Do not immerse the grow kit in water or do anything with it, kits are already prepared.
Important: When handling the grow kit always wash your hands, nails and arms or use sterile gloves. Do not ever breath right on top of the substrate, the bag or the greenhouse. Mold is everywhere and you don’t want to lose your harvest because of an evil intruder. Green mold will ruin the whole kit.
Important: Do not spray water directly on the mycelium or the mushrooms.
These grow kits are exceptionally fast and first pinheads pop out between the next 5 and 16 days after the beginning of the process. Too low or too high temperature will delay the whole process and it could take four weeks to develop. Since we see the first hats, it will be about a week until the harvest.
Again, work as sterile as posible. Always wash your hands, nails and arms before the harvest. Be careful, use soap, antiseptic gel and sterile gloves to prevent contamination.
The best time to harvest the mushrooms is one second after the first veils slightly break. Pick them by their lower part (closer to the substrate) and, while twisting, pull the fruit upwards gently until you remove it. Do not pull without twisting, you will damage the mycelium and you will delay the next harvest. Treat these heavenly ambassadors with respect.
It is important to collect the mushrooms before their veils break completely and spread their spores. Each mushroom produces vast quantities of spores and spores produce gas that can hinder new substrate’s fructifications.
After the harvest, the mushrooms stems are likely to have a bluish hue, the first symptom of psilocin oxidation, evidence of the great power hidden in the Flesh of the Gods.
But wait! These grow kits produce several mushrooms harvest. After the first harvest the substrate isn’t depleted yet, it just needs a cold shock. To do so, fill the grow kit with cold mineral water. It breaths new life into the mycelium. Place the substrate inside the kit and close it with the lid that you kept. Let it rest in water for 12 hours and open a corner of the lid to drain the excess of water. Let it drip for ten seconds and you can start again. Place the box in the bag, spray water daily, ventilate…and until the next harvest; and again and again until the substrate is depleted.
