Thaitanic Research Plate (Thai Lipa Yai)


Thai Lipa Yai is a popular strain closely related to the famous Koh Samui mushroom. Both were discovered on the same Thai island, with the Lipa Yai variety spotted in the 1990s by mycologist John Allen during his travels in South East Asia. According to the people of Thailand, Lipa Yai differs from the Koh Samui variety primarily in size, with the former growing taller and sporting a lighter, somewhat sticky cap, while the latter produces shorter, thicker stems with larger caps. Additionally, the cubensis mushrooms in Thailand are abundant, likely due in part to their tendency to shed numerous spores. Among these, Thai Tanic is reputed to rank higher on the potency scale. In the wild, this strain grows dense patches of small, potent mushrooms. It is very resistant to contamination, and it is a very fast-colonizing strain. It tends to grow some very thick mushrooms with large caps. Although they do not grow really tall, they make up for height in thickness. Sometimes this species tends to grow some strangely shaped mushrooms. However, it is said the stranger they grow, the more potent they are.
