NEWBIE GROWER FROM UK! PLEASE HELP!
    #1362444 - 03/10/03 09:38 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Hi everyone,
I have noticed alot of shroomery.org's information can be easily related to by Americans and slightly experienced growers. I am an absolute BEGINNER at growing mushrooms and need easy to understand, uncomplicated, step by step information on growing my own mushrooms. Basically: The Absolute Retards guide to growing 'Shrooms!

EQUIPMENT I HAVE:
6x6x6 glass, vented fish tank, glass sliding door

WHAT I WANT TO GROW:
A 'magic mushroom' grow kit

Can someone PLEASE tell me everything else I'll need to grow the kit and how to go about doing so? I'm not being lazy it's just that I can't find a Newbie shroom growers guide I can understand!
I will be placing the tank in my bedroom, which doesn't see much sunlight/artificial light at all because I'm never at home.
What I basically want is a tank setup I can switch on and leave without too much maintenance for a week or three 'till I get a good crop!

Thanks very much in advance for any help!
Signed: Desperate Mushroom Growing Information Seeker

I hope the desperacy of my post doesn't make me look immature, it's just that I've been putting off trying mushrooms for a lonnnng time now and my need to 'trip' with them is now at a peak. I will be approaching mushrooms with the respect I approached salvia and rather than using mushrooms as a 'high', I am actually interested in spiritual, phillosophical experiences and strange, inspirational hallucinations... Maybe one day leading to me producing something like Alice In Wonderland.

first you need to get spores, jars, and some material for substrate, then you gotta make the substrate, put it into jars, and sterilize, then you get the spores into the jars via syrine or something...then you let incubate for a while in dark and let mycelium grow, when its fully grown in the jar, you take the colonized substrate out of jar and place inside your aqaurium and give the right fruiting condittions

thats basically it but you gotta learn all the specifics such as how to make substrate, sterilize etc

go visit the faq

It's legal to grow mushrooms in th UK, so you could buy a mushroom grow kit on the internet. Do a search, you could import one from Holland.

Most methods of growing will include some effort on your part, you can't just leave them for three weeks and expect mushrooms to appear.

My friend who also lives in the UK grows mushrooms using the PF tek. All you'll need are:


- A spore print (you should be able to get one from the internet)

- Some jam jars, my friend uses "Continental" from Asda, or "Bon Maman" from Sainsbury's.

- Steamer or pressure cooker. My friend uses a teafal steamer which works great.

- Some syringes (get them from gnosticgarden.com)

- Vermuculite (from B&Q)

- Brown rice flour (health food shop)

- Water mister (from any garden centre)

Using the PF tek will mean that you will have to do some maintenace (spray and fan at least once a day)

And lastly READ up on it, there's tons of information on growing mushrooms out there and this site should contain all the info you'll need.
