Trivia: The Cambodia P. cubensis mushrooms were collected by John.W.Allen near the Angkor Wat Temple in Siem Reap. These Cambodia mushrooms were found growing on brahmans (cattle) dung, were they grow big and fat mushrooms.
The Cambodian spore prints are made on sterile foil which is stored in sterile ziplock bag and kept under refrigerated conditions. Each spore print can have a tiny scratch of spores removed from the print. With this swab a test run on agar or liquid culture is made to check the conditions of the spores. Only spores that germinate are released as a print.
Store the Cambodian Spore print refrigerated between 2*C-8*C Celsius or 35*F-46*F Fahrenheit. A mushroom spore print can be stored for years.
P.cubensis may be the most popular hallucinogenic mushroom in the world. It’s what’s usually meant by phrases like “magic mushrooms” and “shrooms,” and its pale brown caps and webby partial veil grace much trip-inspired art. There are other active mushrooms—dozens of other Psilocybes, plus some Amanitas (these contain moscimol, rather than psilocybin, and therefore produce very different effects)–but P. cubensis grows wild almost world-wide and has been developed into many cultivated strains.
One of these strains is Cambodian[i], which is, indeed, from Cambodia. Reportedly it was a natural variation discovered growing wild near the famous Angkor Wat, collected, and then cultivated. It is known for its rapid colonization and growth as well as its energetic, creative high.
