I found this true also MZ.  MYA Just wasn't working for me, so I needed an alternative and I always did like PDA but it is very pricy on line. This was very cheap :)  Also Like the clarity of it as well

PDA also takes a lot of effort to make. You can use the hippy piss LC tek, just add 10g agar to 500 ML of the hippy piss and pressure cook

I didn't find that to be the case at all. The only possible "hard"? part was getting the starch. But it was more fun than hard IMO. No messing with boiling potatoes and all that infusion stuff. Easy Peasy :)

Not hard.. Just effort and time. With mya I just mix water karo agar and malt! I use hippy piss agar now and malt/karo for lc only. I don't peel the skin either

So, is the corn starch what I'm using when I make hippy piss?

Never made hippy piss but for LC I use just karo and distilled water. Thats whats worked for me anyway (and that is corn sugar in picture) not starch

If you have a hard time finding the ingredients for PDA just convert the hippy piss  into agar. Its very good for me. Much better than mya IMO. If I had  all the stuff for PDA I'd make it too. Its very good

      I've got mine fruiting next to my GTs hopefully they come just as beautiful!! How long did it take you to see pins on the albino? I've had mine in fruiting conditions for 3 days got some hyphal knots going but no pins yet! Good job on yours! You are now the object of my envy haha

      Hmmm... that makes sense. Wishful thinking I guess lol

      No. By breeding homozygous penis envy x homozygous penis envy would result in 100% homozygous penis envy. By breeding homozygous penis envy x  anything else would result in 100% heterozygous penis envy and 100% anything else, as long as anything else was dominant. If it was homozygous co-dominant or homozygous recessive then it would be 100% heterozygous penis envy and 100% heterozygous anything else. You would not see the mutation again until you produce more homozygous penis envy. Breeding them back to each other to strengthen it is not a real thing in genetics.

      See? I was thinking the same thing. If you could somehow breed or grow the genetics back to each other to where they both have it then take a baby from them wouldnt it no longer be recessive in the offspring? It should by logic strengthen it and cause it to become common. Then couldn't you take that gene and make it stronger until it becomes dominant?
    • Mush Zombie
      Any homozygous mutation is still a mutation. I’m not sure how to answer your second question.
