All you need to know about the B+ Magic Mushroom

All about the B+ Magic Mushroom

Ahhh the  B+, a big favorite among mycologists, let’s take a closer look at this cubensis.  


The Psilocybe cubensis species

The B+ magic mushroom is a Psilocybe cubensis, a species of psychedelic mushroom whose main active elements are psilocybin and psilocin.  

The Psilocybe cubensis species is the most well-known psilocybin mushroom because they have been widely distributed and they are easy to cultivate.  And things are even easier if you grow them with the help of magic mushrooms grow kits that will get you your B+ specimens in about 15 days. 


The story behind the B+ strain is a bit foggy, some say that a guy called Mr. G. from Florida came up with it, if you know a better story, do let us know!

Without a doubt the Bee plus is one of the largest of all cubensis mushrooms, take a look at our B+ photo gallery and see for yourself. 

When the B+ grows in cool temperatures, it will produce a color caramel cap and stems. Inversely, when growing in warmer temperatures, it will turn to a golden color.

The stems can be thick, and it produces some large caps. 

They are also known for the quality and abundance of their spores.  The B+ is a very heavy spore depositor.

Cultivation info

As with any Cubensis, sterility is the name of the game, and a B+ grow kit will go a long way in ensuring that contamination problems are minimized. 

The B+ strain is a fast-growing cubensis. It can grow from big to huge and you will notice some of the widest caps that will burst out of the grow bag.  The B+ mushrooms grow beautifully indoors, making it one of the best strains to cultivate in the comfort of your home.

The B+ magic mushroom teaches beginners the lesson of patience. Patience is a very important lesson in mycology, you have to be able to enjoy the process of growth and let nature take its course. 

The upside to the slow pace is that you will be growing large specimens of caramel / golden color.  The mushrooms can fruit up to 14 inches in length but mostly, average height will be six to eight inches with caps that can go from one to three inches.

The B+ Magic Mushroom is one of the most resilient strains.  There are many stories about people throwing the substrate in the garden, and then finding that it started growing at that same spot one year later. 

This is why the B+ strain is so popular with beginners who might overdo it with the water or contaminate their kit as they handle it improperly.   This strain quickly adapts and grows in various temperatures, conditions, and substrates.
