APE, or Albino Penis Envy, is a cultivated variety of Psilicybe cubensis, a popular microdosed "magic" mushroom. Many mushroom species have fruiting bodies that look penile, as the name implies. Their envy is not particularly strong. Penis Envy APE is a pale-capped sub-variety of Penis Envy, reputed to be one of the most powerful types of P. cubensis. Despite its rarity, ape is popular among those who can obtain it due to its difficulty in growing.
The majority of P.cubensis strains are easy to grow, but the APE strain is an exception. It rarely produces fertile spores, so other methods of propagation are usually required. Often, it does poorly on popular substrates, such as cakes, because it is particular about its food. APE is considered a novelty variety, probably not something people who grow to sell will bother with, and probably not something a beginner should try. It takes a long time to grow, and flushes tend to be small. Instead, APE is a great variety for experienced mushroom growers who are looking for a challenge and a few very potent mushrooms in the end.
APE is a sturdy fungus that can withstand conditions (such as excessive heat, such as when a heater malfunctions) that would kill almost any other crop. In addition to malformed fruiting bodies caused by poor growing conditions or residues from cleaning products, there is still a crop. It's important to pay attention to temperature and humidity and other details because APE will do better if well-cared for. Learn what the applicable law is in your area before growing or using APE, or any other hallucinogenic mushroom. Getting arrested accidentally because of ignorance is the worst outcome for people who choose to break the law for a variety of reasons.
