Best Starter Strain?
    #3831393 - 02/25/05 03:19 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I read lots of Teks, and have visited a number of the spore sites and read about a number of strains. At the moment, a friend is leaning towards Golden Teacher for the philosophic effects that are often described. Basically, my friend wants an all around good perfomer. Quick turn around, prolific fruiting, and of course strong effects that he can be proud of sharing with a close friend. He plans on purchasing two syringes. What do you pros think? Any advice will be greatly appreciated...

...and thanks for the earlier direction, kind soul.

Peace for Now...

Thanks for the response...and I have to say I'm glad to hear it. I love the name. Cheesy, but I'm a word person.

Not to be a pain in the ass, but will brown rice with the simple cake thing do it for GT? Or is it one of those maneur loving mycs that needs a complicated set up?

B+, Equador, and Golden Teacher are my favorites.

skippy strain

~Skipp
"I like cigarettes, Miss Taggart. I like to think of fire held in a man's hand. Fire, a dangerous force, tamed at his fingertips. I often wonder about the hours when a man sits alone, watching the smoke of a cigarette, thinking. I wonder what great things have come alive from such hours. When a man thinks, there is a spot of fire alive in his mind---and it is proper that he should have the burning point of a cigarette as his one expression."

I personally think south american is a great strain; it's low mantainence and fast grower. i here the cambodians are really contam resistant. i agree with texas strain is really low mantainence good 4 noob. i have only a little experience with golden teachers; they are fast growing and they are pretty popular. what ever you choose good luck

Im in the same boat right now. I do have a strange question though. I have the kit and everything except spore syringes. Do i need one syringe for every jar or am i able to use the same one multiple times? I have been reading on here for a whlie, i just have not found that info yet.

Thanks

personaly I feel kits are a ripoff, many are set up to fail, sometimes it;s
the only way you can go, but to answer the question, one syringe can inoculate
about 10 jars.

Thanks. I think that i could set it up too, but my friend set it up for me so it wasn't like i paid the 130 dollar kit price at the local smoke shop, it was only 25 dollars. I can not wait to have the syringes get here.

Again thank you, you saved me a bunch of money

Thanks fellas. I really appreciate the feedback (feedforward?).

As far as the Texas one goes, I don't know if I could enjoy it. Right now I have all sorts of negative associations with the place.

So, as it stands, GT has a lot of votes. Equador and B+ have a couple, and Texas has a very strong one. Maybe, I'll go with a syringe of Eq and one of GT.

Thanks again.

Thanks for the advice, Roadkill, and I have a couple related questions.

Does the SA have a powerful kick?
Is either the Eq or the GT not a good producer?

Just want to get this right. Thanks...

1.) Yes it does.

2.) They both are good producers.

The South American just seems to be a better yeilding strain...IME

Many thanks. I will take your advice and get the SA, with a side of GT.

Very friendly of you to help out. The Cosmos will reward you...

Go with pans :smirk:, acually they're hard to grow and you have to use cow dung/straw, but they're really powerful, about 2x-3x times more than most cubes...

Personally I like creep best, it always have rhizomorphic growth when incubating and gives me a good visual trip, Gt's i don't like so much, they just give me a hardcore body trip and light visuals, but it varies from person to person. Good luck in your decision and in your future....fun :smirk:  :thumbup:
