Mushroom-growing is a surprisingly easy process. It doesn’t require any knowledge or experience, just a lot of reading and a willingness to try and fail at the beginning. Mushrooms are fascinating organisms that can be grown indoors, even if you lack space or sunlight! However, there are some steps you’ll need to take before you start growing your own fungi.
Please read the legal disclaimer before you proceed, because mushroom-growing is illegal in some countries.
Mushroom-growing is illegal in some countries, so please check your local laws before you grow mushrooms.
If you want to grow these magic mushrooms at home, be careful not to break the law.
In addition, mushrooms can be poisonous if not grown properly and they can even be addictive!
Get a kit.
You can buy a magic mushroom growing kit that includes everything you need to start your first grow: a bag, substrate, spores and instructions. You can also make your own kit with the same items or purchase them separately.
- The most popular option is to use a grow bag made of polyester fabric and filled with sterilized substrate (wood chips). Make sure the bag is big enough for the size of mushrooms you want to produce.
- Spores are microscopic fungal bodies that contain all the genetic information needed for new mycelium growth. They’re available online from reputable vendors who guarantee their products are authentic and effective at producing fresh mushrooms under ideal conditions; however, it’s important not to try these products if you have allergies or other medical conditions—they could trigger dangerous reactions!
Get the right location.
A location that is dark, cool, and slightly humid is optimal. The temperature should be between 68°F and 77°F (20°C – 25°C). The humidity level should be about 85%.
It’s important to keep the mushrooms away from children and pets because they are poisonous if ingested. It’s also important to keep them away from air conditioning vents or heaters so that their environment doesn’t fluctuate too much due to temperature changes in your home. Finally, you want to make sure that your growing space isn’t near any sources of light or noise as they can stress out the fungus causing it not to grow as well as it could have otherwise grown if placed in a more ideal environment.
Get the right equipment and environment.
Before you start growing, you need to get the right equipment and environment. The first thing is to build a glove box out of plastic with a tight-fitting lid. You will be able to see through it with one side covered in clear plastic or glass. This will help keep the humidity high inside so that your mushrooms can grow.
Next, you need a terrarium for your mushrooms to grow in once they’re ready for fruiting (producing mushrooms). It should have enough space for 3-4 cakes at least; these are special jars used for growing magic mushrooms on them instead of just putting them directly into soil like other types of fungi do). Don’t worry about getting too technical here if you don’t know anything about how these things work—we’ll explain everything below!
Finally, there are some things that every good gardener needs: gloves! They protect against bacteria from spreading from hands onto plants by covering exposed skin areas while working outdoors without having any direct contact with soil or plants themselves.”
Don’t be impatient.
Patience is key to growing mushrooms at home. Your patience will be tested by many things:
- You need to be patient with the process of growing magic mushrooms, which takes weeks or months.
- You need to be patient with your grow kit and its specific requirements, including how much light it needs and what temperature range it prefers.
- You need to be patient with your spores, which may take days or weeks before they’re ready for inoculation into your substrate (the material used for cultivation).
- You need to be patient with the substrate itself; some types of materials require weeks or even months before they’re ready for colonization.
- Use a clean, well-ventilated room. A basement or guest bedroom is perfect.
- Don’t use your kitchen, bathroom or bedroom. These rooms are too dirty, humid and warm to create ideal conditions for growing mushrooms.
- Don’t use a room that is too hot or too cold. It needs to be between 68°F and 77°F (20°C – 25°C) for best results in growing magic mushrooms at home! If the temperature outside fluctuates significantly during the year then consider using supplemental heaters or air conditioners as needed during colder months so that you can keep the temperature inside stable without worrying about whether they will go up into “dangerous” range where growth will be stunted due to low humidity levels caused by heating systems being used indoors which would otherwise cause problems when trying to grow them outdoors during warmer months if this wasn’t done properly.”
This is what you learned today.
You learned how to grow magic mushrooms at home.
How many people do you know who have successfully grown their own magic mushrooms? How many people do you know who have tried and failed to grow their own magic mushrooms? I’m sure there are plenty of people out there who haven’t even tried, because they don’t believe it’s possible or want to risk being arrested for growing illegal substances. You might think that growing your own magic mushrooms is only for stoners, but it isn’t!
I hope you enjoyed learning about how to grow magic mushrooms at home! It’s an exciting topic, and I’m sure if you follow these steps you’ll be successful. Good luck!
