Yes we are all happy, but I think we good be more happy.

High and Hello,

Q: why do you react on this post if you don't wanna share your pressious info with us.

Q:without me having to take any potential risks of disclosing my designs....
This I really don not understand?

What if PF was thinking like that? Would you had your knowledge today? (No offence!!!)

But my compliments for your Hydra-pod it looks great and it seem to work asume 2.
But for just expirimenting a noisy few times I think it is some expensive. I am a newbie who started with casings and wanna try "the old fashioned way" also in different systems.

With love from Holland,
MeneerCactus

In reply to:

Learn how the world really work rather then lipping off when you don't know what your talking about!!!!




Take your own advice.

Why do you spend so much time running interferance for this NARC fellow?
Are you his alternate mouthpiece? Do you have financial interest in his business?

The NARC posts:
"Glad to see that you were able to get what you were looking for without me having to take any potential risks of disclosing my designs."

I laugh out loud.
I care not for the over priced 5 gallon bucket. I believe someone should post the plans of the miracle bucket for those that do. If you have the plans and are interested in seeing them released and for whatever reason the NARC frightens you with his threats of litigation and NARCARY then contact me.

Most of the parts for building the miracle bucket are easy to locate. The wonder dome is one of the more difficult to locate. If you look around you can find them online. Here is one source:

http://www.haxnicks.co.uk/

For those who are interested in something larger than the miracle bucket, there are larger systems available for comparable or less money than the miracle bucket, even from the hydro-shops.

all I can say is wow, people are stupid. Sometimes I start laughing to myself reading these responses Mycotek service gets. It's like people who grow mushrooms don't live in the real world or something; I don't know where they've gotten this utopian idea "businesses should give away shit for nothing". You see it everywhere on this forum, and while I don't give a rat's ass where they got it from (because it is obviously wrong); it does bother me that they constantly feel the need to express it. Any decently educated person should realize that rarely anything is free in life. And anyone who graduated high school and is not semi-retarded should know that without Mycotek sevice selling pods; there would be no pods. You would have no plans for anything. Some of you mushroom people think that the world owes you something, but it doesn't. And Mycotek service doesn't either. So fine if you can build your own pod and source the right materials for that dome and top tray, go right ahead. Spend 20 hours or so getting the right shit together, drilled out, glued; adjust the water volume, fresh air exchange rate......by the time you are done you will have wasted more time than the $180.00 is worth. To me, time is money, and money is time. Even if I could build a pod in 3 or 4 hours that somehow worked just as good as his (say I get extraordinarily lucky, no say I get help from god, a miracle); it still wouldn't be worth my time. My spare time is valuable, just like money. Oppurtunity costs? This is what an innovative yet tiny company like Hydrapod struggles with every day. This is his job man (and not his only one); and it rightfully should be. I for one would be very pissed (a hundred other pod and multi-pod owners I'm sure would agree) if people like you stole all of his ideas, eventually running him out of business and truly back to doing this only as a hobby. You don't realize it but this is what it seems like you all want. Why are you people trying to drive out a great new talent? If you people start getting all of his products for free then he will soon close his business I imagine (especially if there are teks n shit, but that will soon be illegal); and then we'd get none of the benefit of his research and technology, because you know he's getting the patents for both the pod and the revolutionary new coconut strate he's developed. Me, and whole lot of other people with the money to buy the best (by far, there really is no quality competitor), most compact grower would be very, very pissed. I mean, have you seen the fruits that FIRST TIME growers are getting out of the pods? You all should be kissing his ass every chance you get, if you knew what was good for you. Casings? cmon, that's for hillbillies or commercial growers. Personally? I think its ridiculous to have trays of cased myc sitting around the house stinking up the place. Shit I'd rather buy shrooms any day, not worth the trouble. Nice soggy perlite or vermiculite over cakes sitting for a couple of weeks? Spray it twice a day? If you're a commercial grower or growing strains that don't grow on cakes then fine, but otherwise that's for suckers. I don't have the time, like I said before, my time is worth money. I just wish there were more people like me on this forum, people who maybe work hard for a living, but like to play and party hard too!! People who want the best, because that is what the pod is right now; until something better comes along. I've been so impressed with my 1st pod that I've bought 1 more, and will eventully have 4 in a matter of a few weeks. I mean it's crazy, you could probably fit 4 or 5 of these things in the bottom of a reasonably sized closet, and it's totally automated. You don't have to do anything except set it up and pick mushrooms. I think more of you people would go out and get one if you realized how good these things work, especially beginners who would otherwise probably get weak fruits out of a homemade terr, especially their first few tries. And that right there is enough to say forget it for most people, I'm sure. Especially with all that work involved in building your cardboard box and spraying twice a day. I challenge people to buy one, hell ask him for a deal on one if you somehow don't think it's quite worth it. I'm sure he'd love to get some into the hands of the skeptics, because that really is the only obstacle. This thing works extremely well, it is at the very least the future of low scale mushroom growing; but I wouldn't be suprised if you see it used very well for some small to medium growers too eventually, ones that focus on quality of fruits rather than yield. Connoisseur growers, just like with bud. Anyways, I'm a bit high and rambling, all I can say is get a Hydrapod if you want to get into shrooms but don't have a whole lot of time, you will get great shrooms with little to no effort past prepping the jars. Hell get the presterilized bags of substrate too and you're set, hardly any work at all !!!! Sure it takes money now, but in soon enough time you'll be getting a very nice payback!!!! It's well worth it, I can testify to that!!!!

p.s. If you do get a pod check out the materials and parts, they are actually a very large chunk of the retail price if you look them all up........ and he offers a lifetime warranty over and above all the manufacturers warranties (1-3 years I think?) on the whole thing, bumper to bumper for life? Can you beat that with a stick? I don't think so!!!!

Kind part of your post was OK the rest utter bullshit. Nothing wrong with a business making a profit. I agree. However you deserve a AssHumper10K juicing for stating cakes are better than casings and the hillbilly bullshit. You need to pull your nose out of Mcmans ass and do some more studying. I m sure you re gonna get called to the carpet for that part of the post. Its idiotic.

High All,

A few things I still don't get over here. I am for you guys maybe a newbie and maybe I am. But 1 thing I have seen many times on this bulletinboard is people loosing their temper. Starting wars of words. I also have seen the last month, surfing on this site, that it seem to be the same people who are involved in this word wars.

Then as it seems those party have their own clan which involves right away in de war of the words.

Why, why, why? Isn't their war enough, enough violance, etc. Or can it come as a result of cultural differences. That we don't understand each other.

And it is so easy to get involved, like it is easier to react in a negative order than reacting in a more peacefull mindset.

But I still don't understand the reaction of M, you don't have to react on stuff, you don't even have to read it. What is your motivation when you reply on things as above and the only information given is how "important (to the pod)" you are.

Please don't reply if it is loaded with negativity.

With love from Holland

Make drugs not war,

MeneerCactus

i think part og the problem with these poeople that think the pods are a rip-off got used to EVERYTHING on the internet being free... those times have changed, buisnesses learned that by giving away products they go out of buisness. You HAVE GOT to make a profit or you go out, end of story. Im not all that new to growing, ive been growing for over 6 months, but have yet to get any great yeilds. Also some people think that since they have all this time to collect parts, scheme and build a pod everyone should have this large ammount of time, all i can say to this is wait till your in the real world and have to work every single stinkin day, the last thing you wanna do when you get a couple free hours is do some more work even if it is your hobby. I'm in no way an advanced grower, only been trying for 6 months with far from impressive yeilds with a home made terr. if i would have known that it would be so hard to maintain temps in my house i would have saved MY time and bought one of these, hell i still might.

Well, I don't grow mushroom for a living so, can't comment further on what I said about casings I've never tried them. Probably never will, for the very reasons I explained. More power to you if you like to sell a bunch of shrooms, that's definitely the way to go for yield. But I stand behind what I said about casings versus the pod for beginners, especially for those who aren't commercial growers and are growing mostly for personal use (friends and shit included of course). Did I ever say cakes are better than casing? I don't think so, sorry if I did. I was trying to say that they were better for non-commercial growers and beginners. I think you read me wrong there, there is really no way that I would plainly say that cakes are better than casing. I know that isn't true, though it really isn't false either. Each has it's obvious advantages and disadvantages.

Well boss, you say you don't need a lot of mushrooms because your not selling them, then why are you going to have 4 pods? Hell you could get enough mushrooms to keep you and all your friends content for 6 or 7 months if you spend $40 or so more and get a DB kit. You don't need to sell shit, just store them properly. Oh, and I've never in my growing experience had a casing "stinking up the place".....and for the amounts you get, casings are more compact then cakes....one small casing can produce the same or more then 4 or 5 cakes that will take up twice the space..............

Fully automated terrariums can be set up in a matter of a few hours straight or if spread it out you could work 15-20 mins a day and get it done in a couple of weeks. These terrariums can produce picture perfect shrooms.....Hell you don't even need to stray from your prescious Mcman's side, he's got plenty of plans for a terr like this.

Oh by the way, I for one know how it feels to be limited on time.....I work....I am a full time college student.....and I gotta find time somewhere in there to see my girl and my family. I'm sure many people in the community are very greatful towards Mcman(mycotek), he has come up with many great ideals that help us all to further this hobby in our own homes....and there are others that aren't.......but almost all of us know that time is money and we know how hard we have worked for the little money that we make so we don't feel that ponying up that kind of dough for a bucket is justifiable when we can get more for our money with other systems that may not produce pretty mushrooms...but your gonna eat them any way...they all come out the same in the end.

This post was not meant to flame Mcman or the hydro-pod.....I think it is a nice system for true to life mushroom development.....this was meant to inform other parties that there are reasons people don't like the pod, its not just blind hatred toward Mcman.

Oh and for all you looking to build a pod....those domes aren't really that hard to find......many large gardening catalog companies sell them for 3-8 dollars a peice depending on the company and the size of the dome. They are for warming the soil for early outdoor transplants. Also small water pumps can be bought on e-bay brand new for 10-25 dollars depending on output and how good you are at bidding.

Gent, I don't think his nose is really in anyone's ass. I've pretty much kept quiet about the pod lately cause I felt like mycotek was acting like sort of an asshole with the sue me, sue you bit and deserved a match between his toes. For the record, I stand by my prior statement that "Mcman" is the friggen Thomas Edison of the shroom world (Yeah Edision had his loving traits too). The pod kicks ass, pal.

I think the hydra-pod is kind of cool. It seems like a smart design. I just don't have enough money to burn on a bucket. I'm the type of person who would rather do something myself. That's part of the fun. I could care less if Myco-tek gives away his plans or not. There are others out there. I'm just sickened by his shameless promotion. It seems like every other sentence has to relate to the hydra-pod and/or how some tek won't work unless it involves the hydra-pod. I'm sick of hearing about the thing. Now let's talk about growing already.

Talking to yourself?

I see that as I typed this you edited the part of your post about people hateing you for being an all knowing genius, and wanting to sponge your designs like ungreatfull bastards, and refuseing to grovel at your feet and worship the mushroom messiah McNARC.

I intended to respond to your previous post. As you edited your post, I will respond to the one that is displayed as I type.

"...those dome lids that you just linked to are useless for anyone trying to build a pod-like growing device. None of those domes will come close to fitting a standard 5 gallon bucket."

BULLSHIT.
