I would read every grow guide you can, and decide which way would work best for you and your supplies.

no no no no no no noooooo. DO NOT USE SHROOMWIZARDS TEK. Let me tell you a mushroom story.

Once upon a time there was a man name edrosariokid. he decided that he wanted to give a try at shroom wizards tek. IT FUCKED UP. Whats wrong with it is that the watering is so so wrong. shroomwizards guide says to spray the suface with 12 pumps 1-2 times a day. if you want a dry ass casing then go ahead. heres whaqt i did and im lucky because i managed to save my casing. I used all the same steps blah blah until i got to the fruiting stage. When you get to the fruiting stage use a perlite setup. I fruited my shrooms with the original method. i then realized that my casing was very dry. so i decided to switch it up. I put the casing in a perlite container. this provided the humidity i needed and now i have alot of shrooms growing. i am still in the process of harvesting. good luck

there's a great deal wrong with the shroomwizzards guide, as Ed mentioned the watering is problem and it's just one issue... follow the PF tek that was written by Psilocybe Fanaticus, you'll get better results

yea shroomery teks are nice. if your using pf jars i would just say follow what you think. for example i followed the pf tek al the way through colonization of the jars. i was planning on using jars in a terrenium. but thhen i decided to case it. now everything is going just fime.

PFFFF. I scoff at the PF-TEK. If you are willing to read and learn, and you can scrape together some $, you can do alot better than PF tek.

Read Paul Stamets The Mushroom Cultivator and Medicinal Mushroom Grow Guide.

Get the biggest pressure cooker you can afford. You will probably want one that will fit quart jars.

Invest in a laminar flow hood, or make your own. Glove boxes suck.

OR

If you're broke and lazy, just do the PF TEK. Go to the cultivation FAQ.

Here's your link, lazy guy.

Also - seems everyone around here prefers the PF-tek for newbs..

AFOAF tried pf-tek, miserable failures both times.

AFOAF finds whole grain brown rice, no verm, let it colonize, and case with a soil, birth when pinning.

Kinda a whole grain cake.

But for some reason, people are dead set on PF... Whole grain fruits much longer.

pftek sucks, i honestly don't know why people aren't just sent straight into using grains w/ a pressure cooker and either casing or fruiting as a cake, casing is not difficult by any means

The main reason is habit. Most beginers dont have a PC when they get into the hobby. The PF Tek allows you to still grow mushrooms without having to buy one and if you dont have a PC or the funds to buy one...definatly a GREAT beginner tek.

Of course...I've never done it. :smile: I went right to grains...I had no problem buying a (two) PC. Cheap, big. Grains are just as easy, if not easier. All around better. Unless you dont have a PC. Then maybe not. If ya got one though.....
