did anyone ever figure out if the albinos were any more potent than the usual ones? i know that was a common advertisment when they were first out.

By jared (Jared112) on Sunday, December 09, 2001 - 03:08 pm:

They are the exact same, they are just a different color and yield less spores.

By SYDYSTYK (Addict) on Sunday, December 09, 2001 - 04:49 pm:

yield less is more like it

By jim brown (Shrhobbyist) on Sunday, December 09, 2001 - 08:19 pm:

Do you mean yeild less fruit or yeild less spores? I found that mine yeilded quite a lot of fruit. As far as potency, I'm not so sure they were any better. They seemed to be just like the PFCs, which have always been my favorite to use. Of course, the potency of the different shrooms is a long debated, yet never resolved, topic. It is kind of like asking who is the most attractive model. If you ask me PFC and its albino counterpart are the most potent. But that is just my opinion based on my experience.
It has, however, been speculated that the albinos are, or may be, more potent because they do not produce spores and therefore not stop producing psilocybin in there later stages. Of course this would only account for a comparison of older shrooms.

that would be hard to get a acuratereading on the true potency difference if any via eating the same amount. far too many variables. but if the difference between young and old shrooms are noticable itd be easy.

By jim brown (Shrhobbyist) on Monday, December 10, 2001 - 12:47 am:

Yes there are a lot of variables but if you trip many many times on different types of shrooms you start to get a pretty good idea of which strain you feel is the most potent. Like many others, I have come to the conclusion that PFCs are the most reliable to be extremely potent. That is not to say that there is anything wrong with the other races.

if it's a question of potency, there are many strains of higher magic content. do i need to list examples?
albinos have a wide window for maximum potency, due to the fact that they do not sporulate. that makes them easy to harvest. they are quite stunning in appearance, and if given the choice, most people prefer albinos, especially fresh.
cloning is the best way to go when growing albinos, and this is a deterant for the novice. getting spore prints is a major pain, and impossible off the whiteys.
if you've got 'em, grow 'em. you'll like 'em.

well, we've got a few quarts of rye inoculated with the albino strain coming along,
hopefully we'll get a few decent prints to share with our friends.

Definately getting some of those

Are the albinos actually more potent? do they give a different trip? or are they just really neat?

By Quote (Quote) on Tuesday, May 01, 2001 - 03:17 am:

just really neat, otherwise essentially the same as pf classic.

By Fanaticus (Fanaticus) on Tuesday, May 01, 2001 - 05:59 pm:
The albinos are apparantly nothing special in the potency dept. They are just a bizaar thing to behold and investigate.

Speaking of weird fungus PF... did I see it on your site or was it Staments, where some bizarre "glowing" mycelium was being grown? I'd love to get a hold on some of this for a mycolandscaping project along woodland paths, etc. Imagine walking thru the woods at night with your path lit by fungus fire! Maybe I dreamed it... hell sometimes I don't know if I saw it on the web, read it in a book or dreamed it in my head! Anyhow.... if there's glowing fungus amongus let's hear about it.

cool... i harvested my first sterile albino cap... with white gills. it bruised blue HEAVILY from the pressure of the veil breaking around the cap on top. oooh... cant wait.

thanks guys

glowing mycelum... dude....

maybe if you spliced bioflourescence genes into the shroom -- they've done it with monkeys. the monkeys glow. no shit.

By Papasmurf (Papasmurf) on Wednesday, May 02, 2001 - 06:54 pm:

Glowing monkeys your shitting me!!!

By Quote (Quote) on Wednesday, May 02, 2001 - 08:31 pm:

post proof, if you know where there is some, of glowing monkies.

bioluminescent shrooms do exist, there was a big discussion a few months back in the advanced cultivation forum of
you might want to do a search of their archives.

By Cyrusbarnaby (Cyrusbarnaby) on Wednesday, May 02, 2001 - 08:31

My cased PF Albinos are fruiting now, with about half showing a greenish, and some even a yellowish, streaking in their caps. Thus far, only two have matured to the point of veil breakage. These have white gills and show no sign of sporulation. BTW, glowing, gene-"enhanced" mice have been around for at least five years now, yet another proof the the prevailing attitude in science today, is "Ahhh, fuck it. Why not?"

By Mbyrne (Mbyrne) on Wednesday, May 02, 2001 - 09:49 pm:

sorry, the monkey embryos glow, not the full-grown monkeys.

By Oldtimer (Oldtimer) on Wednesday, May 02, 2001 - 11:56 pm:
After many minutes of confused "web surfing" I found the page at Staments site describing the glowing mycelium.

Check it out...

Yeah Paul... my kids will really dig carving "fungus" pumpkins this halloween... and I can't wait for glow-in-the-dark Christmas ornaments consisting solely of bioluminescent mold! Wonder if you can get it to grow into a particular shape by spawning plastic santas, snowmen, reindeers, etc. I see a new industry around the corner!
My mind is running wild with potential uses for this stuff!

interesting links, mbyrne & oldtimer.

Ok gang glowing plants are on the way!
Interesting cross between plant and jellyfish?

By Wang (Wang) on Saturday, May 05, 2001 - 12:56 am:

yo,glowing plants are already here! At U.C San Diego genes from a fireflie were fuses with a tobacoo plant 10 years ago.I think this kind of thing has awsome potention, as plants don't naturally glow. Imagine driving down the freeway, iluminated by glowing plants! this wouldn't affectthe other plants light cycle,either, as green light is merely reflected by them( thats why they're green)i wonder if one could mke glowing bud, or if they'd make YOU glow from smoking them, HMMM< gowing smoke... i think i'll try it hehe
