The Psilocybin Mushroom Bible is the first new book on magic mushroom cultivation published since 2006. It is the only full-color book on the subject, and features over 40 step-by-step photo guides detailing every step of the complex mushroom cultivation process, making it hands down the largest and most comprehensive book ever written on the subject. Readers will learn how to produce their own magic mushrooms quickly, safely, and effectively, without wasting time on the out-of-date and ineffective techniques espoused in older mushroom cultivation guidebooks. All the previous books on the subject utilize out-of-focus black and white photographs to detail the mushroom cultivation process. The Psilocybin Mushroom Bible uses high resolution full-color step-by-step photos to explain the entire process, so that readers understand and can actually see everything they need to in order to grow magic mushrooms. This book truly is the most advanced guide to magic mushroom cultivation ever created, and features step-by-step photographic instructions on each step of the process, including: How to sterilize the equipment used to produce mushrooms How to build the containers used during home mushroom cultivation Safety measures for preventing contamination of the mushroom cultures Comprehensive instructions on the best methods of producing magic mushrooms A guide to consuming magic mushrooms safely and enjoyably A guide to consumption and cooking with mushrooms. Instructions on how to dry the mushrooms so that they last much longer Instructions on scaling up your home grower to ensure consistent success. Dr. Mandrake uses his doctoral studies in mushroom botany to detail the history and botany of psilocybin mushrooms to give readers an idea of their prevalence throughout human history. The book then expands to show how Dr. Mandrake’s research has allowed him to develop the most effective methods of cultivating magic mushrooms ever used. The book is highly detailed and comprehensive, allowing readers to learn the entire process required to produce perfect magic mushrooms every time. Previous books have often failed to provide the scientific basis for commonly used home cultivation techniques, thus leaving a large gap in the cultivator’s understanding of the mushroom growing process. This new book contains all the information necessary to truly understand the home growing methods within, plus hundreds of highly detailed color photographs so that the sterilization and cultivation process is clear to readers. Furthermore, since it has been a decade since the last book on this subject was written, many of the older books have failed to take advantage of new information and equipment. This book explains them all, allowing all mushroom enthusiasts to learn how to grow their own shrooms. This book will appeal not only to budding mushroom enthusiasts, but also to readers who purchased previous books on the subject but were disappointed because the instructions were not clear, and the photographs were too blurry and lacked the color required to properly understand the mushroom cultivation process. The end of the book discusses current research into psilocybin as a medicine, as well as methods for consuming magic mushrooms, from simply eating them, to making tea, and even turning the mushrooms into delicious meals to be enjoyed with friends, or discreet pills to be enjoyed discreetly anywhere at any time. Virginia Haze’s extensive experience with mushroom cultivation as well as her photographic and writing experience mean the book is beautifully photographed and written.

One January morning in 1734, cloth merchant Peter Collinson hurried down to the docks at London's Custom House to collect cargo just arrived from John Bartram, his new contact in the American colonies. But it was not reels of wool or bales of cotton that awaited him, but plants and seeds...Over the next forty years, Bartram would send hundreds of American species to England, where Collinson was one of a handful of men who would foster a national obsession and change the gardens of Britain forever, introducing lustrous evergreens, fiery autumn foliage and colourful shrubs.They were men of wealth and taste but also of knowledge and experience like Philip Miller, author of the bestselling Gardeners Dictionary , and the Swede Carl Linnaeus, whose standardised botanical nomenclature popularised botany as a genteel pastime for the middle-classes; and the botanist-adventurer Joseph Banks and his colleague Daniel Solander who both explored the strange flora of Tahiti and Australia on the greatest voyage of discovery of modern times, Captain Cook's Endeavour. This is the story of these men - friends, rivals, enemies, united by a passion for plants - whose correspondence, collaborations and squabbles make for a riveting human tale which is set against the backdrop of the emerging empire, the uncharted world beyond and London as the capital of science.From the scent of the exotic blooms in Tahiti and Botany Bay to the gardens at Chelsea and Kew, and from the sounds and colours of the streets of the City to the staggering vistas of the Appalachian mountains, The Brother Gardeners tells the story how Britain became a nation of gardeners.
