Common Mushroom Strains
To date, mycologists have discovered more than 200 different species of mushrooms belonging to the psilocybe genus. These species differ in terms of their physical appearance, degree of effectiveness, function, and difficulty in growing.
The most popular and widely used species is the Psilocybe Cubensis. Mushrooms in this category are straightforward to cultivate and can be easily found in online stores and local psychedelic shops.
These species have received a lot of attention from researchers, which has led to the discovery of many subspecies within the Psilocybe Cubensis species, which are popularly dubbed ‘stress’ in the mushroom scene. However, when exploring this moniker from a taxonomy and microbiology viewpoint, it is not entirely correct.
These strains may belong to the Psilocybe Cubensis species, but vary in physical features and psychotropic content found in the sporocarp (fruiting body or fruit body) and the mycelium.
Strains in the Cubensis category also vary in great degrees during cultivation. Some may have higher resistance to contamination than others, others have faster emigration speed, and some have substantially higher yields.
The above factors may also be influenced by the isolation level of a specific mushroom society and the solidity of their genetic makeup (this is discussed further below).

Mushroom Growing Tips
Fungi reproduce through spores, which are dispersed by either wind, water, or other living organisms to form haploid cells that eventually grow into fungus.
Fungi are also referred to as saprotrophic organisms, meaning they survive the hierarchy of living organisms by feeding on nutrients readily available in their surrounding environment.
They feed on dead and decaying matter, which contains the nutrients necessary to facilitate their growth and healthiness.
In their quest to feed, fungus plays a crucial role in promoting the wellness of various communities by facilitating the decomposition of dead plants and animals. Additionally, they are known to decompose products that threaten living organisms like nuclear waste and oils. Apart from fungus being essential in any ecosystem, they do offer numerous benefits to people. Certain fungi varieties like Lions Mane and Shiitake aid in promoting psychological, cognitive, and cardiovascular health. They are usually made into a variety of edibles (gummies, tea, capsules, cookies, chocolate) to make consumption easier and more fun.
Another mushroom variety is the class of Psilocybe Cubensis, which are famous for their psychoactive capabilities. Research has indicated that psychedelic mushrooms can help treat conditions like anxiety, stress, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, addiction, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorders.
Owing to their numerous benefits, peoplefrantically search the web to discover the best practices to expand mushrooms. However, the information available is filled with blog posts, e-books, and video tutorials that fall short in one way or another.
Mostly, the content overload contains the general procedure and overlooks some vital details that ultimately affect your shrooms’ quality and yield.
A good ‘how-to’ should explain the whole process, elaborate on why specific steps are crucial and offer tips that set their viewers’ or readers’ end products apart from the rest. The tutorials we provide incorporate our user-friendly products, which makes the process much easier when you purchase any of our mushroom growing kits or any growing kit, for that matter.
1st Tip: before embarking on your indoor mushroom expansion journey, first understand the fungi’s growth cycle when subjected to optimum conditions.
When spores are subjected to an ideal environment with sufficient nutrients and specific ecological drawbacks, they will begin to sprout in no time. They will quickly utilize the nutrients available and begin to form mycelium.
Mycelium acts as the vegetative part of the shrooms, which takes up all the power and nutrients available to facilitate growth rather than recreation. It is characterized by numerous roots that branch out, each being as thick as a single cell. These hairs are referred to as Hyphae.
With enough nutrients and optimum ecological conditions, the mycelium continues to thrive in growth as it spreads out. This stage centers on the mycelium’s growth rather than the mushroom’s expansion and is referred to as the ‘emigration’ or the’ spawning’ stage. You can find top-quality cultures and mushroom expand kits on our site.
The next step begins when the mycelium uses up most of the nutrients available in their vicinity (when they have colonized their tool). During this time, you may need to adjust the environmental conditions such as lighting, humidity levels, and temperature to facilitate the mycelium transition from the emigration stage to the fruiting stage.
In the fruiting stage, the mushrooms begin to sprout as they slowly overcome the mycelial mat. This is a continuous stage that goes on until the available nutrients are depleted or when the lighting, humidity, and temperature settings are changed to coincide with the emigration stage’s ecological settings.
2nd Tip: growing mushrooms indoors required some adjustments that increase their colonization rate, yield, and strength.
A majority of mushroom cultivators use spore syringes to initiate the germination process. For newbies, we recommend utilizing magic mushroom grow kits available on our site. They make the cultivation process straightforward and cheaper. However, there are other ways to cultivate mushrooms.
Professional mycologists with years of experience use the process of seclusion to duplicate mushroom tissues to make shrooms with high-quality genetic makeup. They do this by taking a tissue sample of the shrooms and growing it while observing it using an *agar tool*. This hastens the emigration time and gives the cultivators better yields from larger fruiting bodies.
Further isolation can be conducted on the agar tool via selecting specific firm mycelial hairs and breeding them on an extra agar petri dish. All our societies are pure isolates and provide cultivators with better results compared to using a spore syringe. Spore syringes contain a high degree of irregularities in genetic composition.
Agar is a medium made up of jelly-like substances derived from red algae. While working on agar and isolates, you will need to incorporate a flow hood, including a blower, a rough-textured pre-filter, and a High-Efficiency Particulate Air, aka HEPA. This set-up facilitates the free flow of filtered air over your designated workspace.
Another way to increase yields while growing your mushrooms in a controlled environment is by incorporating a medium with high nutrient and water retention capabilities during the fruiting phase. As highlighted earlier, the fruiting stage comes right after the colonization stage, when the mycelium has used up most of the nutrients in its surroundings.Mushrooms begin to sprout immediately in their growing medium when subjected to the right ecological conditions and when a suitable fruiting tool is added, the yields become substantially higher. The blending of the fruiting medium and the generate creates a mixture dubbed ‘mushroom substratum’.
The fruiting tool consists of substances/materials like worm castings, manure, frass, vermiculite and peat-moss that provide the mushrooms with nutrients, beneficial microbes and high-water retention rates.
3rd Tip: keep your workspace sterile
During the process of expanding, it is vital to keep the workspace sterile constantly. Unfortunately, the growing area is prone to both good and bad microbes as well as undesirable fungus.
Unfiltered air consists of numerous bacterial and fungal spores, which ultimately compete for available resources like nutrients and air with your psilocybe culture or spores when not dealt with appropriately.
All surfaces, tools, and devices that come into contact with your mushroom society must be adequately cleaned and disinfected. Both emigration and fruiting mediums are kept in a pressure cooker and sterilized/pasteurized to facilitate the shrooms’ healthy growth.
You will find that each of our growing kits comes with a disinfectant. We want to ensure that our customers have the best and easiest time cultivating mushrooms in their residence.
