MAGIC MUSHROOMS - Magic Mushrooms: how to get them? - Growing



Growing


Maybe even more fun than hunting and seeking mushrooms is to grow them yourself and harvest the `little brothers' from your windowsill. In reality this is not a simple procedure. Especially the growing of the mycelium, the part that is under the ground, is work for professionals. It is particularly important to work in a very sterile environment and to keep all diseases and vermin away. Apart from this, the growing of the spores into mycelium needs perfect and regular temperature and moisture, something, which is not always that easy at home. Friendly, relatively cheap and easy solutions are the so-called growkits. With these a professional grower has done all the preparatory work and you can buy a ready-made box with pre-grown mycelium. And if you take good care of it, the mushrooms must come out of the ground in a few weeks. We intentionally say `must', because in spite of loving care like described in the manual, we never really succeeded. Either they were ridden by strange insects, or they dried up in spite of frequent watering or the mycelium withered away under our eyes.
The growing of mushrooms looks easier than it really is .
If you want to know more about this, then we refer you to the bibliography at the end of this book.
