Never grown before. I want to start with some strain of P. Cubensis. I was looking at "Treasure Coast" cubies. Anyone got advice for a first time grower, or some sites they recommend for ordering spores and/or supplies?


If you haven't gone to http://www.boohbah.com while you are tripping... it's a must.

EQ, GT & B+ are good strains to start with.
Any vendor here is reputable: My foaf's fav is TLG. Priced RIGHT, clean, viable & ships like a rocket.

I myself am a first-time grower. I've had a bit of trouble growing my TC. And I am growing them on 4 diff substrates. I have no contamination, the temp and water content seem to be just right, and I shook the syringe so perhaps I acquired an old syringe... It took two weeks for 5 of my 8 TC jars to germinate. They myc is growing really slow compared to my 3 other strains. Bought all my syringes from sporesource. Had very timely delivery and contam-free syringes. check out the mushroom cultivation FAQ. AND GOOD LUCK! I would suggest from my experience thus far B+ or EQ.

Live free or die.

welcome to the shroomery - you've come to the right place  :smile:
try this first - readreadreadreadreadreadreadreadread /deepbreath readreadreadreadreadreadaread until it's comin' outta your ears. but stick to reading on the thing you're doing, despite the temptation to read about grains, bulk, agar, liquid myc, edibles, outdoor, cloning etc.

read me first

My friend has had great success with mazatepec and b+, mazatepec on his first grow. Also, look for the karo tek and inject with myc instead of spores. He says this will help and can be used for many jars. Good luck!
