Ralph, question about south african?
    #2811861 - 06/20/04 09:42 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Is the "Transkei" strain, the same as the "south african", that was the monthly give away a few months ago??

Yes, Transeki is the ONLY African cube that has been discovered in the wild, it was found in South Africa... so you can rest assured, those are the spores Ralph has.

This is not entirely true cervantes. Cubensis was found in South Africa in the 1940's and was reported from there on more then a few occaisions. I do believe the south-african cubie ralph has is the trankei (could be wrong though), but there are other south african strains going around...

Agreed, I know of at least one other S. African out there.

As far as I know though, Transkei is the only one that is commercially available at this time.

That's really cool. I didn't know that. Still, I am pretty damn sure Ralph has Transeki. He started selling South African around the same time others started selling Transeki.

I swear I read something that said Transeki was the only known African cube.

The African I have is indeed the African Transkei.

I have posted on a few occasions having found other cubensis in South Africa.
Hogsback for one has a few cubensis and panaeolus.

Just a mission to hunt here as they are pretty difficult to find with our climate.
Panaeolus I will try to find asap for ya'll.

Thank you master Derrayld... that would be awesome. Hard to get African spores outside of Africa.
