Shroomery veteran RogerRabbit, "Crossed a standard PE with the Tex strain." The result was PE6.
RogerRabbit's efforts were an attempt to create a modified PE which produced more spores... but the spores were accidentally released too early... when a few prints were unintentionally mailed out, in a stack of other prints. The infamous print which lead to the public outing of this particular cube was labelled PE #6.
Here's how RogerRabbit says PE #6 came to be:
"A single sector fruiting isolate of PE, and another of TEX were placed on a petri dish with rattlesnake venom added to the agar. The snake venom helped the two dikaryotic strains share genetic information to form a third sector, which was labelled PE6. Other Isolates of the PE were labelled PE 1-7, and apparently, some of the 6, which was the cross, were in the same batch of prints. The idea was to get a good spore producing PE, but I never had time to stabilize the strain due to accidentally releasing it early. That's why sometimes they look like texans and sometimes very much like PE."
"PE 6 looks like a cross between Penis Envy and Texan"
