Cambodians are a good strain.
EQ's and B+'s are good strains too for the beginner.
Keepers Creeper is a fantastic strain....and will be seen alot more of soon.
Probably the fastest colonizer I have seen out of 16 strains.

I suggest you try the PF Tek to start with.
The most important part of this hobby is learning!
Read as much as you can....then ask questions.
PF TEK
If you follow the PF Tek to a "T" you will have success.

Also read these:

Ultimate Mycodirectory v4.0

how much did I spend ?
well.....I think it was around $250.00
and I still use most of my beginning stuff..... I expanded a few things since.
now I'd have to say that I have $700.00 in equiptment.

PF tek style cakes make between 0 to 6 dried grams each...on average.
I had 36 PF cakes....5 to 7 dried grams each.... I did very well.
Anything over 6 dried grams is really good off cakes.

Good luck!

In reply to:

Keepers Creeper is a fantastic strain



Did price=potency?

Actually, it's very easy to isolate a super producing sclerotia strain.

Follow the strain isolation technique on Let's Grow Mushrooms, and then select sectors early which are brown in color.  By the second or third transfer, you'll see stones developing, and this is only about 1 month after the original swipe of spores on agar.

Now, take each stone and move it to a new dish.  Soon, the mycelium will grow out and you'll see fresh stones developing, and if they're good strains, the sclerotia is forming long before the mycelium reaches the edge of the plate.  Pick strains which form four or five stones within two weeks and use these for your grain masters.

Oh, I know you didn't pay full price for it.

Have you tried any other STP strains?
