Your local health food store or website of an online spore store might offer a way to obtain wild-grown sporeworks mushrooms. Even so, you’ll want to grow your own, because buying them from outside sources is often difficult and expensive. Fortunately, you don’t have to be a mushroom expert or a horticulturist to grow sporeworks mushrooms recreationally. All you need is a little know-how and some basic growing techniques.
What Is Sporeworks Magic Mushroom Farming?
Sporeworks is a growing list of wild-grown species sold by mail order. The mushrooms are produced by wild-growing mushrooms in Asia, specifically in China and Vietnam. The mushrooms are named after the company that breeds them. They are shipped assemi-bulbs (or “magic mushrooms”) that contain the mushrooms and are grown in plastic bags. The items are then shipped to the customer who pays for the privilege of growing them.
Mushrooms are often sold as a dried powder, but you can also grow them at home if you’d like. The growing techniques used are often similar to those used for regular commercial crop production. The major difference is that the wild-grown mushrooms used by sporeworks are pure, unadulterated by other organisms or bacteria, and therefore, offer a purer product.
How To Grow Sporeworks Mushrooms
Sporeworks mushrooms are not easy to grow. They are not candidates for the average backyard mushroom patch. The type of soil used, the amount of sunlight provided, and the type of pot used all play a role in determining the type of mushrooms you can grow.
If you are growing in a commercial setting, you can use these techniques to increase the yield and quality of your product. If you are growing your own mushrooms, you can follow these steps to increase the yield and quality of your product.
- Contemplate the type of soil that is most appropriate for your area.
- If it is recommended that you add chemical fertilizers to increase the yield, do so. Otherwise, compost is a good option.
Why Grow Sporeworks Mushrooms?
First of all, it’s important to understand why you want to grow sporeworks mushrooms in the first place. You may want to grow them for personal use, for sale or for both personal and commercial use. The choice is yours. Sporeworks mushrooms are easy to grow and yield good results if you use the right growing techniques. They are also known for their unique, if not somewhat off-putting, smell.
This is what makes them so irresistible to insects and other invertebrates. If you are willing to sacrifice some of the more exotic and rare species that you might have a chance of growing to acquire these mushrooms, then, by all means, grow them.
Growing Conditions ForSporeworks Magic Mushrooms
If you are interested in growing sporeworks mushrooms at home, the natural choice is to grow them in a large, glass, or ceramic jar. The jar should be at least as large as the largest of your mushrooms and able to withstand the rigors of shipping. The jar should be well-ventilated to avoid sagging or molding.
A humidity level of 70-80% should be maintained around the jar to help keep the soil from getting too dry or too damp. Keep the light intensity as low as possible. The darkness is another thing to avoid. It is recommended that the mushrooms not be kept out of light for more than 2-3 days at a time. If your jar does not get enough light, the growth of various types of molds and bacteria can occur.
