MW Fun Changes to Come! Also, No Shipping 2/10-2/14 - TODAY and TOMORROW Last Days to Order to Ship This Week! Mix-n-Match any 5 12ml Syringes for $30 with FREE SHIPPING From Over 20 Cubensis Varieties and Exotics as an Add-On! Mush Love fam <3

Hello fam! I'm so sorry this is coming with such short notice, but wanted to make a post really quick to tell you guys and gals that I'll be out of town from Monday, Feb 10 through Friday, Feb 14 to take a trip and scout out some living (and working) space and preparing to move on March 1! Any orders placed today by 3PM will still ship today, and any orders placed from 3PM Friday 2/7 through 2PM Saturday 2/8 will still ship out on Saturday. I'll be available to chat and take orders while I'm gone, but any orders placed from Feb 10 through Feb 14 will ship on Saturday Feb 15. Thanks to a few tech savvy friends, I now have a system in place to keep me more organized with inventory while I'm away, and have prepared a stock beforehand to be sure I'm ready to ship when I get back. I'm doing a lot on the back end over here to make sure I don't have to take a long break when I actually move next month, but I plan to be away from shipping from Feb 28-March 3 to get settled into the new place.
In other news, I have some really interesting varieties coming up that will be ready to ship upon my return! Cambodian, Costa Rican, Dancing Tiger, Lizard King, and a few more to follow! You can check out What's To Come and an always updated list of what's available on Millywyco and even make suggestions and requests for what you'd like to see in the future!
I'm still doing the pick 5 for $30 mix-n-match dealio as always, and have some new ones on this list as well I think you'll all enjoy :)
Much of the satisfaction I get throughout my day comes from YOU GUYS (and gals), from the positive encouragement, connections made and regular pleasant conversation. Keep sharing the recent positivity in your life, the cat facts, and warmth that's spread through this community. Be persistent, never give up and never stop learning!! I LOVE YOU ALL DEARLY <3
Please check out the updated list of inventory below. I'll make a post when I am able to get my hands on some other requested varieties, and as always, I accept trades! Feel free to send me a message if you have a request for something I do not have in stock. My wish list is your wish list! I'm sure we band together and find it if we try.
Shipping in US only at the moment, not available to ID, GA, or CA (yes, really)
Spore syringes are for microscopy use only
Any reference to cultivation will exclude you from placing an order and we may never speak again. I want to talk to you. Don't do it!
There are no exceptions to these rules. You have been warned.
PAYMENT METHODS ACCEPTED: Cash App, Venmo, Google Pay, Apple Pay, Bitcoin and Amazon gift cards
PayPal is NOT available to me at this time.
Also, I am the fee master! I get charged fees left and right that I don't pass on to you from shipping and third party payments. If you'd like to throw me a tip, however much it may be, I'd love you forever and it really does make a difference! These types of people have allowed me to share with some who are less fortunate. On the other hand, if times are tough for you right now, let's talk about it!
If you are a returning customer who has left a review, mention the secret password "BESTFRIENDSFORLIFE" for a discount!
ALL PRICES INCLUDE USPS SHIPPING WITH TRACKING!! I COVER ALL STANDARD SHIPPING COSTS.
Please add an additional $5 to any order if you prefer 2-day Tracked Priority Mail shipping. (90% of my Priority Mail shipments are 2 day. Occasionally, rural areas are 3 day)
1 syringe for $15
2 syringes for $20
5 syringes for $30
Golden Teacher (LIMITED TO 2 PER ORDER!)
A classic variety for any mycologist. Pretty standard, easy to work with and almost everyone starts here. Can't go wrong with GT! They go faaaasssst. Currently limited to 2 per order with mix-n-match due to extreme popularity.
Albino A+ (AA+)
While "true" albino's are just a mutation, this variety gets it's name from the leucistic trait of having less pigment than other varieties, appearing completely white when mature. One of the all time most popular varieties I've had the pleasure of offering!
Amazon
Originating from the Amazon rain forest, this variety is known to produce large,dense fruits in the wild, and certainly an interesting study under the scope :)
B+
Pronounced "Be Positive"!...Or at least that's what I like to say. The "+" is for the size! Looks a lot like Golden Teacher, only bigger. A favorite among beginning and advances mycologists alike and other than GT, probably the most popular variety.
Blue Meanie
This is the cubensis variety, not to be confused with Pan Cyan, the original Blue Meanie. One of my most popular varieties when it's in stock!
Chitwan
From the Chitwan jungle of Nepal, these are picture perfect under the scope.
Golden Halo
Really interesting study and you'll see why this one earns it's name. Darker on the inside, golden on the outer ring...looks like a halo!
Jedi Mind Fuck
Still haven't been able to find much info on the origin, but I have heard some interesting things about this variety.
McKennaii
Origin unknown, but holds a special place in my heart, due to being named after the late Terrence McKenna <3
Orissa India
Originally spawning from elephant dung, this is one of the largest studies under the scope.
PES Amazon
With genetics from Pacific Exotica Spora (PES), this variety has a few stories to go along with it. Really interesting study if you care to look them up, but it was originally thought to be a cubensis/azurescens hybrid, accounting for the "A" in PESA. After much controversy, most identify this variety as Amazon or Amazonian.
PES Hawaiian
One of the wider caps in the species, PES (Pacific Exotica Spora) Hawaiian are uniquely pleasant to look at under the scope. One of the quickest movers on the slide, and easily one of my favorites to study!
Red Boy
So appropriately named, this variety actually drops red spores! Super interesting study under the scope!
Rusty Whyte
Another leucistic variety, these always look super cool!
South African Transkei (SAT)
Originating near Durban on S. Africa's wild coast, these are known to be some of the first specimines brought back from Africa in 2002.
Treasure Coast
First collected in the southern Gulf Coast in Florida, earning it's name from the number of shipwrecks in the area, and perhaps one of the most resistant varieties out there!
Z-Strain
Much like Golden Teacher, but this variety seems to have some great positive characteristics that sets it aside. Very fast and aggressive under the scope, this one will not disappoint!
THE FOLLOWING EXOTICS ARE NOT PART OF THE 5/$30 MIX-n-MATCH DEALIO, but can be added to any order for $10 as an add-on. These are NOT cubensis, and NOT recommended for beginners!
****Psilocybe Azurescens***\*
Originally made popular by my favorite mycologist of all time, Paul Stamets, this is known to be the most potent of any mushroom species discovered to date. It's name comes from the bluish (Azure) tint active species get when bruised. This variety is also NOT for beginners, as it is a more difficult study and requires completely different conditions to observe on a slide.
****Psilocybe Serbica***\*
****Paneaolus Cyanescens***\*
These tiny guys pack a big punch, mostly in tropical areas. Unlike the Blue Meanie cubensis variety causing much confusion, this is the actual species also known as Blue Meanie.
****Paneaolus Cyanescens BVI (British Virgin Islands)***\*
Pan Cyan from the beautiful British Virgin Islands.
****Panaeolus Cambodginensis***\*
I will update the available list daily as I get new varieties in stock or run out. This list is updated daily, but confirm your order with me before sending payment to be sure.
All syringes are 12cc/mL and come capped with a sterile tip cap, and also include an 18ga blunt tip needle and alcohol pads. Syringes are made in a lab grade environment and the utmost care and attention is the highest priority to be sure they are sterile. Anything exposed to an open air environment is subject to contamination, but I take every precaution possible to minimize this risk. I cannot "guarantee" they are 100% sterile, but I can guarantee that if you have an issue, I will make it right. I really do love to help, and if something happens, I'd like to know about it so I can fix the issue instead of you getting frustrated or giving up!
To ensure equal quantity of spores in each syringe, and for adequate suspension of the spores in the solution, I use a magnetic stir plate. Very often, this does such a good job of breaking up clumps of spores that it will appear to be sparse. THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE! There are still a TON of spores in each syringe, even if you can't see them individually (though most of my syringes appear to have a very good amount of visible spores...even with my horrible eyesight!). You can compare and contrast to see the blackish/purple tint to ensure every syringe is packed with spores. If a spore clump forms during transportation, simply give it a good flick with your finger and vigorously shake to break it up or free it from clinging to the wall of the syringe before examining.
Syringes ship in individual bags clearly labeled as to specific variety and born on date, bubble wrapped and shipped through USPS tracked shipping (discreet) within 24 hours of payment. I send tracking info soon after payment and give updates along the (super quick) way.
Please PM me with order details, including state shipping to, payment method, and the selected syringes for your order. Any messages referring to spores being used for anything other than microscopy use will be ignored. Don't do it.
THANK YOU ALL so much again for your continued support!! I appreciate it more than you know! MUSH LOVE
P.S. In no way am I trying to be an imposter. I AM NOT WILLY MYCO. I chose this u/ a while back as sort of a play on words and tribute to a legend most of us recognize, long before I became a spore vendor. I don't want anyone to think I am trying to pass off as him, though I do strive for his level of excellence and dedication to the craft! I appreciate all of the kind words, though, from people saying they learned from "my" videos. I wish I could pass on those notes to RR himself.
Cheers and MUSH LOVE!

MW Taking Short Break to Get Settled In. Last Day to Ship 2/24! Mush Love to the Entire Myco Fam <3

Hello you beautiful souls! All of the support recently has been so so incredibly helpful, and has been keeping me extremely busy :) I'm sorry I haven't even had the time to make a post about when I will be away, and this is coming on super short notice, but I will only be taking orders through the rest of today, SUNDAY Feb. 23. I will be shipping all orders from this weekend tomorrow, Feb. 24, and will not be taking any new orders until I settle in after moving and make sure I'm ready and able to resume shipping before I make any promises on orders.
I was hoping to be able to ship until just a day or two before moving, but I now see that will hinder the process of setting up a new work space and further delay and complicate orders. Your patience and understanding means the world to me, as I'm trying to make this process as quick and smooth as possible. I'll still be able to respond to general questions and help out as much as I can during this short break, but I will not take any new orders until I'm 100% ready to ship at my new place around March 3. Be on the lookout for a new "up and running" post around that time, and more frequent updates at Millywyco in the meantime :)
I'm still doing the pick 5 for $30 mix-n-match dealio as always, and have some new ones on this list as well I think you'll all enjoy :)

Golden Teacher (LIMITED TO 2 PER ORDER!)
A classic variety for any mycologist. Pretty standard, easy to work with and almost everyone starts here. Can't go wrong with GT! They go faaaasssst. Currently limited to 2 per order with mix-n-match due to extreme popularity.
Albino A+ (AA+)
While "true" albino's are just a mutation, this variety gets it's name from the leucistic trait of having less pigment than other varieties, appearing completely white when mature. One of the all time most popular varieties I've had the pleasure of offering!
Amazon
Originating from the Amazon rain forest, this variety is known to produce large,dense fruits in the wild, and certainly an interesting study under the scope :)
B+
Pronounced "Be Positive"!...Or at least that's what I like to say. The "+" is for the size! Looks a lot like Golden Teacher, only bigger. A favorite among beginning and advances mycologists alike and other than GT, probably the most popular variety.
Blue Meanie
This is the cubensis variety, not to be confused with Pan Cyan, the original Blue Meanie. One of my most popular varieties when it's in stock!
Cambodian
Chitwan
From the Chitwan jungle of Nepal, these are picture perfect under the scope.
Golden Halo
Really interesting study and you'll see why this one earns it's name. Darker on the inside, golden on the outer ring...looks like a halo!
Jedi Mind Fuck
Still haven't been able to find much info on the origin, but I have heard some interesting things about this variety.
Lizard King
McKennaii
Origin unknown, but holds a special place in my heart, due to being named after the late Terrence McKenna <3
Orissa India
Originally spawning from elephant dung, this is one of the largest studies under the scope.
PES Amazon
With genetics from Pacific Exotica Spora (PES), this variety has a few stories to go along with it. Really interesting study if you care to look them up, but it was originally thought to be a cubensis/azurescens hybrid, accounting for the "A" in PESA. After much controversy, most identify this variety as Amazon or Amazonian.
PES Hawaiian
One of the wider caps in the species, PES (Pacific Exotica Spora) Hawaiian are uniquely pleasant to look at under the scope. One of the quickest movers on the slide, and easily one of my favorites to study!
Red Boy
So appropriately named, this variety actually drops red spores! Super interesting study under the scope!
Rusty Whyte
Another leucistic variety, these always look super cool!
South African Transkei (SAT)
Originating near Durban on S. Africa's wild coast, these are known to be some of the first specimines brought back from Africa in 2002.
Treasure Coast
First collected in the southern Gulf Coast in Florida, earning it's name from the number of shipwrecks in the area, and perhaps one of the most resistant varieties out there!
Z-Strain
Much like Golden Teacher, but this variety seems to have some great positive characteristics that sets it aside. Very fast and aggressive under the scope, this one will not disappoint!
THE FOLLOWING EXOTICS ARE NOT PART OF THE 5/$30 MIX-n-MATCH DEALIO, but can be added to any order for $10 as an add-on. These are NOT cubensis, and NOT recommended for beginners.
****Psilocybe Azurescens***\*
Originally made popular by my favorite mycologist of all time, Paul Stamets, this is known to be the most potent of any mushroom species discovered to date. It's name comes from the bluish (Azure) tint active species get when bruised. This variety is also NOT for beginners, as it is a more difficult study and requires completely different conditions to observe on a slide.
****Paneaolus Cyanescens***\*
These tiny guys pack a big punch, mostly in tropical areas. Unlike the Blue Meanie cubensis variety causing much confusion, this is the actual species also known as Blue Meanie.
I will update the available list daily as I get new varieties in stock or run out. This list is updated daily, but confirm your order with me before sending payment to be sure.
All syringes are 12cc/mL and come capped with a sterile tip cap, and also include an 18ga blunt tip needle and alcohol pads. Syringes are made in a lab grade environment and the utmost care and attention is the highest priority to be sure they are sterile. Anything exposed to an open air environment is subject to contamination, but I take every precaution possible to minimize this risk. I cannot "guarantee" they are 100% sterile, but I can guarantee that if you have an issue, I will make it right. I really do love to help, and if something happens, I'd like to know about it so I can fix the issue instead of you getting frustrated or giving up!
To ensure equal quantity of spores in each syringe, and for adequate suspension of the spores in the solution, I use a magnetic stir plate. Very often, this does such a good job of breaking up clumps of spores that it will appear to be sparse. THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE! There are still a TON of spores in each syringe, even if you can't see them individually (though most of my syringes appear to have a very good amount of visible spores...even with my horrible eyesight!). You can compare and contrast to see the blackish/purple tint to ensure every syringe is packed with spores. If a spore clump forms during transportation, simply give it a good flick with your finger and vigorously shake to break it up or free it from clinging to the wall of the syringe before examining.
Syringes ship in individual bags clearly labeled as to specific variety and born on date, bubble wrapped and shipped through USPS tracked shipping (discreet) within 24 hours of payment. I send tracking info soon after payment and give updates along the (super quick) way.
Please PM me with order details, including state shipping to, payment method, and the selected syringes for your order. Any messages referring to spores being used for anything other than microscopy use will be ignored. Don't do it.
THANK YOU ALL so much again for your continued support!! I appreciate it more than you know! MUSH LOVE
P.S. In no way am I trying to be an imposter. I AM NOT WILLY MYCO. I chose this u/ a while back as sort of a play on words and tribute to a legend most of us recognize, long before I became a spore vendor. I don't want anyone to think I am trying to pass off as him, though I do strive for his level of excellence and dedication to the craft! I appreciate all of the kind words, though, from people saying they learned from "my" videos. I wish I could pass on those notes to RR himself.
Cheers and MUSH LOVE!

African National Congress Election Manifesto Cites Blockchain As the Game Changer

South Africa is gearing for the election coming this May. Cyril Ramaphosa, the current South African President is gearing up for the coming elections, and his party, the African National Congress has already released its manifesto in which they have talked about Blockchain as the modern tool for change.
South Africa has been plagued by the past Zuma government with 10-years of misgovernance and chaos. Now people have high-hopes from Cyril Ramaphosa and his ANC to take them towards a brighter future with meaningful change, honesty, and transparency.
The president during his latest speech in the Moses Mabhida stadium in the coastal city of Durban looked more of company’s CEO than the President of the Country. Mr.Ramaphosa during his speech, he talked about the changes with the incorporation of the latest technological advancements and how the fourth industrial revolution is on the cards.
During his speech, the current president emphasized the need for a completely new system of working based on the latest technology, especially Blockchains, data analytics, and the internet of things
South Africa Has Started To Invest In Blockchain The importance of blockchain and its real-world use cases are at an all-time high. Like many other governments, South Africa has already put in the efforts and research team for investigating the potentials of cryptocurrencies and blockchain.
The South African Reserve Bank (SARB) has started the project Koha with the help from Financial Intelligence Centre, Financial Sector Conduct Authority, and Treasury and the SA Revenue Service.
The research body behind the investigation of the possibilities has come up with positive results. The SARB has found a positive outcome from the trails of settling high volumes of payments using the Blockchain.
The implementations and trials for blockchain based financial system have been going on in the country for quite some time now. If the current president goes on to win the scheduled May elections, chances are South Africa would implement Blockchain based industrial use cases on a larger scale. Hopefully, the president keeps his focus intact, the South African people can hope for a brighter future.
Conclusion The main aim behind the invention of Bitcoin was to help the people in underdeveloped and developing countries, by providing them with a financial system far from the clutches of few elites. However, the noise around the market value and its prices deviated the focus from the main goal.
2018 market crash has made many to rethink the value and need of Bitcoin and why the underneath technology of Blockchain is far more superior than its by-products. As of today the adoption and understanding have increased significantly and Blockchain is seen on par with the Artificial Intelligence. Hopefully, the approach continues, so that the countries like South Africa can come out of their decade long distress.

FORMER VIRTAPAY ADMIN APOLOGIZES? By Divine Sewornu Dzokoto

Over a million former VP$ (Virtapay Dollar) holders are understandably peeved by the fact that, of all the promises made by the former virtapay admin, none were fulfilled. What irks some 1.6million former virtapay members is the hard cash paid to upgrade to premium membership, all of which are gone.
Their indignation, according to Mr. Abraham Iroko, a former virtapay member himself and now a rich virtacoiner, is understandable. To Mr. Iroko, an unqualified apology from the former virtapay admin would have been appropriate but “where can we locate them? Nobody knows their current abode, let alone how to find them” he lamented.
According to Mr. Iroko, “as a rich virtacoiner, he wishes to apologize on behalf of the admin of former virtapay. "They have wronged all of us, the time we spent to login every day, the monies we spent to upgrade and all that stuff”, he said with a genuine remorse, almost as if he was the real admin of virtapay.
This writer recalls a lady friend in Durban South Africa, whom he helped to upgrade, paying 150 rands in 2012, all just vanishing into thin air. He feels embarrassed and believes that there are hundreds of thousands like that.
Not all is lost. Former virtapay holders can still get their groove on and even get all their balance back without paying anything. It is worth nothing that the former virtapay admin did not leave the VP$ holders comfortless. They left them with a cyrptocurrency called VIRTACOIN and it is gaining traction by the day. Indeed, every virtapay balance was converted into virtacoin, shredding off 86% of virtapay balance. Holders were given their private keys to unlock their virtacoin balance. If you were not aware of this, your balance is all gone because their website is gone, but it is not too late.
Most of the virtacoiners were new to cryptocurrency so they have just been fidgeting with the application. However, over the past one year or so, a rich store of knowledge and experience has been acquired and the virtacoin community is ready to put it at anybody's disposal.
You can still download the virtacoin wallet for windows from http://www.virtacoinwallet.eu/virtacoin-win.zip and the one for Mac from http://virtacoin.com/wallets/virtacoin-mac.zip. You can also get an online wallet from http://zapit.nu/jovirtacoinwallet. Virtacoin and bitcoin addresses are similar. Any virtacoin transaction to a bitcoin address is possible. If it happens inadvertently, your balance can be retrieved. Virtacoin can be converted into dollars using Net+ Card from Neteller.com. There is an automatic converter of bitcoin to virtacoin and virtacoin to bitcoin at http://virtacoinwallet.eu. Virtacoiners know how to retrieve their coins if their computers crush. There is a website carrying news about virtacoin. Over 11.4bn virtacoins have been mined and about 9.9bn in circulation. There are several exchanges where you can change virtacoin to any other cryptocurrency.
One virtacoin is currently, valued at between $0.00000300 and $0.00000800. When it launched, it was $0.00000000 then rose briefly to $0.17 before plummeting again. One can see that it is appreciating, though slowly.
The virtacoin community urges every former virtapay holder to come back. There is an easy way to get the equivalent of all the VP$ lost, in full and even more than you may have lost, without having to pay anything more for it. It is absolutely free. All you need to do is go to http://zapit.nu/jovirtacoinwallet to get an online wallet. Then go to http://zapit.nu/freevtahowto. In a few weeks, you should begin to pile up virtacoins to replace lost VP$.
The virtacoin community wishes to apologize to all former virtapay balance holders. You are being urged to come back and help build what former virtapay admin left behind. There is excitement, expectation and even sometimes apprehension and doubt but that is what is keeping the community moving.
