Beginner needs help on strains...
    #2089877 - 11/10/03 05:52 PM (14 years, 18 days ago)

I have a few questions for experianced growers on the strains below. First what kind are they, like Cubensis etc. Second how are the yields? Third what are potencies? Fourth how's the colonization time? Fifth which one would be your favourite and why? The strains I'm looking at are:
Pink Buffalo
Plantasia
Lipa Yai
Koh Samoi
Golden Teacher
Blue Meanies
Z Strain
Matias Romero
Orissa
Malabar
Stropharia
Treasure Coast
Ban Hua Thanon
Brazillian
Puerto Rican

PS
I was just looking on growing 7-10 of them...

Are you looking at www.ralphstersspores.com?

Be sure to mention the shroomery and you'll get a free syringe.

The Blue Meanie strain is confusing, you probably mean the cubes but copes are known as blue meanies as well... I discovered. Make sure before you order.

If you plan on growing 7-10 strains, you can't go wrong. Get as many different types as you can, and discover your favorites on your own. What is the sense in growing 7-10 strains if you just get the ones you hear are potent and quick to colonize?

Funny, you didn't mention the most famous strains, EQ, B+ and PF Classic.

Agreed. Ecuador was my first and continues to be my fave. Very resilient to abuse - perfect for new growers. I've had a lot of failures, but rarely with Eq's.
I also had great luck with B+ early on, but they have consistently failed for me over the last year. Last syringe I bought (when B+ prints were scarce for a bit) didn't produce the first spot of growth, even though I split it over 3 different batches (and types!) of grain. Also failed with one of my own prints, and one from a trade. Guess I'm B+ jinxed, but Eq's still love me!
Good luck.

I don't really know anyone who grows mushrooms. I just come here for fun.

Yeah, he started a strain of the month offer in September, I think.

Just make sure to ask for it.

Free strain of the month with ANY purchase.
