Thai Lipa Yai

This strain comes from Lipa Yai, Thailand.
Another great psilocybe mushroom brought to us by Enthomycologist John Allen from his travels through Thailand. This fantastic species of cubensis was picked in this feild in Lipa Yai on the island of Koh Samui, Thailand. And this big beautiful buffalo is one of the benefactors that helps these wonderful mushrooms flourish all over thailand. A huge thanks again to John Allen, a.k.a. Mushroom John for taking the time to seek out these mushrooms on his travels and bringing back spore prints.
This strain of cubensis from Thailand is a another winner. The Lipa Yai strain is similar to the Koh Samui strain in the fact it is a fast colonizer, is a strong resister to contamination, fruits very easy and fast, and is very potent for a cubensis. The big difference in the 2 is that the Lipa Yai grows taller and produces a lighter cap. The Koh Samui tends to produce smaller, yet very thick stemmmed and large caps, while the Lipa Yai grows taller, semi-thick stems, and semi-large cap. Both are excellent strains.
Like the other Thai strains, it is considered to be one of the more potent strains of the P.cubensis variety and is known to produce taller-sized fruitbodies than the Koh Samui strain, also from Thailand.
Colonization time is fast and and can result in very prolific flushes producing lots of pins at once. Like the Koh Samui Thai strains, it tends to produce the larger fruitbodies during the later flushes rather than the initial ones.
Fruitbody sizes can vary from small to large using grains or flour as a substrate, with the larger yields coming from bulk substrates such as pasteurized wheat straw or compost.
