Mckennaii Spore Information

Terence McKenna is one of, if not the, most famous enthobotanist ever. His contributions to the mushroom community have allowed it to be as big and wide spread as it is today. And though he is not the founder of this cubensis variety, it appeared shortly after his death. Many stories circulate about how this strain came about, but one thing is certain its name is to honor this great man.

The story behind McKennaii mushroom are not the only beautiful thing about this cubensis mushroom variety. It can grow big and tall with a fat stem or can sometimes be smaller in size. Regardless, the caps tend to have a unique shape of large and hemispherical. As it matures it rips away from its veil and slightly expands. The colors are darker on the cap with a golden brown hue, while the stems are a mix of white and brown.

Overall, this is an interesting cubensis vareity that many microscopist would be lucky to have. So whether you are trying to honor Terence McKenna, or you’re just looking for something new to study these spores are for you!
