SCREW THE GROW KITS!!!
    #4168302 - 05/12/05 10:31 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Okay so I really think that someone should make a sticky at the top of this page about Grow Kits. 

Beginners often like to ask the question:
Do you know a good grow kit?

The answer usually being:
Visit a sponsor, but if you really want value for your $, build your own setup and learn about it yourself.

Well beginners, here's why we say ... just do it yourself.

Typical Mushroom Kit(s)

Observe the link above.  They have the full range of kits at about typical prices.  Lets break it down here folks...

========================
The Myco101 Starter Kit - $139.00 + shipping
A good way for beginner mushroom enthusiast to have a successful first crop is by utilizing a self-fruiting cake from our world famous substrate jars. The jars are pre-sterilized with inoculation points for easy access. Just shoot up and incubate.

Includes

? 1 - Grow Chamber with Hepa-type filter
? 1 - Incubation chamber with heater
? 12 - Substrate Jars
? 1 - Quart perlite
? 1 - Thermometer
? 1 edible culture syringe

TOTAL COST (including shipping) = approx. 150$
=========================
What it really costs if you put it together yourself.....

+Incubation chamber + Tub in Tub incubator ((3 Rubbermades)) = 25$
+"heater" or aquarium heater = 15$ or so
+12 substrate jars ((12, 1/2 pint jars; 1lb BRF; 1 bag of vermiculite))=15$
+1 quart perlite = 5$
+Thermomneter = 5$
+Syringe (From a Shroomery vendor) = 16$ or so.
+ few gallons of gas to go where you just went to get that stuff=5$

DO IT YOURSELF PRICE = 85$ or so.  You might need some other crap.. but that's about the direct cost to you to do this.  Plus you don't get an 'unusable' edible syringe... pfft... why waste all that stuff on an edible?
================================

So what have we learned here?? Do your research, there's a better option than a grow kit.  Anyone, I mean ANYONE can assemble the stuff above with minimum effort & time.  Scroll down to the bottom of that page at the link above.  550$ for the "full setup".  Imagine your savings if you built THAT yourself.  I'd say youd save 50% or so if you did it yourself.

Thanks for reading  :grin:

Keep on truckin honkeys

LoL @ Diver. Thanks man. I just wanted to put out a semi informative post here to beginners and newb's that there's another option that works just as well. I hope it helps some of you to stay away from the growing kits as much as possible.
