Mistakes of a Newbie...
    #553571 - 02/16/02 02:56 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

Hello to all of you. I have made a couple of posts...Now its time to summarize my short existence here. Have a small history years ago with recreational shrooms. Several years ago found shrooms on the net and discovered that people were growing themselves. Didn't have the time/money/or wife that would tolerate it. Dumped the wife, which gave me the time and money back! Christmas time rediscovered a few sites...(NOT THE ONES HERE)
Not knowing any better, I placed an order with ShamonShop.net. They said that the "kit" would arrive in about 2 weeks, and they would be giving me a tracking # within a week. 2 weeks later, after no tracking # (and after finding this site and realizing how stupid I was) I called them. Sounded like some guy answering his own phone...told me that "the warehouse" was behind. Couple of posts here, and found out that some of the venders here knew this guy...and he was some kind of reseller. My package did finally get here 2 days ago, sent from STP. Shamonshop has since dropped the kit I bought from their site. Some of you tried to warn me...(too late) and you were all right. The "Kit" had 3 Rubbermaid containers, a aquarium heater, a Ziploc freezer bag of soil/verm mix, another freezer bag of straight verm, an ACE spray bottle, rubbing alcohol, peroxide, 12 1/2 pint jars with ??? in them (can't really tell...I know there's verm in them) and a clear 12 cc syringe of B+ (hopefully). The soil was touted on their site to last a year?yeah right, it looks like a crappy mix anyway. They also say to microwave the soil?(I?ll be using my new PC!) All in all...about $60-80 worth of stuff. (200% markup of what I paid). The only good thing I can say about the kit is the 2 containers 1 inside the other w/ water and the heater make a good incubation chamber. The ?grow? container has a 3? hepa filter half way up the side?I don?t think this will be sufficient for gas exchange?(But, I don?t know anything other than what I?ve read here and other places) I got everything started the other night and now have to learn patience?(I would be easier if I trusted Whoever made that syringe and those jars) While I was waiting for the kit?and after discovering this site?I went off the deep end. Found a local farm/feed store and bought a lot the stuff used in the different TEKS here, a PC, pint and ? pint jars, even a really good (low/no heat dehydrator) NO?I DO NOT INTEND TO DISTRIBUTE, (except giving away to good friends) This is all for personal use and I just really want to have fun with this on my own. At first it was about the trip?now it?s moved past that and I think I will get as much or more out of the cultivation. I have a pending order with Ryche for some different strains, and just contacted FSR today. Well, so much for my introduction?It is nice to meet all of you, and I will pass on all of my mistakes/successes as well as my experiences with the various venders so we can all get better I will be posting pics (in that forum) as soon as I see anything happening. Sorry if any of my prior posts were really stupid (Including the one asking Ryche for a price break, his prices are very fair?I shouldn?t post after drinking!)? thanks for your patience with me.

it always pays to shop around a little first, ay my freind?

It sickens me to hear about the cost of things at STP...fucking rediculous. Sure vendors around here make some profit, but in general i think that what we pay for a print or syringe around here is very cheap, especially when you consider that it only takes one syringe to be totally self sufficient in that strain.

I SEE GROWTH...GROWTH I TELL YOU!!!! 1ST EVER GROWTH!!! TODAY IS A VERY GOOD DAY...2 1/2 DAYS SINCE INNOC. AND ITS WORKING! Too small to post pics yet, but enough to make my day/week/month! Had to lower the temp of the inc chamber...heard something about the mycellium creating its own heat...temp shot up to 89. Trying to stabilize at 86.

I know this is ot...the wrong forum, but I thought I would share my joy w/ all of you that have helped me. Ralph, thanks for replying to my e-mail...you will hear from me very shortly
