How to grow Penis Envy Mushrooms
Penis envy mushrooms are the result of a recessive genetic mutation. In the Jamaican and European labs where this strain is frequently (and legally) cultivated, it has been observed that these unique mushrooms can actually “revert” back to basically a regular-looking cubensis mushroom.
What does this mean in layman’s terms?
The subject mushroom lost a copy of the mutation on the DNA allele, meaning the subject is still halfway penis envy, but the mutation is not physically apparent until the subject has both copies of the mutation on the same allele. When this happens the mushroom is still technically “mutated,” but does not express the mutation visually. This type of mutation is called heterozygous, as opposed to a homozygous mutation. In a homozygous mutation, the genetic traits are able to be visually expressed.
