Our Spore syringe microscopy kit includes 10ml of authentic Hero spores in a syringe, individually packaged, with a sterile needle included. Sales will be declined to Idaho, Georgia, and California.
Spores are intended ONLY for microscopy and taxonomy purposes. The images shown are informational only and originate from other cultivators and labs outside the USA. Cultivation is illegal in many countries including the United States. The purpose of this site is not to grow psilocybin mushrooms.
We’re so proud to finally introduce the very first Quality Spores cross strain—this exclusive spore strain cannot be found anywhere else… because we made it ourselves! This marvel of mycology is a cross between the world-famous Penis Envy spore strain and the “ultra performing” Amazonian spore strain.
Let’s dig into what you can expect when you get this unique hybrid under your microscope.
Why We Chose to Cross The Penis Envy and Amazonian Spore Strains
As you no doubt already know, there are so many different strains of psilocybin mushroom spores—here at Quality Spores alone we carry dozens of different varieties. So why cross Penis Envy and Amazonian?
First, a little background on these strains.
Penis Envy is, of course, one of the most desirable cubensis strains for both amateur microscopists and mycologists alike. These spores are so fun to work with in the lab and to study, not just because of their unique attributes—we’ll get to that in a moment—but thanks to their unique history.
Legend has it that Penis Envy is the very psilocybin-rich mushroom strain that Terence McKenna discovered in the Amazon rain forest. The late McKenna was a noteworthy ethnobotanist, author, and psychedelic advocate. His contribution to the world of psilocybin are so numerous that we’ve mentioned him a few times around the site and on our blog, The Psilocybe Philosophy.
When one studies the spores discovered by McKenna, they offer what one might describe as an incredibly potent educational experience. The humorous name comes from their undeniably phallic appearance.
The second star of the “Hero” show are Amazonian psilocybin mushroom spores. Hailing from the Amazon rain forest as well, this particular strain was the natural choice to cross with Penis Envy. In the wild, the fungi tends to cultivate quickly, yield multiple large flushes, and has a natural resistance to contamination.
Deep in the Amazon, Biodiversity Leads to Competition – Fungi Must Be STRONG to Survive
As you can no doubt imagine, the Amazon rain forest is a competitive environment to live in for any organism, and fungi are no different. This region of the world has the most biodiversity on the face of the earth, so to survive, you have to be strong—and both Penis Envy and Amazonian are very tough and contaminant-resistant as a result.
Bringing these two forces together in our cross strain Hero has made for an incredibly robust spore strain that any microscopist will have a joy working with in the lab. And when it’s time to study—well, let’s just say that you won’t be disappointed.
