7 Easy-to-Digest Lessons

Episodes

You’ll get a vocab lesson on all of the terms you’ll need to know to be fluent in growing your own fungi.

In this episode, we outline the supplies you’ll need for inoculation and subsequent steps of the grow process.

Here you’ll learn how to “plant” your spores, or inoculate your substrate—the first step in the mushroom cultivation process.

During this episode we show you how to make your bulk substrate for your fruiting chamber (a.k.a. terrarium or monotub).

In this episode, we show you how to finish setting up your fruiting chamber by transferring your colonized mycelium from the instant rice bags into the terrarium.

 

You’ll learn what to expect when your mushrooms begin to fruit. We also describe some common possible contaminants to look out for.

In the final episode, we harvest our mushrooms and dry them.

Why This Course?

Unlike with online forums like Reddit, with our course, you get access to leading mycology teachers who will support you every step of the way.

From prep to harvest, the whole process takes about nine weeks.

Once you have the setup, you can use it forever, to grow an infinite supply of mushrooms for your friends and family. All the supplies cost less than $100.

You don’t need extra space—in fact, a space the size of a litter box should be enough room.

You’ll get access to an invite-only, private DoubleBlind community to bond with and receive support from your fellow growers.

KATHY, DoubleBlind Mushroom Student



Glory Hallelujah I saw that DoubleBlind was offering a class on how to grow mushrooms!

"The entire journey from supplies to harvest was really magical for me. The 9 week class provided step by step instructions by using a written guide and videos which were excellent. I know this sounds like this is too good to be true but it was true and it was amazing how much effort went into this class and how much attention we received. We had a team of highly qualified mycologists."

The information was very good and thorough. I enjoyed the humor and style of the videos. However, things moved very quickly in the video and I had to rewind often to get the gist.
