How much would it cost to grow and keep on growing?
    #3954833 - 03/22/05 07:04 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Hey guys, I'm thinking of starting to grow mushrooms, but I was hoping someone could give me a rough estimate of how much this is going to cost.

Cheers!

Your initial supplies could easily be had for <$100, and excluding the consumables (food sources) most of it will be reused over and over. Pressure cooker included in this estimate too. They can be found for <$50 if you look around.

Once I bought my first pressure cooker, the rest of my supplies didn't run me more than $50. I still use a lot of those items even today.

assuming you start w/ wbs

12 pack of jars (pint)= ~$10
10 lb bag WBS= ~$6
1 rubbermaid tub= ~$5
1 syringe w/ spores from shroomery vendor= ~$10...not sure but you can check.
1 flourescent "under sink" light ~$10

everything on that list is reusable assuming you re-use jars and take spore prints and make home made syringes. also, the wbs will last a long time.

It just depends on the SCALE of cultivation, your $$ means, room, privacy & many other factors. You Q is to general (like asking how much a car costs = sky is limit = depending on type car).

Yahhh, for afoaf, I spent about 2000$ the past month getting a massive cycle together, but with a little extra time and being a bit more frugal, less than $200 would set you up immensly. Less than 100$ will start you out.

me and my bro just started growing. We probably got all the basics for like $300. After you have all the reusable stuff, everything else is dirt cheap!

Brown Rice Flour: ~$3 per small bag will do about 10 pints of substrate.

Vermiculite and Perlite: $3 for a bag the size of a pillow

lysol: can be kinda pricey, but that's why you get the generic brands for ~$2-$3.

HEPA filters: haven't had to replace mine yet, but they last for a long time and if you get a small one, aren't too expensive.

All in all, it would probably cost you at least $30 a month to maintain your grow maybe even less. And that depends on how much you produce and what you do with them after you grow them ($$cough$$).

so considering how much fun you'll have and how much you'll help your friends and local psychedelic community, i'd say it's worth every penny!!

First, $199 got AFOAF this nice locking working space.



Then it filled this dresser with over at least 1 dozen of over 18 cubie strains, some as many as 60 half pints per strain.
(dont have a pic of its contents, believe me or not, I dont care)



Then it got AFOAF every commericially available Ps., Pan., and gym specie to speak of.

At least 3 dozen jars and various containers per exotic specie, with every substrate mixture possible.

140 liquid culture half pints.

250 grams mea, loops, petri dishes, full spectrum of 6 agar antibiotics (several each), 4 humidifiers, 2 HPS lights, timers, ohh and just about ever strain every vendor has to offer, from each one.
(yes, that means over a hundred syringes in 3 weeks)

Yahh it set AFOAF up pretty good.

technically a person would be "OC" (obsessive-compulsive) but he's referring to the obsessive-compulsive disorder.

was he growing weed too? why would he buy 2 HPS for shrooms? If im not mistaken that probably retails around $700-800 (including fixtures)...seems like an expensive light when any floro would do fine

???
