Along with concise directions, this guidebook is highly visual, with illustrations, photos, and charts accompanying the text. An extensive 32-page color section lets you watch the mushrooms grow with photographs that meticulously record the steps in each process from beginning to end of the mushroom life cycle. Color photos help any cultivator see what a fully colonized media should look like, identify mushroom parts and ripeness, as well as troubleshoot common problems. Each featured species of Psilocybe is also pictured to assist with identification.
