Albino A+ Spore Syringes
The spores of the Albino A+ are typically dark purple to black in color, which presents a stark contrast to the pale or white coloration of the mushroom itself. They are subellipsoid (egg-shaped) in form and are produced in abundance, which can be observed when a spore print is taken.
The caps of the Albino A+ mushrooms are usually pale or white, reflecting their albino naming. They can appear somewhat translucent when fresh due to their reduced pigmentation. The caps are generally round to slightly oval in shape when young, flattening out with maturity, and can reach several inches in diameter.
The gills of Albino A+ are closely spaced and contain thousands of spores. They are initially light in color and become darker as the spores mature, eventually turning a dark purple or blackish hue. The contrast between the light-colored cap and the dark gills can be quite striking, especially in mature specimens.
These features are not only important for identification but also play a crucial role in the reproductive cycle of the fungi, with the spores being the primary means of propagation for the species.
Albino A+ Characteristics
The Albino A+ variant of Psilocybe cubensis exhibits a unique leucistic trait, characterized by partial pigmentation, unlike the completely pigment-free original Psilocybe Fanaticus (PF) Albino strain. This leucism results in a lighter coloration rather than true albinism, giving the Albino A+ its distinctive pale appearance.
Thriving in the warm and humid environments of subtropical zones, the Albino A+ favors the rich, organic material. It’s found in manure enriched soils – a testament to its adaptability and resilience. These mushrooms typically surface when the mercury hovers between 75°F and 95°F (24°C to 35°C), a temperature range that promotes the high humidity they require to prosper.
