Magic mushroom kits make growing mushrooms at home an easy and accessible hobby. The kits consist of a substrate already inoculated with spores, and simple instructions for care. This way people without any previous knowledge of mushroom cultivation can easily start cultivating mushrooms at home.
Traditionally, would-be growers have taken slivers of the Psilocybe culture and placed them into sterilized grain jars. These were then exposed to a humidified environment, where they were allowed to colonize and grow. The resulting mushrooms were then picked and sliced up and eaten. This rudimentary approach to cultivation is still used by many amateur mushroomers, but it can be confusing to newcomers. Mushroom grow kits offer a much simpler solution, and they can help first-time growers avoid common mistakes that lead to poor results.
There are many different kinds of Magic mushroom kits on the market, and each one offers something a little bit different. For example, the North Spore kit comes in a sleek and modern box that is more discreet than some of its competitors. It also has a “solarium” type plastic piece that covers the hole where the mushrooms grow, so it will blend in more with your décor than other kits with open holes.
Other kits are more specialized, such as the McKennaii mushroom grow kit, which is a strain that produces profound philosophical experiences and extreme visuals with eyes closed. It’s very strong, however, and is not suitable for a first introduction to psilocybin mushrooms.
