PF ALBINO MUTANTS
ALBINO definition (Websters new world dictionary)
2. any animal or plant abnormally lacking in color
For some unknown reason, a PF style cake of PF race shrooms
developed strange white primordia. They grew into shrooms
I have never seen before. They apparantely are ALBINO mutants.
The gills are pure white and sterile (no
spores or reproductive system). The above photo is a close up of
the third flush appearance of the Albino, growing from the base
of the cake in the bottom vermiculite layer. This is a good
example of what a "strain" is. To the left of the albino is a
normal PF race shroom primordia (abhorted). These are two
seperate strains. This is a clear
representation of different strain manifestations
on a single cake.
CLONED PF ALBINO MUTANTS
The shrooms on the left are a first flush of normal PF
race shrooms. The shrooms on the right are the first
flush of the Albino clone (taken from the single specimen
in the above photo).
ALBINO SHROOM CLONING TECHKNIQUE
As hoped for, the original PF Albino manifesting cake delivered
a small third flush, and one Albino formed (the answer to a
prayer to the great fungi from the beyond). This last appearing
Albino was dissected and small fragments of inner flesh were
excised and placed into a culture tube. As hoped for, it took and
began to come to life. After the culture tube medium (Brown rice
agar) was covered with the
sterile water was injected into the culture tube
and the culture was broken up and mixed with a scalpel.
The resultant mix was transfered to a small lab bottle (with
a tight cap) and more water was added.
The bottle was then violently shaken and
with a 13 gauge syringe needle, mycelium rich water was
injected into PF style jars. The Albinos invitro primordiated
and grew like normal PF race shrooms. The bottle that was
used for the injection solution was left with lots of remains.
The bottle regenerated into a type
of liquid culture with little floating "islands" of mycelium.
This Albino is very resilient and spooks me. It looks like
a ghost mushroom. The gills are sterile.
In this view, the sterile gills are shown.
