Shipping is unavailable to California, Idaho, & Georgia. These 3 states strictly prohibit the possession of spores from psilocybin and psilocin producing mushroom species. We will refuse and void any orders made to these 3 states. Furthermore, any payments made for orders to CA, ID, or GA will incur a $5 cancellation fee.

When you buy Costa Rican swabs, visibility is dependent on the characteristics of the spores themselves. As a result, not all spore swabs will look the same visibly. Despite any visible differences, they are still viable for microscopy research.

Origin information

First, this variety of cubensis mushroom originated in the tropical country of Costa Rica. The discovery was at roughly 1200ft elevation in the foothills of Arenal Volcano, Costa Rica. Meaning that these spores are from an exotic and harsh environment with lots to see under the microscope. It was here at the base of the volcano that clusters of the mushroom grew.
Second, a legend states an individual named Rhino found and introduced the variety. Locals say that many of the indigenous tribes have been using these for thousands of years. As you can see a lot of mystery and hype surrounds this mushroom. We’d love to honor all these people by sharing these spores with the community. Once you buy and research you too can see what all the hype is about!
These mushrooms have medium stems that are white and lead to the small, round caps. The hemispherical caps have a second veil that rips away from the stem. But after this, the veil actually sticks to the cap, rather than on stem which is unique. Its caps colors are a golden brown tint with streaks of brown throughout. As it ages, it begins to bruise a deep blue with any touch. Costa Rican is great for beginners as its spores are relatively easy to research. Its also great for more advanced microscopist looking to add some variety to their library.
