The Treasure Coast in Florida has a smaller but diverse mushroom-growing population. The Treasure Coast, or TC, is a region in the southeast of the U.S. state of Florida that borders the Atlantic Ocean and includes Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River Counties. They have the warm temperatures that many exotic mushrooms grow best in.
Treasure Coast is a rare species of mushrooms were found growing in cow manure. Its rarity is among the reasons why TC spores are very valuable and sought after for researchers and mycologists alike.
Treasure Coast has a golden brown cap that has a frosty white to cream-colored margin. The gills are off-white when young but darken as they mature. When viewed under the microscope, Treasure Coast spores show how closely related it is to Psilocybe Cubensis.
Treasure Coast Spores
A Treasure Coast spore under a microscope would be small, thin, and circular. They would be opaque and dark brown. The Treasure Coast spore is bioluminescent, meaning it glows a bright green color when hit with ultra-violet light. TC spores are tiny and lightweight compared to other species of mushroom spores on the market today.
Each package comes with a 10ml Luer lock syringe. The spores are placed under aseptic conditions with sterilized water before being filled into the syringe. The syringe is then sealed tightly with a cap. You will also receive a sterilized 18 gauge needle that’s 1.5 inches long. The needle has a Luer-lock tip to be attached to the syringe for easy transferring of spores.
Cultivation of mushrooms containing psilocybin is illegal in the United States. These spores are sold for microscopy and forensic purposes only. Any other use is strictly forbidden by law. As of this writing, only a few species are exempt from this rule, and Treasure Coast are not one of them.
