Well if your a newbie and have never had any results start with PF and work your way up to bulk substrates. Use the cultivation FAQ here @ the shroomery as well.

It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes.

If you go out into a pasture and collect a grocery bag or so full of really old poo, thats all dry and crumbly, you'll find it doesnt smell any more than any other mushroom substrates... I've found that pressure cooking rye smells alot more than pasteurizing poo.

You might want to take heed of TPS's advice, the seizure laws are really harsh if you get busted, they can take your parents home, even if they weren't aware of your activities. Be careful and good luck.

just do the PF tek.. then make some simple casings with meatloaf tins, it's very easy. I'd recommend the 50/50 + casing tek with a bottom layer of perlite. the perlite on the bottom really does make a differnce, I have tried that, 50/50 + on the bottom and straight verm on the bottom, the perlite is the way to go.

consult the cultivation FAQ for more info on casings. it's very easy and newbie friendly. you don't even need an additional source of humidity, just use an 18 gallon rubbermaid and mist the sides once a day. make sure your casing layer stays moist too.

If you are going to grow with your parents do it because of the research type methods I would suggest you start with legal edible mushrooms and then maybe do a few cakes of psilocybes after a little while. Heaven forbid they may consume mushrooms that you actually grew that are hallucinogenic but if you're careful you will learn a lot and you will be able to carry out your growth in a much more positive no paranoia environment.

Really, I mean the fun of growing is really what its about. Every single person who has grown or is growing understands that the trip is a seperate issue to the joy felt growing.

Hey!! There aren't any druggies here! Stop BSing us. If you were just studying them, why not grow legal ones? These guys are rite, getting busted wont only ruin your life, but your parents also. They can even charge your parents with drug manufactre! In my state at least. "I did it for research" won't hold up in court. Be careful, and cover your ass.

i know people who are totally against the use of mushrooms for human consumption and grow them as a hobby and distribute them for free. It's called sharing the wealth :smile:

I find it offensive that he comes on this board, and to put it bluntly, refers to all of us who do consume the food of the gods, to be a druggie.

Why not get your parents involved in growing the many wonderful culinary and medicinal mushrooms that are available.  You can get as complicated as you want, isolate strains from the mountains around you.  Buy a book that helps you identify mushrooms in the wilderness.  If you get your parents involved it might help you grow closer to them.  Then they wont be so worried about your constant Play Station playing, Chatroom typing, and masturbating all the time.  Why not just go upstairs right now and give them both a big hug and tell them youll do better in school next semester...  Just kidding... hey take it one step at a time, everyone here started with the most basic growing techniques and then from experience innovated and elaborated.  Good luck sport! :laugh:
