considering growing for 1st time. is it as easy as it seems?
    #14481729 - 05/20/11 01:07 AM (9 years, 11 months ago)

I am considering buying a grow kit or spores on line and grow my own. Is it true all you have to do is inject the spores into the kit and you just place it in a dark place and you have massive yields of psyco actives in less then a month? Is it really that easy? Can some one provide tips? Thanks

No it is not that easy. But yes it is easy. Never tried a growkit it's easy enough without one and you can get everything but the spores locally.

Yes, it's that easy.

There's a few things to remember, however. Like, always pay with your credit card and always have it shipped directly to your house. Also, upon starting to cultivate, you have to make sure you call the police, and tell them you're cultivating psychedelic mushrooms so that they can give you a permission slip.

Also, you need to buy about 10-20 of these kits to get started. I'd say the more you get, the better.

Good luck!

The best way to find out is to research yourself.

Wow what a bunch of ass holes LMAO, you guys should have honorary TC tags for those answers.

Darkness is not necessary, light is beneficial to all stages of mushroom growth, bags don't fruit well unless you have them in a SGFC and then are still sub par.

I suggest you stop worrying about easy and worry about time consuming, the bags would need regular fanning and misting while fruiting.

I suggest that you read up on mono tubs, rye grain prep, GLC, and Damion5050's elementary coir tek or learn to build a mono and pour the bags in the mono when they fully colonize and maybe mix in some coir/verm at field capacity to make sure it has plenty of H2O. Research all the terms I used with the search engine and read and watch vid clips on http://mushroomvideos.com

check out them Roger Rabbit videos...hes like the mycology yoda.

but no its no where near as easy as your OP made it seem, but it aint hard either.

read. alot. and then read some more. and then when you think you've read enough, stop take three bong hits, and read 3x as much as you already have. go to sleep..wake up the next day, go to work or whatever, come home and read more. then repeat again the next day, and the next....

you see where i'm going? nobody is going to spoonfeed you PF tek instructions....this place is a great resource and within its archives, and the forums, you will find all the information you want to cultivate mushrooms, but you're going to have to read until you understand some basics. then come back and ask questions. the users here are knoweldgeable and helpful if they can tell a poster has put effort and research into their endeavors...

pyscho active cultivation is illegal in the USA...I'm just saying. :wink:


--------------------
I am looking for any shiitake strains, any oyster strains, and lions mane cultures. i got cool edibles to trade.



"Mycologists on the other hand grow for the love of growing.  They want to experiment with various species, substrates, and fruiting environments. They'll move on to isolate strains, attempt hybridization, and in general treat cultivation as an artform, rather than a chore that must be performed as a means to an end.  They'll work twice as hard for a ten percent gain, just for the love of perfection..."

I will never make another cake, bulk is easy if you read the right posts, go read every tek in the Ask a Q: and get an A: AMU thread in 13Shrooms journal and then buy you a pc and practice using it after you read the instructions. Everyone here pushes cakes on noobs and make them feel like they can't do bulk first, that is bull, bulk is much easier IMO.

yeah bulk is the way to go...just finished my first flush from my first cube grow...went straight to rye spawn and damion50/50 coir in mini monotubs. i read a bunch of the same stuff 3n1gm4 linked to. good info.

stopped recording wet weight at 1000 grams...checked dry weight this morning after 48 hrs fan dry and 10 hrs in desiccant chamber and it was right under 5 ounces (125grams) of PES amazonian from Sporeworks. will be posting harvest pics on my grow thread sometime soon.

after lots of reading and research i went with a three MSH tub setup instead of cakes and shotguns...just seemed easier and more logical after i thoroughly understood all the major concepts involed (substrate, moisture content, GE, FAE, and RH, inducing pinset, fruiting conditions, etc. ) and turned out really well. montubs are soopid easy! even my stoner ass pulled it off.

NICE!:awesomenod::thumbup:
Do you use gypsum to soak and boil your grain and add it to your sub? If you don't you should!

yeah man i added gypsum to the coir/verm substrate mix. next round i think im going to add in some coffee grounds to the sub and use gypsum on the rye soak.

It's definately not as easy as op makes it sound. Just expect to fail a time or 2 before you get it right. There's a steep learning curve to get started

I failed my first attempt at PF BRF cakes in SGFC, moved right to bulk and did fine, it was much easier than cakes. I was still trying to grow cakes until last week and the total count was 5 out of 34 actually had fruits, and every one but one cluster on a cake with bacterial infection did nothing but sit there and get paid more attention to than my kids, oh and one turned green. Then I built a mono and PCd some rye and got some coir, from then on I had dry ounces of some very potent mush.
