Grow Guide

Growing with the Freshmushrooms Grow Kits is extremely easy. These kits are completely maintenance-free thanks to a fully colonised substrate without fillers. You hardly have to do anything to get your first flush with high levels of psilocin. Follow the steps below and you will be assured a rich harvest!

Step 1

Take the Grow Kit, plastic bag and paperclip out of the box. Remove the lid of the Grow Kit (store the lid properly). Rinse the lid under running water. You will need it again later.

Step 2

Place the Grow Kit without lid in the plastic bag (opening at the top). Starting after one day, use a plant sprayer with clean water to spray the inside of the bag every two days. DO NOT spray directly on the kit itself!

Step 3

Close the bag with the paperclip after each spraying. The bag has built-in filters so you do not have to worry about air circulation.

Step 4

Place the Grow Kit in an area with enough daylight and at a temperature between 18 °C and 28 °C. NEVER place the grow kit in direct sunlight. Although mushrooms will grow at almost any temperature above 15 °C, 23 °C is the ideal temperature for an optimal harvest. Special heat mats are available to ensure this temperature and not have to heat the entire room.

Step 5

Stop giving water as soon as the first mushrooms become visible (Phase 1). From now on, keep the bag a bit open the entire time so the moisture can evaporate (Phase 2). Too much moisture is not good. The first mushrooms will be visible after approximately 1 week. Your first harvest will be about a week later. Make sure that you harvest before the first spores begin to fall!
 
Freshmushrooms grow kits produce their first harvest fairly quickly. The first buds are already visible after only 1 week. Low and high temperatures may slightly delay this growth process. As soon as the buds are visible, stop spraying the inside of the bag. It usually takes one to two weeks before the mushrooms are fully developed.

Step 6

These kits produce several mushroom harvests. To do so, fill the kit with clean tap water after the first harvest. This process is known as cold shock. It breathes new life into the mycelium and ensures that enough moisture is present for the mushrooms to grow.

Step 7

Place the lid of the Grow Kit back on the kit. Let the kit rest for 12 hours. Open a corner of the lid and drain the excess water. From here you can follow the instructions from step 1 again. This process can be repeated several times.
