Some quick NOOB questions!
    #1683020 - 07/03/03 09:18 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I am kinda worried about yield quantity and how long this stuff wil keep. I plan on some light growing, mainly for my wife and I.

How long will a spore syrine keep? Should I just grow the whole syringe, and keep the mushrooms dried? How long will dried shrooms keep?

Can anyone reccomend a specific strain for a REAL noob of moderate intelligence, and a somewhat lacking work ethic? My friend has a real hardon for the Psilocybe Cyanescens strain, which seems to be more for advanced growers. While I am leaning more twords heeding the advice found in these pages and starting with Psilocybin Cubensis-Ecuadorian.

Lastly, how much are pressure cookers?  :smile: Ive never owned one before.

PS oh one more dumb question, but does FoaF and its different variations = "A friend of a friend"? If so, then all of my questions Im asking for AFOAF who does not have the internet.

a year; yes and yes; years; try cambodian or ecuador - cubensis only, first time around is advised; about ?30 in the UK, probably $30-100 i'd have thought.

good luck

to repeat shirley..

a syringe will keep a LONG time IE : about a year if kept in the dark/cool

When properly dried ( as dry as possible ) mushrooms will keep for years...

Pressure cookers are highly recommended, but not needed, easy to use.

any cubensis strain is fine!

Thank you much guys, I think I will try and convince him to skip the Pan Cyan till we are better versed in shroomery.

Is there a wide variation in potency regarding the different strains of cube? I read that the Ecuadorian strain is the most potent, but is it close to the Pan Cyan?

Where do you guys buy your spores? I was looking at buzzgrower.com as they are pretty cheap.

go presterillized substrate or use the microwave to sterillize BRF & Vermiculite. Start out reading here, browse the faq and cult. forum here.

Some answers to a few of your questions...
Use the entire syringe.
Syringe will keep about a year if kept properly.
The best strain for a newbie looking for a problem free grow would be Thai Koh Samui cubensis, they colonize quick, resist contams and fruit automatically :smile:

I"ve used part of a syringe and stored it away. never had problems.

Be sure to make a print from the first mushroom you can. then you can recover from any disaster....

have fun!

I reccomend using Creeper (a cube strain) for a first time grow -- it's an aggressive colonizer.

PCs range in price, but you can get one for about $20 US if you get it used. Just make sure the pieces and manual are there, and that it's not scratched or dented or anything. Oh, and that it's relatively new.
