If you want to buy quality Luecistic Ecuadorian swabs, be cautious as they 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 Leucistic Ecuadorian swabs, 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.

Leucistic Ecuadorian Mushroom Information

Leucistic mutations are fairly common amongst cubensis mushroom varieties. This specific one was a mutation of the Ecuadorian variety. Leucisitc mutation cause specimens to be white in color. But unlike albinos their spores do still contain pigment. Once viewed under the microscope you can see they are the standard normal/black color. This is great for researchers looking to view something unique underneath the microscope.

Ecuador is a high altitude country surrounded by large mountain range and volcanoes. Here people discovered a variety on a mountain top in over 3,300ft (1100m) high. It is another classic P. Cubensis variety and is very durable, as proved by its discovery at such a high altitude. Furthermore, scientist know this strain to withstand very low and thin oxygen levels. This is unlike many other types of mushrooms or even organisms for that matter. This contributes to their reputation of being a very hardy variety to add to your library.

Because these mushrooms natural environment is harsh and rugged, the spores are more resilient than most. Making it good for beginner microscopist who are getting used to handling spores. Its resilience also becomes evident in the mushroom as its mycelium moves quickly and with aggression.
Ecuadorian mushrooms grow to be a large 10-12 cm with beautiful caramel brown caps. These caps connect to dense white stems that bruise a deep blue when touched. As the convex cap matures it exposes its gills and releases its spores. Scientist know this variety to produce many spores. 
It’s important to note that this strains resilience will also posse some difficulties. They will have unique spore traits when viewed with the microscope. These characteristics may be better for intermediate microscopist, but are well worth the learning experience

Additional information


Subtropical. These mushrooms are known to thrive in subtropical climates places where summers get hot and humid, and the winters are mild. Usually these climates are found between the latitudes of 25 degrees and 35 degrees and the southeast side of all continents.


Medium Depositor Specimens that produce nice medium sized prints averaging around 50mm give or take 10mm. Spore deposits may vary but average will be a nice visible print containing hundreds of millions of spores.
