The basic rules in growing magic mushrooms.
Magic mushrooms grow in the wild and people have been using them for thousands of years. Eventually, humans learned to depend on nature less and grow magic mushrooms from the comfort of their own homes.
If you want to grow your own psilocybin mushrooms, it’s important to follow this guide and avoid any temptation to innovate – at least for the first time. Failure among newbie magic mushrooms growers is the primary cause of failure.
General Guidelines in Growing Magic Mushrooms
Before you grow magic mushrooms at home, it’s important to keep your work area as clean as possible. Following these guidelines will help prevent molds from contaminating your mushroom grow environment.
- Wash your utensils before and after using them.
- Sterilize the air in your workspace by keeping a Bunsen burner nearby.
- Avoid doing any general cleaning during the growing process. Cleaning up will cause dust to fly in the air.
- Never use contaminated mushrooms. Throw away any dubious mushrooms without regret. Growing psychedelic mushrooms doesn’t cost too much money and they regrow fast.
Growing Magic Mushrooms Using a Spore Print
This method is perfect for beginners. For now, avoid growing Copelandia cyanescens. It has one of the strongest hallucinogenic effects but is also more difficult to grow. It’s better to try growing Psilocybe cubensis first. This strain is perfect for beginners.
- One spore print from a Psilocybe cubensis mushroom
- Petri dishes with agar
- One Bunsen burner with gas bottle
- One large and wide needle
- 3 or 4 large airtight jars
- 10 kilograms of rice flour
- Several kilos of vermiculite
- Pressure cooker
- 3 large Styrofoam boxes lined with airtight foil inside
- 1 scalpel
- Organic rye
- Disposable sterile gloves and surgical masks

Choose an area in your house that will serve as your grow room. It should be free from dust and molds.
Open the Petri dishes and put the needle tip into the agar and close the Petri dish. This has to be done quickly to prevent contamination.
Repeat steps 1-5 to two or three more Petri dishes and store them in a dark room with room temperature. Avoid direct sunlight to prevent unnecessary heating. Within 4 to 10 days, you should see the magic mushrooms growing.
Wear your sterile gloves. Open the lid of the sterilized jars. Push some pieces of the colonized agar pieces into them and close them again. Repeat this step until you finish putting all the hallucinogenic mushroom spores into the Petri dishes.
Keep the jars in a dark area with room temperature. Over the course of the next days, you will see the magic mushrooms digging through the feeding media. Let the mushrooms grow until half of the jar is filled.
To harvest the mushrooms, grip each stalk and pull until you hear a “thud.” When done, spray the box with water until the media becomes wet again.
Once you have harvested all of them, you can dry the psilocybin mushrooms to preserve them for longer periods of time. Magic mushrooms can also be consumed fresh but if you feel creative, there are a lot of ways to eat psilocybin shrooms!
Growing your own magic mushrooms is easy but if you don’t have any luck in the gardening department, don’t fret. Using a grow kit is a good alternative.
Using grow kits to produce more magic mushrooms is easy and some can give a guaranteed harvest in as short as 3 days. Get your hands on a magic mushroom grow kit today!
