    :mushroom2:Hey there fellow shroomers! I plan on cultivting for the first time and I was wondering what the best strain to use is. So far I'm looking on this site called SporeWorks.com and it seems like there are a lot of good strains, but if anyone knows about any better or cheaper strains/sites, then please let me know! :smile: :mushroom2:

I think the general concensus about this is that most strains are more-or-less the same. Some have slightly faster spawn running, larger fruits, higher yield...etc. etc....but in the end, a cube is a cube, in my opinion. The outcome of your labors is more dependent on...well, your labors...rather than which strain you pick.


--------------------
In the end, my friend, we will all be together again.

i once inoculated 5 jars with Malabar and 5 jars with Golden Teacher...and all GT's contamminated, so 10 days later i knocked up 5 more with Equador, and the EQ's colonized a few days faster than the MAL's did...thats amazing.

same conditions....they simply grew faster than the MAL's i had.

MAL's came from Sporeworks, and GT and EQ came from Ralphstersspores.com FYI

I know that most strains are more or less the same. Do you think that I didn't look at this site before I asked my question? I was wanting to know if there were any easier or cheaper strains for my first time. I mean, it's my first time! I'll probably mess up a little and I don't want to spend a lot of money on the trial and error process, that's all. I probably should've made that more clear in the first post, but that was my fault so...any more advice?

Price doesn't change by the strain, it varies by vendor.
Look around here: http://www.shroomery.org/sponsors.php
SporeWorks is great, but there are cheaper places if you're worried about price.

>I know that most strains are more or less the same.
You know wrong. ALL strains are more or less the same.

>Do you think that I didn't look at this site before I asked my question?
Since you asked it, YES. See how many posts I have? I have probably read THAT MANY FRIGGEN POSTS ASKING THIS SAME GOD DAMNED QUESTION. So, had you read much into the site you would have seen the post stickied to the top that says SEARCH before POSTING a question.

>I was wanting to know if there were any easier or cheaper strains for my first time.
As everyone already said, NO.

>I mean, it's my first time! I'll probably mess up a little and I don't want to spend a lot of money on the trial and error process, that's all.
Most vendors give free syringe deals to shroomery members, look for cheaper vendors. Sporesdirect.com has 8 dollar syringes, good deals on 5 and 10 syringes, plus a free syringe with your order. 2 syringes for 8 bucks or 6 for 38 plus only 6 bucks shipping on any order size, good for large orders.

>I probably should've made that more clear in the first post
It was perfectly clear. People did not misunderstand you, you misunderstand them

>but that was my fault so...any more advice?'
Besides what I gave you...cubies will all vary. Potency, yeilds, size, color, speed, ease of pinning, resistance to contams, ect will all vary from strain to strain. They will also vary from substrain to substrain. My B+ wont turn out the same as yours. Not only because the spores are from a different place, but because we have different substrates and environmental conditions. And the longer I hold it and you hold yours the more different from eachother the strains will get as you change it, taking isolates or clones or new prints. Even your own B+ syringe with the same print will have tons of different spores in it. Different mycelium will grow in each jar (slightly) and each casing you make will be different. You could make 2 casings and one flourishes and nothing much happens to the other, made exactly the same. Do not look for others results for strains, try out a few that you want to try and see what you like and what grows good for YOU.

You also need to learn to use the search function and quit asking questions that are easily found by searching.
