How long does it take to grow your own magic mushrooms?

This depends on the method you are using – the fastest way is a psilocybe mushroom grow kit. It comes ready to activate upon arrival, and after activation – you can expect to harvest your first fresh magic mushroom flush (yield) after 2-4 weeks. After that, it might take 1-2 weeks to get each new flush, and in most cases, you can expect 3-4 stable flushes from a single growkit (if you don’t contaminate it and keep it in good condition), with a maximum of 7 flushes. It is believed that 2nd and 3rd flushes will have the biggest yields with the most stable potency, and from there the size of the flush will gradually become smaller and smaller with each subsequent flush you harvest.

If you are planning to grow your own magic mushrooms from spores to fruiting bodies (growkits come already colonized, meaning you save time on the process) – it might be up to 2-3 months before the first harvest of your magic mushrooms. This is because you will have to inoculate and colonize your mushroom spawn, which might take several weeks (3-6 on average) to happen based on the amount of spawn you want to have. After that, the process can be similar to a growkit – where you just grow your mushrooms right away, or you can even spend some more time colonizing an even bigger spawn to maximize the yield potential.

In order to estimate the real-time needed for “from-spore-to-fruiting-body” magic mushroom growth – you have to clearly understand the whole step by step process and the steps you will be taking on this wonderful mycology journey.
