I didn't really check the pith consistancy, but I wish I had. The nodding did come back with a vengence, probably worse than originally.

yeah it did.. wow. i have not seen very many pigmented fruits nod like that with falbino. usually pure albinos and chimeras. the fruits with the most apparent PFA genetics have been the worst. i wish we could actually see and understand the dna organization. this is absolutely fascinating!

:bow::bow::bow:


that big one is really nice! so far a nice balance of all three strains. and lavender spores!!! :heart: i've seen that white rind before too. maybe not quite as pronounced, but i have seen it sometimes with the guadalajara strain, matias romero and old PE back in the 90's.. and some falbino throw outs.

this is great! thanks man. :hugs:

:heart:

I keep going back to that autopsy picture.

It looks weirder every time I study it.

The outer feature - the rind - seems to be quite distinct for the full length of the stem. And it doesn't show any significant bluing.

The center ring of the three shows the most bluing, but there is a sharp delineation at the brownish edge.

The center ring, the pith, shows some bluing but mostly only along the cut lines.

It is almost like that stem is showing some evidence of three different growth phases, like rings on a tree.

I just keep looking at that picture...I've never seen a cubensis stem that looked anything like that. I've seen other mushrooms with similar features, but never a cubensis.

Weird stuff, man.

maybe it found a way to cure the nodding on it's own. after watching semper elude a clear plastic dome i can put nothing past mushrooms anymore.

The bluing in rings definitely seems to be a PE trait. PE6 cross section-

monokaryotic work sounds tricky but very interesting!

Does this method only work within same species?Would it be possible to cross whole species that were at least from the same section?

Has it been attempted before??

-pretty much.

-maybe, but the chance are extremely thin and it may require some assistance.

-yes. RodgerRabbit has been working on crossing species for years now. i heard he had some success, but have yet to see it.

i have read of success with cordyceps species. this is where RR got the snake venom idea. another agent mentioned is ethylene glycol. i've come up with a few similar solvents myself, but have yet to test them.

possible yes. easy no. ;)
