Allen strain
    #4309162 - 06/17/05 11:08 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I'd like to hear from anyone who's had any experience with the Allen strain.  My friend has some growing off cakes in a Rubbermaid with perlite chamber.  They are very small & thin & there is hardly any bluing when they are picked.  They haven't been bioassayed yet.  :doh:

how often are you misting and fanning?

Cakes are probably the culprit for small/thin/weak shrooms.

Allen is a vary nice strain, tho  small,even grown on cow manure and straw,  only get about 4" tall. but sure pak-a punch :grin:
bluing is not a good indicator IMO.

He has been fanning 3-4 x day & misting daily with H2O2 & H2O mixed. The chamber is showing 90 -95% RH. Humidity not much of a problem around here this time of year due to subtropical climate. Have had good success with EQ, Mazatapec using sametek.

The largest cap has been approx. 2 cm. diam. with stem about 4-5 cm. & rather skinny. So far we've got about 8.5 G dried off of 5 cakes. He's still getting a few - about 3-4 small ones per day off of the 3 cakes that are left. 2 were thrown out due to contam. He did cold shock a couple of the cakes - hard to say if it really did any good. In contrast, he got 15 G dried off of 5 Mazatapec cakes & had some huge shrooms off some EQ - 1 weighed in @ 1G dried! Maybe Allens do better on casing. These spores also came from Ralph. BTW, have yours been bioassayed yet? I'm very curious as to the lack of bluing.

ya ive eaten some wet about 2/3 weeks ago about an oz wet, and ate 4g dried there saturday.. they dont give me the effects that im looking for but they do fuck you up:) more of a body/closed eye visual. im looking for a strain that melts your brain.. got some bht, cams and F+ colonizing now... hopefully one of them will do it.. heres a pic of one of my "big ones" from my flush.. this is the average size of "big ones" ive been getting from the allen strain (usuly 1 each flush) its about 5" long and the cap is about 2" round.. they ususly weigh out about 14 gr wet

the only allen ive fruited was just a half pint cased.i assumed the skinny fruits were because of the thin substrate. kind of makes me feel better about it. good strain though, very potent and an abundant fruiter. check it out. i had two flushes like this and a couple smaller flushes just off this half pint

Exactly how long did it take for you to incubate the Allen strain and how long was it from start to fihish for the strain?

punchline, welcome to the shroomery. With a little bit of searching you'll find everything you could ever need to know about mushrooms. However.. be careful when responding to threads from searching or from the related threads function, because they might turn out to be old and dead. Like this one. It's about 8 months dead.

And incubation times depend on the substrate and the temp they're incubated at moreso than the strain.
