"Hydroponic" mushrooms
    #675604 - 06/12/02 08:21 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

question thats been bothering me: I've noticed a lot of local dealers successfully selling shrooms that were supposedly hydroponically grown for sometimes twice the average price for "regular" shrooms around here. Of course I havent bought into it quite yet, but I have also heard that mushroom potency has a lot to do with the healthiness of the mycelium structures, as opposed to strain etc. (cubensis varieties), and growing hydroponically allows the mycelium to wick the water up through geo corals when in need. Keeping the shrooms happy. So would mushrooms grown hydroponically have a possibility of being more potent than others cultivated differently?

LOL, I think that's bullshit. Dealers are just trying to scam more money. Mushrooms usually need some moisture to grow in the first place, so basically every mushroom that they grew would be "hydroponic" in a rough sense of the word. There is no need to charge more money, because they're both the same product! I'm pretty sure there is no way you can "hydroponically" grow shrooms like you do with weed to increase potency.

I know this one dude who use to pay a shitload of money for hydroponic weed. He even told me once that he seen the plants growing underwater and that makes it 3 times better than regualar weed. He tried to get me to by some but I wasnt that stupid even though I was only 16. He later admitted that he never accuatly saw the plants. Im sure it was grown hydroponicly but not underwater like he said. The weed was pretty good to, but way over priced. He paid 175 bucks for a quarter..lol

I'm not even sure how they grow hydro. I just know the one time I smoked something like that I got a MAJOR body buzz.

bullshit just as i thought..thanks for the comments everyone....ah the question: "is hydro weed better than organic?" I sure love the dro but you can get some dank ass organically grown buds too. Organic bud tends to have a stronger aroma and even better taste sometimes. But I have seen hydroponic garden systems harvesting close to 1g per. watt! Just cuz its hydro doesnt mean you should pay way more $$$ for it though!.....

Never had organic before but they say that is the best tasting weed you can get. No artificial nutrients at all. They say you can even pull it off the plant and smoke it right there and taste how good it is, but it might be kind of hard to light b/c its so wet.

The reason to smoke organic pot is that the hydro and the regular growing use chemical fertilizers. The chemical fertilizers contain radioactive material that concentrates in the plant. As you smoke the radioactivity concentrates in your body in hot spots. These hot spots cause cancer. The chemical fertilizer in tobacco is the reason people get cancer from smoking cigarettes.
I grow my own med-pot for my arthritis strictly organic using a tea made from Fish Emulsion, Fossilized Fruit Bat Guano and Kelp Extract. The organic has no radioactivity.
My weed is the best I have ever smoked in more than 30 years of smoking. Genetics is key and I buy from www.emeryseeds.com. I bought Couchlock, Skydog, Blueberry X Hawaiian Sativa, KGB X Burmese and Kali Mist X Haze. These are all odorless and very potent. I have made an assortment of my own seeds crossing these varieties back and forth and have developed a very fast dwarf strain using a Couchlock Dwarf mutant. I only have a few of these growing at any time as there is only me smoking and I don't sell or give it away. This is my medicine.

I know this is an old thread, BUT I did want to say something here.

First off all I live in a small town here. It is hard to get shrooms cause a huge town meeting/conspiracy, had all cows eating food that made their poo useless, and mushrooms non psychedelic. It is extremely hard to get them. Now there was this one guy who went around selling people trash can bags full of shrooms that were COMPLETE BULLSHIT. Man he loved to rip off all the people. The shrooms were legit, and cheap as hell, turned blue and everything, but were from cow-pies he knew were not active. HE was a piece of shit. 7 People I knew were ripped off including me. Took 40 grams fresh to 5 grams dried and only reached threshold effects. Others felt nothing.

Not to mention we would drive hours to find a field of shrooms only to find they were not that good or even worth the effort.

Now this inspired a friend of mine on the other side of town to grow certified strong and well taken care of fresh shrooms. This ran her up to almost 100$ in supplies and the average labor, not to mention putting her ass on the line with her family and the government. After she grew them, she used to term "HYDROPONIC" not to trick people into thinking it was some great superior chemically altered shroom, but to let them know it was grown in her chambers, and not picked out of cow shit. I think after all her work, out of pocket money, and risks, she did deserve the profit she gained from the shrooms. She also in my eyes used the term hydroponic correctly. Hers were the best and strongest I had ever taken. Money well spent.

This person really isn't me, I was just a party friend who was around at the time. So anything you wanna say, say.

I think what she did made so many people so happy, they even gave her tips and extra money, because they had been ripped off by the other guy first and words were not enough to thank her for bringing back the spiritual food to this hypocrite town. She even gave samples. So point is, I like that term as a way to differentiate wild shrooms that could possibly be shit from shrooms that have received a lot of careful time, attention, care, and money. That might not be the direct definition but it is good in my town and I think she started a trend with it.

Perhaps the dealer is just trying to let you know they are of higher quality. In any case if it is outrageous like 80 dollars an 8th  Then yeah, that's a scam.

Good for your acquaintance for growing some decent shrooms in a psychedelic starved area.  Apparently saying "hydroponic" worked for her business. 

The only reason the term is used is because it's a name associated with good weed.  I'll bet WAY too many people don't even know what "hydroponic" means.  And it's pretty rare to find someone who really understands the life cycle of fungi. 

So put all the ignorance, and willful misleading together and you get "hydroponic shrooms doooood!" 

btw- in case people haven't figured it out yet, shrooms are not grown hydroponically.  www.shroomery.org/8772/What-are-hydroponic-mushrooms

Yeah...

Hydroponics is a way to cultivate plants.  It means that instead of soil, the plants get their nutrients via a liquid solution.  Most times, if weed is grown correctly, you wouldn't be able to tell which was which.  You can grow awesome weed in dirt and you can grow shit weed hydroponically. 

To my knowledge there is no way to grow mushrooms hydroponically.  Perhaps if you were able to grow a large mycelial mass in a liquid culture then fruit it without any sort of substrate one may consider that hydroponics but I still don't think that counts.  Mushrooms just eat differently.

Oh yeah I knew that of course. Yeah it worked for her but I would rather just say "Homegrown" because you never know who you are dealing with might have the same or high knowledge base than you. I would just be honest to the buyer and tell them, "Hey I grew these in the house, put a lot of money time and labor into it, and they should be pretty potent but it varies."

By the way nice link.

if you do not flush before harvest than hydro bud can make you sick, if done proper you will get higher thc, but lower yields than outdoor, still you can get 3 to 5 harvest as apposed to one out door, mushrooms are fast growing anyway. they do use hydro for some large scale shroom ops perhaps like peroxide, the extra oxygen to "roots" may cause better yields however i do find it hilarious that over 10,000 folks have checked this post, most in hopes that you can grow hydro shrooms, as stated above there is no hydroponic shrooms that is unless you want to classify agar as a hydro media, I use agar for micro propagation of my plants to create an infinite supply of green thus do not consider it a part of my hydro grow since it is one step ahead of going into flow tank,though sometimes we borrow certain tools from the hydro world to gain yield and potency oh yeah one more thing if grown proper you can always tell hydro from dirt. try growing a 8 foot bud tree in hydro, YOU cant, at least not with your average veg and fruit times, i like to see a new harvest every two to three months, unless you keep vegin the girls for nearly a year before you but them in hydrotron you can not even get close to that hieght.Here they have limits on the size anyway so i like to graft many buds to one plant.
