    Hello,

    Has anyone tried Fungi Perfecti's "Solistice" strain? FP claim it matures and fruits in 42 days!

    Yeah, haven't tried this one either. Most FP strains that I have tried have been pretty mediocre. That would be awesome though. Would that be fully browned at 42 days (rhetorical question)?

    No I have not tried it as buying from the US and shipping to Malta is already a risk in itself, and the culture is not cheap. I was thinking that if someone has it I could give it a try.
    Have you guys tried the 3790 strain by any chance?

    Not that one. 3782 is a champ though.

    It is, I cannot deny it however it takes awfully long to brown. I was looking for something that browns quicker.
