A littlt Help.
    #603982 - 04/10/02 04:52 AM (15 years, 8 months ago)

I'm looking to purchase an entire set-up. I've seen a few kits for sale at different sites. However, I want advice from the pro's. You Guys! Where should I go? Best Kits? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Your better off making your own set up.

If you want a maintance free set up....buy a hydra-pod.
Click here to check out the pod

I have 3 fruiting chambers and a pod...for cakes.
And a new setup for casings. << a Annovator...lolz

Laterz, Road

DON'T buy a kit!

Incubation Chamber:
Make one like this:

PM for details.

Fruiting chamber:
For cost effectiveness you cant beat making one yourself.
For taking out all the guesswork and getting it right the first time it's hard to beat a Hydra-Pod.
Like Roadkill I have both.

You will need lots of other things like jars, substrate material, spore prints and syringes or spore syringes (already made up, good for a newbie) Ect.. Ect.. Ect.

How you do it really depends on how much $$ you have to play with.

Again.... DON'T buy a kit!

Thanks again for the "as always" spot on advice Road! You are the Man!!!

I'd go with building your own, definitely. Just poke around the forums here, look at pictures, steal other people's ideas, and keep it simple, and you'll have no trouble at all :smile:

I haven't started my first real grow yet, but i'm well on my way. Got my mycobags incubating now (thanks sporeworks!), and in the meantime I've designed and built a really kickass fruiting chamber from all the stuff i've read. Pics to come when I get my digital camera soon, and if the ventilation system I designed works as well as I think it will, I'm gonna write a tek for it.

But anyway, my point is, I've managed to build an incubator that stays around 85F constantly for $20, and a fruiting chamber that stays humid and automatically circulates it's air supply for $60. If I can do it, anyone can, and save loads of money on it too! 


There once was a bud named BC
He grew on a seven foot tree
Then one day I plucked him
To roll him and smoke him
And now I can barely see!
