Are you interested in growing your own mushrooms at home? With the right equipment and some simple tips, it’s easy to get started.
First, you’ll need to purchase a PSILOCYBE CUBENSIS MELMAK SPORE SWABS or mushroom spores. In addition to the kit, you’ll also need an electric fan, a spray mist bottle, and cooking oil spray.
Tip #1: The key to successful mushroom growth is maintaining a stable temperature. Experiment with different locations in your home to find the best spot for your mushrooms.
Tip #2: Avoid placing your mushroom box directly in front of a window. Instead, provide indirect light to prevent the mushroom caps from turning dark brown.
Tip #3: Keep the humidity high by misting the mushroom block daily with a spray bottle. If you live in a dry climate, you may need to mist more often, while in more humid climates, you can mist less frequently.
Tip #4: Proper air circulation is crucial for mushroom growth. Avoid growing mushrooms in small, enclosed spaces to prevent carbon dioxide build-up.
Tip #5: When the veil that attaches the cap to the stem begins to tear, it’s time to harvest your mushrooms. This usually occurs after about two weeks in the light. Be sure to check for harvestable mushrooms daily, and gently twist and pull them from the block. Be sure to remove any partial stems as they may rot.
By following these easy tips, you’ll be able to grow your own delicious mushrooms in no time.
