Texas Yellow Cap “TYC” Spore Print
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 – Texas Yellow Cap “TYC” originates in south Texas outside of Corpus Christi. Texas is a known for its high population of Cubensis mushrooms near coast humidity and plenty of cattle lands, the state provides perfect environment for mushrooms to thrive in the wild. Texas Yellow Cap was a forum strain that never saw massive spot light, but this variety is absolutely gorgeous with its rich vibrant golden caps. Texas Yellow Cap has some different variety as some cultures have shown short and stout fruit bodies while the more typical phone type tends to be tall and lanky.
Gill formation – Gills typically are medium to large, wide range of formation. Likely to have available gills for spore production. Some recent findings have observed smaller more closed gills.
Microscopy features – Purplish brown spores. Spores measure 7 x 12 micrometers. This variety Texas Yellow Cap 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.
