PF albino question
    #666415 - 06/06/02 07:10 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

In the PF website, it says the albino stain is sterile...... so how does PF get spores to sell?

They had backup spores from ones that were still good.

I'm not sure you got a bad syringe.

It wasn't that they were sending out bad syringes.....they were sending out syringes with spores that produced albino mushrooms.
and the albino's didn't produce spores.....and alot of people were upset.
I can't remember which strain......sorry.
so they made an announcement that they were going to replace syringes that were effected.
they have this on their site if you want to read the straight up and up.
I'm trying to tell you from what I had heard and from what I remember reading off PF's site.

PF has always had a good rep!
they will almost always take good care of you.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ok....I hate mis-information so I got this from the PF site.
here it is copy and pasted!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE ALBINO MUTANT APPEARANCE
After a few months of fruiting under the blacklights, a couple of generations went by and then the now famous PF Albinos appeared on two cakes. At first, PF didn’t know what to make of them, but soon after, PF became worried, because Albinoism is a mutation, and mutations are a very bad sign genetically. PF then put away the blacklights knowing that the albinos and the blacklights are definitely connected in that they were synchronous. PF has never seen such a thing in over a quarter of a century of shrooming, plus, PF has never used blacklights - only plant type flourescents. PF remained worried.
The genetic mutation certainly occurred at the genesis of the spores, because the mutation changed the offspring that followed. The genes were damaged permanently and passed to the progeny. There were many cakes that seemed unaffected, so the two types; the Albino mutant spores and the “normal” spore race lines were separated. But unbeknownst to PF, invisible or unapparant damage did occur to the “normal” specimens.

The damage slowly crept into the spore race lines and by mid summer of 2001, PF had the sinking feeling of empending doom. The Hawaiian and Mazatec spore races were growing on the same PF formulations and in the same terrariums, but were doing great, with the customary excellent fruitings, but the PF which fruits at least equally as well, was doing frighteningly bad with no invitro primordiation, sparse fruitings, strange looking shrooms, off colors and a tendency for sterility (no spores or few forming). And in the worst case, no fruiting at all, even though the mycelium looked healthy. This degradation happened very gradually, over a period of several months. What happened, was that after the albino appearance and the cessation of blacklight use, PF continued to use PF spore race lines emanating from UV (blacklight) exposed specimens. Soon, all the PF spores PF was getting, were descended from the exposed and apparently damaged PF shrooms from the blacklight growing time. Or, the genetically damaged lines spread and gradually became dominant, taking over the PF race lines through spore mixing and spore solution making (PF’s lab work).

PF knew exactly what to do - the obvious. PF then contacted a friend and got an old PF spore print from three years ago (not exposed to blacklight fluorescents) plus a fresh print that was propagated elsewhere. They were used with PF jars, and within two months, the proof was there. The “old” spores and the replacement spores were fruiting with total excellence - lightning fast invitro appearing and big healthy (normal) flushes. Then with the proof in hand, PF announced the replacement order policy with confidence in the PF spore race as being still one of the best there is because of its excellent PF style invitro appearance, its slow to mature growth and capacity for large meaty specimens.

So there is an answer and salvation. Unlike many other problems of living, a good outcome to a total disaster (the death of the PF spore race) is a rare and wonderful event (the return of the PF spore race). Plus, with this knowledge, anyone can become like Dr. Fungustein, and create their own PF albino mutants and God knows what else by duplicating PF’s blacklight exposure experiments.

good luck!
