Were you able to find any documentation on the work done to create these strains? I did some quick google fu and haven't found anything yet.I disagree. A hell of a lot of work goes into these things. An albino mushroom pops up in a Golden Teacher tub and they take it through seven odd generations from spore to stabilize the Albino traits and then name it True Albino Teachers. During this time a few mutant mushrooms pop up that are very similar in look to Penis Envy, except they're Albino, grow large and have these really nice wavy caps. So they take spores from those, stabilize them through however many generations needed and then name them. Same story with Ghost. Now essentially what you're saying is these stabilized phenotypes should all still be called Golden Teachers?I think it's bad form to be renaming a strain because it has been isolated. Next people will be renaming them every time they take a sporeprint. Soon you'll have no idea what you have anymore.There are some people doing great work and then there are others that renaim something random and call it Peacock... You just have to sift through the bullshit and make sure you're following the people that are doing good stuff. The isolates like Yeti and Ghost are not crosses but stabilized phenotypes from the particularly unstable True Albino Teacher lineage and now a shit load of crosses are happening from those isolates. Some look cool and quite different like Jack Frost for instance and others don't. I do agree that there's a lot of bullshit being peddled out there and it's making a mess of things.
He is at least documenting what he is doing and you can believe it or not.
Every other week theres some new bullshit strain from the social media sites, probably dont even mix spores just dilute a syringe from a reputable vendor relabeled it and sell as the strain du jour.
The only way I'll be sifting bullshit is if it's going into my substrate.
