What does "B+" mean when used in reference to spores?

Taken from the Hawks Eye;

The infamous B+ strain of cubensis... what a chameleon this one is. This is by far the most versatile cubensis -Clyde- has ever seen. Adapting and growing in such a wide range of temperature conditions and substrates. It truly thrives to spread its seed, which by the way its a very heavy spore depositor. Not only does it grow easily indoors, -Clyde- has seen the B+ fruit outdoors several times in a wide range of temps and substrates. Several times one winter, night time low of 45F, day high of 60F, the B+ just flourished. Spring/summer, low of 75F, high of 90F, the B+ once again fruited beautifully. -Clyde- has seen it grow on alder wood, compost, straw,dung,rice, and it especially loves bird/finch seed. We've heard so many good reports back from growers in Amsterdam that just love this mushroom and how easy it grows, and how beautiful it is, its loved by many.

Although the B+ is not a super fast colonizer, its speed is average, producing some very large mushrooms that are generally a caramel color. Grown in cooler temperatures, it usually always produces a very beautiful color caramel cap and stems. The stems are generally very thick, and it produces some large caps. It also drops a very thick veil. Grown in warmer temps, its color changes to a more golden color at times.

The B+ cubensis has been around for a while. It was brought to us by a growner that went by Mr. G. There was a lot of controversy surrounding this mushroom for so long because Mr. G started off by telling everyone it was an azure/cubensis hybrid. Although at times it does grow some broadly umbonate caps like p. azurescens, it is just a unique cubensis. But a huge thanks to Mr. G, where ever you are these days, for bringing us such a beautiful mushroom. We like to refer to this one as "super strain". It really is a superior cubensis in many ways.
This is a Hawk's Eye favorite and belongs in everyone spore collection!

The B+ is particularly known for its large fruits.

It has been the subject of a few comments about dud batches though with average potency. Could be nothing but I do remember a few people expressing that.

i think the b+ is for average. it produces nice fruits, yet is not as potent as alot of other strains. from what ive heard this strain produces large fruits but are just as potent as smaller ones of more potent strains, because of excessive water content.

maybe im just a drunk asshole and this doesnt make sense.

It's just a name, it has little or no significance. Unlike aussie or oaxacan or cambodian, which are named for the regions they came from, for example. I bet the same with the F+, it's likely a modified or specialized strain related to B+ somehow, but otherwise the name means nothing. Seriously.

Ok.......this ain't my thread, but now that it's here.......

In my >40 years of circling the sun, I have found that all names have a meaning.......like the president......Bush means Pussy.......for example, as you stated 'the region of their origin'.........

So with all this assumed.......will someone who "really" knows... answer this question........

Why do they call it B+.......or F+........for that matter?

peace

I think F+ came after B+... and I think B+ was given its name because it is a good, but not perfect cube. B+ is very n00b friendly, but it stalls a lot and some people (not I) say it seems less potent.

Ultimately B+ is called B+ because as a cube, that's what grade it'd get. Better than most, better than average... still, not perfect.

As for F+... I imagine once there was a B+ cube, it was only a matter of time before an F+ was introduced.

B+ was named by MR. G for supposedly being Bigger than normal.

Whatever, it's one of my all time favorites.

F+ was named by "Joshua" after he held a contest to decide the name.

Before the contest was settled, it was known as "Florida White".

I hate the name F+ (as I've said all along) because it such a good strain that it deserves far better than a failing grade.

Since Joshua was the one who developed the strain, he had the right to name it.

I call it "Florida +".

and on a side note.

TLG was the first vendor to offer the strain known as the "Florida Plus" for public sale.

Same with the "Allen Strain".

B+ and F+ are not grades.

My understanding is that B+ is a lab designation. When Mr. G was isolating the strain he named the various isolates A, B, C..and so on. He then indicated the better isolates with a +...in the end it was B+ that won out over the other strains. This is similar to Mexicana A v. Mexicana B.

F+ was chosen by vote. Florida White was suggested by a user after I sent one of the first prints to him, except he called it Floriduh White. The strain was originally called Un Id or UnId before I held a contest to have it named. In this contest I asked for names and then held a vote for which name would be the final name. F+ does alude to the strains origins, from the feilds of Florida. The + signifies the "so much more" that this strain offers. I don't mind the name Florida + at all...it is just an extension of the F+ name.
