and that’s more preferable than a bunch of small fruits that these ^^^ are giving me.

Even if this is just PE, the fact that it isn’t blobbing without a casing could be something that I can isolate. Iso out the blob. That’d be cool.. again, I still think it’s a hybrid but I’m keeping an open mind to other possibilities. This is why using a leucistic as one of the varieties is helpful.. F2 is easier to distinguish

Not much difference with the PE/pfrs jar.. definitely PE genes.. caps aren’t gonna open up anymore and they’re solid
One of the fack it jars fruited mainly from the bottom cake.. I should’ve just covered it with press n seal and added the baggie after they needed room. Just ditched the other jars’ subs.. oh well. Fack it!
Tore everything down (man does that feel good). Twas a good season! Already looking forward to October! Pea+ will get finished and hopefully I’ll get a good head start on the other stablizations.
