OK it shall be my first time attempting to grow. It is going to be a joint effort with my father. He like me has never grown before. The process he thought of did not make much sence to me. It seems to easy. And by what I have read at the lovely shroomery I am unaware if it would work. So I have come here to ask opinions and suggestions.
Since we live in Wisconsin(and just a couple yards from some cows) we are going to gather some cow shit and put it in a plastic bag. From there we are going to put the poo in a container and set it in the garage. We are going to get a space heater and place it near the shit. We are going to have a light aswell. From there he says if we just let it sit it should just grow. Does that sound right? Or am I just stupid? If I am stupid can you maybe tell me a couple other things I should do or whatever?
Thank You much

Well unless you just forgot to metion it, you are missing one very important thing, spores. If you want to assure some fruits, follow the PF tek in the Grow/Find section to begin with. It's easy.

hum... I doubt anything would grow at all and what might would probably be far from what you are shooting for. I would advise alittle more research. I am never one to say you have to do it the way a "tek" says but there are some.... conceptuals that you need to keep in mind. One being there need to be spores present to produce shrooms and two being clean if not sterile is good.

Nah man you will just have heated shit. Basically theres 3 ways to grow shrooms. Pf-tek, Grain, and agar. I would start with the pf teck as its extremely simple and you should get enough for you and your dad no matter how bad you mess up.Heres the link http://www.fungifun.org/pf/. Click "Pf tek for simple minds"

if you live right next to some cow pastures why not just hunt for mushrooms?
its alot cooler, you get to wear an orange vest, and carry around a shotgun...

Um....Just so you know if you get caught with drugs and a gun i believe you get to go to prison for five years. Maybe thats not right, but i know they are a lot less lenient(sp?).

EDIT: I'm an idiot i just got the joke about hunting. no sleep for 48 hours makes me a little slow.

I don't think that there are too many active mushrooms that grow in cow pastures in wisconsin, especially at this time of year.

Lenin, My advice, do the PF tek. Then once you get that down, you can moooo oove (get it moo, like the cow, ok ok, i know I'm dumb) over to bulk substrate, since you got a shitload of, well shit at your disposal.

Damn z@z, get some sleep.
