Albino Penis Envy (APE) Spore Swab Pack
If you want to buy Albino Penis Envy spore swabs, be cautious as there Albino Penis Envy strain is considered “Active spores” which are for microscopy or artistic purposes. We will not complete your order if you contact us regarding the cultivation of active spores. Similarly, for legal reasons if you mention cultivation of these spores or ask for cultivating advice, you will be subsequently banned from the site.
These spores are from a species that produces psilocybin and psilocin. For legal reasons can only ship to 47 out of the 50 United States. Shipping is unavailable to California, Idaho, and Georgia.
Sonoran Spores acquires these spores and photos from outside, trusted sources in a legal manner. Further, Sonoran Spores does not condone or participate in the cultivation of psilocybin/psilocin producing or “active” species. Sonoran Spores also does not have any mycelium or fruiting bodies of psilocybin and psilocin producing species. We will not sell any products containing this so do not ask.
Spore Visibility Disclaimer: When you buy APE swabs, visibility is dependent on the characteristics of the spores themselves. As a result, not all spore swabs will look the same visually. All swabs are unique and may not look identical to each other or the picture above. Despite these visible differences, spore swabs are still viable for microscopy research.
Albino Penis Envy Spores Information
Albino Penis Envy is a hybrid between Penis Envy and Albino PF. It is a true albino, meaning it lacks all color pigments, even down to the spores. It often bruises extremely blue, and easily on their own. The current belief is that the blue bruising is the psilocybin oxidizing and the effortless bruising may indicate it to be one the most potent Cubensis variety. But, this is just a theory from many mycologists.
A mycologist by the name of Workman introduced the Albino Penis Envy strain to the Shroomery forum. There he explains his hybridization process by saying, “This is a varietal hybrid of the Penis Envy strain and the original PF Albino selected for penis shaped caps and albinism. It is unclear if UV exposure is responsible for the original PF albinism since the mutation did appear spontaneously. But at any rate, genetic damage by UV exposure is random and is likely to cause detrimental mutations in addition to albinism. So it might be possible to create an albino Penis Envy strain with only UV exposure, but the effect would be random and would likely result in a less vigorous strain… Crossing a damaged strain like the PF albino with a healthier strain and selecting for albinism can ultimately produce a better albino strain” (Workman, 2007).

When you buy APE spores it’s important to note that because they are an albino variety, they will have transparent spores. When spores are clear they can bruise blue leading the swab to appear blue rather than clear. Once you put them under the microscope, they will be clear. The spores themselves have a subellipsoid (ellipse) shape and they are present on a 4-spored basidia. The caps are 20-30mm in diameter and have a concave shape to a little convex. The caps also rarely open, even when mature. Because of that, they are very low spore producers and it is almost impossible to get a spot print from APE.
