PF-Tek MycoPots² (Grow Kit)
Developed as a quick and easy way to grow psychedelic magic mushrooms like Psilocybe Cubensis, but…
PF-tek is also widely used to grow legal gourmet species like Oyster mushrooms!
Maybe the easiest kit for you to grow mushrooms from a syringe.
It might be dated, at nearly 30 years old, but PF-Tek is more popular than ever right now.
It’s still regarded as the best beginner all-in-one mushroom grow kit due to its simplicity and speed.
You will need to source a gourmet mushroom solution yourself to use with this kit.
What you get
- 2x 280ml MycoPots of sterilised organic brown rice flour substrate (enhanced with coffee, vermiculite and gypsum)
- Both MycoPots come within a breathable SteriTub™ to keep them ultra clean until use. You can also incubate your pots inside!
- Clean air exchange via the white HEPA filters
- Self-healing rubber injection ports (2 per MycoPot)
- 5 x Alcohol Wipes
- 2 x Hand Wipes
- 1 x Facemask
- 1 x Pair of Sterile Gloves
- XL Humidity Grow Tent
- Printed Instructions
Requires 2ml of a gourmet spore or liquid culture syringe (inject 0.5ml per rubber port)

Experience a problem with any product? Don’t panic!
Clean products are what we specialise in, it’s our bread and butter – and we’re good at it. We have to be.
Sterile technique is like driving – you can’t learn it by reading, you need to be practising it always.
While most contamination reports are statistically more likely to be down to beginner error, it’s not always the case.
Sometimes it may actually be us. Does that mean we don’t know what we are doing or that we’re rookies at this?
No. And here’s why.
We regularly purchase live gourmet mother spawn from one of, if not the largest, most accredited mycology business in the world.
This company is BIG and they even run week-long training courses in mycology and have the most incredible set up worth a fortune.
Even they make mistakes. We’ve had to get in touch with them a couple of times after receiving contaminated spawn.
The point we’re trying to make here is that even the masters of mycology mess up. Nature is unpredictable and we all make mistakes.
Although we don’t offer refunds on our products, we will send a voucher for it’s replacement.
Irregardless who is at fault.
A second chance on us 🙂
*If we believe this is being abused by anyone, we reserve the right to remove it at any time.
Although this grow kit can be used without a SAB, it’s good practise and recommended to use one.
We have SAB’s available, but you can always build yourself something – it doesn’t need to be fancy!
…some people even build SAB’s with a cardboard box (inferior but better than open air).
We don’t wait around

My room temperatures is always around 17°, is this too low when using spores and if so what should I use to increase the temperature of hot heat mats?

It’s doable at that temp. It will be slower, but at least the fruiting bodies will be more dense. Keep away from heat mats, so many people ruin our kits with heat mats - they are terrible advice which just will not leave the internet. The heat is not roundly balanced, creating everything from cakes drying out, cracking, stalling, excessive condensation leading to easy pathways for contams to get in.

As it says on the product information; gourmet spores or liquid culture solution.
We don’t have gourmet species available but are working on them as we speak.
