Magic Mushrooms Grow kit Tutorial

Magic Mushrooms Grow kit Tutorial

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. 


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.

Place the grow kit in an area with enough daylight, but not in direct sunlight.

The ideal room temperature 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.

  • he 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. 


  • 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.

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.

NB: *sometimes the kit 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. 


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. 


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


What are magic mushrooms?

Magic mushrooms, a.k.a shrooms, contain the hallucinogenic compounds called psilocybin. When consumed, this compounds lead you to hallucinate or have a “trip.”

What are the effects of magic mushrooms?

The effects of shrooms vary by person, dosage, and environment. 

The following are a general list of effects and do not include & define all shroom experiences: 

Positive Effects 



*Spiritual insight  


*Feelings of wonder 

*Better flow of ideas (on creative and philosophical ordeals)  

Neutral Effects 

*Emotional sensitivity 

*Changes in time perception 

*Light sensitivity 

*Visual hallucinations (open and closed-eye) 

*Pupil Dilation 


Negative Effects  

*Intense fear





How long does a magic mushroom trip last?

A magic mushroom trip typically lasts 4-8 hours, depending on how heavy your dosage is. It takes about 30 minutes-1 hour to take effect. Sometimes even 2 hours. 

How long do shrooms last in your system?

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

Can you die from shrooms?

As the great Terence McKenna once said “Only from astonishment.”

If you want to know more, can you overodse on magic .  

Can shrooms give you brain damage?

No, shrooms cannot give you brain damage

Can magic mushrooms cure depression?

Fundamentally, magic  mushrooms (psilocybin) is not a cure for symptoms, illnesses or mental disorders. Rather it may give insightfulness and objective perspective for why a person is depress, therefore offering clearness for the cloudy mind.

How long do mushroom grow kits take to grow?

Typically, our shroom kits take about 1-3 weeks from beginning to harvest. 

It also depends variably on the climate. The warmer the temperatures, the faster the flush. In cooler temperatures, it can take longer. In the winter or in generally cold rooms, we recommend heating mats to jumpstart your grow kits

How long can I store an unopened grow kit?

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

How long do pinheads take to appear?

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. 

Nothing has grown for a long that normal?

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.

What is the shelf life of my mushroom harvest?

Fresh shrooms: 3 days in the fridge   

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

Why are mushrooms growing from the side of the kit?

  • 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. 

What is that black powder growing on my kit?

  • 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.

Do you sell shrooms?

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