Psilocybe cubensis „South American“

Macroscopic feat.:
  • Cap/Pileus: 25-125+ mm in diameter, hemispheric to convex to nearly plane at maturity. Dark red maturing to golden brown. Fine fibrillose veil remnants when young that soon disappear. Flesh white soon bruising bluish green.
  • Gills/Lamellae: Attachment adnate to adnexed. Grayish coloration in young fruit bodies becoming nearly black in maturity.
  • Stem/Stipe: 150-350+ mm in length. Typically equal, sometimes slightly enlarged at base, sometimes contorted. Yellowish to buff with a reflective sheen, bruising bluish, hollow. Partial veil membranous leaving a persistent membranous annulus that is well dusted with purplish brown spores even before tearing away from the cap.

Microscopic feat.:
  • Basidio/Spores: Dark purplish brown, subellipsoid, 13 by 8 micrometers on 4-spored basidia.

Discussion: Produces some very large mushrooms, and a very heavy spore depositor.
This strain is a great all around performer! Fast growth and high yielding clusters in the wild. You'll get some monsters from time to time with this strain. Rizomorphic mycelium eager to spread and caps tend to split some and this to be due to the fast growth rate of the fruits. Heavy spore depositor.

A favorite among many! The spores of this strain can produce one of the fastest growing cubensis out there. High yields, big fruits, an all around winner.

This strain comes from South America. Quick colonizer that produces mediums sized fruits. One not to miss in any true collector's library.
The South American strain was originally sold by Spore Chicks from a strain collected in Venezuela.
It tends to colonize very quickly with a dense pinset.
