I have good success with mineral water in my substrate. I use bottled mineral water and pour it over a large screen filled with compost. I collect the water with a bucket and repeat a few times. The result is mineral water filled with organics that the fungus loves. Use this compost/mineral water tea in your substrate and sterilize your jars as you normally would. No extra sterilization steps are necessary. It works great!

If this is you first time you can use any water because you are going to sterilize it anyway but it cant hurt to use mineral water expecialy if you live somewhere where the water is shitty.

Try not to make things to complicated for yourself first time around use the easy methods there will be time to experement later.

It's better to have only a few shrooms now than have none at all because you didn't know what you are doing.

just take it easy it's all a hands on learning proccess and just remember
BE PAITENT!!! and learn as much as you can

I use these ionic trace mineral drops as a health supplement, also known as coloidal minerals, and I've wondered about putting some drops in the water I use for the substrate. I haven't done it yet but I'll bet that it would help the shrooms grow better. If anyone knows anything more about this please share the wisdom.
When I try it, I'll tell you about the results.
