Hallucinogenist's first attempt
    #4600275 - 08/30/05 08:20 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Alright, I know you all have seen me here asking questions (probably being a serious pain in the ass with some of them), but I figured that I would take the time out to make my own official thread. This is where I will be posting all questions, comments and updates on my first attempt to grow mushrooms.

In this attempt, I will be using Psilocybe Cubensis Equador. I purchased a spore-print from Shamanic Extracts. I currently have the following supplies

--1 P.C. Equador spore-print
--4 Sterile Syringes (ranging from 3cc to 12cc)
--1 10 oz. bag of Long Grain Brown Rice
--A bundle of sanitization supplies (gloves, masks, peroxide, alcohol, hand-sanitizer, etc.)
--1 copy of The Magic Mushroom Growing Guide based on PF-Tek.
--Several containers to use as substrate jars.

A very generous member of The Shroomery has been kind enough to send a gallon container of vermiculite my way. Hopefully, it should be here by Friday at the latest.

Tonight, I will grind up enough brown rice to use for 6-12 cakes and begin the process of constructing a container to allow colonization and fruiting of the mushrooms to take place. Does anyone have any advise on which method would be the best for a first-time harvester?

Also, where would be the best place to store my spores until it's time to mix up the inoculation solution?

I will post up more later.

Don't grind it up until right before you're gonna make your jars.

And I guess it's too late now, but I would have started with a pre-made spore syringe..  :shrug:

Oh and remember to let the spores hydrate for at least 24 hours before inoculation...


Colonized cakes smell like South Florida...

I can't sleep cuz the mexicans keep lighting their fireworks...
If ya don't want trouble, ya gots ta crumble...
