PF Classic strain...havent heard much about it lately...
    #1961411 - 09/29/03 12:33 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I was going thru some of my prints and forgot that I had several PF Classic prints. I havent read much about any cultivating these in a long time...what gives? Is this strain hard to cultivate or is there some sortage of this strain? From what I remember, these need to be grown on standard cakes and are no good for casing...is this right as well?

the fact that they perform better on cakes than casings is probably the reason...I know thats why I've never had an interest in them

if I remember correctly it has to be grown on BRF. It won't grow on grains or other bulk methods, which makes the the strain very limited. BRF cakes don't yield as much as grains or bulk, I don't think anyone wants to continue doing cakes forever.

From what I hear, if you want to grow the PF way, a N00B can't go wrong with PF classic. The strain was selected because of its love of half pint jars. It'll even grow in a jar invitro (Give it light and the mushies grow in the jar...lid and all) better'n most strains.

If you are getting back into the hobby, PF Classic would be a good first grow.

I'm pretty sure PF classic will grow on substrates other than BRF, but the strain was developed (cloned and agar'd) specifically to thrive with the PF tek.

If memory serves me, the PF tek was made over 20 years of trial and error. That was plenty of time to adapt a strain to PF's needs.

The question still remains: Is PF Classic TOO domesticated to grow in a casing?

agreed. just make sure you didn't end up with the mutant/degenerated strain that appeared for a while.

It's the only strain I've ever seen growing in person.

I've seen it on BRF cakes, and popcorn and cracked corn casings.
