What do you people do with your mushrooms??
    #1211859 - 01/12/03 01:47 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)


(Mods: I think this is the most appropriate section for this question. If not, please move it)

After looking through the archives, as well as "John Doe's" grow log, I get the impression that people who sell mushrooms for profit aren't held in very high regard here. Although I have nothing against drug dealers (especially ones dealing in rather "harmless" drugs like weed and mushrooms), I can understand that many of you might be somewhat agitated that people would use your innovation and hard work (ie: developing Teks) for monetary gain. However, one question remains...what do you people do with your mushrooms?? Based on some of the ambitious grow logs here, as well as many people starting another huge project shortly after finishing a previous one, I'd be very surprised if they were solely for personal use (unless your plan was to freeze dry a bunch for future use). Some say they give them away, which is very admirable. I personally don't have enough mushroom eating friends to get rid of 600 dried grams however.

I'm embarking on my first grow project as we speak. I started with 24 PF jars, 1/3rd B+ and 2/3rds Lipa Yai. Some didn't colonize properly, but I currently have a four cake casing and a five cake casing (some jars are still colonizing, albeit very slowly). I figure this should produce enough for me and several friends to be happy for a fair amount of time...but unless I freeze dry them I'll have some extras.

This grow project set me back about $135 Canadian (pressure cooker, 3 Sporelab syringes, two rubbermaid containers, perlite, vermiculite, mixing bowls, cups, 24 mason jars, one 25 watt blue light bulb and a portable "clamp light" to hang inside the terrarium). Do any of you veterans see anything inherently wrong with me selling enough to recoup my investment? I don't want to make any profit...I'd just like to break even. Since my growing success (or failure) is depedent on the techniques you developed, I thought I'd ask...as I'm a huge believer in Karma.

Thanks
Viking

I don't really give a fuck what you do with your shrooms and would hold you in just as high regard as anyone else here and if some log said 600 grams they probably meant fresh mushrooms not dried.

P.S. just tell a couple friends you have 600 grams of shrooms and see how long it takes to get a crowd outside your door, or do you have no friends  :tongue:

Not many of my friends do mushrooms. The ones who do trip maybe once every two months. I'd only give them to friends or people who I knew...of course if the word spread that some guy was giving away free shrooms I'd have tons of strangers at my door...many of whom would probably sell them for profit. I wouldn't want to start a charitable organization for drug dealers.

I haven't actually grown any mushrooms of my own yet but I'm guessing I'd have myself a monthly trip (and maybe eat or smoke a little in-between big trips) otherwise I'll give them away to people who want to come trip or sell them real cheap to people who ask, then I can use that money to improve my setup.

Where in Canada are you? I alternate between Guelph Ontario (during the school year) and Tofino (west coast Vancouver island) during the summer. I miss BC already...oh well just a few months til I head back.

I eat my mushrooms  :wink:  Seriously though....I grow only for myself and my friends.  I become attached to the mushrooms (especially after watching them go through an entire life cycle).  I like thinking that the growth cycle can be linked to that of the human life span (after all, we are all made of the same substances).  Watching a nutrient-rich substrate colonize, fruit, then decay is almost a drug in itself.  The knowledge that comes with it is priceless, and if utilized in a decent way, can help you learn more about yourself.

My first batch I sold to even out, and I have no regrets. I sure as hell would never grow specifically to sell, or ever sell in bulk, just to people I know but would rather not trip with.

Now that I've made back all the money I put into growing shrooms, I'm just growing for myself. If I get a lot, I'll trip with some of my friends, but I'm not going to make another dime off them.

Also, some of my friends grow mushrooms and we're all really in it together... or at least support each other. I have a few good friends whom I trust and will let trip off my mushrooms, but I'm not going to just let anyone eat them.

Seems to be a lot of shroomers in Canada, maybe we should all meet up sometime in Vancouver and go on a hunt  :grin:

Vancouver Island is absolutely crawling with wild cubies.  Hell, my father had several growing in his backyard and didn't know it (he still doesn't...I gave them a good home :smile:

There have never been wild Cubes growing on Vancouver Island. You may be confusing them with Cyanescens which do grow there but look nothing like Cubes. Cubes grow in warm weather.
