Help the newbie!!!!
    #3185517 - 09/27/04 09:38 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Hey guys, I just stumbled upon this forum and I am very impressed with all the information available as well as the prescence of many kind individuals eager to help out newbies such as myself. I've read up a lot on mycology and I'm very interested in growing my own shrooms. I'd like to ask a couple of questions to help me get started.

What is a good overall species to start with? I've read that the b+ is very good in terms of production and ease of maintenance, but I don't know about it's potecy. Another thing, I live in the Philippines, so the climate conditions here are very different from the US, Canada or Europe. Can you recommend a good strain for growing in tropical climates?

Third, can you suggest any sites that can offer me reasonable prices and are willing to ship internationally? Being able to pay by credit caed would be great too. Thanks guys!

1. B+ is just a substrain of a larger species of mushroom called a cubensis. Any cubensis will do, they all have the same growth parameters. And potency can be very relative, it kinda depends on what you grow it on, BRF, Rye, WBS, Poo, Straw.

2. Cubensis are tropical mushrooms. That would be an ideal environment.

3. Go to the sponsor forum. Any shroomery sponsor will do you good.

Koh Samui, may be native in your neck of the woods.Not for sure.

B+ is a good starter.

Good Luck and welcome to the Shroomery

as most experienced ppl here have told me it doesnt really matter which strain ure growing as long as uve done ur reading and know wht to do.
im on my first grow, with the help of all the great individuals here, and im doing an orissa,india strain on a popcorn substrate and my jars are about ready to be birthed!
Cubensis grow in between 70-80 degrees F whic is in between around 21-24 degrees C, i think and i think u should just pick a strain tht sounds good do all the reading u can and go ahead and everything will work out perfect!!

Why grow when they're readily available in the pastures there? Unless your a mycologist at heart! :wink: Welcome friend!
