Strain suggestions for a new grower?
    #1877242 - 09/03/03 01:42 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Well im new to this and was wondering what type of strains of mushrooms would be the easiest for a first time grower and where i could purchase the spores for the strain at? i already read the PF tek article about 4 times but did not see any mention as to what strain to start out with.

Any suggestions would be great,

Thanks for the help.

Any strain you want.

I started with B+.

I READ THE TEK FROM EROWID, I ACTUALLY PRINTED IT OUT...IT IS LIKE 58 PAGES,"A NICE LITTLE REFRENCE WHEN NOT NEAR MY COMPUTER...." IT SAID "The spores should be Psilocybe Cubensis spores. Preferably, they should be of the Amazonian strain. The Amazonian strain has wider parameters for fruiting and is more tolerant of mistakes. However, any Psilocybe Cubensis strain will work."

Start with a Thai Strain like Lipa Yai and Koh Samui.  They fight off contams extremely well, they are aggressive colonizers, and they fruit abundantly and have a great high.

But I wouldn't know this is all what I have heard :rolleyes:

SWIM started with B+ and transkei, the transkei only because he got it free.

"A nation's hope of lasting peace cannot be firmly based upon any race in armaments but rather upon just relations and honest understanding with all other nations...

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed... The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. We pay for a single fighter with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people..."
