Three Starter Questions
    #3624786 - 01/13/05 08:43 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Hey everyone! Ive seen out of all the mushroom sites that this is definitely the best one. Ive decided to take on some responsibility to try and grow some shrooms for the first time. This is my first post and I have 3 questions to ask if you all wouldn't mind.

First question-
What are the best 3 websites to order spores from -located inside the US.

Second Question-
What are the easiest most strongest strain of spores that you could grow? I searched and some people said that the B+ strain was a good starter. I'm looking for shrooms that don't grow that tall but instead grow more wide. hmmm :confused:

Third Question-
I read on a tek that after you sterilize your jars in a pressure canner you can store them indefinitely until you are ready to inject them with your spore fluid. Is that true? Wouldn't letting the jars sit out for weeks eventually evaporate all the moisture inside the jars? I have all my materials except the spores. I want to start sterilizing the jars now but I don't want waiting a week for receiving the spores to effect any sterile or any conditions of the jars.

Please Help!!!

To help answer some of your questions...

(1) visit any of the shroomery's sponsors. They are all good vendors with a reliable history.

(2)All I can do is show you my experience with B+. Here's a cake of this strain that I have going right now.


(3)I've heard of people purposely leaving uninnoculated jars to sit for a week or so just to be sure no contams started to grow. I've never done it and my own opinion is that it would not be wise to leave them for more than 2 weeks as I would be concerned about the moisture content as you said. I really don't know enough about this to properly answer your question though. It's just a hunch.

SporesDirect.com :thumbup: :thumbup:
spores101.com :thumbup: :thumbup:
ralphstersspores.com :thumbup: :thumbup:

there are many more very good companies to order from these are just 3 that I would reccomend :mushroom2: :mushroom2:

I would consider myself a newbie as well i would agree that B+ is a pretty good strain to start out with.

So if I left the uninnoculated jars out for at least one week it should be fine?

Really I believe that the PF classic was known for its fat stams too. Some called that strain as: "the fatman"! :d

I've only got one grow under my belt, but here's some suggestions.
I believe all the vendors here are pretty reliable. I went with www.spores101.com

I also went with cambodians. Easy and fast to grow!

Last, I don't know much about the length of time steralized jars should sit. I steralized my jars the day before I inoculated them. I was worried about moisture escaping/evaporating or whichever.
I would just follow whichever tek you are using.

Good luck!! :thumbup:
