good beginning strain?
    #4656986 - 09/13/05 10:40 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I was thinking B+, everyone says thats a good place to start. Though i havent read at all on the potentcy of it. Any one know who it ranks? Or if there is a better strain to start with?

I went with golden teacher for my first strain. They're doing nicely, pics will be up soon hopefully. But I chose them cause of the reputation and the feeling i got from using them. B+ is a common it seems for starters, as is GT, and there are a few others. Good luck man!

yea, i was reading through spores101, but they dont give descriptions of "effects", does golden teacher grow pretty easy, I need something durable, cuase its going to be done covertly, in a closet or something

B+ is a good strain to start with.  Hearty strain, resistant to a fair amount of screw-ups.  The potency is good, but its a wee bit less than most strains.  Still a good strain though.

Good luck on your grow.  :smile:

Throw darts and pick a strain. Most cubes are about the same regardless of what their description says on a website. Yes some may be more visual and some may be more body high, but overall they are about the same IMO. The key to getting the most potency out of any cube is the substrate. H/poo grown shrooms will blow away PF tek grown shrooms in potency any day, regardless of the strain. B+ is good. You will most likely try many, many strains if you really get into this hobby anyway.

I'm working on my first grow right now, and I read through a lot of posts about which is a really friendly strain for new growers. I settled on B+ because it had a rep for being forgiving and a hardy strain. Rather than work on speed, potency, yield, etc... I'd rather learn the basics with a strain I can afford to make a few mistakes with and learn proper methods, then improve on them, but that's just my $.02

I grew Lipa Yai my first time - very potent, took 20 grams wet and it blew my socks off all night long. A cube is a cube is a cube is the general philosophy however.

I started with Thai Pink Buffaloes. Very fast colonizer. Thats what I continue to use today because I can't get spores legally.

The world is like a ride in an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it, you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly coloured and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question, is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, "Hey - don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride... And we... kill those people.

what about taking a PF cake and cutting it like you would a pineapple to increase surface area, would that work?

P.S. If you really can't decide why don't you do this:
Send a SASE to the Free Spore Ring nearest you and tell them you want one spore print and that you're a beginner. They'll choose for you and that's what makes this geeewd: you roll the dice and the gods end their roll.  Part of cultivating mushrooms is to tend to something and not control ever detail, but to rear it.

Some of my favorites are Lipa Yai, Mazatepec, Texans, and B+. I've never found one strain easier then another though, at least in my experience so far.
