Panaeolus Cyanescens “British Virgin Islands” (BVI) Spore Swab Pack


If you want to buy Panaeolus Cyanescens “British Virgin Islands” spore swabs, be cautious as Panaeolus Cyanescens “British Virgin Islands” mushroom spores are “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 cultivating active 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 they 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 Panaeolus Cyanescens “British Virgin Islands” spores, 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.

BVI Mushroom Spore Information:

This strain of Pan Cyan is known as “BVI” or “British Virgin Islands”. It also goes by the name “Tamarind Tree BVI” or “TTBVI” because this variation was first discovered amongst these islands by TamarindTreeBVI, a spore vendor who lives in the Virgin Islands. The British Virgin Islands are a group of volcanic islands in the Caribbean that are known around the world for beautiful beaches, mountains and various mushrooms.  

BVI mushrooms are captivating with elegant white stems that can grow straight up or crooked and curved. Their thin stems then lead to their small caps that start with a more ovate shape and open up with maturity. The caps also have a light yellow hue to them. The mushroom bruises a deep blue when touched, especially the caps. Like most Pan Cyan, BVI are poor spore providers, but we make sure each BVI swabs contains enough spores for easy research.  

These BVI spores are first generation (F1) from wild spore prints. This makes them similar to their wild counterparts, while being much cleaner to view under a microscope than wild BVI spores would be.

GordoTek has been doing a lot of fascinating research on this variety. In fact, in the first round of testing they found that the Pan Cyan “BVI” was the most potent Psilocybin mushroom that has ever been tested! These exciting results can be found here. Furthermore, GordoTek also won 1st and 2nd place in the Winter ‘22 Cultivar Cup using two different BVI specimens. More information on their winning specimens can be found here.
