Arenal Volcano – Glass Slide
Mushroom Spore swabs are sterile cotton swabs that contain spores for microscopy use only. Spore prints are mushroom spores collected to foil, glass and preserved for genetic collections. Isolation culture plates are mycelium isolated to monoculture for observational purposes.
Strain origin – Costa Rican Arenal volcano is a wild Variety of cubensis. A sample was found near the side of a highway Circa 2019. Original specimen was collected from the south side of the volcano. These nearly wild Cubensis will produce Umbonate caps and even flushes. With bronze toned colors and unique structure this is a absolute must have for any collection. This is a real unique individual strain, due to its wild nature there is a massive potential to see what these genetics will do in generations to come.
Gill formation – Gills typically are medium to large, wide range of formation. Likely to have available gills for spore production.
Microscopy features – Purplish brown spores. Spores measure 7 x 12 micrometers. This variety Costa Rican Arenal Volcano cubensis discharges spores during sporulation. Spores can be printed to be observed under magnification. Germination of spores will often be observed having clamp connections and fine feathered mycelium. Microscopes and magnification equipment are recommended for viewing microscopic features.
