Psilocybin is a psychedelic drug that can be found in certain mushrooms. The most well-known and potent of these, the psilocybe cubensis mushroom, has been used as a medicine and spiritual guide by indigenous cultures throughout Central America for thousands of years. As one might imagine, however, there are other ways to consume psilocybin besides eating dried mushrooms—such as smoking it or even drinking teas made from them.

Spore syringes are the easiest and cheapest way to start growing mushrooms. They are available online, and you can even find them at your local head shop.
Spore syringes are a sterile way of growing mushrooms that can be used over and over again without any loss of quality.
Growing mushroom substrate
Mushrooms is a very time-consuming process but can be rewarding if you are passionate about gardening. Growing psilocybin mushroom substrate involves the preparation of a material that the mushrooms will grow on, known as spawn. This is often made from compost, manure and straw but can also be purchased online or home-made by yourself.
The first step in growing psilocybin mushroom substrate is to sterilize it so that no bacteria or pathogens will interfere with the growth of your mushrooms.
Sterilizing the substrate
To sterilize the substrate, you will need:
- A pot large enough to hold the substrate after it has been broken up and mixed with water. You can use a stockpot or something similar.
- A lid for your pot that fits well so that you can create an airtight seal around the edges. If you don’t have one, don’t worry—you can use aluminum foil to create an airtight seal instead.
- Rockwool cubes or vermiculite (or both). Both materials are inert and sterile when purchased as plant starter cubes or flakes; they’re also available in many garden stores as well as online through sellers such as Amazon or other online retailers like eBay.* Water-soluble fertilizer (don’t use liquid fertilizers like MiracleGro because they may contain additives designed for plants grown outdoors)
Inoculating Your Substrate
- Use a clean, sterile syringe and needle to inoculate your substrate. If you don’t have access to a fume hood (or other appropriate ventilation), be sure not to open windows. Doors while working with fungus spores, because these can easily spread into areas where they aren’t welcome.
- After preparing your workspace and equipment, gently place your mushroom spore print onto some substrate. material which has been soaked with warm water (95°F [35°C] or hotter). Spores should now begin germinating within 10–30 minutes. Depending on temperature conditions; after about 24 hours of incubation at room temperatures between 65–75°F [18-24°C], many will have germinated successfully if not all have done so already!
Incubating Your Substrate
The incubation period will vary depending on the strain, but it is generally between 4-10 weeks. The temperature should remain between 65°F (18°C) and 75°F (24°C). Humidity should be kept around 60% relative humidity. This can be achieved by spraying down your substrate with water every day or so. Also, there must be adequate air exchange to prevent mold from growing inside the casing layer. Light exposure should remain at 12 hours darkness per 24-hour period; however, this can be reduced to 10 hours per day once mushrooms begin growing in order to help prevent over-colonizing of your growing environment
Now that you have had your cake colonized and have waited the right amount of time, it is time to birth. The first step in this process is getting your materials ready. You will need to get a clean work area, some vodka or grain alcohol, some coffee filters or felt squares (or any other material that will be able to soak up water), and an empty spray bottle. Also keep in mind that when you are working with clean spores and mushroom caps it is important not to touch them directly with your hands as they can possibly contaminate themselves with bacteria from touching the cakes or spores directly.
When you are ready to begin birthing your cakes, start by putting them into individual containers so that each one has enough room for colonization without being over crowded by others around them (this makes for faster growth). Next take each container out one at a time so as not too disturb its neighbors while doing so then place it on top of something flat like cardboard paper towel roll so that there is no chance of tipping over while trying to get the lid off later on in this process! Once done transferring all four containers back into their original jars where they were previously located before taking them out again only now fill up each jar completely full with distilled water.
Casing The Substrate
The casing layer serves two important functions. It provides a place for the mycelium to grow and it helps to speed up the growth process. The casing layer should be approximately 1″ thick and consists of finely. Milled peat moss (or vermiculite), compost, sugar and water.
Because it is the most vulnerable to contamination by bacterial pathogens. To sterilize your compost, put it in a bucket or other container with holes in the bottom. Fill with water until just below where the compost sits. Let this sit for 24 hours at room temperature. At this point you can use your pasteurized substrate as-is or add some additional ingredients. Depending on what kind of mushrooms you want to grow (more on that later).
Pinning Your Dream Cake to Reality
Pinning is the process by which mushrooms release their spores. This means that it is time to harvest your psilocybin mushrooms.
Just as with most things in nature, there are multiple factors that can affect how long it will take for your shrooms to pin. If you’ve done everything right so far and have good genetics (also known as spores), then all you have left to do is wait patiently for your shrooms to finish growing and then harvest them when they’re ready!
When they’re ready, harvest the mushrooms. The best way to do this is to place them on a tray and put them in an area with light (but not direct sunlight) for 5-7 days. The mushrooms will be dry when they become firm and brittle to touch. You can tell their potency by how long it takes for them to dry. If they’re ready within 2 days, you may want to wait another week. Before harvesting so that they have more of an effect!
When they’re dry, store them in a dark cool place until you’re ready to use them again (about 1 year). If no one else is around at home when you eat your first batch, don’t worry!
Drying your Mushrooms for the Best Flush!
The process of drying mushrooms is an important one, as it helps you prevent mold from growing on them. Unfortunately, drying psilocybin mushrooms can take up to 10 days or more if done by air. If you don’t have time for such a long wait period, consider using a dehydrator. or putting them on top of a fan instead. You can also dry your psilocybin mushrooms in an oven with its door open. So that the heat circulates throughout the room. where they’re drying off and inhibits any molds from forming on its surfaces
