Does anybody know if the PF albinos are available to the public? they look pretty interesting.

I was just curious.

i'm pretty sure pf no longer offers them, just not enough demand.
they are, you may know, the same as the regular pf strain in all other respects.

I think Ralph at FSR has some.

no albinos, sorry.
but you might email him, anyway, just to see.

By Lichen (Lichen) on Monday, November 26, 2001 - 03:35 pm:

he actually posted a couple days ago that he has them. Hopefully he does, because it would be a shame to let it go alltogether. I have it from reliable sources that they are probably stronger than most of the other cubensis races.

i still have a syringe of it,
if enough people really want it,
i could grow out a batch and share the prints.
of course, that would take another month or so,
so those interested should let me know.

quote im intrested,i would love to see the albino race still going. albinos are my fav.

By Lichen (Lichen) on Monday, November 26, 2001 - 04:06 pm:

I lost my last bit of spores to a honeytek snafu. I gave it the old college try, but wound up throwing it out, and now I'm kicking myself, because all my other liquid cultures, both Karo and honey, look about the may have been ok, but I threw it out, and now I have no albinos. I'd be very interested, Quote, in a sporeprint of albinos, although I am trying to get them from somewhere else as we speak. I didn't want to lose that subrace.

By Underground_Shaman (Shaman) on Monday, November 26, 2001 - 04:10 pm:

yeah, i'm going by what he said the other day...

I, too, would like to see this strain saved for posterity's sake.


By quote: (Quote) on Monday, November 26, 2001 - 05:06 pm:

ok, i think we can do that.
i'll set the wheels in motion,
and should have some prints
down the road in 5 or 6 weeks.

By Lichen (Lichen) on Monday, November 26, 2001 - 05:08 pm:

Right On. Excellent course

I thought you couldn't print albino's... do you just take a print of one of the shrooms that do sporulate?

By quote: (Quote) on Monday, November 26, 2001 - 09:06 pm:

correct, brettie.

By Lichen (Lichen) on Monday, November 26, 2001 - 09:08 pm:

In the syringe that I got from fanaticus, there were no visible spores.

By Kenny Keller (Kennieyk) on Monday, November 26, 2001 - 10:21 pm:

Hey Quote I would love to get some albinos ,Please let me know when you get some please. They look so kewl. Thanks !!!

that's pretty much par for pf,
he's got it down so well.
they germinate at every point,
yet they look like plain water.
goes to show that black syringes of spores are wasteful.

By Lichen (Lichen) on Tuesday, November 27, 2001 - 12:05 am:

yes, the sryinges I have been making are flat black. 100's of times more spores in them than pf's. They do seem to make my jars grow faster, but not by any miraculous margin...I don't know, a few days faster may amount to 25% faster, but I guess I'm wasting my spores.

The other spore syringes I got from him at the same time as the albinos did have visible spores in them; all of them do. Light, but visible

By Liberty_Caps (Liberty_Caps) on Tuesday, November 27, 2001 - 01:35 am:

I belive, if you have a dark syringe they would grow faster to
I have done 2 batches of 8 jars and everytime MY HOME MADE SYRINGES frome my hawwian prints
have been faster then my PF syringes.
but that's only what I have noticed

By Lichen (Lichen) on Tuesday, November 27, 2001 - 01:51 am:

yes, they are a bit faster....the more spores, the quicker the colonization

By UnkyHerb (Notapplicable) on Tuesday, November 27, 2001 - 05:17 am:

The more spores, the more cottony growth instead of rizomorphic right? And quote, i'd like a print pleeeease :) I'll return the favor and hand out prints when they are finished, anything to help out fanaticus's race.. who knows, he might even start offering them again once people start demanding :)

And since most Albino's are sterile, they never sporlate, or loose potency.. right? ;)

By Brettiejams (Brettiejams) on Tuesday, November 27, 2001 - 06:09 am:

I've never experimented with it myself.... but it has been suggested, by P.F. at least, that low spore count innoculations, while taking a bit longer to colonize, may , in fact, produce more rhyzomorphic(better fruiting) myc on the outside of the cake(the fruiting area).

Resulting in better fruiting.

By quote: (Quote) on Tuesday, November 27, 2001 - 10:43 am:

i really cannot concur about black syringes being noticably faster.
at least, that has not been my experience.
i used to get really thick syringes from 3m, still have a few left,
and the jars still took about 14 days to colonize,
same as with my clear syringes.
that's assuming .25 cc per hole, 4 holes.
now, using more per hole will speed it up a bit,
but that applies to both clear and dark syringes.
it's more important to get the spores widely dispersed than it is to have them dense.

By Sillycybin (Sillycybin) on Tuesday, November 27, 2001 - 06:04 pm:

Certainly with the interest in albinos that's been expressed lately on the board, there can't be lack of demand. I thought PF said something about not selling the albino spores anymore not because of lack of demand, but because of lack of supply. Since there are fewer spore-producing fruits, one would have to grow an awful lot of sterile mushrooms (heh, the cultivator's grail, the spore vendor's bane) in order to get a few mushrooms that will make prints.

Perhaps it was just economically inefficient to continue selling albino spores. He is, after all, a businessman. No faulting him for making practical business decisions.

Course, i wish i had gotten my paws on a syringe before he stopped selling them. Quote, add my name to the list of people who'd love an albino spore print if you have enough. I'll promise you my firstborn...or a print of a mazatec if you prefer.


By quote: (Quote) on Tuesday, November 27, 2001 - 06:08 pm:

think i'd prefer the print.
thx anyway.

By Sillycybin (Sillycybin) on Tuesday, November 27, 2001 - 06:19 pm:

Heh--i was just being silly.

I'd rather have a print than a firstborn, too.

By SYDYSTYK (Addict) on Saturday, December 01, 2001 - 02:19 pm:

just my exp, but the albinos are not a very good producer, nice to look at(thats really an understatement), same nice potency as pfc, but they didnt fruit well at all for me, but thats just me
