PES Amazonian (PESA) Spore Swab Pack
If you want to buy PES Amazonian spore swabs, be cautious as PES Amazonian 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 PES Amazonian 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.
Upon discovery, PESA was growing deep in the Amazon Rainforest. Researchers collected samples and brought them back to the PES lab. PES stands for Pacifica Exotica Spora, which is a spore/mycology company based out of Hawaii. PES is no longer around, unfortunately. We can thank PES for developing PES Amazonian genetics and some others you may be familiar with, such as PES Hawaiian. Many view these two varieties as sister strains as they both came from the same group.
When PES Amazonian first hit the mycology scene, they were thought to be related to Azurescens. It was even advertised by PES as a Cubensis x Azurescens hybrid when it became available. However, that is untrue- it is 100% Cubensis. Something that is interesting about this variety is how easily and quickly it bruises. In nature, they will bruise a dark blue within seconds at the slightest disturbance.
Let’s not forget that many regard this strain as one of the best varieties to study for those who are just starting out in the hobby. When observing the spores, you can find them quickly and you can see how robust they are. While growing in nature, they have a denser mycelial mat than the average Cubensis. They also produce medium to large sized fruits, but in large quantities.
