Need Advice, unique situation.
    #22130065 - 08/23/15 11:12 AM (5 years, 6 months ago)

Hello there guys, Pretty new to the forum and mycology research. Anyway here is my question. I want to grow some shrooms but I work in a job where I move every 4-6 weeks. That means I need a portable tech which can stand a car environment for 1-3 days. Is this possible? If a get a incubator and start my spores in a liquid culture could this work? Here's what I'm thinking of getting.
Ultimate Mushroom Growing & Incubator kit,  on this page http://midwestgrowkits.com/grow-kits.html
. Need some advice guys what spores would work well for a quick grow and is this plan feasible?

I'm not sure, it seems from my research that 4 weeks total is a bit optimistic from spores to fully grown shrooms. Like I said this is a unique situation but for financial reasons this job is too good to lose. Do you have any suggestions? And no I was planing to drive with the shrooms in a dark box or the like not with the whole grow system still set up.

you dont wanna buy a kit man, no matter how much they brag about their beautiful grow bags and stuff.

look into sclerotia formers, just inoculate a jar and let sit for 6 months.

I'd say research sclerotia. they take longer to mature (6 months or so) but grow inside of a glass jar so you don't have to worry about transporting the fruiting cambers about

every 3-4 months I go outside of the usa for a few weeks, so I'm not too sure about this 6 month grow? is there no way to get full shrooms in 4-6 weeks even with optimal equipment?

The usual consensus is that grow kits suck, so don't bother with one of those.

I think since you're new that sticking with old skool BRF cakes could be best, just need to time it right and you can travel with cakes that are mostly colonized, or better yet, fully colonized, and they're pretty indestructible at that point. You can carry them in a cooler if you are travelling in warm climes and they'll be ready to pop out into your prepared SGFC.

This is all assuming that you will be able to grow them at your destination and give them what they need there.

Inoculate some grain spawn 2 weeks before you move. Then when you get to your new location you can spawn to a mono right away. 4 weeks should be plenty of time for a tub to colonise and push out at least one flush.

This was basically my plan. Since I'm new forgive me but are you talking about one of those spawn bags or a glass sterilized container with growth media?

What are you trying to accomplish with all this yield wise? if you want enough to just trip a few times look into invitro pp5's they are plastic so they should travel well easy,discreet ifyour looking for a few ounces then listen to muda and look into grains and spawn a monotub heres a few links franks 12 steps to shrooms http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/19792837/fpart/1
and heres a link to the invitro pp5's http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/21390984 keep in mind you will need a pressure cooker to do grains if that's the route you choose

A guy was recently taking sclerotia after only maybe a month. I think his jar was contaminated so he harvested early. He took more than usual presuming they would be weak, but he got a proper dose.

So you do not have to wait 6month, some harvest after 3 or 4. At 6 they should be definitely grown out. Harvesting after 4-6weeks is certainly not optimal as you would have got a lot more if you waited, but if you are really stuck its OK, grains are cheap.

If you are going out of town you do not need to worry about scerlotia jars. There is pretty much zero maintenance on them.

I harvested my first stone grow after about 3 months. They were plenty potent and much nicer to trip on than cubes.

I think OP is confused, OP talks of cubensis (I think) while we recommend sclerotia.

if you give the mushrooms a time limit they dont wanna play along IME, if you just let them do their thing in peace and quiet they'll be very happy.

Yeah talking about cubensis only guys. Just ordered spores from one of the board sponsors. Escondido strain because used to live there long time ago and I thought why not for the irony.

Thank you man in vitro pp5 looks outstanding, I can hide the plastic in between some blankets in my car and I should be gtg. Now to get some substrate and cleanse my jars while my spores come in. I will go ahead and boil them but does anyone know why 90 percent isopropyl alcohol isn't used instead? Also is it easy to get this brown rice flour or will I have to buy it online in your opinion?
