Ghia's Tidalwave Blob Thread (aka Brainiac) (aka Enigma) * 8
    #25427363 - 09/01/18 06:57 AM (4 years, 1 month ago)

Ghia's "Tidalwave" Mutant Blob Thread (aka "Brainiac" substrain stabilization experiment)



    Those of you who know me well know I have a love for the truly exotic. Well, I have a new project to work on... These incredibly gnarly mutant blob genetics were donated (for scientific purposes) by SWIM (not someone from Shroomery, so please be kind admins).
 
    Some back story of the Tidalwave strain for those who aren't aware, this strain is "B+" and "Penis Envy" genetics crossed. There are others working on the stabilization of the Tidalwave strain that have genetics ranging from normal cube taxonomy to fat stiped PE-like fruits with a slightly larger cap, that produce more spores than PE.

    SWIM however got this funky brain-like mutation, that apparently is much more potent than a normal cube. And maybe more than PE... An interesting difference (he says) is that the effects are more like Ecstasy (with visuals) than normal cube trips. SWIM has shared photos from repeating flushes that continued to produce these blobs. There are a few other people working on this as well, none of which are from here. SWIM is currently working on the backstory for me to share here. I will edit the OP when he provides the text and pics for me.

    My interest in this substrain is mostly the fruit formations, which seem to form like the folds in a brain. It has as of yet not produced spores, which is another goal of mine. I will also be experimenting with a few different fruiting methods and substrates to see if that effects fruit formation. The end goal is to produce a stable mutant that can produce a small amount of spores and be fruited like a "Lion's Mane" or "Hen of the Woods".

So, without further adieu... Let me introduce the star of this show..... Brainiac!



     




    Moving forward, here are my first steps I will be taking. Pasty's "No-pour" tek is a great method, but I prefer the glass half-pint Kerr brand jars and a simple modified lid. I'll start of by describing my agar method. I wrote my agar recipe on the lid of the agar jar  so that I quit forgetting it. :wink: This has been scaled so that it can be used for a large amount of dishes, or just a few. The recipe is:

1 part grain-soak water to 9 parts clean water.
1 heaping 1/8 tsp of agar powder per jar (2g per 100ml of broth).

    Easy! I like that the myc starts off on the same nutrient profile as the grains it'll be transferred to later, plus you don't have to mess with any other nutrients bases (nasty malt extract, etc)

    I keep my GS water in the freezer and just thaw some off in the microwave as needed. For this small application, I used a syringe to squirt 2.5ml of raw GS water into each jar. I then added the agar powder and hot clean water. For larger scale I usually mix the hot and GS waters in a jar, then use a large syringe to measure 25ml of "broth" into each jar after putting the powder in. Use a spoon to stir the contents, then PC for 30 minutes at 15 PSI. I don't often get to use my small electric PC, but when I do it's awesome!







    While I've got the lil' PC out, I'm doing a few half-pint grain jars as well. Two will be used for G2G, and two I will case and attempt to fruit directly from the jars. This batch of grains is red milo with a dash of coffee in the grain soak water, PC'd at 15 PSI for 60 minutes. Next batch of grains I will be returning to my preferred mix of red milo/fescue grass seed at 1:1 ratio by volume (not weight).



    I will be updating in the OP as I go, so make sure you re-check it to see progress. To be clear, this is a blob mutation, NOT a sclerotia. Cubensis do not produce sclerotia... :wink:

UPDATE: 9/14/18

Colonizing wonderfully, just look at those rhizos!!!




UPDATE: 9/17/18

It's finally transfer day! Took some T5 samples from the ropey rhizos in the first pic, then noc'd the 3 jars of my T4 culture to grain (1:1 milo/grass seed. One dish is a T5 transfer with samples from three T4 dishes, to see if the cloned tissue is a monoculture, or if the consecutive transfers has allowed genetic variances. The new round of agar was mixed with half my new normal nutrient level (1:25 instead of 1:12.5, hoping that the lower nutrient makes the myc go even more rhizo.





UPDATE: 10/14/18

This myc is just incredible! Contrary to usual, the myc gets more rhizo the more nutrients you give it.




Here are the three cased half-pint jars of straight grain. They started pinning about 1-1.5 weeks after I cased it.








I've got six 5 pounds bags of verm/perlite substrate colonizing now as well.




UPDATE: 10/21/18





UPDATE: 10/26/18





UPDATE: 11/1/18




UPDATE: 11/4/18

So, after 25 days of fruiting I decided to call the "Brainiac" test jars done. I used a sprayer to remove the casing material, and broke up the fruits to clean them better. Got just under 70g wet weight. I'm also dehydrating the colonized milo substrate to test the myc for micro-dosing viability.

What did I learn most from the test jars? Don't use a casing with the "Brainiac", and use a large enough substrate to produce larger blobs. Otherwise the time it takes to fruit them isn't worth the harvest.






Next for the Brainiac will be fruiting 5lb verm/perlite blocks in filter patch bags. Updates will follow in the OP again when I have more to update.


UPDATE: 11/11/18


And we continue.... I ended up having to get a 4'x4'x6.5' Mylar grow tent to house my new automated martha and storage shelving to keep proper colonizing and fruiting temps. I added a string of green LED's to the martha because of this great article on the effects of monochromatic LED lighting. I highly recommend reading it. In fact, a couple days after adding it is when I noticed all the "Brainiac" blocks where covered in hyphal knots and pins.

The 9 blocks on the top three shelves in the martha are the "Brainiac" blocks. Sorry about the striping in the photos, it's the effect of the blue and green lighting.





UPDATE: 11/22/18


Here's some fin pin porn! :wink: Zoom in, my camera is a decent one.




UPDATE: 12/4/18

These things are SOOOOO slow. Getting a couple good formations though. I do seem to be getting "fuzzy feet" on the blocks, which I'm assuming is from too high RH. Moved the blocks to the bottom two shelves of the Martha since they seem to run a bit lower than the top two. I'll give them about 3.5 weeks left as that's when the next batch of PE will be going into the Martha and I'll need the space. Here's pics.




UPDATE: 12/10/18

I had to pull the blocks as the fuzzy blobs showed themselves to be Mycogone (Wet Bubble). In reading more on the contamination I found that Mygone usually comes from too low moisture content (below 60%), and too low pasteurization temps. Mycogone dies at 140F (60C), so proper pasteurization temps should always kill it. Oh well, it was a fun grow for sure, and I got around 311 g wet weight. Will be drying the fruits to save for when I am in the mood to test potency. I very rarely partake anymore, just like growing weird things.... Have a couple friends who have been waiting patiently to guinea-pig for me though. :smile:

Here are pics of the two largest clusters w/ weights, and the last pic is all the rest of the small clusters.




My final assessment of the initial test grow is that as aggressive as the culture is it seems to require a bit higher level of nutrient than average. Since this substrate was straight verm/perlite, the only nutrient provided was the quart of grain spawn. I'd say any normal substrate recipe would be sufficient, and would probably love Hpoo (pretty sure others have tested Hpoo already). I still think the length of time it takes for fruit formation is a problem, and could result in higher chances of contamination after first flush. Another mildly annoying point is that with the lack of a cap, it is really hard to tell when the fruit is actually ready to pick or if it'll just keep growing. I hope to see someone test just how long a single cluster will continue to grow before it stalls or shows some sign of definitive "ripeness".

I have a test dish left that has begun pinning on the agar, so I'll probably keep working with it in the background for a while. It'll probably be a few months before I re-visit fruiting this weirdo, but when I do I'll post any results here.

One of my first predictions is that this formation should be able to tolerate lower RH than normal, but will draw much more water from the substrate each flush.

This is so sick!
I cant imagine these producing spores somehow but if it is possible to keep it alive somehow long-term... that would be awesome.

Wanna try these!!! X-like shrooms. My dreams have come true :smile:

Reminds me a bit of this
https://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/25285598

I wonder if its a pinning initiation error. Pins are just specialized mycelium. These blobs look like extremely dense formations of mycelium that are not pins.

When i examined my blob thing from the above thread it was really just a bunch of strands of rhizomorphic mycelium jam packed together.

Gotta double check with SWIM, but I'm pretty sure the wet-weight was over 900g.

Hey Bohdi, how ya been man? Yeah, I've had this happen with P. ostreatus too. Some of SWIM's blobs did look more like your blobs, but I haven't ever seen this brain-like folding formations. It's almost like a Sparassis crispa (cauliflower mushroom).

Feel free to post updates of your blobs here. If you have other non-blob Tidalwaves, I'd suggest starting your own threads for those. I do want to link all the various Tidalwave threads together though, so if you do start your own threads please make a link here for them.

This goes for everyone working on the Tidalwave strain.

Are there other blob threads that they've gotten these brain-like folds, or are they more the globular formations?

Mushrooms are tertiary mycelium with differentiated cells and structures serving unique processes in the pin.

Forming melanated caps, spore forming structures, veil tissue. Those cells are fully differentiated from stranded secondary mycelium.

Blobs seem like a middle ground between secondary and tertiary mycelium

Hi Primal, good to have ya join the party. :smile: I saw your last thread. Guess you took a break too huh? I gave up growing anything for a couple years, even spent a year up in MI managing my ex's family's dispensary. Had 4 patients I was caregiver to as well.

I took a couple/few year break mostly due to some crap harvests, business needs, and just the general "god my usual mental experience is like tripping now" thing that happens after enough time with the shrooms.  But even then kept running into people - random strangers often enough- who turn out to either be actively growing or really into psychedelics and either way interested in the next step.  Enough so I think "WTF must get back into it." 

I've got some interesting projects I'd like to work on if I can just get my goddamn sterile culture tek actually working again. :mushroom2:

Thanks but too much work presently, and I never wear a mask anyway. :lol:  The SAB has a plastic drape on the entire front, no armholes.  I'm like really old skool.

House has a high spore load sometimes and summer only makes that all the worse.  But nitrile gloves and some iso and I'm usually good to go.  :shrug:

I'll update the OP after I get off work tonight, but I have fin pins... Bodhi, they actually do form pins, with no caps.

It's amazing how some people get butthurt when you don't bow down and praise them for accidentally creating a blob mutation that they had no idea would mutate.... I was kicked out of the Tidalwave Blob Fakebook group because.... Well, I'll just post the ignorant shit...


" Yeah, I've been tore between him too. Personal feelings aside, it's just the look at me and what I'm doing. No mention of a group effort with him being a part but more taking the lead with it. He's dropped big names repeatedly to make it known he's somebody important and raves about all his views. It's the barggart part of him that I personally dislike. That aside, I have seen him sharing cultures and stuff among the group. I can tolerate him just fine and as I've said, it's your show. If you want him ill put him back in. He actually has been working on the blob and posting to the group. The other guys were a definite threat to our agenda. I have no doubt they were looking to sell the cultures. I didn't know that guy was the Dom. I've seen his postes but didn't make the connection. I just more than anything want the credit of this thing to go to you. Why I put your name on every dish I make of it. I'll put Jacob back if that's what you want. I don't feel he's a danger, just one to brag about it and leading others to believe he's somehow heading the thing when it's a group effort thanks to you. If he sees everythibg that's been said today, he should get the idea real quick. Just give me the word brother, your in the captains chair."

If you're going to insult someone, maybe you should make sure you've used proper punctuation and spelling... :ohyou:

Oh well, fuck it. Like I said on FB, I'm not going to credit Alan R everytime I post about my allenii bed, and now I'm going to do my best to NEVER give credit to the person who accidentally created this. Dude sectored out a bunch of dishes, then sent them to another guy who actually fruited it and discovered the mutation. The second guy is who I'll give credit to, and that's it. I'll take credit for MY grows every time, because I'm the one growing my grows.... There is no "group effort", there's a bunch of guys who have separate grows using different grains, subs, and fruiting teks, all trying to be the one who finds a way to stabilize it. It's not like they are a team of people working in a fucking lab... This butthurt fuck ain't done shit for the world of amateur mycology other than give a few active prints/cultures away to people and sector out this myc without ever fruiting it to test the isolation's viability. By his stupid-ass mentality, a resume with personal references means you're a braggart. Oh, wait... I mean "barggart"! :laugh2:

I got a box knotting up as we speak. Is taking longer for pin development. Pin clone culture.

All my tidal wave plate threw out nice pins/clusters and some matured enough to drop spores.

Yeah, everyone that got the culture seems to be having the same formation as the original blob. Mine is acting weird, which could be because mine has a casing and is on straight grain.

Haven't tried it yet, but swim says it's like rolling on X, with visuals. I imagine the potency is pretty high, judging by the bluing of the blobs and the myc itself.

The mutant pictured weighed almost 1000g wet. The initial trip reports have all been positive. People are indicating 1g feels equal to 2.5 of regular P. cubensis.
There is a team of folks working on this project actually. There is lc. The mutant is consistent and produces fins that form together making the fruit body. We have taken swabs from tissue and are trying to find gill tissue in all the subsequent fruits and will hope to stabilize it. Oh and it has been renamed. **********ENIGMA*********** none of us liked the name and did not want to be connected to Tidal Wave or its origins.

I wonder if its a pinning initiation error. Pins are just specialized mycelium. These blobs look like extremely dense formations of mycelium that are not pins.

When i examined my blob thing from the above thread it was really just a bunch of strands of rhizomorphic mycelium jam packed together.



They appear as pins that form all across the substrate and then continue to grow together as it matures.

Shit it's been a trip. It does drink lots of water. The bigger fruits bruise when misted eventually contaminate and force harvest. The group feels like it would keep growing until all resources have been depleted.I have two dubs and two mycobags going with varying sub to spawn ratios. It really just doesn't matter. It produces the same behaviors and mutations every time.

Unicorn mycobag type A with an L  micron filter. 1st bag 1:2 spawn to sub 2nd 1:1

Thanks for chiming in. :smile: "Enignma" huh? Still think "Brainiac" fits it better, but ok. Why are y'all wanting to deny it's Tidalwave origin? Is your unicorn bag still sealed, or have you cut it open yet?

We are not trying to hide its origin at all. We would just rather distance ourselves from the brand and the person. The mycobag  was used as a fruiting chamber and FAE is controlled with varying techniques to monitor the growth with different levels of FAE as it matures. Currently they are both semi-restricted to the FAE allowed through the filter. 

Question for you. You do realize that SWIM stands for "someone who is me" right? How far has your cultures grown my man? Have you been able to fruit any yet? Would love to see some more Enigma. As the trip reports keep coming in it would seem pretty consistent, although completely subjective, that it is taking the PE characteristic in regards to potency at least.

Considering ghia is the OP of this thread, I would leave it named as he had. Braniac seems most fitting. My :twocents:
Amazing results all around nonetheless.
Would be cool to see some action under a scope for a little bit more in depth look at what we have here

BTW, “SWIM” stands for someone who ISN’T me, which isn’t really used on this forum anyway

Appreciate the feedback. thank you. Sorry if my understanding of the word SWIM was misunderstood in this forum as it is the only way I've ever heard it used and refers to the individual using it. That is dated though and I understand. As far as the name goes. Of course OP can call his work what ever he likes as it is his work. The original work that produced the mutation was not my own. So out of respect for that individual I will refer to our work as it is now been named. No offense to OP or this forum or you what so ever. More respect for the individual work of the individual responsible is all. Would also love to get this to some one to put under the scope as well, as the mycelium displays two very different characteristics while colonizing simultaneously. I will upload the pic. I'm new to the site and hope I'm not out of bounds or out of place and hope to become a contributing member of the community. Mush Luv!

Ok,
so for my unterstanding: This Tidal Waves Mutant has this one Father, that distributed the LC.

mr. nelsonmtman et al. went and growed some of that which looks beautifully crazy on the pictures and now call it Enigma

ghiajake (OP) has its kickass martha with monochromatic light (awsome paper by the way). He calls the blob Brainiac.

What does this guy who got the mutation to begin with wants to call his baby? or doesnt care?

No. The person who isolated the culture initially sent a culture to the individual who grew it out and got the mutation. From agar. That mutant was cloned and the subsequent agar cultures were handed out to an initial few folks, which I am one. Subsequent agar cultures from the same original culture were handed out to a few more like OP. The individual who grew the first mutant from the culture is fine and likes the name Enigma. The initial group including the original individual responsible for the isolation are all in agreement about the name. From the original culture LC is being made. As all the cultures from all the other mutant fruits are consistently producing the same characteristics and mutation. We have only really experimented with fruiting chambers and ratios in hopes of identifying gill tissues to swab for spores.

It is definitely our focus. Hopefully one of them will mutate differently just enough. Still swabbing anything that even looks like it could.

Shroompy, I was one of a handful of people to be originally gifted the culture, then was kicked out of their cliquey group because they thought I was trying to steal the credit for an accidental mutation. This was addressed in this thread already. Anyone growing it can call it whatever they want, it's whoever stablizes it by getting spore production that gets to give it it's final name. That hasn't happened yet...

Did you start this from ms or a culture someone had already isolated? If you started this with a culture the name should be made by the person who first isolated the culture. Growing out an already isolated culture isn't discovering it.

I get what you are saying. No, I didn't isolate it. But like I said prior, the person who stabilizes a strain get's to name it. I don't have a problem calling it "Enigma" if that is what the original grower prefers. Unless I'm the one who stabilizes it, then I'll name it my name. Technically, it's still the "tidalwave" strain until spores are produced it is stablized...

Yet some more misinformation here. You were secondary in the gifting of the culture. Never did you have any claim or right to even discuss the name or fight any pending name change etc. You were a participant that did not display character traits that we found beneficial to the team working to stabilize the culture. Which is already proving to be pretty stable from culture. As it consistently behaves the same way from every generation a culture has been fruited. Our goal now is to find spores. Like PE it is a challenge and lots of swabbing has occurred. Fingers crossed we find a viable means and source to recreate from MS to Stabilize.
From your last statement it is pretty clear what your intention is and has always been. Ego is not your amigo my man. This is why you were kicked out of the group in the first place. We never feared you would stabilize it through your own efforts. We did not want to be a part of someone who sole interest seemed to be showboating and grandstanding. MushLuv brother. Hope that clears up the reasoning for you my man.

^ This guy... I don't care what the name is or credit man, I just think the name fits it best. First or second wave of gifting, whatever man. It really doesn't matter. If y'all wanna make yourselves feel special that's just fine. I don't need public affirmation, so y'all have fun with that. I'd rather have public discussion.

Yes, I see that the clone is stable. Clones usually are stable when it comes to expressing the same traits as the original specimen btw, especially since the culture was isolated before it was ever fruited. I know how this works man, and until non-stable genetics express themselves then no spores will ever form from it. If you actually want my opinion about it, it is going to take stressing the culture to force those other genetic traits to come out. Like I did with the malformed fruits I got from the cased straight grain test fruiting. The more stable the fin formation in furthering generations is just gonna make it that much harder to stablize. Personally, I'd suggest y'all make slants of the T2 and T3 cultures for future cultivation if you haven't already. Further isolations might lose the potency before y'all figure out how to get it stablized. That's what happened with the sporeless Purple Mystic strain I worked on for a couple years.

It appears it was fairly stabilized by the time you got it, your grow looks just like the other dozen of them I've seen.

I believe mr.nelsonmtman pretty well sumed it up in his last post. Ghiajake, you were not one of the folks originally gifted the culture. You were brought in well after our work had began and without group consent. You weren't removed for trying to steal the credit. What you posted, my words about you, was only a very small snippet of what I actually said that day to that individual in a private chat. The fact that you would publicly post that drama for all to see is a very good example of why you were removed from the group. One of many reasons. I don't care for drama or public temper tantrums. One of the main reasons for your removal was this post. You claimed it was to document our work as a group. After you began it and members seen it, mr.nelsonmtman asked about the rest of the groups work (which was well underway) and your response was, "Thats for my work, you guys can post yours in the comments below. " That is where the whole taking credit issue began. I didn't reply to your crying post on fb and I hate that I'm doing it here, but this is where it counts and the record is being made so it must be set straight.
As for the name, it is Enigma. The culture began here and the name will come from the group that's doing the work on it together. I don't know what book the rule, "If I stabilize it, I'll name it my name." came from, but we're not using it. It was a privilege to be a part of it and it's a shame you showed no gratitude for being included for the time you were.  Mush love and above all else, mush RESPECT.

This was the beginning of the issue? If y'all had talked to me about it I could have cleared that up. But you wouldn't talk to me and just made decisions based on assumptions. So since you are finally talking to me about it, then let's clear that part up right now. When I stated that, I was under the impression that y'all wanted me to edit my OP to include y'all's grows. Why would I do that? If someone what's to share their experiences with the mutation, then the appropriate place IS in the comments of the OP. At the time I created this thread it was the only showcase that the strain was getting here on Shroomery. None of y'all had posted. If you had a problem with that, then start and official thread for it. I don't see why this was ever an issue. You made an assumption about my behaviors and never manned up and asked me directly. But whatever guys. To be honest your exclusive adolescent behavior towards it has really lessened my interest in the strain. It's a cool novelty for sure, but it's creators are a bit too snobby for me. I'll finish up this current grow then I'm done with it. Have fun dictating who's worthy of your accidental mutation.

As far as I see it, this is all that has to be said. It was disclaimed in the original post that the culture was given to you, which takes out the aspect of claiming its creation.
Create a separate thread if there’s an issue instead of derailing a good one.

They keep going on about the name too, even though the thread title is the appropriate strain name AND I've said multiple times that I have no problem using their new name... But I'm the one "show-boating and grand-standing". :awesomenod:

@ghiajake
I read the article on light and growth. Still can´t understand why a green LED would make any sense.. As far as I understood, its the Blue light what makes the best growth and if one would want to ad a spectrum, it would be red light, since that batch had also positive effects on the development of the FBs

or did I miss something?

I read the article on light and growth. Still can´t understand why a green LED would make any sense.. As far as I understood, its the Blue light what makes the best growth and if one would want to ad a spectrum, it would be red light, since that batch had also positive effects on the development of the FBs

or did I miss something?

besides that: nice Blobs, or Brainiacs or Enigmas or whatevers...





Well, It does kind of make sense really if you think about it. Green light isn't used by plants, and passes through down to the forest floor. Even cubes grow best under the edge of the tree canopy, where cows rest in the shade. As seen in the article, blue IS better in all aspects besides pileus formation, where green is best. Other than that, green scored second only to blue on all other aspects, and better than red, yellow, and flourescent in all aspects. I know it seems counter-intuitive since we learn "green light isn't good for anything", but it is what it is I guess...

Cool freshening up on that color spectrum info as I didn't know about the pileus formation triggering..
Gonna have to check how bad it actually is to have only blue UV-ey LED like i have.

Am definitely interested in this blob unit as like you I love the weird stuff (:

It seems though like stabilizing would involve not finding viable spores in there just one time, right? I mean it's a start though, it's one step in the process afaik.
I'm not super optimistic since it would seem like going to spores would inherently take you to a direction of the mutation reverting, but hey i am not that knowledgeable and it's that much bigger of an achievement if someone could pull of stabilizing this.

So it is confusing that someone suggests it was already pretty stabilized while at the same time it's unclear whether spores can be harvested without tissue, to ensure that you aren't just cloning it.
But please clarify if that's wrong.

Most of time when cloning a fruit you are merely narrowing the gene pool in which it will pull from. This is the reason cloning mutations hardly ever repeats from clone. As there is still enough genetics left to pull from. This mutation however continues to repeat in all attempts from the cloned culture. This is why I say its semi stable. Meaning the genetic strain is almost certainly a monoculture. This one strain being this mutation that occurs to the fruiting bodies. So in theory if we can make it produce spores all the MS pool will have been eliminated already. Making it possible to recreate from spore and legal to share with the world.

This mutation was a monoculture before anyone fruited it, that's why it has "stable" growth formations. I did a monoculture test by placing three tissue samples from three different dishes on the same plate. No division line, and all myc grew together seamlessly. Granted, I started off with T3 culture, and the test was done with cuttings from my T4 transfers. If the others in their group have had different results, I don't know.

I hope someone eventually finds spores, but as "stabile" as the formations are I'm doubtful it's going to happen any time soon. It really is going to boil down to mass quantity of fruits grown by different people using different techniques and substrates to pull the spore producing genes back out. If they still exist in the isolated mutation...

So, the cliquey group now got me kicked off a FB group I adminned because they refused to be in the group with me. Some bullshit about me reporting some post in a group, yet nobody had the balls to confront me about it or even ask me if I did. Oh, and they brought up the name thing again, even though I suggested the name "Brainiac" before they ever named it and even stated in this thread that I'd call it whatever... Oh well. Some people will find any reason to exclude someone who doesn't lick their boots the way they want them to. The mutation is cool, but the time it takes to fruit is a pain in the ass. I'll finish the grows I have to finish the review, but overall so far the experience in dealing with the originators has been disappointing to say the least. I wish them luck in producing spores, and the fame they seek. I'll shift my attention to my fruiting P. subtropicalis culture.

I was following this Thread because it looked like something I had never seen before... But why all this drama? my fucking god! It takes the fun away of watching this project develop.

At a point I wanted somehow to be part of it! All excited and stuff.. watching the blob grow. Never thought that it will make spores, because of its biology. but still.

Now I have no interest anymore...

@ghiajake thanks for the update on lightning. looking forward to that subtropicalis log :smile:

I don’t think it will ever produce spores.

What should be done is mix the myc from this and from a PE clone and see if you can keep the odd blobbing while maintaining some normal ish fruits, or maybe blobs and brains first flush and more normal fruits second flush?

If this is a monoculture you will never get spores. The chances that the genetics are broken is high, and thus unlikely that it will spontaneously repair the ability to form spore producing structures

I agree, and is why I suggested stressing the culture through abnormal conditions to try and pull out some latent genetics.

While i dont think this culture by itself will ever sporeulate by itself a similar mutant might.

Have you thought of introducing the genes to spore into its dna? That seems like the way to go.

I hate to the debby downer but i dont think the same culture will just throw out spores one day.


Im not hating on the project i want yall to get it cause ya know whole new sp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thats some next level science shit.
With this im just spit balling ideas this is beyond my experience by a long shot.

This thread just confused me... I was told that “Enigma” is the cross of B+ and PE


A couple months ago someone sent me a swab labeled “PE Tidalwave”


Did the names just change over the past couple years? Just curious. Either way,, AWESOME THREAD and we need more pics!!!lol

The myc in that last one is awesome.

I think tidal wave was the cross and then enigma/braniac or whatever other names are the fin and blob mutations that showed up and people cultured.

Whatever the case it’s a really cool mushroom.

Enigma isn’t a variety in the sense that it’s sterile and all cultures of it you see are the same clone floating around. It came from the variety “tidal wave” hence the name of this thread.

New to this but obsessive so figured this info may help others who are questioning their grow or keeping track of this things progression. Very odd stuff so far. Quick write up of background but kinda irrelevant.

Experimenting with “tidal wave,” started with MS that was labeled unstable Tidal Wave  and have been messing around with it from there. (Tidal Wave, ksss, and ATL#7 all started from MS but different sources) All MS were used to innoc RBS 1lb bags (4 bags each) and a quart of dexLC each. and all LCs after incubation were used to noc 2lb RBS bags. The wave was first to colonize substrates in all bags by a significantly margin and once move to bulk was even more aggressive. Hit a bunch of jars with the LC based on this for bulk grow but still ran controls with others.

Tidal Wave 2lb rbs spawn +  5lb sub colonized in myco bag then moved to a dub tub to fruit

Side view day 3 Fc



View from above day 5 and then harvested due to browning. Tore a piece in half and it was mushroom tissue surrounded by thin myc looked like chicken nugs from outside



Chicky Nugz



Agar dish w/ tissue from FC day 3 - pic taken 8/14



Second flush attempt in progress - day 5 (today) after first harvest (stripped the sub at harvest and moved bottom tub with sub to greenhouse




66qt tub mixed the day of first harvest with 6qts rbs TW and 10lbs sub - day 5 today, (this stuff moves fast)



Wish I had something insightful to say.. Regardless, this stuff has been extremely interesting to mess with and I see a lot of after pics so I am at a loss for what I’m dealing with. I’m going to push these two tubs to see what’s up, looks like some pinning on the small 2nd flush tub.

Still playing with this Tidal Wave clone tho

I have no experience with enigma (yet). But I would assume they are pretty potent. They come from a PE cross.

I have some enigma spawn that just got a shake. I will hopefully be spawning a couple tubs in about a week. Super stoked!

Was the colonization time for your spawn exceptionally slow or pretty average?

Glad too see she is making her rounds and finding capable hands! Good looking fruits!

Hi,

You mentioned that you added a string of green LED's to the martha because of this great article on the effects of monochromatic LED lighting but when I read the article the article concluded that BLUE LED lights were more beneficial: "The commercial yields of plants subjected to blue and green LED treatment were similar to those of the control. In conclusion, cultivation of H. marmoreus coupled with exposure to blue LED is useful for inducing high quality fruit bodies as well as higher levels of ergosterol".  Newbie here so am I missing something?  Thanks!

I’ve been using LED lights in my fruiting chamber and found that the same full spectrum that works for plants works good for mushrooms. I use a screw in grow light bulb from one of the big box stores it was less than $20 and it seem to get larger flushes than with fluorescent. To get some extra blue I put a piece of paper on top of my FC and draw some waves with the blue sharpie and a little more blue light filters through!

Hello everyone. It's cool to see people kept going with the weird little mutant. Any current updates on where things have gone with it?

In another thread earlier today an interesting idea was pitched while discussing a supposed revert of Enigma.

The OP shows an enigma grow that also has cascading pinsets (almost like the fins/brains from enigma continued growing into full pins rather than staying as folds).

In this thread a few users, including me, were interested in whether Enigma has been sequenced before.  One of the characteristics that a few people pointed out is the superficial similarity to cancer growth patterns and whether Enigma could be some kind of a cancer-like mutation.

Has this type of idea been considered before, or is there an easy way to disprove this idea?  I found it really curious.

The OP in the referenced thread ended up clarifying that it's not an Enigma that was growing in the tub to begin with, it was an honest ID mistake.

What looked like abnormally-cascading cube growth was actually clusters of velvet pioppinis (lol).

I'm guessing if someone were to try sequencing Enigma, it would probably come back as a cube, right?  It's just a very odd and very specific mutation of psilocybe cubensis.  Is there a reason to believe it might be genetically discrete?

Since I had to just had to deal with yet another user asking me for the name of who I originally got this mutation from, then had deal with him calling me a liar about the culture I grew after I wouldn't tell him the name, let me be clear to everyone... I do NOT name names, ever! Don't even bother asking me. And tbh, don't bother PM'ing me about this mutation either. It's been 4 years since I grew it, and the cliquey group still hasn't had ANY success at all in stabilizing the mutation into an actual strain. In fact, it has just mutated more due to senescence and now doesn't even make the cool fins.  It is still, and always will be just a potent TIDALWAVE blob undeserving of it's own strain-name, even if the progenitors lie to the community and try to call it a PE cross because they don't what it associated with the person who created the Tidalwave strain.
:nofuckyouthough:


Mods: If you see this, please lock the comments on this thread. I don't want to erase it because it was the first thread on the mutation. But I am SOOO over it and have no intention of ever mentioning, discussing, or reading about this community-wide failed attempt at a stabilized strain again.

Fuck "Enigma", and everyone that brought dumbass high school drama bullshit to me over it!
