Colombian Spore Swab Pack
If you want to buy quality Colombian mushroom swabs, be cautious as Colombian 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 Colombian 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.
To start this strains origin its pretty obvious that it was found first in Colombia. This is not the only strain from this region as there is another popular variety known as Columbian Rust Spores(CRS). It’s important to note that the CRS mushroom is actually a mutation from the genetics of the Colombian Mushroom. Unlike the CRS, these spores and mushrooms are lacking in that red pigment that give the “rust” part of the name. Which is great for novice microscopist, because these Colombian spores are much more prolific and beginner friendly as well.
The Colombian mushroom is one that is mycologist have admired for many years. The mushrooms boast a dense white stem that can grow tall, up to 10 cm+. On the end of the stem their is a pretty brownish-reddish cap that can be very dark or rather light. One thing that catches everyone’s attention is the caps of these mushrooms. Their caps can grow quite large, especially as they flatten with maturity. Because of this, sometimes the caps will cause the entire shroom to fall over. Bruising is common when harsh handling occurs.
In conclusion, Colombian cubensis are mushroom genetics you don’t want to miss! They offer a good introduction for beginner microscopist to the harder CRS spores. They are also the predecessor to the CRS mushroom, so you can study the effects of before and after a genetic mutation.
