anyone have experience growing mushrooms?
« on: October 26, 2018, 12:13:41 AM »
i am going to try microdosing for depression, anxiety, bipolar, etc...  bought some  "grain" that i hope is either already innoculated or comes with a spore syringe, etsy seller was very vague but reviews were all good.  i've never grown shrooms before but i'm somewhat familiar with what seems like a simple process.  keep everything sterile & at an even temperature, on top of the fridge is good & that's my plan.  other stuff like when to harvest i have no clue.

  funny how things come back around.  my folks were "hippie/back to the land" types & our attic was full of window screens being laid out for drying weed and shrooms, had no idea what either was at the time

i tried but never got the email to validate membership.  tried resending it, nada.  their grow forums are hidden until i'm a member so no help there.

so, i ordered bagged substrate, ready to innoculate & also spore syringes.  i've watched some youtube videos but none that are doing it the same way in bags, most use tubs.  (the bags will go in a sterile tub).  i think i'm supposed to keep the bags sealed (they have an injection port) until some point, i think until they're just about ready to spring up but unsure how to tell.  also unsure when to harvest, just know that before they drop spores but again how to tell?

i need to find a good resource, maybe a book, i'll check amazon, i have a kindle.
