Question from a beginning cultivator ->
    #1785380 - 08/06/03 04:43 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I know about mushrooms, but am completely ignorant about the cultivation aspect of it all. I have ingested mushrooms a few times (and indefinately enjoyed the experience), but have no knowledge of growing them.

I have read a few different FAQ's about growing mushrooms but still have a few questions.

Pressure Cooker vs. Pressure Canner
What exactly is the difference between the two, and do I need both for the cultivation process or only one of the two?

Sprore Syringes
I am unfamiliar with the measuring units (cc's ?), so how many cakes would a syringe inocculate, approx.?

Typically from one cake, what is the amount of shrooms in grams that will grow? I know it's obviously not an exact science, but is a good estimate too much to ask for?

And one last question. After the shrooms are grown and dried, how much does one typically have that can be ingested? I.e. an ounce of shrooms, 18 grams, etc.?

Thank you in advance for responses.

1 cc usually equals one cake, not nessecarily, but that's the average. Pressure cookers are recommended, not sure what pressure canners are but I think they are about the same, you only need one or the other. The amount of shrooms in grams that will grow from one cake is however many you want...there are to many variables to say exactly...it could be 10 grams dry or .5 grams dry...I don't know what you mean in the last question about ingesting but I'm assuming you mean for a trip. 2.5g is the usual beginner amount.

get a pressure cooker, a 12 cc syringe for a friend can do 10 cakes, it is not possible yto know the yeild u will get but casings gove more yield than cakes so try doing both, and wet weight (fresh shrooms) will go down by 10 (ex. 40 grams wet will probably dry out to around 4 dry because mushies are mostly water)

Pressure canners are just pressure cookers that are big enough to be used to can things like vegetables, etc. in.

P.S. I didn't think Dracula liked shrooms or anything other than blood for that matter.

pressure cooker/canner: basically the same thing, you don't need an elaborate one either, anything you can find in walmart will suffice.

Yeah, 10 cakes per syringe. you can stretch it though to 12 or so, but colonization may take longer.

A lot of people say something like 7 grams per 1/2 pint cake. not exactly sure, since i've never really measured per cake.

2 grams is a good starting dose, but again, this depends on the type of shrooms, the person, the setting, etc. the potency of fruits varies considerably (even from within the same grow.)


Symphony of the night??? they don't make games like that anymore.
