Woohoo! Spores for me! Now I can wait... for money..darn...
    #1515562 - 05/02/03 07:20 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I got some spores today!! Yippe hooray!

But... I have only like 18 bucks to spend on stuff now... had to pay the courts 50 bucks for a BS MIP I got (minor in posession... I was walking home drunk instead of driving.. go fig...)

Anyways, I was wondering, I still need Jars, 8$, lots of sterilizing stuff (simple green, a dust mask for anti-breath contam) and I still need a PC... anyone used the 20$ 4 quart model, had any problems with it? I want the 40$ 8-quart, but no money right now, >< I guess I could go to check into cash, ;-). And after I get all that I still need some grains or brown rice flour, and if I get grains a need a pc... yada yada yada... still need masking tape and tin foil... blah blah blah... man I wish I had 50 bucks... mabe I will make some phone calls and try and bum some cash, or borrow a PC (if anyone has one).

So give me some advice please, should I wait like 3 weeks, and get a good PC and everything set up perfect, or should I try and get the essentials and get something going?

Thanks Shroomery Board Posters!

All you need now about $15 for the first couple weeks. You don't NEED an incubator or a PC (unless you use grain or something)

ok cool... I've just heard that grains are sooo much better than BRF, so if I could get a PC, what grain substrate would be best.

I've read a few of the substrates in the faqs and cultivation section, but they sound a little complicated, (steeping the flax seed, etc) if anyone could recomend an easy to use grain substrate I will try it out, and save my money for a PC...

Unless BRF isn't THAT much worse than grains, its just what people have been saying in a few of the posts here at the forums.

Thanks

Sucks about the MIP dude. If it's any consolation to you the county I live in revokes your licence for and MIP, so I guess you could be thankful that didn't happen.  :frown:

Anyways...this dude I know got by without a PC when he was starting out. He'd probably tell you to just get the BRF, Verm amd jars for now. Those things and the spores are you really need for know if you're itching to start (as I'm sure you are). It shouldn't cost more that $20 to get that stuff. You can worry about the fruiting chamber later when the jars are done.

Birdseed - easy as fuck and very inexpensive - it worked very well - at least that's what some random kid told me as I was staggering down the street in an alcohol induced stupor.  Come to think of it, I'm surprised that I was even able to remember it. :grin:

For 20 bucks my roommates cat got most of the supplies needed to start.  The jars, brf (no pc either dam it!), verm and a tub for an incubator (unfortunetly the fish tank heater was 15 bucks by itself).  Heard of methods of just insulating the heat of the mycellium by wrapping the jars up. 

Sucks about the MIP, i understand i got one too.  Except mine cost $180 bucks. :blush:
I'd say you got off easy heh.
