Grow Guide for our Magic Mushrooms Grow Kits.
When you order a Magic Mushroom Grow Kit, you will receive the following products inside:
- 1 x Mushroom Grow kit
- 1 x Paperclip
- 1 x Growbag
Before you begin, there are a few things to consider.
When working with very sensitive equipment, keep everything as clean and orderly as possible. Hands should be washed thoroughly with soap, and the sink and tap should be clean as well. It’s possible that this is already the first source of germs.
Please choose the best location for your kit to grow. In order to grow, the Kit will need to be exposed to natural light (but keep the kit out of direct sunlight and do not put the kit under a lamp or near a heater or heat source). The optimal temperature ranges from 20 to 250 degrees Celsius. When the temperature drops below 180°C, a heating mat is recommended; however, the temperature should not exceed 350°C. Make certain that the surface and
Remove the lid from the kit, but don’t throw it away (you will need this for the next step and the following flushes).
Take a clean fork and carefully make some holes in the top layer of the kit, divided regularly. 6 to 8 rows of holes is enough. This is important for the kit to absorb the water better.
Fill the kit with Lukewarm water. Replace the lid. And let it soak for 1 hour
After soaking. Remove the lid of the kit and carefully pour out all the excess water. Allow the grow kit to drain for 5 to 10 seconds. (make sure you keep the lid for the next flushes)
Pour a cup or two with lukewarm water into the grow bag. (0,25 litres for the 1200CC Kit or 0,5 litres fort he 2100CC Kit).
Put the Growkit in the Growbag. Make sure the water does not go over the edge of the grow kit.
Close the bag of the kit by folding the top of the bag carefully and secure it with the paperclip.
Place the kit in the location where you want it to grow. Close the bag until the first pre-pins begin to grow. This could take a week or two, and in the winter, it could take up to three weeks. It’s crucial to keep the bag closed. The kit demands a high quantity of CO2 at this stage and does not require oxygen. Patience is crucial at this period of development.
You can open the bag after you see the pre-pins. Leave the gear in the room. The kit requires fresh water and oxygen at this stage of development. You can now open it on a regular basis to let the fresh air in and the CO2 out. Spray the kit every day (maximum 1-2 pumps on the edge of the bag) to keep it moist (please try to avoid spraying directly on the mushrooms). Always use fresh water that is free of contaminants. Make sure your hands are clean before opening the bag, and watch your breath (try to avoid breathing in the bag or on the kit).
When the prepping begins to sprout, it will be like mushrooms.
Just before the membrane under the cap starts to come away, the mushrooms should be harvested. Harvesting the mushroom: gently hold the stem, twist it left and right, and then gently pull it up to bring the mushroom out completely. It is possible that new mushrooms will grow in this manner.
Prepare yourself for your second Flush!
After your initial harvest, make sure to thoroughly clean the Growkit’s surface, as well as any old or dead mushrooms. Rehydrate the kit with water and place it in the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours (at a temperature no lower than 20 degrees Celsius). Pour out all of the water the next day and start over at step 5.
It’s important to remember that mushroom cultivation from a kit is a natural process. Each kit is distinctive in its own right. You need first use your own “magic” to obtain your “magic” mushrooms. It’s all about the lighting, the temperature, and the atmosphere. We include both the equipment and the instruction manual. The rest is up to you to fill in. Remember that our kits are designed to be grown in the grow bag that we provide. It’s entirely up to you if you want to experiment with a fruiting chamber or a different setting, and you do it at your own risk. We advocate utilizing the grow bag because we have experience with it.
If the kit hasn’t shown any signs of growth after 3-4 weeks, it’s possible it’s sleeping. A Cold Shock could be beneficial at this point. You soak the kit in water again, place it in the fridge overnight with the lid on, and reassemble it as previously (continue from step 4 again). Keep in mind that this is a reset, so you’ll have to start counting again from the beginning.
Patience is essential in the mushroom-growing process. Please send us a message with some clear images, the batch number, a description of the kit, and the setting if your kit is not showing any growth indications at week 3 following the cold shock (temperature, setting, lighting, etc.) a lot of times we can advise you to make a change in this.
