Best place to purchase spawn
    #2166004 - 12/07/03 09:00 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Hi everyone,

Well... in the past I've always met with almost total failure when it came to growing my own mushrooms, and I've tried a few times. I was always living in chilly basement suites, though, and now I've got myself a decent apartment where I can more easily control my environment. So, I figured it is time to start growing again.

I have a decent sized stoage closet (5'x5') and would like to use straw/dung as substrate for a bulk method. I've always met most of my failure in the early stages, so I figured I would simply try to purchase some mycelium spawn. (I'm in Canada).

I've so far found only one Canadian site that sells spawn bags. http://www.mushbox.com/mushroom-growing-spawn.html is the place. I'm likely going to go with them, but thought maybe someone on the forum here had a better idea (aside from making my own spawn - I'll try that on my own, when I have a big flush of mushrooms to take spore prints from).

Also, how many of those 1 L bags of spawn should I use for one of the larger rubbermaid/sterlite containers (125L)?

Thanks in advance for your replies!

Err... if I'm not mistaken, they only sell growing medium?

man... fuck that shit. Seriously.. If you like in a new place then and you havn't ever grown them before, you don't want to start off with straw or poo... Most try the pf tek first, but if you refuse that and need more yield then go with grain casings. Thouroughly clean your apartment, prep everything in a presterilized bathroom, wear a dust mask and some latex gloves and go to work. It really isn't that difficult and you will learn some very very valuable information. And when your first mushrooms start popping up you will have a hard-on....

Alright... apparently no one reads the post before responding.

I've grown many times. I've met with failure more often than not (but have had some success) and am now in a position where the environment I could grow in is much better than the one I had before.

I know the basics... have several BRF crops under my belt... even cased a few times. THAT is why i'm moving up to straw. I simply do not wish to wait to get some spawn going, and would much rather start off with some purchased.

So if someone knows where I can get some cheaper than on the site I posted above, I'd appreciate the reply.

Cheers!

from this i should have derived that you have "grown many times" and that you "know the basics" because you have had "several BRF crops under [your] belt" and "even cased a few times."  With having 28 posts, and claiming almost total failure, I assumed that you were going to give up and go waist a bunch of money.  Sorry for trying to be of some assistance :smile:

Good luck

you said that you are in canada. live psilocybe mycelium is illegal in your country, so i am locking this thread. if you are looking for non psilocybe spawn, check www.fungi.com
