Anyone bought a grow kit?
    #1436297 - 04/07/03 03:28 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Does anyone know if it's worth investing in a grow kit (like one on shrooms.com) or if I should just make my own?

make your own.. much more rewarding, and you get to learn the whole process.

or.

be lazy and buy a kit, hope it works and make a few prints to play with and continue the cycle.

good luck.

i agree with PooPs. Making your own "kit" isnt hard at all. I dont recommend grow kits. They are too expensive and the pf tek is easy to start with and costs basically nothing.

I recently bought a kit,before I found the Shroomery,unfortunately. Paid way too much,and still didnt have the stuff to do much more than just make PF cakes.
For 1/2 the money,you could buy everything you need to make a kickass growroom,a nice glove box,and a decent pressure cooker. Even if you just want to make come PF cakes,its still cheaper to do it yourself. IMHO .

I agree that the PF Tek does look interesting and fairly easy (with a bit of experience).
However, the problem for me is not the cost of the items, just getting a hold of them!!
For example, where (in the UK) do I get canning jars without paying ?1.59 per jar of bonne mamas filled with jam? Also, I can't find any brown rice flour in the supermarkets, no UK spore syringe sellers (gnosticgarden.com in future maybe).
Maybe a UK guide should be written detailing where to get everything.
Something I'll definately do if I ever use the Tek method...

Oh, and I currently have a grow kit.
I've had it in the correct growing environment for a week now and absolutely nothing has happened. Not even any mycelium coming through. I admit, when shit like this happens I do get more attracted to the Tek method...

Interesting stuff. I am gonna probably buy that Mushroom Cultivators Guide (the $30 one I think that everyone swears on) and try and read on this PF TEK method and try that over summer in the top of my closet.

Is it worth investing in a grow kit from the Shane..aka Spore Trading Post.
Let me think about that for a minute....

noooooooo

shrooms.com is just another site that belongs to the Keeper...aka STP.
He is a rip off artist and a liar.

You are much better off buying your own supplies and saving a ton of $$$$.

Whats so expensive about Bonne Maman jam ? If you were going to by a canning jar in the UK it would cost more and you wouldn't even get any jam with it ! Have you ever considered using tapered drinking glasses ? They sell those at Morrisons supermarkets for 99p for 4 glasses ! You won't find BRF at supermarkets either, try health food stores like Holland and Barrett etc or you could always try grinding your own rice. Cmon, put some effort into it !  :smile:

Cousin IT started with a kit ... The HomeStead Classic Kit . It worked out great , but was not very cost effecient . Gave a great insight and concept of what goes on in mush cultivation , especially if you make smartest investment of buying THE MUSHROOM CULTIVATORS BOOK .
It is up to you what will work best for your needs .
Good Luck

LOL, Ok sorry bio... I'll put more effort into things in the future. I have plenty of pint glasses. If I knew I could use those I wouldn't have posted that. Well apart from the BRF part. I'll order some from an online health food store.

Tripndicular - I'm getting the mushroom cultivator when I have the cash, thanks for the reference.

Shroomizzy, george - I stole myself 2 pint glasses earlier.

i would think that if you found this webpage then you already have half the battle won. Just read and ask the knowledgeable peeps here for help whenever you are stuck.. After that read on the PF TEK and shit u can blow up my PM box with questions!

My experiences with the Keeper and STP....I regularly like to try out products from the vendors around here...STP was one...I ordered DF Agar and a few othe items... it took a couple of monthe to recieve only half of the order, the agar, when it was recieved 17 out of the 24 plates were contaminated, I requested that he replace the plates and he said he would....and also check on my remaining products...another month goes by and he made good on the replacements but not verry good....there were 7 that also contaminated....it took posting a couple of pics here and in usente to get the disapointing results....

the remaining part of my order....well if I see it....I'll let you know...
