The Process Involves 3 Primary Phases +
A Little Patience:
Fits Inside Your Closet
One problem with many grow kits is that they require large containers that can take up a lot of space.
This grow kit uses sterilized mycobags that can fit in the back of a closet, in a cabinet, or even in a large drawer.
The Third Wave Grow Kit is designed to work with just about any living situation.

LCD hygrometer to make sure your mushrooms have the ideal environment for a bountiful harvest.
Powder-free vinyl gloves so you don’t accidentally contaminate your mushrooms during the process.
The only thing you need are the spores!
Why Doesn’t The Kit Include Spores?
The choice of mushroom species is 100% up to you! There are dozens of incredible, edible, sacred mushrooms to pick from.
We can recommend trusted vendors who supply high quality spores. This makes the whole process as simple as possible.
You will see recommendations for high quality spore suppliers in the course material.
NOTE: Unfortunately, spores are illegal to possess in most locations in California, Idaho, and Georgia, so spore suppliers are unlikely to ship spores to those states.
Instant Access to
Third Wave’s Mushroom
As a part of your Mushroom Growing Kit, you also get instant access to our detailed, step-by-step Mushroom Growing Course. It includes a text manual and detailed videos walking you through the whole process.
You get to see exactly what the process looks every step of the way so you always know what to do.
No guessing. No confusion. Just clear instructions for best results.
Cultivate a Personal Relationship with Your Plants
One of the hidden benefits of cultivating your own mushrooms is the relationship you develop with the fungus.
For millennia, plant medicines were harvested directly from nature. Growing your own puts you in touch with our common ancestral experience.
This relationship adds a new dimension, a new layer of meaning to your mushroom experience.
An Economical Way to Enjoy Sacred, Medicinal Mushrooms!
Purchasing quality mushrooms can be expensive.
A single gram of many popular mushroom species can cost as much as $10 per gram.
With the Third Wave Grow Kit, the average harvest ranges from 1-4 ounces (28-108 grams). That means a single harvest can yield $280-$1,080 worth of your very own mushrooms.
The Third Wave Grow Kit will more than pay for itself in just one harvest.
Plus, if you follow the course guidelines and have a little patience, you may even be able to get 3-4 harvests from one kit. The return on your investment is more than worth the time and energy.
All you need to do is start growing!
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you ship internationally?
Can I buy the Growing Mushroom Course separately?
The Growing Mushroom Course is part of the Grow Kit package and at the moment is not sold separately. We are currently considering whether to make it a separate product in the future.
Can I buy spores from another supplier?
Yes, of course you can! Our recommended suppliers are reliable and high quality, but the choice is yours!
However, because spores are illegal to possess in California, Idaho, and Georgia, we do not currently sell the Mushroom Grow Kit to residents of those states. We apologize for any inconvenience.
I’m overwhelmed with the choices of spores online. What type of spores should I look for as a beginner?
One of the most challenging parts is deciding which strain to purchase. There are hundreds of varieties of Psilocybe cubensis that differ in physical appearance, spore production, fruiting potential, and potency. Golden Teachers are a great strain to learn with, as they are more forgiving and less complicated to grow than other varieties. Other popular strains to consider include Mexican cubensis, Amazonian, Cambodian, and Columbian. If you want to try something a little different, there’s also Paneolus cyanescens, also known as Blue Meanies. We recommend conducting more of your own research before purchasing. Here are some articles to get you started:

Will this work for other multiple varieties of mushrooms?
Yes! You can cultivate many varieties of mushrooms with this same kit, including oysters, button mushrooms, Portobellos, and more.
How many spore syringes will I need to inoculate the kit?
You will only require 3 milliliters of the spore solution to colonize 1.05 quart or 1 liter of the substrate. One syringe has 20 ml of the mushroom spore solution, which is enough to inoculate between 6 and 7 liters of substrate.
Please take a look at the following links regarding spore syringes and growing mushrooms:

How to use a mushroom syringe?
Can I use different types of spores in one grow kit?
You can use two different strains, one for each bag your grow kit provides. If you do decide to use different strains, however, you should only use one spore genetic per bag. Using two different strains in one bag is not recommended for a successful first-time grow.
How many harvests can I make with this kit?
With proper care, you can cultivate three to four harvests of mushrooms with this kit. That is a LOT of mushrooms.
Why is sterilization so important?
The grain base the mushrooms eat for food is also great food for mold. If mold gets into the mycobags, it can kill the mushrooms or make them toxic to consume. That’s why everything in our kit comes pre-sterilized and ready to use. It’s the fastest way to get started. We go into much more detail in the course that’s included with the kit.
How much space will this grow kit require?
To keep things compact, this kit is set up to let you grow mushrooms directly inside pre-sterilized mycobags. Because there’s no need for big tubs to cultivate your mushrooms, you can grow these mushrooms in a confined space, like a closet.
I have children/pets in my house, is this safe?
Yes, it’s perfectly safe. Nothing in this kit is toxic. However, it is a good idea to keep it in an area any curious young ones or furry friends won’t accidentally get into and contaminate.
I heard mushrooms came from outer space. Will this make aliens show up at my house?
Unfortunately, we cannot make guarantees for the behavior of extraterrestrial beings.
Can I get a refund if the mushrooms don’t grow?
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the success of your cultivation. There are many variables that come into play there. That’s why we highly recommend you carefully follow the course instructions and use the highest-quality spores possible. If your kit is broken or incomplete, we will happily issue a refund.
