Magic Mushroom Grow Kit Ecuador by Mondo®
This thick-stemmed magic mushroom with spade-shaped hats comes from the Ecuadorian highlands. The Ecuador magic mushroom kit grows dense flushes of shrooms. Connoisseurs love to cultivate this Ecuador cubensis because of the clean, spiritual effects and lack of body high that the Magic Mushrooms deliver. Recommended for people with experience in mushrooms cultivation.
Years of planning and testing has resulted in the next generation of Mondo® Ecuador Magic Mushroom grow kits. The Mondo® Grow Kit Ecuador has become better than it ever was. Compared to the first generation of Psilocybe cubensis Mondo® Ecuador Grow Kit, the next generation is improved with:
- Larger yields, more mushrooms
- More flushes*
- Better resistance against contaminations
- Different, but easier instructions
*some strains produce more flushes than others. The first three flushes are the largest.
Meet the new standard of easy grow kits
The Psilocybe cubensis Mondo® Ecuador Magic Mushroom grow kit is slightly different than the grow kits you might have used before. This is seen only in the substrate recipe and is a secret not just shared with everyone. Not even with us!
Just like the previous and other easy grow kits, you do not need to use additional spores. During the laboratory process, the spores have developed into mycelium inside the substrate (the cake) in the grow box. The mycelium has fully colonized the substrate and is ready to grow mushrooms.
How to store the grow kit correctly
It is recommended to start the cultivation process right away. If you decide to start growing later, you may store the grow kit in the refrigerator (2°C to 8°C) for 2 weeks. First, wrap the grow kit in a plastic shopping bag and close it well.
- 1x grow box – This contains substrate with active mycelium (the cake)
- 1x grow bag – The bag has a micron filter to keep contaminants out
- 1x paperclip – For closing the grow bag.
- Misting Bottle – Misting is needed for the humidity level
- Potable water – For misting and soaking
- Clean environment – Work clean to give other fungi and bacteria (micro organisms) no chance to contaminate.
We recommend using
- Surgical gloves
- Disinfectant for hands
- Disinfectant for surfaces
- Soaking Bag
- Thermo mat (when room temperature drops below 18°C)
How to prepare the room and yourself before you begin
- Close any open windows. Wind or draft may bring microorganisms that can contaminate the Psilocybe cubensis 'Ecuador' Magic Mushroom grow kit.
- When taking out the grow box with the cake from the carton box, put it on a disinfected surface. If this surface would not be clean, microorganisms may attach to the grow box and will flourish inside the Psilocybe cubensis 'Ecuador' Magic Mushroom grow kit and will contaminate the grow box.
- Make sure you work with clean hands and arms. We recommend using surgical gloves or a good disinfectant when handling the kit. You should use a facemask to avoid breathing into the grow bag and on the cake.
Starting the process
- Fill the box with fresh, potable water. Close the grow box well and let it soak for 12 hours.
- After 12 hours, pour the surplus of water out of the grow box.
- Place the grow box inside the grow bag. The open end of the bag should point upwards.
- Remove the lid from the grow box. Rinse the lid and store it in the carton box.
- Fold the open end of grow bag twice; do not cover the micron filter.
- Place the paperclip on the fold, so the bag stays closed. Now the Psilocybe cubensis 'Ecuador' Magic Mushroom grow kit is ready to grow.
- Place the Psilocybe cubensis 'Ecuador' Magic Mushroom grow kit inside the carton box, on top of the ziploc with lid.
the instructions for the Mondo® Ecuador magic mushroom grow kit.
The ideal temperature is 24°C. Do not have the temperature drop under 18°C and not exceed 29°C. To keep the temperature from dropping under the 18°C, you can use ato maintain the ideal temperature. A thermo mat is a must-have in the winter or colder regions of the world.
The Psilocybe cubensis Mondo® Ecuador Magic Mushroom Grow Kit only needs light for the mycelium to ‘understand’ it has reached the surface. Only then, mushrooms will grow. A few hours of fluorescent/artificial light or indirect sunlight a day is more than enough. Direct sunlight kills the mycelium, so avoid the sun to shine directly on the grow kit.
Water / Misting
The day after you start the process you begin with misting. Open the grow bag by removing the paperclip. Do not spray directly on the cake but spray one time against every side of the bag. So you mist once a day, four sprays. Misting also vents fresh oxygen inside the bag. Right after misting, close the bag again with the paperclip.
If the conditions are optimal, you can expect the first small mushrooms (the pins) to appear between 5 and 16 days. This also depends on the strain. Some cubensis strains grow slower than others.
The mushrooms come up in groups. This can be a small or large group. That depends on the strain. A growth like this is called a flush. Mushrooms are almost never ripe at the same time. You can get more than one flush out of a kit. The first two flushes are the largest. When more flushes come, they will be smaller than the previous one.
Mushrooms are ripe and should be picked when the veil between the hat and the stem has just torn. Don’t wait much longer. Use surgical gloves or disinfect your hands, wrists and arms. Pick the mushrooms that are ripe and let the others continue to grow. Remove the mushrooms from the cake by taking hold of the base of the mushroom between thumb and index finger. Rotating your hand clockwise slowly, until the mushroom lets go. Do not pull out the mushrooms. This would risk damaging the mycelium and killing it. When most of the larger mushrooms have been picked, also pick the smaller ones and the pins as well.
Mushrooms that grow from the sides
Mushrooms grow where the light reaches and where there is little penetrating resistance. Because the cake has light shining on the sides, the mushrooms might also grow there. It is hard to counter this and can be allowed. Some growers wrap the sides of the grow box in aluminum foil to keep the sides dark, but this doesn’t always work well.
When mushrooms grow there, they can be picked just before you soak the kit:
Clean hands! Take the grow box out of the bag and place it upside down on your other hand. Wiggle the plastic box so that the cake will fall out, onto your hand. The plastic box can be placed on a disinfectant surface. Now you have this hand free to pick the mushrooms from the sides of the cake. When all mushrooms are picked, you can place the cake back as it was, in the plastic box and continue to the soaking process.
After all the mushrooms have been picked, you prepare the kit for the next flush. Again, with disinfected hands or gloves; take the grow box out of the grow bag. Fill the box with fresh, potable water. Take the lid out of the ziploc bag and use it to close the grow box. Place the closed grow box in a soaking Bag or use your own clean plastic shopping bag and wrap it around the box. Close it well and place this in a refrigerator (2°C to 8°C) for 12 hours. This is called the soaking process. Water will now soak through the cake, preparing it for the next flush.
During the soaking you can hang the grow bag with micronfilter upside down to dry. Make sure to hang it upside down, so no microorganisms will access the bag. Many growers prefer to use new and unused grow bags after every flush.
After 12 hours take the soaking Bag with the grow box, out from the fridge and unpack it.
To continue, follow the same steps 3 – 7 as before when you started the process for the first time. Several days later, a new flush will appear. You can get at least 2 or 3 flushes out of a Psilocybe cubensis 'Ecuador' Magic mushroom grow kit. If you are experienced in cultivating, you can get more flushes out of a kit.
When no more mushrooms grow out of a grow kit after the second flush for at least three weeks, or when the Psilocybe cubensis 'Ecuador' Magic Mushroom grow kit turns green, red, grey or yellow; the grow kit can be disposed of. The change in color is a sign that the grow kit is contaminated with another fungus or bacteria. No more mushrooms will grow out of the Psilocybe cubensis 'Ecuador' Magic mushroom grow kit and the grow kit should be thrown away in the garbage outside.
When you are too late picking the mushrooms, they will drop their spores. The cake and the mushrooms will turn black/purple (some other cubensis strains red/brown) because of the spores. This is not really a problem; it just doesn’t look very pretty. When mushrooms release their spores, they also start to degrade, and the active ingredients are breaking down. Mushrooms will lose some of their potency.

- A bit disapointed
My mycelium has not become contaminated and still looks healthy, however the fruiting ability of the box seems very lackluster compared to my expectations. On my first flush I only received 22g (fresh) with the largest one mushroom weighing 12g and on the second flush, less than 10g (again, fresh). I am now preparing for a third flush but I do not have very high hopes. I have used a digital hydrometer to keep humidity high, and have been spraying/fanning when nescessary, also I used a mushroom heat mat to keep the mycelium nice and warm 24 Celsius.
I can say that the shipping was very prompt and came within the time frame. So I have given two stars. (Posted on 11/16/2017)
- No show!
@Gazee: When a kit does not fruit after 2 weeks make sure to spray the vermiculite layer extra. No fruits after 3 weeks soak the kit again. Both must restart the kit and trigger pinning. Other options are increase/lower temperature or as last result a cold shock.

- good ...
- Eek, a Penis - big boys in the house!
First: Atm I didn't try them, but I am sure they will be fantastic!
To the Box:
This Ecuador mushrooms are enormously huge - like written; these are big boys!
The first I saw one of these guys (after 12 days) comin' out, I thought: "Wtf, a Penis in my box!" :-)
It was the first flush yet. Not a very big one (all together 14 'big' Mushrooms), but it's absolutely ok because of the huge size.
But now It's "soaking time" and I am sure there'll come more at the second flush.
P.s. All of the shrooms of this first flush grow on the rim, so they still have the whole middle of the box.
Thumbs up! (Posted on 2/24/2015)
The Ecuador are some of the finest mushrooms I've ever had. No Nausea, no body load, clear headspace, Just pure euphoria viuals and giggles. Walked round a forest with a friend in awe of nature and the beauty of everything. Thank you magic mushrooms shop! (Posted on 10/13/2014)

I would very much like my money back!
[EDIT MMS: Hello Lui, we have contacted you by mail with several methods that might solve the growth problem] (Posted on 2/10/2012)
Than I did try to make it grow but not a single shroom did grow..
Than when I did eat them... I haven't felt anything!.. not even a little side effect...
So now please explain to me why is it that I can't stop laughing!!!
I'm sorry but I really have to complain, I'm rating 5 out of 5 against my will! it's those MagicShrooms who have taken control to make everything fun and happy!
