Psycolybe Fanaticus, established by Robert McPherson, is probably one of the best known distributors of mushroom. He is best known for the method that he pioneered for cultivating mushrooms. This method was known PF tek.  After reading more information about this method, I realized the reason why this method became so popular is that it can be done at home. There is no need for fancy and over complicated mycology supplies.

Wild mushrooms can be very hard to find, and if people are not exactly sure what they are picking, they could end up being poisoned. This is exactly why rather than picking it from the wild, others choose to grow it themselves. It seems to make a lot more sense to grow mushrooms at home than risking it in the jungle.


What It Was Used For

PF tek is a process that can be used on a wide variety of mushrooms. It can definitely be very helpful for growing different kinds of gourmet mushrooms; however, this particular method of cultivating is more commonly associated with growing magical mushrooms.

I have always wondered what makes this type of mushroom so magical. Apparently, it has some sort of hallucinogenic effect on people. No wonder magic mashrooms are also known as psychedelic mushrooms.

Fortunately, there is some good that it can do for people. It has been known to help deal with severe headaches. Before actually taking this, people must know if it is legal in their area or not. They must be supervised by a professional for safety reasons.


The Simple Process

I was actually very shocked to find out that almost all of the substances that are needed to start a mushroom garden can be found in numerous grocery stores. The PF tek method requires brown rice flour and vermiculite, a mineral that can be bought in a several home depot shops. It is placed in a sterilized jar where mushroom seeds or spores are injected with a little bit of water.

In a nutshell, this is the PF tek method. It is an ideal way of growing mushrooms indoors. After reading this method, I quickly noticed that growing mushrooms is nothing like growing ordinary plants. Some actually find shroom growing so much easier, and it will give results in a shorter amount of time.


Buying Spores

It is all just a matter of which one they would like to grow. When looking shrooms spores, I usually look for a shop that has a huge variety of it. This will give a lot more options. I have found out that for people who want different kinds of shroom kits. They can just go to their computers and buy it online.


Reaping What Has Been Sown

I think the most rewarding part of growing any kind of shroom is seeing it fully grown. It is very different from seeing pictures of mushroom because I grew it myself. It is even more gratifying if the mushroom is edible. People can literally enjoy the taste of the fruits of their labor. No wonder oyster and morel mushrooms are so popular. They are not only fun to cultivate, but they also taste amazing.
