Magic Mushrooms Grow Kit Tutorial

**Magic Mushroom Grow Kit Tutorial** last updated: JULY 2020   
 
With this pre-grown mycelium grow kit, you can grow your magic mushrooms in less than 2 weeks!   
 
Without any extra knowledge or ‘hard to get’ equipment, you can grow many harvests of Psilocybe Cubensis. Growing can’t get any easier than this!!
 
The mycelium is ‘pre-grown,’ which means that all the difficult work with fungi spores has been done in our lab. It is  not as simple as ‘plug and play,’ but as long as you follow our manual, you will have the best chance to succeed.  
 
The Magic Mushroom Grow Kit Tutorials are not in the package we send you; you can only find them via our website. 

4-step tutorial for all magic mushroom grow kits. 


Step 1 and 2 are a bit different depending if you’re growing an XOHM or a GOMAXMEGA.  Steps 3 & 4 are the same for all grow kits.

GO, MAX & MEGA

1 - Unboxing

STEP 1 – UNBOXING & SET UP (only for GO, MAX & MEGAs)

  • Take the magic mushroom grow kit, plastic bag and paperclip out of the box.
  • Remove the lid of the grow kit (store the lid properly).
  • Put the grow kit without the lid in the plastic bag.
  • Place the opening of the plastic bag underneath the bottom of the grow kit.
    (The micro-holes are pointing upwards and act as a ventilating system for the grow kit.)
  • Place the grow kit in an area with enough daylight, but not in direct sunlight.
  • The ideal room temperature for GO/MAX/MEGA is 21 º C – 31 º C.

 

Spraying: (once the grow kit is set up in the grow bag) 
Make sure you lightly spray water inside of the bag. Do not spray directly on the grow kit.
We recommend you do this every 2 days until the first pin heads appear. 

 

STEP 1 – UNBOXING & SET UP (only for X & OHM

  • Remove the grow kit lid, but save it for later. 
  • Take a clean fork and make holes all throughout the top layer
    (6 to 8 rows of holes is enough).   
    We make holes, so the grow kit can absorb water later.
  • Fill the grow kit with water (20 º C), until the edge. Close the grow kit with the lid, and let it soak for  12-24 hours.  
  • After soaking, remove the lid and carefully pour off the extra water.        
  • Put the grow kit inside the plastic bag. Close it by folding the top of the plastic bag.   
    Secure the top with the paperclips provided. Make sure your plastic bag is still straight up. 
  • Place the grow kit in an area with enough daylight, but not in direct sunlight.   
  • The ideal room temperature for X & OHM is between 18 and 28 º C.

 

Spraying: (once the grow kit is set up in the grow bag) 
Make sure you moisten the kit daily with a spray bottle (maximum 1-2 pumps).     
Do this until first the pinheads appear. 

2 - Pinheads

STEP 2 FIRST PINHEADS APPEAR (only for GO, MAX & MEGAs)  

  • The first pinheads will be visible in 1-3 weeks. 
  • From this moment, you can position the bag upright. Secure your plastic bag with the paper clips.  
     
    At this point, you also STOP SPRAYING.    

After 10 days: No Pinheads? 

  • Take the mycelium cake out of the plastic box 
  • Poor some room temperature tap water over the mycelium 
  • Put the mycelium back in the bag (without plastic box)
  • Close and fold the bag again, with the micro-holes up, so it will get enough oxygen.  

The top layer of the grow kit cake might have been too full of mycelium, and/or dried out a bit. By taking the cake out of the plastic box, the shrooms will grow from all sides. 

STEP 2 – FIRST PINHEADS APPEAR (only for X & OHM)   

The first pinheads will be visible in 1 to 3 weeks. At this moment, you also stop spraying. Be patient though; it may take some time before pinheads appear. 

3 - Shrooms

STEP 3 – SHROOMS MATURING (only for OHM & X)  

  • Most pinheads have grown larger than 3 cm.
  • In this phase, leave the bag slightly open, so that the moisture inside the grow bag can evaporate a little. You can do this, by releasing your paper clips and letting the top of the bag drop down. 
  • Too much moisture is not good. If there is a lot of moisture in your grow bag, make sure to air out the bag by fanning it.

As soon as the first shrooms are visible, it takes about one week before the shrooms are fully developed.

4 - Harvest

4 – HARVEST (ALL KITS)

The moment of harvesting is important.

  • The best time is just before the skin underneath the caps starts to loosen up. 
  • If the spores under the caps are still closed, but threaten to burst, start harvesting. 
  • Grab the stem gently and turn the mushroom to the left and than to the right and gently pull. This way you can remove the mushroom as complete as possible. By gently pulling, you prevent your grow kit from damaging. This way you can reuse for 2nd, 3rd, or even 4th harvests. 
*sometimes a GO/MAX/MEGA does not come in large ‘flushes.’ Instead, it gives a continuous flow of individual shrooms, one after another. That can continue up to 6 weeks. 
If so, start harvesting the shrooms that are ready and allow the other shrooms to continue growing. 

♻️ ADDITIONAL FLUSHES (for all kits)  
Good News! Our grow kits can produce several harvests. In fact, re-harvesting can be repeated 1 – 3 times.

After harvesting your first flush, clean the surface of the grow kits, by removing the old and not matured mushrooms. This gives the new mushrooms the ability to grow.

Mushrooms consist of about 90% water, so the grow kit needs a lot of new moisture for the next flush. Therefore:

  • Fill the grow kit with clean tap water.
  • Place the lid back on. Let the grow kit soak for 12-24 hours.
  • Open a corner of the lid, & drain the excess water.
  • From here you can follow the instructions from STEP 1.   

X & OHM: set bag up straight.

GO, MAX & MEGA: fold your bag horizontally with the micro-holes faced up.

🥢​ Consumption

Make sure you chew the shrooms very very well on an empty stomach.
That way all the active substances will be absorbed by your body.

Beginning trippers: Start with consuming 10 grams of fresh shrooms.

Advanced trippers: Start with consuming 20 grams of fresh shrooms.

Fresh Shroom Dosages

10 grams – light trip 
15 grams – medium trip
20/30 grams – strong trip
50 grams – heroic’ trip  

Dried Shroom Dosages

1/1.5 grams – light trip  
2.5 grams – medium trip 
3 grams – strong trip
5 grams – heroic’ trip

Magic Mushroom Grow Kits FAQs

After setting up your grow kit, it normally takes 7-10 days until you see pinheads. When temperatures are too cold or dry, it can take about 10-14 days.

It happens that a grow kit can take even up to 3 weeks, before mushrooms start growing. 
This varies on temperature and environment. The colder it is, the slower the growing process takes.

Please refer to our Manual page for further details. In short, you do not need to presoak your GO/MAX/MEGA kits. 

  • It can sometimes happen that the grow kit is too dense at the top.

When the mushrooms start to grow out of the sides, you can put the cake upright, as seen in the added picture. 



It gives the cake enough space for the grow bag. In this way, more air holes are exposed, so it is important to spray extra water inside the bag once a day. 

 

  • The black powder on top are the spores which the mushrooms release after having matured. This is very normal.     


 

It is best to harvest them before they start releasing the spores, because the spores can cover the grow kit so much that new pinheads cannot grow from it anymore. 

If there is a thick layer, then it is best to soak the cake completely underwater and to very gently and carefully rub the spores off with your fingers. Careful because it is very delicate.

 

We advise you to harvest all your mushrooms at once, if the majority of them are already mature.    


Unless you have one bigger shroom, and everything else growing, harvest the bigger shroom and wait for the other shrooms to mature for harvest.  

Unopened shroom grow kits can stay in the fridge for up to 2 months.

Fresh shrooms: 3 days in the fridge   

Dried shrooms: months, even years (potency will drop slowly). Stored in a dark bag. 

The OHM/Xs are made for higher yields and the MAX/GO/MEGA kits are more flexible, because it can survive extreme climates during shipping.

No. We only sell shroom grow kits. You can grow and harvest your own, which is very easy and sustainable.

Magic Mushrooms FAQs

Shrooms last in your system for about 24-72 hours.

Our shroom kits take about 1-3 weeks from beginning to harvest.
