Bad Vendor Alert
    #858392 - 09/02/02 08:26 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Well again I just received an email from a perspetive grower of edible shrooms regarding the dealings of http://petfungus.com

They are still ofering P. samuiensis spores from Thailand, a product they do not have and also check this one out from their catalogue.

"samuiensisopsis
(Western Oregon-Samuies / PNW Strain) New & Very Rare
Psy/Yel/Mild
$169.00."

Here is the accompaning photograph which is not a Psilocybe samuiensis mushroom.

this picture is from petfungus.com



This is to warn everyone that there is no such samuiensis mushroom from Western Oregon. They are basing their mushroom spore on a shrooom which they first told me was found in Eastern Oregon and now they say western Oregon.

They base their identification on a pictuere (my photograph) from Paul Stamets book Psilocybin Mushroomms of the World.

A photo pasted on page 140. Here is my picture from Pau'ls book of my samuiensis shroom which grows no higher than three inches"



notice it looks nothing like the pet fungus photo posted above. Here is another picture of the samuiensis.




Workman once grew a shroom from them and it was another species.

They raised the price from $60.00 to $160.00.

This is bs and they should be told. I email them and they have blocked my mail.

I would highly recommend to all that they should in no way contribute to these people. aND SHOULD NOT TRUST THEIR SPORE BANK.

Can you give me thier e-mail adress, i cant seem to find it :confused:

Alright so here's a list of what to mention in the e-mail
- Psilocybe samuiensis do not grow in Western Oregon
- Thier photograph of a "Psilocybe Samuiensis" is not a picture of Psilocybe samuiensis
- The price for this strain is unbelivable, nobody should pay that

Am i missing anything? Are they even selling Psilocybe samuiensis?

Here is the email.

These people call it samuiensisossop a bs name.

This is a mushroom from tropical Koh Samui Island not from Oregon.

Good eye MJ!

What a nerve, posting a price like that for ANYthing!

This is why I always recomend supporting the vendors who have shown a definate interest and knowldege of mushroom species and mycology in general. These others are fakes and a rip-off!

People will always take advantage of the uneducated. Its very sad. Think of the poor kid who is just getting into this and saves his lunch money for 8 months to buy a $160 spore print. Mj i think you can report them to an internet fraud company for false advertising, if you really feel that strongly about it.

Hello Mushroom John,

Yeah - that seems to be a load of horse crap.

..I can't believe how extensive of a spore library that is advertised either.

TThey have them all catagorized from A to Z

And they also have prints of poison mushrooms,

They also have in-active Panaeolus species..

AAnd they have also nicknamed Panaeolus fimicola "Thunder Cloud"

I mean, they have put a lot of time into the construction of their website.
-And they would probably sell an elephants butthair just to add another product to their list of about 4,000 different products to purchase for outrageous prices.

..what mushroom is that they have pictured there as the samuinesisossip?

And they also fdrop a lot of names and old outdated mushroom books as sources of credibility and endorsement.

I am going to contact Freeman Rhodes though from Lane COmmunity College. He is mentioned in the website with the other names of authors mycologists etc.


Anyway the samuiensis one is bs. I actually posted an ati-page on them but decided not to belittle my credibility by acting like Mr. G.

(not yuou but the master grower from fmfarms.com who belittles me, workman and hawk as thieves of spore strains.
