The Lipa Yai strain is similar to the Koh Samui strain in the fact it is a fast colonizer, is said to be strongly resistant to contamination, fruits very easy and fast, and is very potent for a cubensis. The big difference between the two is that the Lipa Yai grows taller and produces a lighter cap. The Koh Samui tends to produce smaller, yet very thick stemmed and large caps, while the Lipa Yai grows taller, semi-thick stems, and semi-large cap. This is a very popular strain for a good reason. You can never have too many thai strains in your microscopy arsenal.
