I just need a good method...
    #4096108 - 04/25/05 06:51 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Ok, plain and simple I just need some GOOD cultivation advice. I want to be able to grow enough to trip with 2-3 people at a time (12 g), at about a 1 trip/month rate. I know I'm probably going to get flamed for this thread but it seems like there are so many methods and techniques out there that I really have no idea where to start. I just need to know what method would be good for me. I'm not stupid, so I think I can handle a slightly more complicated technique if you know of one. I just need someone to point me in the direction of a technique that WORKS, and will provide me with enough shrooms to trip from time to time. OR, would I better off trying to get a grow kit and going that route? Thanks.

-also, any strand suggestions?

All work, YOU need to tel whats good for YOU. What space you have, your goals, what substrates you can find, what growing equipment you have to work with. Any tek and the shromery will work. Pick any one of them, and follow it. Read Magash's Rye Tek and all of the posts by "agar". Use the FAQ and the Search functions..

I'd recommend becoming familiar with WBS (wild bird seed) in quart jars, and learn how to spawn that to a bulk substrate such as horse poo. In my personal opinion cakes (PF tek) are a pain in the neck and not too user friendly, though I'm sure people will recommend you to the PF tek for starters.

Wild bird seed and using poo are both covered in the grow teks.

Save yourself the money on the horse manure. Call a local equestrian facility and shovel it yourself. I live fairly close to a big city and found one within 10 miles of my house. I asked the owner of the facility and got over 100 pounds of the stuff for FREE!

I'll never look back on it again.

like Diver said, there's going to be someone who recommends PF. that's me, i guess. they certainly don't have as of a yeild potential as bulk methods, but there are fewer places to screw up (IMO). but, if you have courage, and are careful, bulk IS the way to go, especially with manure... good luck!

by some odd chance did you mean 12 grams instead of 12 ounces...
cause the amount you said you wanted sounds more like a 12 gram yeild...

if all you want is 12 grams once a month, I highly recommend pf-tek as for that small of an amount, it's an almost foolproof method

I'm pretty certain he meant 12 grams, I was just makin a joke.  PF does seem like the way to go here though.  Unless he just wants do do one grow to supply the year, then bulk is the way... GL bro :stoned:

I think he meant 1/2 ounce, he forgot the /. For 1/2 oz. or 12 grams, the pf tek would probably be your best bet.

It all depends on your tolerance for failure!

If your itchin for shrooms ASAP do the PFTek as it's pretty much a sure bet. You could use some of the cakes for spawn or break them up and case them if you wanted to try more advanced stuff.

I've you don't mind the chance of getting all contams and no shrooms go straight to grains and poo.

Im going to suggest the pf tek. You can get a half ounce easy a month just from 6 small cakes.

Its EASY!
Its DOES give good yields if followed to the T. (Dunk and Roll that shit!)

I have been growing for over a year and still use mainly the PF tek. I can pull about a 1/2 lb dry a month with minimal work just with it alone. It can be anoying if you want to do alot but I could whip up six cakes in about 5 minutes. It really isnt that time consuming.

Forget growing constantly. Just do one big bulk grow. Some PF cakes spawned to horse poo. Couple a nice poo tubs should get you a good 4-5 ounces, enough to last you the year. One grow a year, none of the bullshit.

there's a link to the search function at the top of every page...
