Growing Magic Mushrooms at Home

While some enthusiast are daunted by the process; more and more people are growing psilocybin mushrooms at home. As well as providing a reliable, year-round supply, home cultivation eliminates the risk of misidentifying mushrooms in the wild. For many growers, it’s also a fun, low-cost hobby. We are going to break down the process for you in our 3 part series. Our aim is to make an at home magic mushroom crop affordable and simple for you!

Lets start at the beginning; and walk through each step, what you need, where to find it, and of course what the heck to do with it...... Here we grow.


The one thing you might have trouble getting is a good spore syringe. This will contain your magic mushroom spores and be used to “sow” them into the substrate. Some growers have reported issues of contamination, misidentified strains, and even syringes containing nothing but water. However, as long as you do your research and find a reputable supplier, you shouldn’t have any problems. Spore Syringes can be found everywhere from Amazon to your local backyard grower. We are please to be taking pre orders for lab quality guaranteed syringes of all the most popular strains!


As you learn how to grow mushrooms indoors, you’ll want to decide on a species and strain. Hotgrass offers a range to choose from, but the Psilocybe cubensis B+ and Golden Teacher mushrooms are among the most popular for beginners. While not as potent as some others, like Penis Envy, they’re reportedly more forgiving of sub-optimal and changeable conditions. The exotics are best left to the seasoned grower; don't worry you will get there!
