A few quick questions
    #1670580 - 06/29/03 02:01 AM (14 years, 25 days ago)

Hi all.
Im contemplating growing some mushrooms, but I have a few questions first. It would be greatly appreciated if I got some answers :smile:

1. What is the best strain to grow for your first time? Note, Im going to be using these for physchidelic purposes.

2. Whats the best place to order from? I would assume The Spore Shop, but its all sold out of Psyclobye Cubenis.

3. How long can I keep the cakes inside of their jars, without them going bad or rotten? As I plan on fruiting one jar at a time, and getting rid of what I fruit before I attempt to fruit another cake.

4. How long do dried mushrooms keep? Also, why are dried mushrooms more potent than fresh picked?

Well, thats it for now. Any other tips would be greatly appreciated!

well as for most of those Q's i cant say for sure (rather new myself)  but i fell in love with pink Buffalo .... i cant say why for sure ...... we just bonded :smile:  so on that note i would say they all are simmilar so go with what "you" want "they" will tell you wich is right for you :smile:  you know you have one strain in mind so ... go with that one it spoke to you :smile:

Hi - let's see..
1) Many people recommend different strains.  I think you could probably just pick on of the P. Cubensis from a vender and you'll be alright :smile:

2) http://www.shroomery.org/vendors.php - note - for microscopy use only.  I assume that's what you'll be using the spores for, right?

3) I have never done this, but I don't know if it would be a good idea to innoculate all the jars at the same time, then only fruit one at a time, until it's spent, then start fruiting with a second cake.  Is that what you're saying?  If you were trying to just have a small operation going on, I would try innoculating two jars every few weeks or however long it takes for a cake to become spent - that way when the cake's done you'll have two more ready for fruiting.  (I say do two, just to be safe in case one craps out or gets contaminated.)  Anyway, if what I typed doesn't make sense, just wait for someone who's more experienced to tell you what to do :smile:

4a) Dried mushrooms keep well - as for how long, I've heard "indefinately" and I've heard "a few months."  But both say to keep them in an airtight container (not a baggie).
4b) Dried mushrooms are more potent when you consider the potency by volume because they have a smaller volume than a fresh mushroom.

Hope I helped :laugh:

1. you'll get a dozen different answers. from me: cambodians.
2. shroomery vendors, or try www.fsre.org
3. you can keep them in the fridge until ready to fruit.
4. years. if anything, dried are less potent, unless you're talking by weight, obviously.

5. good luck  :heartpump:
