Psilocybe Cubensis, Penis Envy (PE)


Mush Zombie

Recommended Posts

Mush Zombie

"Penis Envy" is one of the most popular strains of mushrooms that are grown, to date. PE is characterized by its strange appearance, with a dense, bulbous, and wrinkly stipe, and a cap that doesnt open very much. It tends to look like a mushroom penis. However, it is an aggressive fruiter, producing some monsters in later flushes. PE is certainly no slouch.

 

The only downside to PE is, with some substrains, it is hard to colloect spores, as this mushroom does not release spores in a normal way. You have to use an alternate method, to collect the spores, in which one must swab the gills with a sterile q-tip. This strain's history is shrouded in mystery, and rumors of betrayl and murder. No one really knows where, or how PE came about, but everyone knows, PE is a must have for anyone who loves Psilocybe Cubensis. Growth Parameters are the same as any Psilocybe Cubensis, but harvesting is bit different. Once the caps break thier veil, they are not ready to be harvest, like other strains of Psilocybe Cubensis. You will need to wait about 3-5 days, after the veil is torn for mature mushrooms. Also, these mushrooms do not do well on cakes. They are best suited using a bulk application.

Penis Envy is the cubensis growers dream due to the weight and potency of the mushroom! Plus, they tend to pull out of the substrate a lot easier than other cubensis so you don't have to decimate your casing or substrate pulling out a monstrous flush.

PE is the only one I bother growing anymore. As MZ stated above harvesting is different than regular cubes. I pick when either of these conditions are evident, The stems turn from a creamy tan to a whitish blue color, the edges of the caps turn up and or have a blueish green tint. This is the one strain that just seems to love growing in bags as well.

They look like pe to me I could have it mixed up I will know in a few days what's what when they all start but I could have gotten them mixed up with so many cakes ready at once I got 4 strains pe, Amazonian,Golden teacher, and Burma I just figured they were penis envy cause they resemble them

Is there a way to mark ur cakes cause I've had 2 ready of each kind like everyday there all in together and really see no reason to separate them

I've had really good luck with inculcation and colonization I'm doing fairly well I want to start mono tubs my next grow. I have coir and verm and I ordered rye berrys is there a better method

Use separate tubs or soak some colored map pins in alcohol then stick the cakes and color code them.

They are normal cubensis . It is either a mislabeled syringe or mislabeled jar

Sorry to jump on a super old thread but have you guys ever noticed/thought that PE may take longer to pin than other varieties of cube? @Mush Zombie

@mushmouth 3 weeks for definable, recognizable pins. At 2.5wks I had aborting “blobs”.. very peculiar.

First time trying this variety. Cool to see how different they perform than other varieties but definitely reminded me that patience is extremely necessary with myco-hobby lol

2-1/2 weeks?!?! You must've been cussing like a muv hahaa!!!

I had a problem with blobs in an APE grow. It definitely seemed to slow things down, even with the longer wait time.

Any pics of the grow?

Holly hell!!! I probably would've kicked it.

How long with other cubes? I'm getting pins in 8 days usually.

I’ve had regular cubes pin in as short as 5 days and take as long as 14 days.

I think its relevant to the incubation time period..  I always let mine go 14 days, some people do 10 days... I general get pins In 5 days....   but some one incubating for 10 days that have pins on day 9  is pretty much the same  .......   See what im getting at ? lol.
