Magic Mushroom Cultivation

So you’ve decided to try your hand at growing mushrooms. This decision is bound to start you down an incredible path of discovery, and we’re excited to be by your side to guide you through it. Speaking of guidance, our cultivation process is divided into two Parts: “Preparing for Cultivation” and “Magic Mushroom Cultivation“. Both these Parts are located under the navigation menu at the top of the page. Each Part consists of six Units, and each Unit is broken down into easy-to-digest Steps specially designed for newcomers to the field.

In this first Part, “Preparing for Cultivation”, we outline the process of magic mushroom cultivation and list the required items for the grow. Next, we make or modify several tools such as Mason Jar Lids and build a Still Air box. We then learn how to use a pressure cooker safely and how to work under clean conditions.  Once you complete this Part, you will have everything you need to start growing magic mushrooms. But before you begin…

Apart from your physical preparation, you should also take this time to learn more about the psychedelic experience, its history, benefits, and dangers. We can recommend a couple of books in this area. These books include essential information for anyone considering trying psychedelics – including some excellent advice on if and how to consume them. The book “How to change your mind” by Michael Pollan explores the history and science of psychedelics, as well as his own experiences with them, all while shining a light on the inner workings of human consciousness.

The second book – “The Magic Mushroom User’s Guide,” pretty accurately describes itself as “The Psilocybin Handbook for Safe and Ceremonial Use of Psychedelic Mushrooms. A Practical and Sacred Journey for the Awakening of Consciousness”.  It covers many important and practical topics – including safety, microdosing, ceremonial use, and more. This book is strongly recommended.

We wish you good luck with your cultivation journey!
