Cultivating mushrooms at home is a fairly simple process, but one that offers rich rewards.

In this article we outline some of the essential information you will need if you are interested in growing your own magic mushrooms.

Why Grow Your Own Magic Mushrooms?

Magic Mushrooms how to pick

.

There are lots of reasons you may want to dive into the magical world of mushroom growing. First of all, there is something incredibly satisfying about cultivating your own psychedelic product and knowing its journey from start to finish. It also eliminates the need to search for mushrooms from less transparent sources or turn to the black market. 

.

Growing your own mushrooms is also a great way to get introduced to the field of mycology. The kingdom of fungi is absolutely fascinating ─ check out the film Fantastic Fungi to get a taste of just how magical and mysterious mushrooms really are. 

.

If you are interested in microdosing, growing at home will make your experience all the more straightforward: one flush of the Magic Mushroom grow kits can supply enough mushrooms to last a whole year.

What Are the Best Mushroom Strains to Grow at Home?

.

.

Psilocybe Cubensis are the easiest strain of mushroom to grow at home because they are tough and grow well in all climates. Cubensis strains are also some of the most popular magic mushrooms today, and include the well-known Mexican, McKennaii, and Golden Teachers.

.

However, if you are looking for more potency, the Panaeolus Cyanescens, also known as Hawaiian Copelandia, is what you need ─ they are up to 4 times stronger than Cubensis mushrooms. Yet, it is important to know that because they come from a tropical region it can be a bit trickier to grow them if you don't have the perfect temperature.

How To Grow Your Own Magic Mushrooms

.

When growing your own magic mushrooms, you have two options to consider:

.

  1. You can use a kit that contains all you need to grow your mushrooms in 3 weeks, with very little intervention required.
  2. Or you can do it yourself from scratch, using spores to colonize your substrate.

.

Let's take a deeper look at these two methods. 

l

Option #1: Full Kit - The Easy Way 

.

 .

A full kit is an ideal choice if you’re a beginner, or if you don’t have the time or resources needed to invest in a spore grow. Full kits are super convenient, easy to use, and don’t demand a lot of your time: a full flush can grow in 3 to 5 weeks.

 .

One of the main things that make a kit so attractive is that the mycelium network, which is the main element needed for mushrooms to grow, is already present in the kit’s substrate. This means that there is no need to buy spores, or nutrient-rich media and then mix it all up in a super-clean environment to get it going ─ everything has already been done for you.

 .

After purchasing your kit, all you need to do is put it inside a plastic bag (which acts as a mini-greenhouse), then spray some water on the inner walls and wait for about 3 weeks.

.

Two Types of Magic Mushrooms Shop Kits.

 

  • Mondo kits are our standard kits. This brand carries most of the original Cubensis strains. To start the growth process, all you need to do is add water to the kit, close the lid, and put it in the fridge for 12 hours. After those 12 hours, you take out the water, put it in the special plastic bag, and patiently wait for your mushrooms to appear. These kits also come in extra-large sizes, perfect for people looking to minimize time input and still get an extra high yield.

.

  • FreshMushrooms are the easiest kits to use and have a rye-based substrate with no filling layers of vermiculite perlite. This makes them maintenance-free and faster to grow ─ in ideal conditions, you will see the first pins come through in around 1 week and you should be able to get up to 4 flushes. And the best thing: there is no soaking and no misting needed until the first flush.

.

Option #2 Spores: Rewarding but more complex

.

.

Growing mushrooms from spores is a completely different experience because you must first wait for the mycelium to colonize your substrate before any mushrooms will appear. Choosing this option can be a very rewarding experience because you start from scratch; nevertheless, you must have patience as the process takes time. 

.

This method is ideal for those who either already have a good understanding of the mushroom’s growth cycle, or for those who are interested in learning more about mycology and don’t mind making some mistakes ─ you might not grow anything at all on your first try!

.

One of the advantages of growing from spores is that you have more control over the whole process, and as you go through each step you will come to understand the more subtle aspects of mushroom growth.

.

Moreover, if you manage to get your substrate started with mycelium the results are often more consistent, and you can get a higher yield. Growing from spores is also more economical if you want to grow very large amounts of mushrooms.

Tips on How to Grow your Own Magic Mushrooms at Home 

.

.

.Whether you are using a kit or growing from scratch, the following tips are important:

  1. Hygiene ─ If your mushrooms get contaminated they won't grow, so maintaining proper hygiene is super important. Use latex gloves and a face mask and keep surfaces and equipment clean with alcohol wipes.

.

  1. Quality- Always buy high-quality kits and equipment from reputable brands. By buying an illegal kit you run the risk that it might be fake.

.

  1. Light- Make sure you never put your mushrooms under direct light.

.

  1. Temperature - Keep the temperature of your mushrooms between 18 and 28 degrees Celsius. Consider buying a heat mat to keep consistent heat.

.

  1. Environment - Keep their environment constant and don’t make any dramatic changes to their growing set-up. Mushrooms are very sensitive to their environment and sudden changes may stunt their growth. 

.

  1. Instructions - Always follow the instructions in the kit exactly. They’re there for a reason!

.

  1. Harvest - Harvest your mushrooms while they’re young and their caps are still closed. When they’re open, they’ll start to drop spores.

.
