Thanks, Microbe. I have worked on the genitics quite a bit on that culture. It originally came from hawk back in 2010. I grew a few ms grows and started cloning, isolating and painstakingly testing. Here is a picture I have posted before showing the ms grow I cloned from back then:

That is my favorite spore vendor btw. Never had a single issue there.

When you spend so much time and get intimate with a culture, the reward is very satisfying. Working trying to capture a specific set of genetics that exhibit the phenotypes we all seek, is by far my favorite thing to do in the hobby.

Your efforts and passion is clearly visible in this grow.

And I'm always grateful and glad when you comment In my threads, whitethumb. Looks like you got some nice fruit from the PW's and the AA+. I am actually growing some AA+ on agar as we speak complements of Jammer for the free print (again thanks, bro).

you make it so easy to comment in your threads. love watching you do your thing. i have some goodies on agar right now..... pm if you want the scoop ;)

Thanks bud! Will pm you now. You got me curious.

And thank you, Microbe for the kind words. I'm glad my passion for this hobby shows in my work. Believe me, yours does too, bro. Your attention to detail and wanting to know WHY sets you apart from the normal hit and quit it grower. Your work is awesome. Keep it up!

Thank you for the kind words also. And you nailed it. I want to know the why behind the why. I asked a question early into this hobby, why? Why manure, or why hardwood. If we find out the why behind the why, it allows our minds to expand and find other ways practical or not.

Im still very new to this hobby. I started doing research in November of 2013 and joined in december of 2013. I really studied and learned a lot my first year and then the second year i became complacent and got board and engaged in the hobbybfor the wrong reason and i will leave it at that without the details for obvious reasons.

I have taken almost a year off from projects. Now in this year i have been reading any developing theories and im ready to test all of them now. I was no longer challanged with cubes and there are so many species that one can work with rather in be edible, medicinal, active, or even what i would consider to be novelty and most that have a greater challenge the species i have been working with.

In fact i dont ever have to grow another active the rest of my life and still enjoy and learn the craft.

I want to grow the Hydnellum peckii for an example because i think it would freaking awesome. The problem is finding a culture to start with.

Also called the bleeding tooth

Im not saying i will be good all the time but i will make sureni stay engaged in the hobby for the right reason, the passion i have for it, wanting to contribute to the communities i have come to love and even developed some friendships that are more meaningful then any other friendships i have developed over my life time.

I want to help evolve the hobby many years down the road know i had contributed. I love helping others, i love pushing the edge and going against the grain but in a positive and non arrogant way.

Finally i want to feed the super science nerd i oddly developed about a decade ago that started with botany and alkaloid extractions. I never grew plants i just performed some crude kitchen chemistry in them. I played sports and never was i that stereotypical jock, but i was average in school, dated pretty girls, and hung out with the crowd that noone else would. I am a successful business man and i still look at this and wonder how i developed this passion for messing with fungi and if someone would have told me that i would own a microscope one day, i would have laughed my ass off. Now i own a microscope ;)

My poiny to this rambling is i love this science and nothing has ever captivated me like this has. Im on my way back and were going to have a lot of fun!

Oh I think 98 percent of us started for that obvious reason you eluded to. I know I did as well I started when I was 18 for that exact reason. But then something similar happened to me as well, I got bitten by the bug and just fell in love with the whole process and was mesmerized by science of it. The attention to detail, sterile technique etc and to see your hours of work produce a mushroom fruit body at the end of the day is very rewarding IMO.

Edibiles are just as fun, you will get the same reward from them with the added benefit of eating delicious fresh mushrooms and being able to share the fruits of your labor with friends and family.

I rarely injest actives these days but just still love to grow for growing's sake. And I like you was not a science guy in high school or college. I played sports as well in high school (mostly basketball). I did however take a senior level fungi course my Sophomore year of college and learned a plethora of helpful knowledge about higher fungi.

I started with agar out of ignorance but am glad I did because it's just a huge part of my style of growing. I grew my first crop (horrible but it was mushrooms) before I had even heard about the PF tek or forums like this from cased grain. Hell that was back in the days when all you for Internet was dial up and I did not have it period. My only access to the Internet was when I went to college. I then found Drooldonkey and shroomery and a lot of people most notibly, Hippie3 helped out a lot! And my crappy crops turned in to better and better crops thanks to him and a few other helpful growers. I then joined here way back when, still a noob really, when Drooldonkey went down and hip started topia. My name back then was "Fender". I have searched for some posts but cannot find them. I would absolutely love to read some of the stupid stuff I must of posted back then haha. I have taken many hiatuses over the years but the passion for mycology never left me. I also stayed off of the boards for several years, but lurked from time to time. Since I met my wife, I got back into it hard core again, as we love fresh organic foods and mushrooms.

That looks like a cool mushroom, bro. I have never seen one. I find the mycorrhizal relationship between fungi and plants, very interesting. That whole concept proves, at least in my mind, how important fungi is to our wonderful planet. I am also planning on broadening my horizons by nocing up many stumps, old logs etc in woods section of my back yard with my blue and yellow oyster cultures as well as my lions mane culture and letting nature take over.

Now I guess I'm rambling lol.

Last update on this grow.

Dried weight of this grow after 3 flushes:

This is my last grow with this culture back in December of 2014, all variables being the same:

This is a very consistent growing culture even though it is 5 years old. This is the beauty of utilizing long term storage with agar slants IMO.

Still pretty good for a mini mono of pans, especially since they dry down to nothing.

If this the last update then if you don't mind Peacefrog, I would like to move it to the Vaults?
