I'm new to this place so it'll take me a while to get up to speed with the more experienced users out there, so please bare with me...
I have never ingested / cultivated my own magic mushrooms (and I never intend to ), however, I have a 'friend' who is very interested in finding out about the type of equipment he should buy and needs someone with a bit of knowledge to recommded a good UK grow kit retailer if that's possible?
He has some equipment lined up for purchase but would like someone to verify if it would work or not for growing the 'shrooms:
TANK: Glass cube tank, Vented with sliding glass front. 6x6x6 ?12.23
HEAT: Pearlco conicals 60w ?17.99
LIGHT: Spot Bulb (yellow) ES Spot 100W ?2.45
Angled Plastic Spot bulb holder BC Holder ?3.99
Fluorescent Single Starter 18"x1" tube (15w) ?15.99
Does that sound like acceptable equipment to use for growing and can someone inform me of a good UK grow kit retailer and kit type?
Check out King Bong, they sell ready prepared mushroom kits, all you have to do is place them in the tank and hey presto, shrooms! However they are expensive. Your friend is better off however buying some spore syringes and following a good grow guide like those found on this site. You don't need any of those lights really a well lit room will do and the tank is a bit small. A tank with wet perlite at the bottom will do, in a warm room (25 c) or a plastic tub with a tight lid that lets in light. Just look at the conditions needed for casings in this sites FAQ.
