Perlite humidification works very good.
But you still have to have some fruting chamber..
They are a couple of "lowcost-fruting chamber" teks in the grow section.
The mushrooms do not have a strong odoeur...
They have a faint mushroomy smell...
I would suggest you to buy some Calcium Kloride(Cloride?) to use when drying the shrooms...Its a salt that atracts humudity in a room for example....just put the calsium cloride on a piece of paper inside of a box, then put another piece of paper (there should be a couple of layers of paper) on top of the CaCl...
Then just put the shrooms on the top layer of papers and let them dry in a dry, cold and dark space...
Its a very good way to dry the shrooms in about 24-48 hours, depending on the humidity of the room....

(that at least the drying tek. ive used and it works perfectly)

Hey Stranger,
You should first think of what method your going to use (PF TEK would be best for a newbie). You can use just about anything for a growing chamber, like a plastic tub (they run pretty cheap $10.00). As for the perlite, you can buy that at gardening store's, or W-mart, K-mart...ect. Make sure you get the fine to medium grade(looks like the size of grains of salt). Their are many people who have had great success with these things I have mentioned. Word of advice, use a P.cooker. You can lose everything you worked hard for to conta.
I haven't lost anything yet(knock on wood).
As for spore-prints...I got mine from sporckicks...there great on shipping time.

If your not living on the edge....Then your taking up to much space.

...and in answer to your final question, the Spore Lab near Vancouver is THE place for Canadian shroomers.

Stranger - If You are near Toronto - there is a place called THC (Toronto Hemp Company)
It sell Cubensis syringes for $30 - or 2 for $40. They are about 2 blocks south of bloor on Yonge st, above a Payless shoe store, east side of the street. I went there and bought some spores, just innoculated yesterday - I'll let you know how it turns out.

Is the spore lab in vancouver at HEmp B.C? or what is the name of the place and where abouts is it? i live very close to vancouver.. some guy at school told me u can goto a store named 'puff' and get a shroom started kit that comes with a spore print and everything..

also i don't have a pressure cooker.. if i were to put them in a boiling pot but with a tight lid.. whould that create a good enough humid enviroment to sterilize the jars?... also which is better the rice cakes or the ones that use Rye?, and should i put a layer of vermaculate on top of my cake to help prevent contamination?

The spore lab is not at Hemp B.C. The last time I checked, Hemp B.C. was forced out of business by the city and the cops. Just go to Captain Max Mushroom's link above and get a money order and mail it to him. As far as your growing questions, if you havn't grown before, just print off the Magic Mushroom Growers Guide under Grow/Find to the left and follow it to the letter. BTW, it is heat that sterilizes your jars when using a pot of water, not humidity. GOOD LUCK!

Holy shit do I feel good! Where am I?
