For the first grow you should have either a styrafoam cooler or an aquarium.I don't know about paying 50 bucks for a kit when you could make one for half that.Checkout the PF Tek.Go to the home page of the shroomery and click on Cultivation,then PF Tek.

So they don't ship the Jar to the US........huh........wonder why?(sarcasm)

Anyhow the easiest way I would think would be a mycobag + syringe...

You will still need to do some reading and a little work, but it's the easiest way I can think of.

peace

Idaho also now at least from TLG which IME is the best vendor out there!! I agree 100% mycobags and syringes are the quickest , easiest way out there if ya live in the US. :wink:
Grain based is what ya want, unless ya have mycelium syringes then straw would work great too! get a couple of large bags and do 5ml/cc each, you could even do 4 bags but it would take quite a bit longer to colonize. In this hobby patience is a virtue!!! GL and Welcome friend!

Small, grain based bags are a good place to start. Be sure to search this forum for mycobag growing tips.

just start with pf jars. if you fail you wont be wasting alot of money, and you can try again and again til you get it right. if you succeed you will get a hell of alot more mushrooms than you would with growkits or bags.

One small bag won't yield you much at all. 5ml. per large bag will yield you much more you'll just have to wait a bit longer :wink:

2.5 ml per bag is most common. Be sure to inject between the substrate and the bag, not the middle of the bag... and mash em before you inoculate, mash until the inside of the bag feels like potting soil.

i am gonna break down jar growing for you, its fuckin easy. buy a bag of verm, and a bag of brown rice flour and jars. order a syringe from one of the fine sponsers of this site. use the calculator on the pf tek to determine the amount of ingriedents you need for the amount of jars you want to grow. mix it together, fill jars, put tin foil over the tops of the jars. if you cant access or buy a pressure cooker boil them in a large pot with a lid for an hour and a half. let them cool 3-5 hours then removes tin foil and inocc throught the four holes you made in the lids of jars. make sure you heat the needle til it glows then alcohol swab it. evenly distribute a 1 cc fo spore solution into each jar. place the tin foil back on the jars. place them in a dark area til fully colinized. put them in a rubber miad tub with perlite in the bottom and a clear top. for a more detailed description refer to the cubensis tek for simple minds. trust me you will be more satisfyed in the long run then if you grow in growbags that cost 20 bucks a piece.
