Which is best for a first timer?
    #2845414 - 07/01/04 12:19 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I'm new to this and I been reading and researching for about a month now. I'm ready to make the move and get everyhting I need. Well here's where I'm stuck. I see the PF-Tek stuff which looks easy. Then there's the simple minds version. Then there's jars and big show boxes. I also like those bags. So I guess I just can't figure out where to start. I was thinking a bag then move to jars. Is this the best step?

What do I need besides the pre mixed bag and spores? I have a bunch of rubber maid bins and keeping them hidden an stuff is not an issue. I use to breed fish so I have hundreds of tanks as my disposal. I also have heaters and air pumps which I've seen used. Am I jumping ahead to what a beginner don't need? I guess I've read so much that both the easy methods and mass production methods have me confused.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

May your next trip be your best

--------------------
Substrate + jars = $20
Magic Mushroom spores = $12
Growing your own Magic Mushrooms = Priceless

Domey thank you for the more helpful advice.

So the bag method is just a way for a first timer to feel some easy success. Just not a big reward.

The jars do seem better cause you can experiment more and make more use of the spores. I was going to have like 7cc left if I did the bag method. Well that's until I decided to grow more :smile: .

Thanks again for your help

I used PF Tek with 12 jars my first time. In the end I was left with 2 cakes that produced a few grams each. Now, on my second grow, I started with 10 WBS jars and now I'm left with a 6 jar casing and 4 jars to do g2g with. The casing has at least 50 pins on it right now.

Overall, it was much easier doing WBS than PF and far more rewarding.
