1st grow, need lots of help
    #4581443 - 08/25/05 10:26 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Hello out there, I've been reading this web site and finding all the information I can about growing for about a month now. The reason for this is because down here in south Texas, a gram of shrooms is 20-25$ and I'm tired of paying ridiculous prices so i just want to start growing my own, for me and a few friends.

I decided to go with the PF-Tek and will be using this tutorial for my grow: http://www.fungifun.org/pf/pf_en.htm#materialien.

Basically to start off with, I'm going to need quite a bit of help. I think I have all the steps down but just in case I need a little help from all of you professionals.

I was thinking about going with the B+ strain because I read that they are very easy to deal with, but what are your opinions? Also, what website do you guys prefer.

I will be documenting this grow from the day i buy all the items I need, to the day of the last flush and the shrooms are dried. I will be taking pictures every day of my results that I get.

If anyone would like to help or just tag along and see how my first grow goes feel free to comment on anything. I'm going to need as much help as I can get. If anyone has any questions or Want to give any advice feel free at any time.

Thanks,
llamaman01

I'm sorry, I didn't word that right. I wanted to know what website you all have trust in and have ordered spores there from before, or maybe a website that has a deal?

I really like everything about it, from start to finish it has been a very vigorous strain, including the highs. great visual and auditory hallucinations as well as a very vibrating body high. maybe its just me though. none have given me such a well rounded trip at this point.
i did just get some pe swabs from ralph, can't wait to get them going and try some penis, hahaha, NOT. LOL

awesome pe's you've had too. nice 12 g's. my biggest so far is 9.8 g's dry. my avi. should have been more had it been a meaty bastard but it was a bit on the hollow side. maybe just the strain, b+. all of them seem to be that way. the lips on the other hand are pretty meaty.

just wondering, was there any type of shroom that is more resistant to contam. Im also looking for something that is a little more visual and easy most of all.

not that i am aware, once the myc colonizes the substrate 100% then contams shouldn't be much of a worry.
You get out what you put in, just like everything in life. this hobby is not that hard as long as you follow the tek you are doing. do this a couple of times and then you can have a better understanding of how the myc operates.
So in other words go check out the sponsors and pick a strain that looks appealing to you and go with it.
:peace:

well none of the people that were pitching in for this, (only i was going to take care of and grow the mushrooms) wanted to do it the easy and cheap way, so they ordered this "grow kit":
http://www.amazing-nature.com/info/3200.htm

I know how much of a waste buying this thing was but my friends didnt and they bought it without me. I am the only one that has read everything that I possibly can about growing shrooms and I would consider myself a beginner but still at least I have a little bit of knowlege. But any way I was wondering:

1. Will this thing actually produce what it says?
2. Is it a good strain?
3. Can I flush this multiple times?

Thanks for all your help and in the future sometime I do plan on growing my own and doing everything myself which I will document on this post.

llamaman01 I'm in south Texas, Maybe I can help you. I did 3 grows and got lots of this stuff under my belt now, Unfortunately, I didn't like having to run to the window EVERY time I herd the dogs bark so I cut every thin down to one cake. Now if I get paranoid I can throw that sucka away quick LOL. Any way I PMed you, Maybe we can get together, it's hard to find a true mycologist down here in the valley.

yeah you spent more then it's worth. You could have done every thing your self, CHEAPER and better. Don't be scared to try new things in this hobby, ones you do it, it's under your belt and you will forever know how to do that. Kits are OK but you should look in to doing EVERY thing your self first. just what I think.

it looks good. the only thing i'd worry about is contams.

but what they say about flushes and what not is all true.

every kit would be different though in terms of the flushes and amount of shrooms you get, but you will probobly get a hefty sum of shroomies out of that... maybe about 100 grams at best
