Known as penis mushrooms or Albino penis envy mushrooms, these mushrooms are noted for their phallic shape and are said to be considerably more potent than average.
These mushrooms usually produce few spores so they are usually grown from master cultures.
Learn how to grow hallucinogenic mushrooms at home step by step. Up-to-date information on mushroom cultivation: substrates, mushroom loaves, fructifiers, obtaining spores, treatment for contamination and the most modern cultivation techniques.
These mushrooms are also known as laughing mushrooms, monguis (although these are really Psilocybe semilanceata), cucumelo, magic mushrooms, teonanácatl (meat of god), Mexican mushrooms, psilocybin mushrooms and little mushrooms, among other terms.
Although it is much more didactic and rewarding to grow from spores (in this way, we will also learn to manage ourselves with techniques for growing edible and medicinal mushrooms), in order not to get complicated, many start from a mushroom bread to later take out spores. and start the process from them.
How to grow mushroom loaves
If you are going to grow a mushroom loaf, we recommend the mushroom loaf cultivation manual where you will find the instructions, frequently asked questions and everything you need to start growing mushrooms at home.
Culture from spores or liquid culture
- Take syringes out of the spore stamp. Spores can be purchased from a reputable source (such as our sponsor) or obtained from a spore bank, which increases the risk of contamination.
- Prepare the rye grain and apply sterilization in a pressure cooker.
- Inoculate the grain (once it has cooled down).
- Incubation until 100% colonized.
- Optional step: spawn in bulk substrate with Bucket TEK CVY or manure and incubate.
- Fruiting: shotgun or monotub. If you make bulk with manure you must pasteurize.
- Obtaining spores
- Harvest, drying and conservation
Agar makes it easier for us to clean, reproduce and maintain cultures, and ultimately work with the cultivation of fungi. It is the method used by professional mycologists and allows us to maintain strains isolated from especially aggressive and powerful cultures and store them in the refrigerator for many years to reproduce them whenever we want.
- B+ monitoring, culture from agar.
- Liquid agar as inoculant.
