Well done on getting your Copelandia Mushroom Grow Kits! Make sure you carefully follow each step in this guide to get the best yields possible.
Use soap and, ideally, hand disinfection gel to wash your hands before touching the grow kit or the mushrooms. A face mask and latex gloves will also be helpful.
It is strongly advised to work in the cleanest setting possible. This is crucial because, if sanitation is neglected, mushroom grow kits may become contaminated.
In addition to the Grow Kit, you will need:
- A misting bottle
- Clean tap water or mineral water
- A bright spot to place the kit in (not in direct sunlight)
- Latex gloves
- Face mask
- Hand disinfection gel
- Hygrometer / Thermometer
- Mushroom heat mat (only during the colder months)
How to Get Copelandia Mushroom Grow Kits Going:
1. Open the box and take out the contents. The box contains:
- 1 grow kit
- 1 grow bag
- 2 cups of topsoil
- 1 paperclip
2. Use soap and water to thoroughly wash your hands. In addition to hand cleaning gel (including alcohol), we advise wearing latex gloves.
If you have a face mask, put it on before equally distributing the topsoil throughout the kit. It’s preferable to do this with your hands and clean latex gloves on. Next, place the grow kit inside the grow bag that comes with it.
3. You can spritz the topsoil layer thoroughly and make sure it’s very moist (not soaked!) while the grow kit is positioned inside the grow bag.
Don’t forget to spray the interior of the bag. Verify that the bag has an adequate amount of fresh air inside, then secure it with the included paperclip.
4.) Don’t forget to spray the grow bag’s interior and the dirt layer. Squeeze the bag to provide it with fresh oxygen (this will eliminate the old oxygen).
Perform this procedure once or twice a day on a daily basis. Maintaining the moisture level of both the grow bag and the topsoil layer is crucial at this point.
5.) The mushrooms will start to pin after 6 to 11 days. At this point, remove the grow kit from the grow bag, give the bag an interior spray, and add new oxygen.
This can be attributed to the poor reaction of Copelandia mushrooms to direct water contact. You can return the kit to the grow bag once you’re finished.
6.) Five to seven days after they start to pin, the mushrooms will be ready for harvesting. 24 to 36 hours after the black spores start to fall out of the caps, harvest the mushrooms.
This may surprise farmers of Cubensis, but it is really preferable to allow Copelandia mushrooms to reach a more mature state. Gather the mushrooms by pushing them aside until the stem breaks at the base.
7.) Be careful to thoroughly spray the topsoil layer from a distance of 10 cm after harvesting in order to replenish it with moisture. If there is a centimeter or two of water accumulating at the grow kit’s bottom, it is totally acceptable.
Within a day or two, this can be poured out. This is when the second flush will start to grow. Remember to keep the bag damp, but never use a spray on the fresh mushrooms.

Potency Of Copelandia Magic Mushrooms Grow Kits
Cubensis magic mushrooms are roughly five times weaker than Copelandia magic mushrooms. This is something to consider while determining the appropriate dosage. Always take it slow and travel safely.
