  1. You can buy a full grow kit,
  2. Or you can grow them from scratch using spores.

#1 Full Kit - The Easy Way to grow

.

 .

A full kit is an ideal choice, not only if you’re a beginner, but also, if you don’t have the time or resources to invest in a spore grow.

.

Full kits are convenient, easy to use, and don’t demand a lot of your time, a full flush can grow anywhere from 3 to 5 weeks.

.

The main element that makes a kit so attractive is that Mycelium, which is the main element needed for mushrooms to grow, is already present in the kit’s substrate. No need to buy spores, nutrient-rich media and mix it all up in a super clean environment to get it going, it’s all done for you.

.

Once you get your kit, all you need to do is put it inside a plastic bac which acts as a mini-greenhouse, spray some water on the inner walls, and wait 3 weeks.

.

Two types of Magic Mushrooms Shop Kits

.

Mondo kits are our standard kits. 

This brand carries most of the original Cubenis strains. To start the growth process, all you need to do is add water to the kit, close the lid, put it in the fridge for 12 hours. After those 12 hours, you take out the water, put it in the special plastic bag we send you, and wait for 3 to 4 weeks.

.

Mondo kits also come in Extra-Large sizes; it is made for those looking to maximize their time and need an extra high yield.

.

FreshMushrooms kits are the easiest kits to use and they have a rye-based substrate with no filling layers of vermiculite perlite.  This makes it maintenance-free and faster to grow, as a matter of fact, in ideal conditions, you will see the first pins come through and you should be able to get up to 4 flushes.

And the best thing: no soaking needed and no misting needed until the first flush.

#2 Spores – Rewarding but more complex: Only for experts

.

.

Growing mushrooms from spores is a completely different experience because you must wait for the mycelium to colonize your substrate. 

.

it’s a very rewarding experience because you start from scratch, nevertheless, you must have patience and time. 

.

This method is for those who either already have a good understanding of the mushroom’s growth cycle, or for those who are interested in learning and don’t mind making some mistakes, meaning, 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 when you go through each step and come to understand the subtitle aspects of the 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.
