Shroomery is to growing shrooms as Overgrow is to growing bud. Go check the site out man. I actually started off trying to grow some bud from a few seeds I had saved up - they ended up being duds and I scrapped the entire project. Coincidentally, I started visiting this site more and learned how to grow shrooms. Now I'm well on my way with the first myc sprouting in my jars.

Growing bud is pretty damn easy though - none of this contamination business where you have to go around sterilzing everything. At most, you'll have to wipe down old pots with some chlorine before you dump some dirt in them and plop in the seed. However, growing shrooms can be much more stealthy than bud. Plants get to be 4ft+ when they are ready to be picked, (and thats for the "stealthy" grows). Growing bud is also more expensive - average seed prices range from 20 to 30 bucks, and can get MUCH more expensive depending on where you get them from and what strain they are. Then you have to think about lighting and electrical issues.. the money adds up fast. So, like I said, check out overgrow.com and see for yourself what its like to cultivate your own little ladies.

Growing marijuana is much more difficult and expensive than growing comparable amounts of mushrooms (assuming both are done indoors)

Growing pot isn't the same as growing mushrooms. With 'shrooms, you just use a straw/compost mix. Some compost sucks, I guess, but for the most part bovnie feces and straw gives you excellent results. It's more a matter of sterility and asepsis. Some people measure pH levels in casings, substrates, etc, but most do not. When you are growing pot, pH is a must, as are TDS, EC measurements. It's just another skill that you have to learn and once you've learned it you are gonna do fine. Green growin':) Of course, overgrow.com is the Shroomery of the ganja-growers world.

Mushroom growing doesnt increase my electric bill by 3 figures a month (unlike my couple remote ballast 1000W high pressure sodium lights) and bulk substrates (horse poo) are free and easy to aquire (unlike hydroponic nutrients)

Finding good seed is not a problem if you have respect for breeders  :rolleyes:

I have got to say that now Im in the process of my first flush (picked 40wet grams today) and once upon a longtime ago I grew weed.... I have got to say that the Mushroom experience of growing was FAR EASIER more interesting etc...(cheaper I may add) than was growing weed... Fuck it give both of them a try... My love fore growing isnt to save to money etc... but its more of a spiritual thing of that a drug I enjoy so much I really want to have my own two hands in the process of 'raising' them... Im thinking that it will at least make my shroom experience with these new guys that I just picked even that more special.... Whatever you decide good luck!!!

Growing weed is much more expensive and difficult then mushrooms, when growing comparitive weights.

although, as with every hobby, there are cheap ways to do things and there are expensive ways to do things.  I seem to remember a small book came out called pot for pennies.  It was just a guide on how to set up simple hydroponic systems using common products (like soda bottles and shit).  It may not produce those killer yields a nicer setup will get you, but you can still grow pot. 

Ive been wanting to get into herb growing so bad, but, i dont have any connections for seeds.  And there is no such thing as a hydro shop in my town or any town nearby.  And its just way to shady to do an outdoor grow.  Ah well, someday, i waited 4 years to do mushies i can wait another 4 to do weed :laugh:

Heres an idea.... Concentrate all your energies on getting ounces apon ounces of beautiful mushies, and then trade a retard dealer for herb.  Seems to work for me.  Its way harder to find mushies than herb by me, so i give em the old OPEC  :smile:
