Mushroom Spore swabs are sterile cotton swabs that contain spores for microscopy use only.
Strain origin – This Squat Mac comes from an original line of melmak pe. Isolation was originally started by Mindful Myconaught. Later stabilized by Basidium Equilibrium. The squat Mac produces immensely dense even flushes of high potency fruits. If you are getting into collecting or providing natural medicine in Oregon or Colorado this is surely one that is a must to add to any collection.
Melmak was formerly known as “Homestead Penis Envy” from the homestead book company. They published many very well known mycology books that are mainstream today. In the early 1980’s Rich Gee found “penis envy” from a amazon mushroom strain. Since then this variety has changed a lot with many isolation specific traits. The homestead PE or melmak is a classic version of some of the original findings. Very large, prevalent fruiting, and usually containing a greenish hue. Over the past 40 years since Rich found the original mutations, penis envy has become the ultimate strain for isolators building off his work. Offering mushroom growers kits and publishing books on fungi, the homestead book company closed its doors after 45 years of business in 2017.
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. Spore messure 7 x 12 micrometers. This variety Melmak does not typically discharge spores. But has dropped spores from time to time. Germination of spores will often be observed having clamp connections and fine feathered mycelium. Microscopes and magnification equipment is recommended for viewing microscopic features.
