Mistakes of a Newbie...
    #553578 - 02/16/02 03:07 PM (15 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.

You will want the heat in to be around 80-84, because it's always a few degrees warmer in the jars. Sounds good though, good luck.

I am a newb too but I do know that one single spore in water can not be seen by the naked eye. If you saw some black shit in there it should work for you. As for the pink buffalo I don't know. I hope I helped

"Pink Buffalo" is a Thai strain, and information about it is here on this site, including pics. It is noted for it's "speedy" effect when ingested. These Thai strains often require different care including higher temps and humidity, though read up on this for exact instructions. They are not pink. :smile: Hope this helps!

Keep up the good work!!! And i mean everybody !!!
BTW, it's called Pink Buffalo because the first specimen collected was growing from cow/buffalo dung in Thailand, now guess wich color was the buffalo. Anyway, i consider it a subspec of Koh Samui strain but some say they're the same.

Peace,
MAIA

I have some of the Thai strain on its way to me. I wasn't aware that they needed higher temps and more humidity as Sillvyr states. Could someone lead me in the right direction??

hit me up whenever, my friend is experimenting with thai strains and they are not as hard to cultivate as you think, i just learned that cambodians like heat, and they are much better since i raised the temp in the terranium.

Well, I myself am also a newbie at home cultivation of PC shrooms. And i am in the middle of growing my own batch of Equidor strain. And as of right now it is day 9 and all 5 of my 1/2 pint jars are half way colonized and all i am using is a tupporware box w/ a lid and a plug in heat pad on top of it to keep the desired temp. Im growing mine on Vermac. and Brown rice flour. Im almost obsessed with growing these mofos. Which will make it ten times better when it is time for my crop to be harvisted. Good luck, one newbie to another.

lol thanks all, and thanks for the faq!! i read every bit of it, at least 5 times last night ( i felt silly asking a question, that i had known the answer to myself!) i didnt want to keep asking nonsence questions. any one who isnt sure, should start there first. or, like myself, even if you feel you have a good understanding, i found answers to a few other questions i had there too. not all questions are answered there ( they are still working on it), but a lot of basics are covered. lets not give newbie's a bad name, and try a little research ourselves. not just here, there are a million good sites an the web, and with a decent search engine, you can find at least 50% of your questions. lol one last thank-you. THANK YOU FOR NOT FLAMING ME!!!!! my "stupid" question wasnt just shrugged off, or made fun of.
i have a history of asking not so bright questions :-P so i wont promise i wont post another one, but before i post, i will try to find the answer myself.
peace all

First, Congrulations to all the newbies. I'm happy to see people getting involved in this hobbie which I personally enjoy so much. Also, what PinkFloyd said:

"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."

Is certainly true for me. It is all around fun, educational, spiritual, etc. and at the end you get to ENJOY the fruits of your labor (literally). Anyway, more to the point of my post. check out this link. It has been invaluble for me and offers information on all subjects...just click it and you will understand. Also, props to it's creator. What a great service you have done for us all. Peace to all. Shroomery.org rocks.
