History of the A+ Strain Mushroom
A+ was “developed” — or introduced — by Shroomery.org user, Mr. G, but it’s unclear. whether he discovered the strain or where exactly he found it. But, this strain thrives in more tropical or subtropical growing. conditions and likely comes from either a South American strain. or Southeast Asian Psilocybe cubensis strain.
Even with a blurry history, this is a fantastic strain for anyone wanting a mushroom. of above-average potency that has the potential to produce good yields.
A+ Strain Potency & Psilocybin Content
Expect above average potency from this strain — somewhere in the range of 0.70% and 1.00% total tryptamines.
We don’t currently have specific analytical date for this mushroom strain. but there is some analysis of the closely-related albino version (AA+).
A grower named “Blackstar Mycology” entered a sample of the albino. A+ strain into the 2021 Oakland Hyphae Psilocybin Cup. The tests indicated a total tryptamine level of 0.83% which places it above average potency.
This puts the strain on a similar level as other Psilocybe cubensis mushrooms. such as Golden Teacher, Treasure Coast, Malabar, and Blue Meanies.
These numbers fluctuate depending on the conditions. the mushrooms grow in (this goes for all strains).
Mushrooms grown in perfect conditions will give a higher yield and potency. But, if the mushrooms experience issues during colonization and fruiting. psilocybin levels and yield can be affect.
Where to Buy A+ Strain Spores
A-Strain is popular among the mushroom community, and its spores are disperse. throughout Canada the United States, and Europe. Spore samples are available from most. established vendors in spore syringes, prints, and, live cultures.
Some vendors may also stock ready-to-grow kits. with everything you need to grow A-Strain — including the spores.
If you’re in Canada, you’ll find A-Strain spores at Sporeslab under the label “A+.” The Albino variety (AA+) is also available for Canadian shipping from Spores101.
If you’re living in the United States, spores are available from most vendors. Ralphsters Spores, Sporeworks, and Spores101 are the most established.
In the UK and mainland Europe, A-Strain spores are available from. The Magic Mushroom Shop in spore prints rather than syringes. Spore syringes are available from Magical Spores ( Viking Spores).
How to Grow the A-Strain Mushroom
A-strain can be cultivate like any other Psilocybe mushroom. But, being a subtropical strain, you’ll see the best results in a warmer growing environment.
Most varieties of Psilocybe cubensis fruit best at temperatures between. 74℉ to 77℉ (23℃ to 25℃), but A-strain prefers temperatures of 79℉ to 82℉ (26℃ to 28℃). Using a heat mat is the best way to achieve these temperatures. and stabilize the growing environment.
A-strain is contamination resistant. But, the increased fruiting temperatures provide the perfect. conditions for bacterial growth that can result in mold. this could be why some struggle to produce more than three healthy flushes.
Keep everything as sterile as possible throughout the growing. process when growing this strain. If you’re unsure of how to do this — or have questions on any other. steps of the cultivation process — read through this mushroom cultivation guide.
a growing medium, A-Strain does best in the grain rye grain. That said, many cultivators have produced good results from BRF cakes, flax seed. and a mix of coco fiber and Vermiculite.
Some have reported slower development and growth from A-Strain than similar strains. The colonization phase can take up to 50% longer than strains such as Golden Teacher.
Fruiting in the first flush can also be delaye. with production being sparse of fruiting bodies. But, this usually improves in the second and third flushes.
Similar Strains to A+ Strain
The A+ Strain is a stable strain when grown under the right conditions. and several large uniform mushrooms can be produce over many flushes.
What is the a+ strain?
The A+ strain (sometimes called A-strain) was develope. by Mr. G — an infamous mushroom breeder and Shroomery user. He’s also credited with the B+ strain. You can also find an albino version of the A+ strain. This strain known for its large mushrooms with a pale yellow cap and heavy spore production.
Where can I find a strain spores?
A-Strain is popular among the mushroom community, and its spores are disperse. throughout Canada, the United States, and Europe. Spore samples are available from most established vendors. in spore syringes, prints, and, live cultures.
