Tottal Newbie Question
    #2392482 - 03/01/04 10:12 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I've recentley become interested in groing mushrooms, so i went to my local head shop, because i heard they sell grow kits. It turns out they do I asked the guy what they came with and he said it has everything i need including the rubbermaid container and "straw" plus 3 spore syringes. He also said the only thing i would need to buy is a 40 watt desk lamp. Does this sound right? All the teks that i've read didnt mention anything about straw or desk lamps. The kit costs $179 so i dont really wanna waste my money if its just something this guy threw together and is calling it a mushroom growing kit. I'm really interested in mycology and have lots to learn. If this guys kit isnt legit than ill just but the equipment on my own. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

p.s They also sell spore syringes, but the guy has no idea what strain they are.

Yah, there are different ways to grow. Straw use is one of them The lamp is just for pinning and telling the mushy what direction to grow in.

You should be able to find everything you need for less than $179. I think my friend spent about $100 for all of his growing supplies, including spore syringes from sporebank.c*m (they didnt work well, he went with ralphster later on)

Do some reading and you will be able to put together your own grow kit for a fraction of that price. Surely there is someone nice enough here to hook you up with a print/syringe and can tell you what strain it is.

I spent, at most, $60 on my first jar. You just have to use things around your house rather than going out and buying all new Rubbermaids and stuff.

If I were you, I would spend 10 dollars to get some vermiculite and BRF and some perlite. Then get some jars (250ml) and start from scratch, much cheaper and less expensive. Just my opinion though.

or lava rocks, which my dog finds to be cheaper and plenty adequate.
to fill a 60 gal rubbermaid (2+ inches), its about 4-5 bucks from home depot.
definately the wise choice for penny pinchers and those not around good grow shops alike. sadly the dog is the previous.

but yes, do go with the pmp, semi-automation is a weight off your mind, as well as your schedule.
