About Golden Teachers Mushrooms

Strain Specifications

The Golden Teacher mushroom strain is among the most popular psychedelic fungi, highly sought by shroomers and growers alike. There are a lot of many things about the Golden Teacher shrooms which contribute to their popularity. This strain of Psilocybe cubensis has an air of mystery and this is what makes this fungi so special. Golden Teachers are fairly new and they first appeared during the 1980s. The exact origins are unknown but it is highly recognizable because of its golden caps with specks of yellow. Compared to most strains of Psilocybe cubensis, Golden Teachers have larger stems and caps; and a generally more elegant appearance. The recommended dose for dried Golden Teacher mushrooms is between 1gram and 2.5grams. For most experienced shroomers, this dose may be quite small but this allows a margin of error for novice shroomers who never ingested Golden Teachers before.

Robust
One of the most robust strains of P. cubensis available. Very thick, meaty stems, dark red caps, and an often-extreme bluing reaction when the fruits are bruised are all notable characteristics of this strain. The Golden Teacher is perhaps the most robust strain of cubensis we have observed. Average mature fruit bodies reach heights of over five inches with caps often spanning two inches in diameter. The caps first appear a very dark red color, often covered in very distinct spots (remnants of the universal veil). The stalk is lightly caramel colored and very thick. It is reportedly one of the darkest bruising cubensis available, often turning dark blue or even black when cropped, cut, or bruised.

Yields
Fruits do not form as abundantly as some other strains, however the size compensates in dried weight for the lack in numbers. Second and third flush fruits can become enormous, often peaking at heights of nine inches. Average colonization times are in the 12-14 day range for 1/2 pint PF style jars. The strain performs very well both cased and uncased. This is a wonderful and unique strain that produces very large fruit bodies 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 its limited number that it yields.

Growing
However, the overall yield ends up equal since one of these GTs can grow larger than 3 or 4 other P.cubensis strains fruit bodies. GT'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 a good 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.

Worth mentioning
GTs are some of the best mushrooms to be experienced by those interested in their innate qualities.

Golden Teachers
A beuatiful cubensis that is very hardy and produces large fruits especially in later flushes. Thick meaty stalks and dark spotted caps are another characteristic of this strain. Extreme bluing reaction upon any cutting or bruising of the fruit. It's no wonder it carries the name it does. Colonization temperatures 84/86 degrees F. Fruiting temperatures 74/78 degrees F. is optimal

Golden Caps
The "golden teacher" is one of our favorites. It produces very big mushrooms. The name comes from the golden color of the caps and his skills of 'teaching'.

Golden Teacher Magic Mushrooms
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 riceflour cakes. Even under less than optimal 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. Fruitbodies 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 (Source: www.mushmush.nl)
