Texas Yellow Cap Research Plate (TYC)


This variety is related to Texas Orange Cap (TOC) and is said to be created in 1998 by an amateur mycologist. This strain is great for beginner microscopists as their spores are extremely contaminant resistant. Although they are related to the classic Texas Orange Cap strain there are some differences in the appearance mainly. They are a little taller than their TOC sibling. And like most mushrooms, they have a hemispheric cap that expands with age. Although the appearanceis different, the aggression and strength of the mycelium is very similar to TOC. But, TYC is a little more resilient in that these spores are especially great for people who are learning how to handle spores. The caps are more bright yellowish rather than the orange of the TOC.

All Research Plates are 60mm x 15mm and use an lmea recipe rigorously tested for optimal mycelium growth. All Research Plates are made to order and will take up to 10 days before it is shipment ready. If there is any issue with the quality of the plate, you have 5 days from the time it arrives to location, from the post office, to contact me, with photos, for a refund or replacement.
