In this article, we’ll go over everything you need to know about how to grow magic mushrooms at home, including what they are, why they’re so popular right now, and how much money you’re going to spend on equipment.
What is a mushroom?
Mushrooms are fungi, not plants. Fungi are a group of organisms that lack chlorophyll and absorb nutrients from their hosts or environment through the use of specialized organs called “mycelium.”
Mushrooms are not animals; they do not have a nervous system and therefore cannot feel pain or suffer when you eat them (though some people might argue this).
Mushroom spores are spread by wind, water droplets on dust particles, insects or animals such as birds who eat them out of curiosity and then poop them somewhere else where they can grow into new mushrooms!

Equipment you need to grow magic mushrooms at home.
Here is a list of equipment you need:
- Sterilized substrate. This is the material in which your mushrooms will grow. Usually it’s grain or wood chips, but you can also use cotton wool or synthetic materials like vermiculite (which makes sense if you’re growing indoors).
- Sterilized casing material. Casing refers to the top layer of soil on which your mushrooms will grow; it provides support for them as well as moisture retention and nutrients for growth. It can be made out of composted manure, peat moss, or simply vermiculite without any additives at all! If using a casing layer with added nutrients be careful not too overdo it–just enough so that they don’t have access directly through their root systems into soil below again until harvest time (more details below).
The process of growing shrooms in the comfort of your home.
- Sterilizing everything: You need to sterilize the casing, casing mix and spawn before you use it. This is done by boiling all three items in water that has been brought to a boil and then allowed to sit for 20 minutes. When you are ready to use your sterilized materials they should be at room temperature.
- Clean environment: It is important that you keep things clean when growing mushrooms because they can easily get contaminated with bacteria or mold if the environment isn’t clean enough. If there are any signs of mold on any part of your mushroom grow kit then throw away all parts involved immediately so as not risk contaminating other projects later on down the line!
Harvesting and drying mushrooms
- Harvesting and Drying Mushrooms
Harvest your mushrooms when the veil has broken and the cap is fully expanded. The best way to do this is by using a sharp knife or scissors, cutting off the stem at its base. You can also use a spoon if you’re feeling adventurous!
Once harvested, place your mushrooms in an airy environment with good circulation and keep them there until they are completely dried out (this can take anywhere from 2 days to a week). Make sure there aren’t any bugs around–if there are, remove them immediately by hand or with an insecticidal spray like Raid.
