If you are looking for penis envy mushroom spores you have landed on the right page. Here at source of spores, we are experts on the penis envy strain, having over 12 years of experience working with it, and we do carry the ORIGINAL TRUE PE genetics!

Firstly, we will tell you a little about penis envy mushrooms. These mushrooms are characterized by their mutant penis like appearance. They are typically thick, gnarly stemmed mushrooms with a bulbous cap that only sometimes separates from the stem, at least with the true genetics.

Where did Penis Envy mushrooms come from?

We here at Source of Spores have seen and heard a lot of fables of how this particular strain of psilocybe cubensis originated. It is our opinion that most of them are not true.

If you look around on google, or mushroom forum websites, you will see images of mushrooms of which people are currently calling “penis envy.”

The mushrooms are usually small, and the cap fully opens like a normal cubensis that is about to drop spores. This substrain of penis envy mushrooms contains inferior genetics to this once-legendary strain! We believe this is a result of poor spore collection techniques by vendors, or either employees.

Spore vendors will often take the easy way out and only take spores from the gills of mushrooms that have open caps so that they don’t have to cut them open to get the spores. Penis envy is supposed to look similar to a penis. Have you ever seen a penis with a flat head?

Here at Source of Spores we mandate that our penis envy spores be collected only from mushrooms that do not seperate from the stipe of the mushroom. This is to pass on the original genetics of this substrain to you.

Penis Envy Mushrooms Genetics

Penis evny mushrooms are the result of a recessive genetic mutation.  In the Jamaican and European labs where this strain is frequently (and legally) cultivated, it has been observed that these unique mushrooms can actually “revert” back to basically a regular looking cubensis mushroom.

What does this mean in laymans terms?

The subject mushroom lost a copy of the mutation on the DNA allele, meaning the subject is still halfway penis envy, but the mutation is not physically apparent until the subject has both copies of the mutation on the same allele. When this happens the mushroom is still technically “mutated,” but does not express the mutation visually. This type of mutation is called heterozygous, as opposed to a homozygous mutation. In a homozygous mutation the genetic traits are able to be visually expressed.

If you are interested in this subject, and what to know more, we suggest reading about Mutations: Types and Causes.

This strain is said to be ultra potent, sometimes called the most potent of all the magic mushrooms. Some people speculate that the increased potency is because PE is a “mutant,” but the truth of the matter is simple. Penis envy is a strain that grows much slower than normal cubensis mushrooms. The result of the slower growth is a longer window of psilocybin production, thus  the mushrooms are capable of, and often do contain more psilocybin gram for gram than normal cubensis mushroom strains.


Despite many misleading and ignorant claims on a certain mushroom forum website, the spores of these mushrooms are no different than any other Cubensis strain. They are the same size, shape and color when viewed under a microscope. There is a big difference in spore production when compared to traditional Cubensis strains, however. PE does not open it’s cap in a normal way, and cannot be harvest like traditional magic mushroom spores. Therefore penis envy mushroom spores can only be purchased in a spore syringe, since it is not possible to make spore prints.
