Is it hopeless?
    #4160486 - 05/11/05 03:37 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I live in a..territory..of the U.S. where the buying/selling of everything mushroom is illegal..what am i to do to go about growing my own little friends?...
can i use already dried, ready to psychadelize caps to make spore prints? or do only fresh caps work?

like ^^^^^^^ said, you can't used dried caps. Worry not though, spores are legal for microscopy purposes in the US for now--try visiting the shroomery's sponsors, they're all reputable! Good luck! :thumbup:

You CAN use dried caps, but only in conjunction with agar. Which might be a little complicated for a newbie.

It seems like fresh caps are needed for the agar method also..think it'll work if i just go ahead and use dry caps though?

Well could you not just spray a syringe of water into the underside of dryed caps, collect the water as it runs off into another syringe and use that? If you were dead set against ordering spores ..

Theres got to be spores still in there, I think they like being dry as well so no worries there.

I reckon it would work, but as anyone on here would tell you, you MAY face serious contamination issues, depends where the shrooms have been I suppose. Theres ways around that though, if it catches at all.

Personally I would buy 4-5 good strains and make a shitload of prints for each after each grow. Decide which ones you like the best and keep making prints every time you harvest.

Start out with B+, Cambodian, Ecuadorian, Puerto Rican, and Golden Teacher. There is a lot of strains out there, so this list is not complete by any means.

You can also do grain-to-grain transfers as well to extend the life of a single syringe. Read up on the teks, place an order, and quit being so paranoid.

It's not like the cops are watching your mail box on the off chance that you may order some illegal spores.

Agreed.

And of course once you've got that far it ceases being a problem. You have shrooms up to your ears forevermore.  :flowerchild:
