Growers In Europe Unite :)
    #4311006 - 06/18/05 04:06 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Hi, i put a sugestion forward in the feed back section about this ...

http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat...rue#Post4258841

But havnt got any feedback haha..

I think a thread like this even a sticky that translates all the american products into european products would be great , ill get the ball rolling ...

Canning jars can not be found in Europe, The closest is either


these jars found in tesco (about 3euro a jar)

Or Squeeze Orange Marmalade (about 2euro a jar)




Next is Lysol ... That is domestos or Dettol, any anti bacterial spray that says it kills 99% of germs really. Found in any supermarket or chemist (about 3-5 euro)


Next is Geolite ... thats called HydroLeca and found in garden centers (about 10euro for a big bag)

The bag in the top middle is the one,  also vermiculite and perlite bags are there to show you what they look like


PolyFil(er) in europe is a paste that you fill in cracks in walls with :smile: so the closest i can find is supa synthetic filter wool, found in pet shops used for filters (about 1-2euro for a box)


I hopefully will put in more like Tyvek ... i still duno what that is over here :smile: So any help?

And if anyone has any other things that they found hard to find then post them here (if you have a pic thats even better and where u got it and price) And maybe people can do one for australia, england, spain, france etc

Haaa you talk like Europe is a different planet. And I HIGHLY doubt that no canning jars exist there.

you're talking of english products, not european. obviously every country in europe has its own brand names and different products.

canning jars do exist here, but they don't have a 2 pieces lid like masons (separate ring).
also, we don't have gauges on pressure cookers. never heard of any though, except professional lab autoclaves of course.
we don't get tyvek for free at postal offices,
and thanx god we don't use that karo shit in our diet :smile:

Yeh i know that im talking of english products, thats why im saying spain and france etc should do one aswell, like its hard enough trying to turn all the amazing information here from american english to english english , so id say like turning american english to spanish products is impossible :smile:

So what do you use for the Tyvek? and what do you use for your LC?

mmh, basically in Switzerland , and now Austria ive had a hard time to find various stuff:

Switzerland:

There's no Lysol, no Domestos, but "Sagrotan" Spray. Or you just go into the pharmacie and buy H2O2.

Polyfil: Synthetic Filter Floss, out of a petstore

Coco Fibres: At least in Geneva, i couldnt find any, they always wanted to sell Coco Soil. So i had to order it online.(And i looked in Headshops)

Peat Moss: Yes, this too i couldnt find in a Gardening Center. I ordered this online too...

Jars: I agree with TheLegend (which is a myth to me...) i cant find any jars which are broader on the top than below. Just use ovenbags, or break up the mycelium.

Verm: Headshop had it once, but after that only coarse. Guess what i did? - Yes, order online!

Organic Subs: Gotta find an organic shop

I think this is due to the fact that Switzerland only has one Gardening Store change, which also owns one of the two decent supermarket chains. (No, its not communist)

Austria:

Found everything i needed, due to the fact that when in doubt i can go to MM.org which are situated right near my University. Unfortunately they are rather expensive (sorry marve, but its true...) so i buy
Coir in a Headshop (Kokuserde)
Filterfloss in a Petshop (Filterwatte)
Straw in a Gardening and DIY center (Stroh f?r kleintiere, OBI )
Organic stuff: Gotta find an organic shop (?ko-laden ;-P )
No Broad Mouthed Jars


Germany: (I had to send some stuff to a friend so i know)

Lysol: Sagrotan, or H2O2 (Schlecker)
Polyfil: Synthetic Filterfloss (Filterwatte)
Peat Moss: DIY and Gardening center (Toom baumarkt hats sicherlich)
Stuff he couldnt find, which i had to send: Coir, fine verm, broad mouthed jars


If anyone know where to get Coir or Verm in Germany, please tell me. (Aber nicht Tiefenrausch.com bitte)

If you live in one of these countries and something is still not clear or you have additions please, please PM me.

Concerning Switzerland: I do not speak italian, and my written french is bad.

Tyvek is used in almost every new home construction. They wrap that shit all the way around the houses. If you go over to the local "home depot" or whatever store over there that is geared towards the "do it your-selfer", you will almost definetly find giant roles of tyvek for a very cheap price :wink:, some of the places even sell it by the foot.

Canning and corn syrup seem to be US things alright. I saw jars in a heatlh store once but it was far cheaper to buy the squeeze or those bonne mamam (sp?) jars and dump out the jam. It is also cheaper for me to buy full 3-4litre jars of pickles and bump them than buy empty jars. Malt extract in brew stores & health shops (holland & barret have their own brand)

I have lots of filter discs, I must send a bunch to the fsre to send with prints. Tyvek masks can be got in diy stores. Verm, perlite in gardening centres. Wheat in the pet shot (rye is VERY rare where I am), millet is in health shops and expensive.

Aerosol dettol is better than the squirty domestos pictured. The squirt is for surfaces, but the aerosol goes right into the air.

Agar in asian shops.
