How do I store the grow kit?

Do not store your grow kit longer than 2-3 weeks

We recommend starting your mushroom grow kit right away and begin the growing process. If you decide to grow later, do not store your grow kit longer than 2-3 weeks after the production date.

Store in a cool place

Always store the mushroom grow kit in the refrigerator (2°C to 4°C). The production date is printed on the cardboard box and includes the two digits of the week number.

Avoid contamination

Make sure your fridge is clean and free of bacteria, yeasts and other sources of contamination. To be safe, pack the culture kit in a clean plastic bag and seal it tightly.


  1. 1

    Wash your hands thoroughly and clean the outside of the growkit with a dry cloth. Remove the lid and save it for step 2

  2. 2

    Fill the growkit to the edge with lukewarm water (20°C), put the lid back on the growkit and let it soak for 5 minutes.

    Important: never soak the growkit for more than 1 hour!

  3. 3

    Remove the lid from the growkit and drain the water well. Let the growkit drain for 10 seconds.

  4. 4

    Place the growkit in the growbag and fill the growbag with a cup (200-250ml) of lukewarm water (20°C). Then fold the top of the bag and close it with 2 paperclips.

  5. 5

    Place the growkit in a place with 20-25°C average room temperature. Make sure that the growkit is not in direct sunlight, not under a lamp and not near a radiator/heat source.
    Important: the bag must remain closed until the first pinheads form. Until then the CO2 content and humidity inside the bag should be as high as possible.

  6. 6

    When the first pinheads* are visible, let some fresh air into the growbag on a daily basis (for a few minutes) and then moisten the growkit with a misting bottle.
    *Pinheads are the first visible forms of tiny mushroom caps. It can take 10 to 20 days for the first pinheads to be visible.

  7. 7

    The mushrooms can be harvested just before the membranes on the bottom of the cap open up. While harvesting gently grasp the stem and turn it left/right. When the mushroom becomes loose, pull it out as carefully as possible.
    Important: the mushroom must be completely removed so that there is room for a new one.

  8. 8

    Congratulations, the harvest is complete. It is now possible to grow a new flush of mushrooms by repeating steps 1 to 7 again.

Read the following do's and dont's for a successful grow.

Despite the fact that mushroom grow kits are easy to grow and reasonably idiot-proof, we have listed the most important points for you. Such as temperature, light, humidity, the first mushrooms and the growth cycle.


The ideal temperature for mushrooms to develop is 24°C. Do not have the temperature drop under 20°C and not exceed 29°C. To keep the temperature from dropping under the 20°C, you can use a Thermo Heatingmat to maintain the ideal temperature. A thermo mat is a must-have in the winter or colder regions of the world.


The magic mushroom 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.


The day the first pins show 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.

Frequent air exchange (FAE)

Keep the grow bag closed untill you see the frist pins, CO2 should be as high as possible to induce pinning. After the pinning stage you can open the bag 1-2 times a day to let in fresh air. Open and close the bag and push out the air and let is some new.

The 1st shrooms!

If the cultivation conditions are optimal, you can expect the first small mushrooms (the pins) to appear between 10 and 20 days. This also depends on the strain. Some cubensis strains grow slower than others. to reach maturety it can take up another week. A full grow cycle can take up to 4-5 weeks.


The mushrooms come up in groups. A growth like this is called a flush. 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.

Picking and Harvesting

Mushrooms should be picked when the veil between the hat and the stem is about to or has just torn. Don’t wait longer or the mushrooms drop their spores. Pick the mushrooms that are ripe and let the others continue to grow. The other option is to remove all the mushrooms and start a new flush.

How to pick your mushrooms:

  • Use surgical gloves or disinfect your hands, wrists and arms. 
  • 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. You have a few options:

  • Darken the sides of the kit by putting it in the cardboard box.
  • Spray the top soil a bit to stimulate more growth on the top
  • Do nothing and let them grow


After all the mushrooms are harvested, you prepare the kit for the next flush. Disinfected your hands or use gloves; take the grow box out of the grow bag.

  • Fill the container with lukewarm water (20°C)
  • Take the lid use it to close the container.
  • Let it soak for 5 - 20 minutes.
  • Remove the lid, and drain the water
  • Place the growkit in the growbag and fill the growbag with a cup (200-250ml) of lukewarm water (20°C)

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.  Many growers prefer to use new and unused grow bags after every flush.

Next Flush

To continue, follow the same steps 2 – 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  flushes out of a grow kit. The first flush often is the biggest.

The End

When no more mushrooms grow out of your grow kit after the second flush for at least 5-6 weeks, or when the 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 mushroom grow kit and the grow kit should be thrown away in the garbage outside or in your garden.


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.

Golden Teacher Strain information

Some believe that in the 1980's a specimen of the Golden Teacher mushroom was found growing in the wild in Florida, USA. The word spread around fast, mainly because of the recognizable golden caps with yellow speckles on it. Compared to other Psilocybe Cubensis mushroom types, the Golden Teacher magic mushrooms are quite large and very elegant in its appearance.

There is a story that the Golden Teacher was actually a Hawaiian PES, renamed by an Dutch grower, because:  "sometimes right before the veils break when the primordia are at their largest size before becoming mature, the entire shroom can have a golden yellowish color which vanishes when maturity starts to set in. " Source: from currently offline.

Origin: Unknown, possibly USA
Cap: 20-50 mm, Brow to Golden  (yellow) brown when the mushroom matures,
Stem: 40 -125 mm, medium ot large in size, bruises green blue when touched
Spores: Dark purple brown, 11.5–17 x 8–11 µm, subellipsoid, basidia 4-spored
Substrate: PF Tek and BRF, Rye grain, Straw and Dung

Great produckt and great customer service Review by First timer
Translate this from Finnish.
Tein jo heti alussa virheen ja maksoin tilauksen kahteen kertaan. Laitoin asiasta viestin asiakaspalveluun ja liikamaksu oli tilillä parissa päivässä. Tuote oli juuri, mitä mainostettiin. Nyt menossa viides kierros, mutta vielä ei näy sieniä. Voin suositella tätä firmaa hyvällä omalla tunnolla kaikille. Tuote tuli postissa muutamassa päivässä. Iso kiitos asiakaspalvelulle, Frankille.

Customer service support edit:

Amazing Product & Customer Care Review by Mystic
Huge thanks to Magic Mushrooms Shop and staff who produce great products and have excellent customer service for all questions. Golden Teacher is my second grow kit and it has far exceeded my expectations.

I have harvested and dried my third flush and the fourth flush is still producing (four mushrooms in progress right now). Flush 1 - 9g dried, Flush 2 - 6.9g dried, Flush 3 - 7.7g dried, Flush - in progress, perhaps 3g, estimate.

Power of Experience
Two weekends ago, my partner took 2.5g and I took 3.5g and we both had a major, significant journey together. It is very potent and leads to deep inner reflection, sensory enhancement, inner vision, optical enhancement and acuity (and for him auditory), also for me major time distortion - fascinating. Within only 10min of drinking and eating the mushrooms in a ginger tea, the effects began to immediately become apparent. Very powerful and instructive. It takes you where you need to go and beyond.

One caveat for producers - I was not aware, and I believe consumers should know is, that mushrooms have a definite shelf life and lose their potency with time perhaps being potent only for six weeks (please clarify Mushroom Shop in your experience). Last year when I harvested, I decided to ration them out over the year and then discovered that my carefully saved mushrooms produced no effect at all. This is one reason why I went for a heavier dose (3.5g) as I thought I was somehow more tolerant of the effect. Freshly harvested and dried mushrooms are very potent! My dilemma now is that I have 18+g of mushrooms and don't want them to go to waste but you also can't have that kind of journey every weekend because this is not a 'recreational drug' - this is, for me, a deeply, spiritual experience to be savored and reflected upon for some time.

In sum, fabulous product that will produce quality, powerful mushrooms. Make sure you have friends with whom you would like to share this incredible gift. Worth every penny spent. Thank you Magic Mushrooms Shop. (Posted on 4/30/2023)

Outstanding Product Review by Novice Grower
This is the second grow pack that I have ordered from Magic Mushrooms Shop. I have not yet tried the finished product of Golden Teacher but I have grown the mushrooms and harvested them. Following the instructions, the mushrooms are very easy to grow and I have gotten the first flush in less than a month. I am very impressed with Magic Mushrooms Shop and the customer service is 11 out of 10 - they always respond quickly with any grow inquiries and are very helpful. Don't hesitate to order with this company. (Posted on 4/1/2023)
