This is a public computer, 1,000’s of people use it everyday this isn’t me typing this. I dont even know how I got on this site, how the hell do I even work this computer.

No its not any good, because its a bullshit name made up by someone that probably sells either bunk stuff, or regular cubensis with a made up name for a high price.

If your looking for spores, check out the vendors sponsored by the shroomery. they are trusted,

How to pick a strain? stick names on a dart board , spin dart board, throw dart. (miss ouit the novelty strains like penis envy etc)

now read the stickies, and search the forums, and read.

Also www.mushroomvideos.com this will explain alot of questions you may be about to ask.

oh and read the strain thread, it should explain why strain name isnt really important

Look at your life from a different angle, or the world just eat a little more of these

sponsors do sell L K cubensis and cheap

a cube is a cube anyway.

I got an L K syringe from a sponsor its colinizing now I paid 12 bucks for it I dont think its to overpriced and seems to be doing just fine at about 90 percent after 4 weeks

ah well thats a good price for a cube syringe of spores. let us know what they turn out like, maybe theres actually a valid reason for the name (like why penis envy is called penis envy,)

“Lizard King (a.k.a. LK)
The Lizard King strain has an interesting history, and it was discovered by Lizard King who had a hand in finding several coveted Mexacanae specimens as well. Anand played a large roll in domesticating the Lizard King cube.

What makes this cube interesting is that it was found growing on a mixture of wood and horse poo. Wood is not a common substrate for wild cubes but given the right conditions cubes will grow on damn near anything.”

all it is is another cube named after the person who found it..

I had a recent grow of lizard kings that were really awesome. I don’t buy into the cube is a cube talk. Species differentiation among other mushrooms, such as the pearl oyster, has long since been accepted in the scientific community. This is based on phylogenetic analysis, DNA analysis, and other credible, legitimate scientific tests. Read this:

Evidence from molecular systematic studies
suggests that many mushroom species may be quite ancient.
Gene phylogenies were developed to examine the relationship
between reproductive isolation, genetic divergence, and biogeography
in oyster mushrooms (Plurotus). Sequence data were
obtained for two regions ofDNA from populations belonging to
eight intersterility groups (biological species). Phylogenetic
analysis of sequences from the 5′ portion of the nuclear encoded
large subunit rDNA demonstrates an ancient origin for four
intersterility groups of broad geographic distribution (worldwide),
with a more recent radiation of several intersterility
groups that are restricted to the Northern Hemisphere. An
expanded analysis using sequence data from the more variable
rDNA internal transcribed spacer region also reveals a phylogenetically
based pattern of genetic divergence associated with
allopatric speciation among populations from different continents
in the Northern Hemisphere. The ability of rDNA
sequences to resolve phylogenetic relationships among geographically
isolated populations within intersterility groups
illustrates the importance of biogeography for understanding
speciation in Pleurotus. Patterns of geographic distribution
among intersterilit groups suggest that several species lineages
evolved quite early, with recently evolved groups restricted
to the Northern Hemisphere and older lineages occurring
throughout the world. Based on phylogenetic evidence,
analysis of historical biogeography using area cladograms
shows that multiple dispersal and vicariance events are responsible
for patterns of speciation observed.
Speciation in many mushroom groups is often associated with
tremendous levels of genetic divergence that suggest an
ancient origin for some species (1). Within many mushroom
species, clear patterns of morphological and genetic divergence
among geographically distinct populations also suggest
an allopatric mode for speciation (2).
The combined study of
phylogeny and biogeography provides a framework for understanding
the relationship among different components of
evolution at the species level, including geographic variation,
genetic isolation mechanisms, and morphological evolution
(3). The recent development of rigorous molecular phylogenetic
approaches has made it possible to reexamine many
classic questions regarding the importance of biogeography
as a primary factor involved in speciation.

What this means is that strains are genetically unique. Bullshit a cube is a cube. A cube isn’t a cube. A cube originating in America will be different than one from the other side of the planet, unless it was transported there by people.

Homo sapiens are a classic example. Do asians look like africans? There are genetic predispositions to diseases more common in different ancestral groups. Some races have different enzymes than others. Ever hear of the sickle cell?

I keep meaning to ask you how those LK’s were, potency-wise. I know you said they bruise very, very blue

I don’t buy the “cube is a cube” talk either, and I think most would probably agree that substrate choice doesn’t seem to affect potency (although technically this is still up in the air) so by process of elimination, it’s genetics. I’ve always thought that PE was stronger than just about anything I had. My craziest, most visual trips have always been PE trips, with the exception of one crazy trip at the movies on Ban Phang Ka. I’m hoping LK is somewhere in there as far as wackiness goes.

Hey beer guy, I only ate one small fruit out of the tub when I harvested, and it was definitely strong. It weighed maybe 4 grams wet, and I felt staticky for about an hour. Unfortunately, I haven’t gotten around to having a full dose, so we’ll see about that. I have a higher tolerance than most, I think. I usually eat 5 grams and sit by myself in the dark listening to music and thinking. So, I think I’ll eat 4 grams and let you know.

Genetics are different in the cube strains. I’m still looking into how they name species of mushrooms, as in, why they call a Panaeolus cyanescens and Panaeolus cambodginiensis two different species. I’ll post that up when I find out.

thats a good amount of information haha. Please post any pics you may have also if anybody has taken them how potent they are.

By the way, strain discussion threads usually get locked. They have a strain thread in the archives. http://www.shroomery.org/forums/ showflat.php/Number/10560039

Anyhow, I suggest that when searching for a strain, do a search and look at people’s grows. Get a decent strain list from some place like http://www.ralphstersspores.com then search on here for the strain names.

Sweet. Ditto here, should have some of my own in about a month or so

I’ve been looking at syringes to buy and saw a strand called lizard king. Ive never heard of it and was wondering if it was any good.
