8 quarts is enough to do about 4 dozen 1/2 pint jars. You'll want to get some brown rice flour too, usually available at health food stores.

I went to a organic store today, I went up to the counter with about 2 lbs of BRF and the guy at the counter was hippie hands down. He asked me what I was baking I smiled and said it was for my mom. He laughed and said of course he knew what was up :laugh:

That's cool. Never tell people strait out what you are up to though. Even friends can be dangerous will a little knowledge. Just some advice.

8 quarts of verm lasts me about a week. They say I should cut back but man I NEED my verm. They just don't understand..

As to that whole not telling people things..if I were to have a grow it would be able to put out 10-20 pounds (depending on contams, strains, you know bad stuff happens sometimes) and would be able to stay hidden within 3 closets (one for incubation and drying and two for fruiting). All locked of course. All supplies that were suspicious could be kept in the incubation closet and friends and family and anyone could come over and never know about the grow. Living in an apartment too. Not that I don't trust my friends but you never know when someones gonna be drunk or tripping and let something slip to someone else then that person lets it slip and you got a huge leak. Soon everyone knows you grow and thats bad for prices and police. So yeah..just keep your low down on the low down and stress to your best friends that you tell that the secret is important to be kept. This is of course just what I would do if I were to partake in something as illegal as cultivating mushrooms.

Agree 100%. With all the excitment of a first grow it is very difficult not to mention it. Although, when you find out that someone knows who you didn't intend on knowing you will regret it. It is one of those secrets that many people find just too good to keep. So.. unless you want to be ridden with anxiety, silence, other that maybe a few best friends, is a HUGE risk...

Silven's Don't Tell Other People Tek:

Step 1:  Purchase a fire-arm.  Preferably a handgun that is easily concealed.

Step 2:  Load the gun.

Step 3:  Throw the gun in your gun cabinet and lock it, don't shoot people with it, you freaking criminal.

Step 4:  Don't tell anyone you are growing mushrooms, if you are.  If you live where it's illegal, you shouldn't grow, well... because it's illegal.

Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?
