Mycelium is the vegetative part of a fungus, consisting of a mass of branching, thread-like hyphae.
Mycelium has the potential to grow into much larger structures, also known as magic mushrooms. The mushrooms that we eat are just a small, visible part of the fungi organism.
In the laboratory our mycologists cultivate different cubensis mushroom species as it forms in an environment where conditions are optimal. Under lab conditions, the mycelium can be persuaded to build a particular structure through the control of the variables of temperature, CO2, humidity, and airflow. The growth of mycelium fibers present as a visible speck after just a few hours.
The mycelium in our grow kit is the white stuff on the substrate. This white layer is actually the mycelium colonizing the substrate. It takes care of the substrate, making sure that the substrate is “eating well”. But hey! Our kits are completely maintenance-free thanks to a fully colonized substrate without fillers. You hardly have to do anything to get your first flush with high levels of psilocin and psilocybin. No water needed at least during the first part of the process.
