A Handbook for Psilocybin Enthusiasts
This book is strictly about growing magic mushrooms, specifically
the psilocybe cubensis mushroom.
The step by step 1,2,3 format makes it a useful enough reference even
for the lay person to follow. The methods described in the book will
work, but it is dated, things are easier now.

How To Grow Magic Mushrooms
From A Spore Syringe On Rice
Preparation of the Substrate.
Mushrooms are grown on a substrate of nutrients. Just as a common
house plant is grown in a pot of soil, mushrooms can be grown on a
cake of substrate material. The big difference is that the substrate must
be free of competing bacteria and molds in order for the process to be
successful. Any contamination of the substrate will result in failure of
Prepare the tops of the culture jars so that they can be in place, on the
jars when inoculating the jars with the spore syringe. Part of the reason
this system works so well in the non-sterile kitchen environment is the
fact that the sterilized substrate is never exposed to air born
contaminates. Get a small nail and use the hammer to poke 4 holes in
the lid of each canning jar. See the following figure:
Decide in how many jars you are going to initiate cultures. The
average terrarium that is built will hold 6 rice cakes but you may have
some jars destroyed by contamination and some jars colonize quicker
than others. It is unlikely that every jar you prepare will be ready to be
placed in the terrarium at the same time. The rice flour and vermiculite
are cheap enough that it makes sense to do a dozen jars.
For each 1/2 pint jar mix 2/3 cup vermiculite and 1/4 cup brown rice
flour in a mixing bowl. Adaptation-23 When these ingredients are well
mixed, add 1/4

sometimes attains a length of several feet Calamus grows in marshy or
wet habitats, primarily in the Prairie Bioregion. The dried root
(rhizome or rootstock) has long been used in medicine and as an
ingredient of certain flavors, liqueurs and perfumes. The rhizome
contains a volatile oil, which can be obtained by steam distillation,
and that has a peculiar, but pleasant, rather sweet odor and flavor. The
rhizomes are collected in the spring or late fall, and are washed, dried
artificially at moderate heat and freed of fibrous rootlets. The fiberlike
rootlets can be removed before drying, but are usually removed
after drying because they become brittle and are more easily
dislodged. The "stripped" roots are more aromatic than those which
have been peeled.
The dry, unpeeled footstocks are known to have both carminative
(prevents the formation or causes the expulsion of gas or air in the
intestinal tract) and anthelmintic (destroys or expels intestinal worms)
Calamus was prized by the Native Americans of the prairies for its
medicinal, ritualistic and dietary uses. The Pawnee name for the plant is
"kahtsha itu," which means "medicine lying in the water." The
Osage know calamus as "peze boao'ka," or "flat herb." To the Lakota
Sioux, the plant is "sinkpe tawote," which translates as "muskrat
food." They also refer to the root as "sunkace," or "dog penis,"
probably because of the shape of the flower stalk.
The Osage chew the root for its distinctive flavor, while the Lakota
Sioux eat the leaves, stalks and roots (the plant's young, tender leaves

are a welcome addition to tossed green salads). The Omaha ingest boiled
roots, often for medicinal reasons.
Calamus grows in the wild in water, but can be cultivated in
practically any good, fairly moist soil. It usually fares well in moderately
dry soils which would sustain crops of com or potatoes. The plants can
be readily propagated from divisions of old roots. They should be set out
early in the fall, planted one foot apart in rows and adequately covered.
During the growing season, the plants require frequent and thorough
In the fall, the roots are harvested. A spade or plow may be used.
The tops, along with about an inch of the rootstock, are cut off and used
for new plantings.
Calamus can be grown from seeds, which are commercially
available in many parts of the world. Burma and Sri Lanka are two
countries where the plant is widely cultivated. Seeds are available from a
number of sources in North America, including: Prairie Moon Nursery
