Fresh Mushrooms Grow Kit

Magic Mushroom grow kit  

Here are our simple and easy instructions for growing your mushrooms using the Fresh Mushrooms Grow Kit. Follow these instructions precisely.

Growing with a Fresh Mushrooms Grow Kit is as easy as can be. Thanks to a completely colonised substrate, with no fillers, these kits are extremely low maintenance. There is no need to soak them to get them going for the first flush, and because of such a high mycelium content, you can expect some pretty huge yields! All you need is some patience and a willingness to mist the kit each day.

Note: These kits are 100% ready to grow. DO NOT submerge them for a soak. Also, some people like to use aluminium foil when growing mushrooms. DO NOT do this; it is not necessary for these kits. ALWAYS wash hands before working with a grow kit.


Lid Grow kit  

STEP 1

Remove all outer packaging then remove the plastic lid from the grow tub. Wash it under running water and set it aside for later – you will need it for later flushes.


Magic Mushroom grow bag  

STEP 2

Place the tub with lid off in the supplied grow bag. Make sure the bag is upright and the opening at the top. You will need daily access to the bag.


Paperclip Magic Mushroom grow kit  

STEP 3

Close the bag with the supplied paper clip. The bag has inbuilt filters, so you do not need to worry about airflow.


Magic Mushroom placing  

STEP 4

Place in an area with plenty daylight that maintains 18°C-28°C. DO NOT place in direct sunlight. Although mushrooms will grow within this temperature range, 23°C is the ideal temperature you need to maintain for optimal yields. A grow kit heating mat can help achieve this if you are in a cool area. Mushrooms require indirect sunlight to grow.


Spray Magic Mushroom grow kit  

STEP 5

While your grow bag creates an ideal, humid microenvironment for the mushrooms to grow, they are thirsty little fungi. As such, it is a good idea to mist the bag once a day with a misting spray bottle. Carefully open the bag and spray the inside of the bag a couple of times. This will keep water and humidity levels just right. DO NOT spray directly onto the tub or on growing mushrooms.


Important

DO NOT breath into the bag. ALWAYS wash hands before working with a grow kit. Mould spores can be anywhere, and you don’t want to increase the risk of contamination. As this is a fresh product, it is highly recommended you start growing as soon as you receive your kit. We do not recommend storing your kit. If you have no other choice, a grow kit may remain viable if stored in a fridge at 4°C-8°C. It may last up to 4 weeks here – but there is no guarantee. Be sure to put the tub in a sealed, clean plastic bag to minimise the risk of contamination.

Fruiting

Fresh Mushrooms Grow Kits are able to produce their first flush quickly. Pinheads usually start to appear after 5-16 days. Depending on temperature, the first flush could take up to 4 weeks to develop – low/high temperatures slow the process down. It usually takes 1 week for mushrooms to fully develop once caps have appeared.

Harvesting

Cleanliness is essential when it comes to harvesting your Fresh Mushrooms Grow Kit. Be sure to wash hands and forearms thoroughly with disinfecting soap, and wear sterile gloves when it comes to harvest. The optimal time to harvest your mushrooms is just before the veils tear on the mushrooms. Grab the base of the stalk, and with a gentle motion, twist and pull the mushroom away. It is important to twist and not simply pull, as doing so may damage the mycelium, negatively impacting the next flush. After picking, the stems may turn a bluish hue. This is normal.


Additional Harvest  

STEP 6

Additional harvests

These kits do not just produce one harvest of mushrooms. It is possible to obtain multiple flushes. To do so, fill the tub with cold tap water after you have finished your first harvest – this is known as cold-shock and reinvigorates the mycelium. Place the lid back on the tub (you have hopefully kept it as we instructed). Now leave the tub for 12 hours to soak. After 12 hours, open a corner of the lid and carefully drain out excess water. Now all you need to do is go back to step one in these instructions, and you should be well on your way to another harvest of bountiful magic goodness! This can be repeated multiple times.
