ok so to get started.....
    #1218604 - 01/14/03 06:16 PM (15 years, 4 months ago)

im finally moving into my own place... time to start my venture of growing both weed and shrooms.... ive done my reseach but would now like some comments from those with expertise.....
frst off.... is there anything i can substitute for vermiculate?
next....are there any strains that you wouldnt reccomend i try for a first grow... i know for a first time many people suggest goldens , gulf coast, or B+ but im gonna try for something with a higher potency... maybe not quite any easy grow... but still doable.... i really want to try thelittleguy's creeper strain... supossedly very potent no? if anyone has experience with creepers id like to know how the potency is.... is it as good as they say? was it a peticualrly hard grow? should i not try it for my first grow..... i will be growing golden teachers, and gulfcoast but would like to try for a third strain..... im thinking creeper.... is that a good idea? thanks in advance.....

i dont care to think of anything clever to put here, so ill just put this instead.

Not really. If you can't find it in hardware stores you can buy it online.

edit:corrected spelling and punctuation.

I think you'd want to stay with verm, especially for your first grow.  And you don't really have to worry about strain....as long as it's a cubensis, it should be fairly forgiving during growth.  I would recommend Ecuadorians for a first grow though.....  Good luck  :grin:

I found my vermiculite in a petshop. It's used as isolation material for incubating lizard eggs..
