Origin Information

This is a P. Cubensis variety that is a unique addition to any spore library. Mainly because it is both interesting and reliable under the microscope.  Don’t confuse this with the numerous other mushrooms nicknamed “blue meanie.” Such as P. Azurescens or Panaeolus Cyanescens These particular spores belong to the variety of Cubensis that many other common varieties such as “B+” and “Golden Teacher” also belong to. Blue Meanie spores are pretty popular within the microscope community, which is why we regularly stock and dedicate ourselves to keeping them in our extensive spore library.

The reason this Cubensis obtained the name “Blue Meanies,” is due to the fact that they bruise very easily. The smallest physical touch or jolt can cause blue bruising that is especially noticeable on this Cubensis strain. Most think they originate from Southern Australia, an area whose climate can sustain natural mushrooms. After this discovery, someone collected the spores and introduced the word to one of the most popular strains we have to date!

We strive to provide you with the cleanest possible products. We make and package all of the Blue Meanie spore swabs in front of Laminar Flow Hoods with HEPA filters. These HEPA filters have an efficiency rating of 99.97%. Meaning that the filter removes 99.97% of particles in the air.
