Why didn't I trip? What went wrong? (Anything would help, thanks!)
    #4397988 - 07/13/05 12:49 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

About four years ago I grew some good looking mushrooms following the steps of the PF Tek method. I followed each step to the T, everything was looking wonderful. After drying the shrooms (again following the method perfectly), I took several of them without tripping. I tried taking more, but again this did not work. I'm thinking about growing again but I want to figure out what went wrong last time. Here are some things that may have been a factor.

- I had the spores sent to me in Minnesota in January (Temps WELL below freezing almost all month, that year as low as 40 below) and they may have gone bad during shipping - Is the temp of spores a factor?
- I did not use a Drip Shield. I was very careful to not spray the mushrooms and none of them looked bruised.
- I ordered spores by mail. Was I stupid to think that I could get good spores by mail?

My feeling is that it was the weather, but any advice would help.

Most importantly, where should I go from here? Where should I get my spores? Thank you!

It wouldn't have to do with growing conditions most likely nutrients or you didn't eat enough how much did you eat?.... grams because 5 shrooms pf tek might not be enough even 20 might not be enough depending on size of cousre, those suckers can be small as hell.

Sometimes it just happens. Your really not going to find an answer...I can tell you that substrate has ALOT to do with potency, and you grew on one of the worst. Spawning to horse poo would get you some really nice results. Theres alot of info on bulk on this site. And if you dont have any good stuff locally, or dont want to hunt it, check out TN Stud on the sponsors page. With horse poo your almost guarenteed POTENT (best youve ever had) every time..still are flukes sometimes.

And you say "you ate a couple" ate a couple what? Hope at least 2 grams...little shrooms dont weigh squat either...you cant really eyeball a dose..so you may have just not eaten much.

Go to the sponsors page and choose any of them to order your spores. Make sure you mention your a member here, most will hook you up with freebies. Guarenteed products either way.

I would highly suggest doing alot of reading here...theres alot of good info in the FAQ and the archieve...everything you could need to know.

You pretty much have to eat 35 g wet off PF cakes, they're weaker due to a lack of nutes in BRF..

go to wild oats or any other health food store and buy some oat or wheat bran. bumps the nutes up and is sheap. ore just use rye and csae it.

for the bran i would do 25% bran 25% brf 50% verm and then water till its at field consistency
