I really like south american, really aggressive colonizer in my experience.

Ask 1000 growers, get 1000 answers. A name is name. Conditions, substrates,  strains, and you will all vary and no one can tell you how a strain is gonna react. No one even knows how EQ's grew for you. Some say they're the slowest, some the fastest. Some say they're the worst, some say theyre the best. Same with every other strain there is.

That said, I love the Z's myself overall...second fastest colonizer out of 14 strains, beaten only by Brazils...but they had some issues for me that causes me not to recommend them (low potency, TONS of aborts ect)...of course theres someone that has tried many strains and Brazils are they're favorite and they hate Z's. :shrug:

I agree

I really like them too.

Very fast colonizers!~

and only take 2 to 4 days to start to pin.

and very nice fruits.

I have some right now...on pf-cakes...going in my hydra-pod.

Go look in the Grow Log and Picture forum.

My b+ is growing like wildfire, second only to the South American.

Everywhere you read, people say B+ is a classic strain, but who the hell knows.

Pick the cooliest name.

Or do what i did, pick them from places you have actually been.

I decided to check out the strain developed by the man himself, Terence McKenna, the Penis Envy strain. They out colonized my EQ's by two weeks and are on the second flush when the EQ were on their first. Not the most prolific fruiter, but they did fruit well....very potent! Check out thehawkeseye.com for all kind of strain bios...

I'm really impressed with Peurto Rican at the moment. Blazingly fast colonization times w/ heavy rhizo action. Nice strain thus far, it seriously cooks.

It is soaked perilite...he's yankin your chain.

lolzz

just kidding.

---

The Puerto Rican is very aggressive...almost too aggressive at times.
They will rip through a casing layer...faster than another strain...IME.
When I put on a casing layer on the Puerto Ricans...I don't wait long to initiate fruiting with them.

Puerto Rican's on cakes can be very aggressive too.

What casings? There are no casings pictured on this page. The top picture is substrate colonizing which has no casing layer on yet and therefore of course shouldnt be pinning, and the bottom is a cake.

I like South American and Z's

I have had SA's colonize a half pint brf cake in 13 days. They always seem to colonize quickly.

Z's colonize about as fast, maybe a tad slower, but its very rizomorphic. Prolific fruiter too, I have had over 40 visible pins on one half pint Z cake.

Im doing all three right now.

Cambo is the slowest so far to me, but all three are winners.
