What is a magic mushroom grow kit? A magic mushroom grow kit is a simple way to grow your own magic mushrooms.
Most magic mushroom grow kits is with spores. They contain the spores of the Psilocybe Cubensis mushroom species
What is in a magic mushroom grow kit?
The magic mushroom grow kit contains:
- One grow box with substratum containing living mycelium of the P.Cubensis (the spores that have developed)
- Transparent grow bag with airfilter
- 2 x paperclip
Magic mushroom substrate
The substrate in the magic mushroom grow kit consists of rye, vermiculite and perlite (can be removed).
The development of the cubensis spores into the mycelium has already been done in a sterile laboratory. The mycelium is hibernating because of the cold environment.
The only thing that needs to be done to grow magic mushrooms out of this mycelium is putting the grow box in a warm, light and humid environment.
The substrate and mycelium needs to get moist first. You can do this by soaking also called dunking the substrate in water. The vermiculite and perlite will absorb lots of water and keep the grow kit moist.
Use water from a cold water tap or bottled water if you think the tap water is not to be trusted. It can have some bacteria that cold contaminate the kit.
As a general rule you can use if it is safe for you to drink you can use it for the grow kit.

Magic Mushroom Grow kit Instructions
Humidity for magic mushrooms
To create and keep a warm and humid environment you use the transparent grow bag with micronfilter. Consider it as a green house were you grow plants and vegetables. The grow bag keeps moist and air in for the mushroom grow kit to' feed' on. Humidity must be high around 90% at least. You can keep the humidity up by spraying water with a water spray every day or two days after the pinning of the mushrooms.
Best temperature for growing magic mushrooms
The optimum temperature for mushrooms to develop out of the mycelium is 24-25 degrees. The temperature can vary with the different strain variations. Keep the grow kit out of direct sunlight. Sunlight can have negative effects on the growth of your psilocybe cubensis mushrooms.
When harvest magic mushrooms?
After 10-30 days the first mushrooms can grow out of your grow kit. The developing time of the mushrooms can vary with the different strain variations. Within a few days you can pick the magic mushrooms from your grow kit
Always make sure the grow kit is handled in a clean environment. Always wash your hands. Use gloves when you soak the grow kit or harvest. Use clean and fresh water for misting the kit. All this to make sure you lower the risk of contamination.
