Old Fart Introduction * 1
    #25399702 - 08/20/18 01:27 AM (2 years, 8 months ago)

Hey Gang,

New member here. Just posting a little intro as suggested. 53 year old ukulele playing dude currently residing in the deserts of AZ with my wife and our menagerie of critters.

For the most part, mushrooms are a part of my distant past, partying in college etc.  Haven't really thought about them in years.  But I read an interesting article recently which discussed studies where psilocybin has been used to treat depression and other ailments.  I have been looking into more info on this and it has re-sparked my interest in mushrooms in general.

I recently began reading, The Psychedelic Explorer's Guide: Safe, Therapeutic, and Sacred Journeys, by James Fadiman Ph.D.

I also purchased, The Psilocybin Mushroom Bible, by Virginia Haze and Dr. K. Mandrake, PhD

The first book has been interesting, but so far it has mostly been talking about LSD.  The second book looks great, but is a bit overwhelming.

I was thinking that it might be interesting to try to grow mushrooms at home.  How hard could it be, right?  But from my brief flipping through the "Mushroom Bible", it appears that there is far more to cultivating mushrooms than I ever imagined. (I suppose if it was easy, they wouldn't need to write a bible about it)

But that's okay.  I haven't been completely scared off.  I've just had a bit of a reality check.  I now realize that there will likely be a long period of study preceding any attempts at cultivation.

So, that's why I have joined this forum.  I'm going to try to slowly absorb the basics and then eventually think about next steps.  I'll try not to ask too many stupid questions.  Thanks for being here!

Growing mushrooms isn’t hard at all! There were some really good guides on YouTube, not sure if they are still there. I found that the PF Tek is really easy and straight forward, it’s a good place to start IMO.

Anything on youtube you need to fact check here cause alot of those videos are old, have u do unnecessary shit or just ass backwards shit.

My biggest tip i can give is make a big sab.

Thanks for your advice, Nymph.  It does seem like there is a lot of bad and/or inaccurate info floating around so I will be very careful about developing reliable sources that I can trust.  "The Psilocybin Mushroom Bible" seems to come highly recommended.  So I guess I'm going to start there.  I'm not in any big hurry. Just starting my journey.

PF Tek is very simple. All you need is vermiculite from gardening store, some brown rice flour from a grocery or health food place, mason jars, a spore syringe, a large pot with a lid, and a stove. The only thing you'll probably need to source online is the spore syringe, but I think Arizona is a legal spore state afaik. Good luck!

and...

I knew a BoVine once. He was a good dude. Around 5 years younger than you and from Tennessee. So yo can’t be him. I’m new here as well. Sure we’ll cross paths here on the forum in the not to distant future. Prolly be a few weeks before I start my first attempt. Been playing around with agar a couple weeks. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Same age here. I got tired of getting strep throat every time I picked wild mushrooms. So I looked up the high times mushroom kits and it led me to here. I haven't left since. PF tek as mentioned above is a great way to start and you really don't have to do more. I got 4 oz's off 12 cakes in 2 months, what more does one person need? Welcome to the shroomery!

Welcome dude!

You should definitely reintroduce yourself to magic mushies again.  You’ll quickly ask yourself “and why the fuck did I stop taking this magical drug?”

Spore Works
Golden Teachers

Also are you aware that you can buy all necessary supplies legally?  Yes, even the spores.

Welcome, 
    Both of those are great reference guides. but methods have progressed a lot. Growing is easy. PF TEK is a good way to start, but if you live in AZ it may be hard to keep humidity up. I recommend one of the in-vitro TEKs (can be done with PF TEK too).

    This is the first place i send people.

Haha.  No I can't be him.  But I wouldn't mind being 5 years younger.  Heck, let's go for 10!  Good luck on your first grow.  Will be very curious to hear how it goes!
