growing or hunting....
    #1484813 - 04/23/03 01:51 AM (14 years, 4 days ago)

would u say growing is easier or hunting... not wether one is more satisfy but im wondering if its worth it to spend so much of ur time just trying to fruit mushies rather then find them in the wild.

and if they are easy to grow, would somone of no nowledge of how they grow be able to do it? and does it take a long time (in general not a specific species)

cuz to me it seems like u risk getting caught, contam, time, energy, money, while growing.... JUST CURIOUS.

Once you know how to find them hunting, I guess it would be easier, but there's the risk of consuming incorrectly identified shrooms, or getting caught picking by angry farmers/cops. And you have to wait for the right temperatures etc.
With growing, it's pretty simple too, once you've got the hang of it I would assume, and you know what you're growing (less chance of consuming the wrong shrooms), you can grow all year round, have fresh shrooms to consume, etc.
Both sides have pros and cons.

that's a good answer

Marijuana is a horticultural plant.  Hemp is an industrial weed.  I believe they were both provided to us by GOD to use and enjoy.

Growing may be more time consuming then just going to your local cow pasture and scouring the fields for shrooms, but when you grow, you know what you're growing, so you know you're not going to eat a deadly look-a-like.

You might find that growing your own mushrooms is very rewarding. Nothing like enjoying the fruits of your own labor.


Phase 1... collect underpants... phase 2...??? ... Phase 3 - PROFIT!

hunting sounds like an excellent activity. I've tried, but have yet to find any actives. The area I live in doesn't really produce magic mushrooms.. I need fields to find liberty caps but it's all forest around here. This means that I grow. It definetly isn't too much work. It's quite simple and pleasing to do.

It could take you a month to six weeks to produce your first mushies if you grow them yourself. This time could be cut down quite a bit with experience, but this is what you should expect growing them for the first time. I did my first grow less than a year ago. I did a lot of research and was very successful, with some nice big flushes and no contamination. Lots of newbies seem to want to start with grow kits, but I say just go with the PF tek. The website this was on is gone, but I imagine another website whould have archived the pf tek... if not then check out the magic mushroom grower's guide. Read through a few times and memorize the process so you become familiar with it and it won't seem like such a daunting task. It's quite simple. Start researching and soon you'll be an expert before you even grow. Go for it!
