Absolute cheapest method of growing good shrooms?
    #7626869 - 11/12/07 07:26 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Hey people.

I've been thinking about growing mushrooms lately, and I was wondering about what ABSOLUTE CHEAPEST materials I would need to grow some decent batches of decent mushrooms.

Also, would buying all of the materials, plus spores off the internet be dodgy in any way? If so, Should I purchase only the spores, and buy the other materials somewhere else?

Also, once the veils on my first batch have popped, is it really THAT USEFUL to take spore prints? [I know how to do this, it's just fucking time consuming.

One last thing, would gloves be useful? Also, I have no ventilation hood to work under... Is it ok if I just lysol what I am wearing, put on gloves that have been lysol'd, and just work on them under a plastic cover of some sort.

P.S: Is it K if I grow them in my closet? Would that be a bad idea due to dust and stuff? [I can clean it thoroughly, if that would be useful.

The only thing that you may have to buy at the web and not walmart is spores. All else you can get here and there an improvise.

Going from how cheap can I do it to veils breaking? You are optimistic. Taking spore prints is like saving watermelon seeds. Exactly the same damn thing!

It's ok with me where ever you grow them. Just makes sure they have the proper temps, and humidity.

would eating a bunch of spores and rye berries...then saving all your poo in a bucket...misting and fanning it occasionally work?

you would have better luck feeding it to a cow and following the cow with a bucket for a day or two.

try using oats
or hominy
instead of the orthodox PF cakes

with oats you can just substitute the oats for the brown rice flour using the same PF tek formula

with hominy
no vermiculture or any other additive ingredient is needed
just strain the hominy, pc or boil, then inoculate

hominy and oats are a lot cheaper than brown rice
and when using hominy, no purchase of verm is needed

since when is spore printing time consuming?
you pick them, cut the head off and place them on tin foil. leave it for a day then slip the foil in a ziplock bag.
and if your going cheap then ya, absolutely necessary if you plan growing more!

gloves arent needed if you wash your hands and use some GermX usualy.

id say PFtek (rice and verm are cheap) or if you want to be cheaper just innoc whole grains of brown rice no verm. dont make any incubator, as long as your house is regularly between 70-80 your fine .
then birth into a 2 liter coke bottle or gallon milk jug with perlite on the bottom.

Ugh, people who have no regard for mycology at all and just want the quickest, fastest way to get more shrooms just to consume. Congrats OP, you are that guy.

I can definatly say even if you could think of the cheapest way to grow them with out actually trying it our first more than likely you will waist countless dollars just trying to get your first few off the ground. You would have to be pretty damn lucky to grow a decent amount with out forking over your wallet a couple times in the process.

Some of the people on this website have huge superiority egos.

Growing mushrooms is very simple. Here are some videos to get you started.

I don’t like this method but if you cant afford a PC than it’s right up your alley.

Cheap and effective.

I wasn't saying that he shouldn't try it out buy no means. Anybody that puts there time into would get results of course but I'm just saying when you want qty, it's kinda hard to do when you first start. I do believe it is fairly easy to grow mushrooms but the average person will usually fail at bulk a few times before getting really good results. By all means if it something you want to do, do it, and who knows maybe you'll get lucky and your first time you'll grow a whole mess of shrooms but I just think most people will have a little trial and error. Persistance and patience is key!

Necessities.
Verm- 12 quarts ~ $8.00
BRF- 1lb ~ $2.00
Perlite- 12 quarts $8.00
hpoo- Free.
Spores- $10-$18
Karo and LME- $5.00
Silicone- $2.00
Rubbermaid- $3.00 used from thrift store
Step 1. Gather supplies
Step 2. Do a a few LC's with your syringe.
Step 3. PF-TEK
Step 4. Boil-Sterilize PF-Tek jars.
Step 5. Inoculate Jars with LC.
Step 6. Incubate
Step 7. Spawn Cakes to Hpoo.
Step 7.5. Perlite + H20 + terrarium + Trays
Step 8. Fruit.
Step 9. ????
Step 10. PROFIT!!!!

There, a 3 minute guide. Basically, you save your $$$ by taking advantage of unlimited inoculant via LC, saving you $$ on expensive syringes. Spawning to free hpoo(walk behind a horse for 3 minutes) will increase your yields.
