When replanting your Magecaps there will be a on-screen message telling you about the required space between each one, if the message shows “needs more room to grow” then you need to replant it a little further away. Each Magecap needs roughly 1.5m of room to grow successfully. Once they have grown ( 2 in-game days) for each Magecap that was planted you should acquire 3 Magecaps back.
