A.P.E, a very strange Mushroom

Among some of the oddest fungi to come through the Magic Myco Lab of late is the A.P.E strain. I received this culture from explore fungi  awhile back and it took quite a bit of work to clean it up and get an isolate that gave me nice specimens. This crop is actually from a mono culture and is being used in current hybrid projects. Albino Penis Envy (APE) is a very unique strain of Psilocybe Cubensis. This mushroom is a hybrid of the infamous Penis Envy, and Albino PF, and is extremely potent. However, this mushroom does not produce as well as other strains of Cubensis. The mushrooms tend to be small but very plump in stature, and slowwww to mature. The spores are hardest to harvest, as the caps rarely show their gills, and the spores are transparent . APE is known best as a “novelty mushroom.” If you can get a Live culture or clone from a nice cluster, or another mycologist, it will produce a much a better crop. Growth parameters are the same as any Psilocybe Cubensis, but this mushroom does not do well on cakes. It does best in a bulk application. Either with casing or wax paper Tek.
