Contamination with kits
    #3359463 - 11/14/04 12:54 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

when you buy kits do they often get contaminated compared to doing the pf tek? Is it safer to buy a kit?

dude, i answered ur question; i said the pf tek has yet to contam on me, that basically implies that its just as easy as a kit (if not, more so).

but to further answer your question:

all kits are different, this means that some will be more fopl-proof than others.
the pre prepaired myco bags are rather reliable, but ive hear dof more than one not work or simply contam.
i personally dont trust someone else to make my substrate, when you can do it fine yourself.

how come everybody that likes kits seems to be very irritable/mean?



....loosen up, ur growin mushies buddy;)

there are a great deal of kist that do contam easily, the PF tek will as well
if you are careless, the problem with kits is that they are frequently assembled
from things you can find around your town and still are nothing more than
the PF tek with 'extras', they simply give you everything you need except for
spores... of course that convienience comes at a price of 4x what you would
pay localy and in some cases its even higher on the markup plus you pay shipping

someone posted about a $200 kit that was an air pump, fishbowl, water bottle
and substrate, the basics of the instructions was to dump it all into the
fishbowl and and wait... there was nothing regarding sterility

Yeah, why are they mean? Geez, just trying to help out and yes, kits are terrible, he's got a point, why let someone else do it for you when you can do it yourself and rely on your own ability? Laziness? or lack of....? Not putting kits down but i don't see why people would use them unless they absolutely had to, mycology should be a great adventure full of contams. trips and indulging into information and learning...how the hell does a kit help you do that if you're not doing it all yourself? Yeah, i'm not big on kits but gl

kits are usualy purchased for the simplicity, most people that buy them have no
idea what their doing and believe they'll have more luck using a kit than starting
from scratch, frequently kits are misleading stating you can harvest pounds
of mushrooms from a small amount of substrate and because the buyers are unaware
of the truth they fall for it... it's kinda like the infomercials and how well
that crap sells

Oh yeah i understand that, And that is why I don't really like them, If you want to grow, i think you should start from scrath and get the full-fled experience....i could understand though if you were trying to keep it a secret and couldn't do all the procedures, but otherwise it just bothers me...like those kids that walk around all in black calling themselves Goth or those punkers with perfect parents and perfect lives...shit now you can buy a "punk" wardrobe...Ugh...its like that...But gl to who ever uses them and hopefully you'll want to do it yourself after you've seen what they can do or after you've gotten a million contams..lol...GL
