First Grow Advice
    #11237727 - 10/13/09 05:48 AM (8 years, 2 months ago)

I'm looking to get started with my first grow and have decided that I'll use a grow kit this time so it's easier to get to grips with. I've also decided on GTs as I've tried them before and got great results from as little as 1g.

Could anyone recommend somewhere to buy a kit and the spores? Preferably somewhere UK based.
Thanks! :smile:

People around here don't take kindly to "kits."  You should probably watch these PF TEK videos as that is what the next 10 posters are going to tell you to do:

Bah, what's wrong with using a kit to learn the basics?
I'll move on to something like PF TEK after few flushes.

I agree that there's nothing wrong with using some pre-prepared materials when you start the hobby,  but "kits" are usually horribly overpriced and have a high rate of failure.
If you really want a beginner-friendly, "no brainer" way to grow then look into "grow bags" such as these:

They are reasonably priced and practically fail-proof, but aren't the best way to learn the hobby.

Dude honestly, Grow kit suck.

Follow the pf-tek to the T and you will have no prob.

you only need:

Jar
BRF
Vermiculite
tub for fruiting chamber

and spore.

This is all some easy to get thing.

I agree. PF tek is definitely better. But I also add to the list perlite and thermometer/hygrometer. And maybe an incubator(but not necessary).

You will be surprised how little you spend and how long your supplies last if you go out and buy them yourself, versus a kit.

Lol reminds me of that sexual harassment panda south park episode. We dont take kindly to your kind around here.

I have used a kit before and it worked then tried making my own and messed it up. If you want to have best chance get a kit but you will never be a real grower until you make your own. Its like buying a fruiting tree and saying you grew those fruits!!

Do it as you should get mushies for your investment and risk are a lot smaller.
