I think im ready But i got some good questions.
    #3484561 - 12/12/04 01:31 AM (11 years, 11 months ago)

I have never gone at this before but i been reading it for years. I finally found a guide that i think i can use and its from Erowid witch is a site i really trust.

The guide is found here.
http://www.erowid.org/plants/mushrooms/mushrooms_mmgg.shtml

I am happy with the guide it looks like i can start a sucessfull crop for under 50 dollars.
My Questions are as follows.

Cant i use a Rubber Maid Storage Box? Its Bigger And Better in my mind

What type of bolts?

What type of wire mesh? Wont it rust or ruin my Shrooms? Im really concearned about rust

Sould i do a rubdown with alcohol on the terrianium before putting the cakes in ther?

Wont the cakes get infected this way by opening it to drain water or fill it with more
water to keep it going?

Are these air pumps good? and how long should i let the air pump run?

http://www.petsmart.com/global/product_d...D=1102829321884

And for the drip shield can i use a glass pane? Or does anyone know were i can buy plexiglass? Or
Of a another Drip Shield Alternitave.

Do i need to make sometype of lighting arrangement? They will be in my basement in my room
with 4-6 hrs of light from a 60w bulb

i will be using a heater since my basement is usally 60-65 degrees. Should i keep it at about 68-80 degrees? and
is this a good heater http://www.petsmart.com/global/product_d...D=1102830870827

Is the drying method Safe? Will The Calcium Cloride or damprid or dampy be gone
harm the shrooms? And were can you get it?

I really apperciate any and all feedback and thanks for helping a new guy out and thanks for spreading the knowledge.

I dont think rust would harm them. Use chicken-fence they
are usually stainless.

I would use peroxide instead of alcohol as for cleaning the
terrarium.

Dripshield is pretty unnecessary, better use perlite instead

What is Perlite? And did any one actually read the guide? I mean i would think that the humidity would build up on the shrooms
Is anyone out there that read this and knows what there talking about?

Search for the pmp if you want a fancy fruiting chamber. If you want a cheap one get a container, rubbermaid is fine, buy some perlite (in the garden section of stores), line the bottom with an inch or 2 of it, and add enough water so there is just a little sitting on the bottom. You don't need a drip shield. 4-6 hours sounds fine. Mycelium grows best at 86 F, and about 70 for fruiting, but you don't need it to be at 86, you can grow it at 60 F. Damprid and stuff is fine as long as you don't eat it.

Here is the problem Mortland. You started off by saying that you "have been reading for years". You then go on to ask questions that beg to be called "good", much less "informed"...

Not to be harsh, but most everyone here has spent the time reading and reading and reading the knowledge that is available, and they now would like to help with problems and improve on tried and true methods.

As far as people reading the guide you pointed to, it is one of many many many similar guides, and one can see that within the first page. Therefore to ask everyone to read a very lengthily guide (that they have probably already read a million times for themselves)...JUST to find some small differences...well lets just say its not going to happen with most people.

Granted, there is probably no "silver bullet" guide - everyone HAS to do something different. But a good place to start is by reading the following guides, and seeing what you can come up with by adding them together:

PF-Tek (or variation of...)
PMP (Poor Man's Pod)
Growing FAQ

All of these can be found in the java dropdown menu at the top of the page...

And finally...most everything I just said is posted in a permanent thread at the top of the board, as well as the page that you had to find the small "continue" link to post past... and THAT my friend, is why people aren't very forgiving of "newbie" questions...

I know what strikes me as odd about this. It is totally unnatural. The whole idea is just totally backwards.

So are historians going to look back at 'The Great Cake Eaters'? Damn. That was a backwards step in the evolutionary process. We left Shroomheads in the dust. Welcome to the new age of Vermheads.

I ONLY STUDY legal, edible mushrooms and mycology. Any mention of any other kind of mushroom is purely fictional, and pictures are ripped from the internet. I do not grow mushrooms!

This heater kicks ass and these people ship the same day you order it.

Walmart has good clear tubs with clear tops currently.

60W bulb? Sounds incandescent. Some people say compact fluorescent bulbs are better because they give out more blue whereas incandescents give out yellow/red.
