Hi all... a while back I made a donation to Topia and was sent a fantastic lucky packet of prints including an Albino PF and something that coorsmikey has been working on called ARX (an Albino cross of sorts). I've been trying to get these two going for months to no avail. My first attempts the grain spawn contaminated on me and most recently I have managed to get some great fully colonised grain spawn for both varieties. Spawning to bulk went well, with a 1:2 ratio of 1qt spawn to 4qt coir/verm substrate. A grteat pinset developed on both and that's kind of where it stopped. They're not getting past pin size before aborting and I have no idea why. An interesting thing here is the insane pinsets they throw out.. Almost as if there is a contam of sorts in the tubs and they're trying their damndest to reproduce...and failing. It really sucks cos both of these strains are on the more unusual spectrum of things to grow and I'd love to get them going. Would be great to hear some thoughts on this... and i can hopefully get them going somehow.
Here are two photos I took this morning.
