Cold Weather Shroom
    #3273096 - 10/24/04 10:50 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I'm planning on growing for the first time and I live in the northeastern United States. The temperatures in Boston where I live are quite cold and I was looking for an easy to grow, visual shroom that can stand the temperatures. B+ seems a little lame to me, although this may just be a personal bias. I really liked the looks of the Amazonians, but I don't know how they will fair the weather or my newbie growing techniques! I'm planning on using the PF Tek, although I would be willing to try any other method that might work better.

Additionally I was wondering where to order spore syringes from because I'm on a somewhat limited budget.

Thanks so much!

The PF Tek is a little "lame" to me... use casings if you're going to call shit lame :wink:  Anyway, B+ grew decently potent shrooms and massive quantities of them for afoaf :smile:  Then again, so did Cambodians. They grew nearlyer 5 times as much. Order from TLG for $15/syringe (a sponser). Later man

okay well i have tried PF tek and i would have to suggest Doc bird seed tek instead colonizes so much faster http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat...e=0&fpart=1
and about your question on spores use The Little Guy awesome prices esspecially for variety packs and they have the best customer service plus you get a free syringe with your order and there syringes are 2cc more than all the othe places as for an incubator tub in tub is cheap and awesome so use that. Im kinda new but i have tried popcorn Pf and WBS and i find WBS the best allready so id go with that and case it but thats up to you.

i live just outside of philly so i know what you mean about temps but indoor growing it doesn't matter

TLG looks fantastic. It's always nice to be able to help out a sponsor while getting quality goods :smile:

Is it a good idea to try and case my first time around? I've heard it can induce more problems, but I'm willing to try it.

How many syringes my first time around for a managable first crop?

Gulf Coast, B+, Cambodians? Any other opinions on what will survive the cold?

Is it good enough to spray the mushrooms to keep humidity up or do I really need a humidifier?

Thanks so much!

You're indoor temp can't be lower than 60 degrees farenheit. Just point a lamp at those suckers as they incubate and you can easily keep your temp up to 80 or so degrees most of the day.

Yeah the temperatures definitely don't go below sixty degrees. I was just really worried that I'd do everything right with the first batch of shrooms and end up messing them up with the temperature :smile:

The information I was reading on Gulf Coast seems to say that they like warm temperatures even more than other shrooms. Is this true?

I'm going to order two different spore syringes, so any suggestions? I'm so excited!!!

I couldn't find the Brazillians. Link me?

Can I get opinions on the Mexi-cub strain and the PESA strain. How hard are they to grow and does anyone have any reports on their potency?

Thanks again :smile:

I'm thinking of ordering the above two strains (Mexi-cub and PESA) from thehawkseye.com

Can I get opinions of the strains and/or website?

Mike, thanks for the brazillians tip...I'm going to try growing those too :smile:

Do any of these strains need to be cold-shocked? If I want to case, do I do that when I would normally prepare the shrooms for fruiting?

All the strains are basically the same as far as conditions. They all like and survive the same temps basically. 86 colonization, 75ish fruiting.

Instead of Cambodians get Brazilians. I've done both and let me tell you Brazils are way better.

Thats all Magash's Rye Tek. Read it. Read it again. Read it one more time. Follow it while reading it. Don't do what it doesnt say to do. And you got that shit down like whoa.
