This classic strain has been in circulation for quite a few years now and we've always been pleased with it's performance on cased grain and rice flour cakes.

Even under less thanoptimal conditions this strain is able to produce an adundance of medium to large sized mushrooms.


Although it is not as fast fruiting as the more slender stemmed Equador and Cambodia strain the size of the fruitbodies more than makes up for this.


Fruit bodies in later flushes can get massive in size. The name 'Golden Teacher' refers to the golden color of the caps and stems and the way it teaches people about spore microscopy.


Growth parameters

Fruiting substrate: Grain, compost, pasteurised dung & straw, riceflour cakes
Spawn substrate: Grain Colonisation temperature: 28-30°C
Cropping temperature: 23-26°C


This is a wonderful and unique strain that produces very large fruitb odies that are considered to be very potent for a P.cubensis strain. It's ability to produce larger than normal fruit bodies is balanced by it's limited number that it yields.


However, the overall yield ends up equal since one of these Golden Teacher's can grow larger than 3 or 4 other P.cubensis strains fruit bodies.


Golden Teacher's tend to be a little picky when finding a good mate after inoculation which could result in some uncolonized jars of substrate, but once it finds agood match then it will be a very good one that you can count on producing impressive text-book quality fruit bodies that are larger than usual in size.


It's worth mentioning that these GTs are some of the best mushrooms to be experienced by those interested in their innate qualities.
