rookie looking for veteran advice
    #3711720 - 02/01/05 05:03 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

hello to all-

i'm a newbie here and am excited to start my first grow. i have been involved with the cultivation of mary jane, but never mushrooms. i am looking for help getting my system up and running asap. space and money are not a problem. i'm also looking for a novice method, as long as i can have the correct info available, i'll learn it. my questions for some vets are this: any teks online that you'd highly reccommend? any strains that you'd reccommend in terms of yield, potency, and difficulty? what are some set-ups that you'd reccommend? any other info including must-read literature is also appreciated.

thanks- i look forward to joining this community

Welcome friend.

That's what this site is all about. When you have a few minutes, just look around the web site itself, and some of the message boards about cultivation. It's fairly straightforward.

Good luck, and welcome!

Howdy, welcome to the Shroomery!

If you're new to mushroom growing, your best bet would be to use the PF Tek. It is cheap, economical and pretty much foolproof (provided you follow the instructions).

As for strain, any Psilocybe cubensis is fine. Once you start going into the more obscure species like Ps. azurescens and cyanescens the cultivation difficulty increases dramatically. Despite what some people say, potency is pretty much similar across the range but there are minor subjective qualitative differences that can alter the experience.

The only other thing I can offer is to read www.shroomery.org (there is even a download of the entire cult. archive) and the forums. Get as much information as you can so that you marginalise your chance of error.

Good luck with your grow.
