Mother Nature getting in on your PE/PFRS hybrids Faht, with some spent subs that I tossed in the grass. One of them has about 12 nice pins on the underside.

Life can be cruel little mushies! Now they are dry. :)

Those APEU crosses are beautiful, that clone tub should be incredible!
The CRS cakes are crazy!

Here is PE/PFRS bag 5 of 6, a T-2. I'm excited, this time, I actually caught it before the sporgasm.

Bag 2 is pinning on its 2nd flush, bag 6 is knotting for it's 1st and I restarted some APEU hybrid spores.

Swabbing those for sure.. now if they have rusty spores, that’d be awesome.. I’ll find out soon enough :)

Couldn't have said it better myself @OldPunk... the APEU cross F2 is awesome with those thick crinkle stems(Last Pic) and the Color.  That PE/CRS F2 Cake too... definitely some PE caps without a doubt.  Next level U ARE Sir... @Fahtster

 

@YoshiTrainer... Your "UMBO" Sombrero CAPS have me LIKE...  :ohmy:

Thanks guys!

Yeah those papu are really pretty.. the pics don’t even do em justice.. here’s the 2nd half of that tub.. I actually think it’ll do alright.. there were some nice sized fruits in there and the tub shrunk quite a bit so I wouldn’t be surprised if it made the 2oz dry mark

I had some extra PE/pfrs SS and an extra cake and here’s the result of that

They do not.. the f1 did but non of the f2’s dropped.. at least I don’t think.. the clear spored ones could but I wouldn’t know lol

PE/RW F2 zipblock.. this is the one I thought was going to be just RW since it came from a white rusty dropping fruit on the f1 cake but turned out to be a hybrid

Made pea+ f6, PE/apeu f3, and PE/pesa F2 tubs a couple days ago.. really excited for them.. especially excited to see what the PE/pesa does.. that’s the one I’m not too sure if they crossed.. worst case scenario, I get a couple ozs of pesa lol

Man.. these PE/pesa are gonna be tough to decipher without pigment or spore color to help distinguish between the parents… which brings me to a thought that I had about cross attempts in the early days. There weren’t a lot, if any, unique pheno traits beside size that made varieties different from each other back in the day… so when ppl would mix spores to try and cross hybridize, it wouldn’t really look like the attempts were successful when they actually were. So, when ppl tried and brought their findings to the community, they would get shot down because they were told it couldn’t be done and their crossed fruits didn’t look different enough from the parents to convince the community it actual could be done.

Anyway.. just some food for thought.

Here’s the PE/pesa F2 sandwich baggie.. they definitely have PE pheno caps.. especially the one all the way in the left, but no stem bumpage yet. Like I said, it’s gonna be tough. I’m excited for the full tub.

Not sure who here I still have to convince but I like being thorough and showing you guys how I get to where my heads at… here’s the parent straight pesa:
E03FEAF9-12B6-4405-A062-D7A4013AC2B5.jpeg

And here’s the PE cap pheno I see in all my crosses (that guy in the upper right corner looks like he’s having a great time doesn’t he? LOL):

Looks like there is some bumpage.. sometimes it’s only one side of the stem with these early gens.
56462D70-F1A7-42D0-A490-EEE7BD06D75C.jpeg

Anyway, enough on those until the tub fruits

Here’s a pea+ f5 clone zipblock pinning up.. so glad the later gens like to pin.. the f1 was so finicky. I peat cased this guy but I think a compressed 1/4” top layer would have sufficed and given a better turn out on top

Wonderful work, and those TAT hybrids are very pretty! 

 

In regards to the 1/4" compressed casing, how hard to you compress it? Like a gental pat down, or pressing with enough pressure to compact it without squeezing out moisture?

Thnx! I use something hard and flat and push down fairly lightly.. like maybe 3lbs of pressure (I’m guessing there lol). Just enough until I’m feeling some resistance.. you want the myc to be able to grow through it but kind of slow it down so it doesn’t over colonize it. I’d say it starts at a 1/2” and ends up compressed to a 1/4”. Ppl use a flat masonry trowel for large tubs.. a hand would work but it’s not as nice and evenly flat like you’d get from the trowel.
