Despite their popular reputation, many growers don’t know exactly what to look for in Penis Envy mushrooms.

In addition, these mushrooms take longer to colonize the substrate than other varieties.
This means that growers need to be especially careful to avoid contamination, and should plan to give them additional days to fully colonize the substrate before moving the mushrooms into the fruiting chamber.
While the spores of magic mushrooms are now illegal in the United States, their psilocybin content has health benefits. These benefits are derived from the micro-dosing of dried shrooms.
