HOW TO GROW MAGIC MUSHROOMS WITH YOUR OWN GROW KIT?
The sale of magic mushrooms has been banned since 2008. Would you still like to trip on the magical psilocybin substance? Then you can buy truffles or grow your own magic mushrooms! Growing magic mushrooms yourself is completely legal. Growing magic mushrooms may sound like a job for a real gardener, but nothing could be further from the truth. You can make it as difficult as you want. In this article we explain what a grow kit is and emphasize how simple it is to grow and harvest your own magic mushrooms!
What is a grow kit?
A grow kit is also called a growkit and contains everything you need to grow your own magic mushrooms successfully. Which one you buy naturally depends on what type of mushroom you want to grow. Hence grow kit differs in handling and content, but usually contains a mushroom growkit in any case:
- Plastic cultivation tray with ready-to-use substrate (nutrient medium)
- Injected with mushroom spores
Hygiene is very important
When growing mushrooms it is essential that you work very hygienically. Always work with clean hands or even with gloves, sneeze, and cough into your elbow and wear a mask. If you don't do this, you could endanger your mushroom harvest.
The magic mushrooms are extremely susceptible to competition in the grow kit. When you sneeze, cough or even exhale, very small fungal spores can end up in the tank with very fertile substrate. The fungi feel comfortable under these perfect conditions and there is a good chance that these unwanted fungi will emerge before your magic mushrooms.
An infestation with a “wrong mold” is fortunately easy to spot. The mycelium, the underground hyphae are white. When you discover a different color in the substrate, you know that your grow kit is contaminated. Before you start growing, we recommend that you use the Magic Mushroom Starterkit to purchase. This way you are guaranteed to have everything you need to work hygienically and prevent contamination.
Choose type of grow kit
All grow kits or grow kits differ from each other in terms of manual. One therefore requires more actions than the other. However, every grow kit comes with a very clear manual. We therefore recommend that you choose the mushroom variety that you feel most comfortable with in terms of effects.
The Fresh Mushroom Growkits, for example, are very easy to use, because you don't have to water them until the first harvest. However, the effects of this strain are very strong. According to the makers, the amount of the active ingredient psilocybin can be up to two times higher than with regular magic mushroom grow kits. So read carefully about the type of magic mushroom you are going to grow. Then follow the manual carefully and you have started growing!
Start growing magic mushrooms
Growing with a grow kit is very easy, but for a successful harvest it is very important to follow the manual carefully. The cultivation itself will certainly not take you hours, but above all patience and the right timing. The tutorial of the Magic Mushroom Golden Teacher for example looks like this :
- Remove the grow kit, plastic bag and paperclip from the box. Remove the lid from the grow kit (keep lid well). Rinse the lid under running water. You will need it again later.
- Place the grow kit without a lid in the supplied plastic bag. Slide the opening of the bag under the bottom with the micro perforation upwards. The opening of the bag is now largely closed. You don't have to worry about air circulation.
Now you have to wait until you see small balls grow. Is that the case? Then you have to put the bag upright, so don't water and open it a little. This way the water can evaporate. The first magic mushrooms will be visible and will pop out of the mycelium after about 1 week. For a successful harvest it is very important to harvest before the first spores fall.
Reap multiple times
Have you had a successful harvest using your grow kit? Then don't throw it away! You can harvest one more time (or maybe even two to four more times). You can read exactly how this works in the article; This is how you get multiple harvests from a magic mushroom grow-kit.
Growing your own magic mushrooms is very easy thanks to the purchase of a grow kit or grow kit! So buy a grow kit of your favorite psilocybin mushroom in our Mushroomshop, and before you know it you'll be tripping on your own magic mushrooms!
