Help a noob pick a strain
    #3242787 - 10/11/04 02:13 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I am starting to gather materials for my first cultivation and wondered what kind of strain the experts advise for noobs. Anyone got any suggestions?

Any psilocybe cubensis strain, they are all relatively the same.

If it helps, my first strain was Psilocybe Cubensis Equadorian.

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?

Cubies are cubies. This question asked at least twice a day.

I started with Z and they were cool..really its all preference though..everyone will give you a different answer (with an overall agreement that cubies are cubies are cubies).

yeah, I asked that too, I think. I must've spent at least 2 days trying to read up on strains on line. Of course I was thinkin' "yeah yeah, you guys say that, but what's the REALLY good one?"

So, don't take it personally. But this is asked a lot. And the answer is still the same.

Pick chubby ones. KSSS is a good one. They are easier to clean and harvest than the little skinny ones.

Ok well sorry about the frequently asked question. I just wanted to know if any certain strain grows faster or more plentyful but i guess not.

There are faster strains.. But it's only matter of days. An ideal condition for colonization and fruiting will make difference in weeks. So, timewise, it's all the same still. It's just matter of taking care of them.
There is again a slight difference in how much they fruit. Some give you big first flush and some give you bigger second and third flush. But again, it's the condition that matters.

There are some people here with faster strains that take 4 times as long as my golden teacher. And bigger strains like b+ that yield only few grams total.

It's not really a bad question(I know, I've been there), but it's repeated a lot. Some people want you to research a bit first, that's all.

If you really want my opinion on the strain, I'd say stick with B+ or EQ. I don't have either but I've heard a bit more about them than others.

Oh yeah.. Don't order from E-BAY!! Evil bay is bad. Use one of the sponsors here. Any one of them will work well.

Anyways, good luck to you! Many Many Monster Mushie Wishies for ya!

Enough waffling. Go to The Hawks Eye and order Koh Samui Super Strain. If you don't like it you can kick my ass.
