Starting off: What strain?
    #3258973 - 10/21/04 02:25 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Hello all.  New to this site...about 3 minutes new actually :smile:  I have been doing my homework, reading guides and looking over posts and I've decided to try growing.  The only thing I'm having trouble deciding is what strain I should start off with.  I am assuming I will want something that is relatively forgiving of beginner mistakes.  Seems that all signs point to Amazonian.  Is this a good one to start off with?  Thanks in advance for any input you have.

all of the PC are good. They're all easy, relatively hard to contam. I like the thailand KS, many love equador. the hawks eye is introducing a new china strain later this week or next week.

Derx, I agree with you, PCs are good, much better than steam sterilizing. :wink:

ledzep, honestly, I think you'll have equally good chance with any cubensis strain.  Just pick 1.  You'll probably end up with a dozen or two different strains by next year this time anyways.

General consensus is that all cubensis are good for beginners.  There are few different things about each, but none of them should be a concern as much as equipments you choose to use and amount of care you give them.  Good Luck!

BTW, welcome to the shroomery!

I am also new. My understanding is that all of the Psilocybe Cubensis are in the same ballpark in terms of ease of cultivation. However, there seems to be a general consensus that the "tropical" strains (I.E. Amazonians, Brazilians, Ecuadorians, and Cambodians) grow a little faster and more aggressively.

I've been hearing a lot about this "Z" strain. I have been looking for it on some of the sponsor sights but can't seem to find it. Is there another name for it? Am I just a complete noob lol? Thanks for all the info too, it is all greatly appreciated. I will probably be starting in about a month, and posting questions to the point of annoyance. Please bear with me : )

P.S. Thank you for the welcome Sam!

I got it from www.spore-syringe.com not a sponcer site, but 3 day shipping and good cutomer support.

Check that site, page 6, in the middle.

If your looking for a good first strain, go with brazilian from ralphsters, it wont let you down, guaranteed. :thumbup:

I suggest you make some jars and get a few mycobags at the same time (these work like a charm for a first grow if you dont contaminate them or get really unlucky). I have found that although strains vary from spore to spore that Mazatepec and Aussie colonize and fruit like crazy. While Brazilians and Cambodians colonize slowly although their reputaion says different. Just go with what you are looking for and use extremely sterile practices and you will be happy with the results.
