Habitat: Bovine, Equine Dung and Enriched Soils
Strain Origin: Colombia, South America
Cap: 50+ mm in diameter, campanulate, golden brown to yellow. Surface dry and lacks remnants of universal veil on cap (spots). Flesh white soon bruising bluish green. The caps do not develop normally and suffer diminished spore production. Due to the fact that only 10-25% of the mushrooms produced visible spore prints and laboratories can only produce a few large specimens, spores are difficult to acquire in volume.
Stem: 125-275 mm in length, contorted often bulbous near the middle, pale yellow to buff. Flesh bruising bluish green where injured. No persistent annulus but an annular zone can be distinguished on the stems surface.
Gills: Attachment adnate to adnexed, very close, underdeveloped. Grayish coloration in young fruit bodies that darkens slightly in age.
Spores: Few but dark purplish brown in volume, subellipsoid on 4-spored basidia
Comments: Spores are from a source culture subjected to a 3+ week heat therapy regime designed to eliminate viral infections in Agaricus bisporus. Although there was no “hard” evidence that the Penis Envy strain was ever infected with a virus, the therapy appears to have had some positive effects. Unfortunately, spore production is not noticeably improved. buy mushroom spores

Mushroom spore print | mushroom spores
The mushroom spore prints are made on sterile foil which is stored in sterile ziplock bag and kept under refrigerated conditions. Each spore print can have a tiny scratch of spores removed from the print. With this swab a test run on agar or liquid culture is made to check the conditions of the spores. Only spores that germinate are released as a print.
How to store a Muhsroom spore print
Store the spore print refrigerated between 2*C-8*C Celsius or 35*F-46*F Fahrenheit. A mushroom spore print can be stored for years, whne it is cooled.mushroom spores for sale
