Magic Mushroom Grow Kit McKennaii XL by Mondo®

Years of research and development have culminated in the latest generation of Magic Mushroom Grow Kit McKennaii XL by Mondo®. The McKennaii XL grow kit has improved even further. In comparison to the first generation of Mondo®XL magic mushroom grow kit, the second version includes:

  • 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 Mondo® McKennaii XL magic mushroom grow kit differs somewhat from previous grow kits you may have used. These are mostly ‘under the hood’ differences that are difficult to notice.

You do not need to utilize any more spores, as with the previous and other simple mushoom grow kits. The spores formed in mycelium inside the substrate (the cake) in the grow box during the laboratory process.

How to store the grow kit correctly

It is advised to begin the cultivation process as soon as possible. If you want to start growing later, keep the grow kit in the refrigerator (2°C to 8°C) for 2 weeks following the manufacture date. Wrap the grow kit in a plastic shopping bag and seal it tightly.

Contents

  • 1x grow box – This contains substrate with active mycelium (the cake)
  • 1x large grow bag – The bag has micron filters to keep contaminants out
  • 2x paperclip – For closing the grow bag.

You need

  • 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 to use

  • Surgical gloves
  • Facemask
  • Disinfectant for hands
  • Disinfectant for surfaces
  • Soaking Bag
  • Thermometer
  • 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 Mondo® ‘McKennaii’ XL 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, micro organisms may attach to the grow box and will flourish inside the Mondo® McKennaii XL 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.

Instructions Mckennaii XL Magic Mushroom grow kit

  1. Fill the grow box with fresh, potable water. UNtill the susbtrae is submerged. Close the grow box well and let is soak for 12 hours.
  2. After 12 hours, pour the water out of the grow box.
  3. Place the grow box inside the large grow bag. The open end of the bag should point upwards.
  4. Remove the lid from the grow box. Rinse the lid, and store it in the ziplock bag for later use. Place the ziplockbag with the lid back in the carton box.
  5. Fold the open end of large grow bag twice; do not cover the micron filter.
  6. Place the paperclip on the fold, so the bag stays closed. Now the Mondo® ‘McKennaii’ XL Magic Mushroom grow kit is ready to grow.
  7. Place the Mondo®’McKennaii XL Magic Mushroom grow kit inside the carton box, on top of the ziplock with lid.

Temperature

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 a thermo mat to maintain the ideal temperature. A thermo mat  is a must-have in the winter or colder regions of the world.

Light

The Mondo® ‘McKennaii’ XL magic mushroom grow kit simply need light to ‘understand’ that it has reached the surface. Only then will mushrooms sprout. A few hours of fluorescent/artificial light or indirect sunshine per day is sufficient. Because direct sunlight destroys mycelium, keep the sun away from the grow kit.

Water / Misting

You begin misting the day after you begin the treatment. Remove the paperclip from the grow bag to open it. Spray once against each side of the bag rather than immediately on the cake. So you mist four times a day. Misting also allows fresh oxygen to enter the bag. Close the bag with the paperclip immediately after misting.

Mushrooms

If the conditions are favorable, the first little mushrooms (the pins) should appear between 5 and 16 days. This is also determined by the strain. Some cubensis strains mature at a slower rate than others.

Flushes

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.

Picking

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.

Soaking

After you’ve harvested all of the mushrooms, you’ll need to prepare the kit for the next flush. Remove the grow box from the large grow bag using disinfected hands or gloves. Fill the box halfway with clean, potable water. Remove the ziplock bag lid and use it to shut the grow box.

Place the unopened grow box in a soaking bag or wrap it in your own clean plastic shopping bag. Close it tightly and place it in the fridge (2°C to 8°C) for 12 hours. This is known as the soaking process. Water will now be absorbed by the cake, preparing it for the next flush.

You can hang the grow bag with micronfilter upside down to dry while it is soaking. Make careful to hang it upside down so that no microorganisms may get into the bag. After each flush, many growers like to utilize new and unused grow bags. After 12 hours, remove the soaking bag containing the grow box from the refrigerator and unpack it.

Next Flush

To proceed, repeat steps 3 through 7 as you did when you originally started the process. A new flush will occur a few days later. A Mondo® ‘McKennaii’ XL Magic mushroom grow kit will yield at least two or three flushes. If you have cultivating experience, you can get more flushes out of a kit.

The end

When no additional mushrooms grow out of a grow kit for at least three weeks following the second flush, or when the Mondo® ‘McKennaii’ XL Magic Mushroom grow kit becomes green, red, grey, or yellow, the grow kit can be discarded.

The color shift indicates that the grow kit has been infected with another fungus or bacteria. The Mondo® ‘McKennaii’ XL Magic mushroom grow kit will no longer produce mushrooms, and the grow kit should be discarded outside.

Spores

When you pluck the mushrooms too late, they will drop their spores. Because of the spores, the cake and mushrooms will turn black/purple (some other cubensis strains will turn red/brown). This isn’t a big deal; it just doesn’t look very nice. When mushrooms release their spores, they begin to deteriorate and the active chemicals disintegrate. Mushrooms’ potency will be reduced.
