Magic Mushroom spore print | Goliath Copelandia | panaeolus cyanescens
This panaeolus cyanescens deserves its strain name “Goliath” for clear reasons: The mushrooms grow tall and the hats are very broad and wide. The meaty flesh of the fruits makes that the potency is very high, also in the fresh weight. Just like other p. cyanescens, the Goliath prefers cow dung to grow, but horse manure also works very well. Also ‘cubsensis‘ TEKS can work, but these will make the Goliath apear more as many ‘Davids‘: Small, plentiful and powerful.
