  1. Hello all, My friend and I are going to start growing soon! I've decided to use the dunk and roll method with a mono tub using brown rice flour, vermiculite & perlite substrate, & will later try fruiting once I'm more experienced (it seems easier to mess up, but I obviously do not know). If any of you have advice for bigger yield, let me know! This site isn't the easiest to navigate, so I hope I'm making this post correctly. Also, does anyone know where to get decent spores from? I'm looking for some golden teacher, & a more potent strain perhaps, that's easy for a newbie such as I to grow. I will hopefully get this altogether within a month, & I'm just so excited! I still have a few things to buy & complete the set up. Feel free to "add" me on here! I will be documenting the progress & blog the mistakes I make so other newbies could learn from me. I want to reach the stars in meditation, and curb a few disorders I suffer from with the medicine. I'm also just curious, what other hobbies do you all enjoy? I also love herping (snakes) & going to arcades.
  2. First Try

    What up group. I’ve been wanting to grow for 15 years and finally in the right place!! Everything in life is in order. I did months of research before I actually ordered my spore syringe, and here I am today. Thank you all for the massive amount of info and the open arms to teach. Inoc. Date is 11/20/18. The wife and I are beyond excited to microcose regularly and see how, and if it improves our quality of life together even more than it’s been elevated on our own. I’ll keep posting pics, updates, and I’m sure a million more questions sorry.... This has been one of the most fulfilling hobbies I’ve tried.... and I’m not even at the finish line yet! More to come... Thanks..
  3. I’m new to growing and was wondering if anyone has any tips? Or advice to learn from mistakes?
  4. Hello all, Been wanting to grow mushrooms for a while and finally started reading and researching this past week. I've decided i'm going to try the 6 quart dub tub method to begin with the B+ Can't wait to mess up and ask for help !
  5. New around this forum

    Hello all. I am new to this forum & would like to thank everyone for the wealth of information. I'm starting another project and would love to log it & get helpful advice.
  6. I was hoping for some clarification on a few things. Noob questions ahead! I got a all in one growing bag. It has manure, straw, and ryeberries. Once it is inoculated, it needs to be put in a dark place for a while? Does the dark place need lots of air ventilation or can I put it in a drawer or something? If I get a reptile heating pad to keep the temperature steady, what is recommended temp to set it at? I read somewhere that growth of spores creates heat itself? Would it be better to keep everything in the bag once it is all colonized? Or is it better to move it into a tub? What would the difference in results be? I was studying the REZ effect tek, would I follow those steps if I transferred it into a tub?
  7. Hello! New guy here.

    Hello. FNG here. Trying BRF cakes. Hope to learn the best details.
  8. Hello, New guy here!

    Hello, I'm new to this whole subject of mushrooms. I'm here to get to know all of you, and about this hobby.
  9. Hi! I'm KUSH!

    Hello! I'm new to shroomology. I've been raising oysters for about 5 months now and want to eventually get into the study of actives. ALSO THANK YOU @1nickthegreek for telling me to join and helping me with this intro!
  10. Hi!

    Hey guys and gals, I'm new here and I like mushrooms (especially drawing them and the way they look) so I just wanted to say hi and I'm looking forward to talking to you all! Cheers!
  11. Hi all!

    Hey everyone, I've been lurking around for a bit now. Unfortunately I'm currently in California and I can't get spores to test at the moment but I'm moving soon and planning. I'm thinking of trying a zombie tub first off with penis envy. The supplies won't be difficult to get except the spore syringe. It seems the sponsored vendor here is out of everything! (Seems they stopped selling for a bit) I'm currently looking for a vendor that i can trust.I'm sure ill find one in the month or so it'll take for my move. Anyway... Hi all! Thank you for the info you have contributed here! I've enjoyed reading it so much! I can't wait to start my first test out.
  12. Hello All! :)

    Hello everyone! It's a pleasure being here amongst you all. I was invited by Samwise, so I would also like to thank him for directing me here. My interest is primarily in the exploratory, healing, and personal development benefits that may come from working with the mushroom as part of a larger spiritual/personal practice. I am a graduate level mental health practitioner and hope to see these wonderful fungi be used to help people grow, prosper, and find joy in their lives. Thank you again and looking forward to learning so much here with you all! Blessings, InnerExplorer
  13. Hi everyone. Have been reading info from this group for about a month, non-stop. It looks like an awesome group of people to be my teachers and one day be my team mates. I ordered some syringes, made a monotub, made some tyvek ez-lids, and last night soaked some bird seed. Today I'm gonna pc and inoculate in the morning. Wish me luck. Brad
  14. Hi, everyone. Been lurking and soaking up info for a couple of weeks now. Finally created an account. This seems like a great community with helpful people. Never grown mushrooms before in my life and am taking the plunge. Am gonna keep a grow log with what I'm doing and I'll ask questions along the way. Hopefully this will help other newbies along the way and will help me, too. Ordered a syringe of Golden Teacher (GT) and it arrived in the mail today. I also ordered a mushroom grow kit bag which arrived in the mail today. Also got some quart jars and made SHIP lids for them using Mushroom Zombie's (MZ's) video. Got a bag of wild bird seed (WBS) and a 22-qt pressure cooker (PC) on the way. I built Str0be's glovebox. I also built the tub-in-tub incubator following MZ's instructions. I just finished making 5 quart jars with self-healing injection port (SHIP) lids according to MZ's video. Here's the plan: - Tomorrow will innoculate the mushroom grow kit bag with 1cc of GT in the glovebox. Will then place the grow kit in the incubator. - PC should arrive day after tomorrow. I'll prep the WBS using MZ's No Fail WBS Tek video method. I'll then innoculate 5 quart jars of WBS in the glovebox and place them in the incubator along with the grow kit bag. I'm also going to prep and innoculate some liquid culture (LC) following MZ's video. - So, that 1 syringe will (hopefully) innoculate 1 grow kit bag, 5 quart jars, and some LC jars. Hopefully I can make that syringe last long (maybe indefinitely) with this, lol. - I'll probably try fruiting the grow kit bag right in the bag. For the grain jars I'm gonna follow the zombie tub tek. - This may seem ambiitious for a first-timer now that I'm typing it all up, but I'm curious to learn all these techniques so I figured why not give it a try. Questions I have: - How long will WBS jars "keep" after prepping them. For example, can I prep some extra WBS quart jars while my LC incubates and then innoculate the jars at a later time? If so, how long will they keep? And how should I store them? - What's a good procedure or tek for the zombie tubs to keep them at the proper temperature and light conditions? The incubator's made with opaque totes so I'm thinking I can't keep them there because they'll be in the dark. The location where they zombie tubs will be gets pretty cold - down to 55* F, so I'll have to find some way to warm the air around them while still getting ambien light. Any ideas or tek anyone can point me to? Thanks again to everyone that's posted stuff. It's helped me feel comfortable about jumping right in and even though I'm gonna make mistakes along the way I appreciate having other people here who I've seen helping people out.
  15. Help. First grow, stalled in FC

    Hey I have below attach a couple pics of my grows, I'm pretty sure the second, started at a later period is showing hypnal knots already, the first has been in the FC for 6 days, does it look okay? mist and fan 3x a day, 12hr light and it is the 6qt dub tub method, followed every step. The first two pics are the same tub
  16. Hey all. Looking to learn where I can, and share where it fits. Feels good to be back part of a lively omc. Tav
  17. Hello there

    Hello everyone I'm about to start my first grow... I've read so much on ology my brain is mush:P... I Will be attempting 1 mono tub (I know it's not beginner tek but I think I have an understanding of what needs to happen to succeed) Any tips that one might overlook would be helpful Can't wait to share more with the community!
  18. Well I'll start with hello everyone, I'm twixx. I'm getting ready to start my mycology career within the month. I'm very information and research oriented and don't see any issues with growing. I've grown the shake and store mushie bags before as well as some aero and hydro bud setups. I'm not new to cultivation or cleanliness procedures. I'm a shroom enthusiast and feel this will become my new hobby as I share a duplex and can't run my bud setup here. So I'm going to do a PF tek using BRF and vermiculite. Starting out with mist and fan til I get my first set of spore prints and then I'll alter my setup to be more autonomous. I'm getting Cambodian, amazonian, and penis envy(favorite strain). Going to start with the Amazonian. My only real question at this point is for my second batch after I get prints and colonize them. In the setups I've looked at I see differing views. Should I use a ultrasonic humidifier, a air pump and aerator stone or can I keep the RH high enough without those. The setup will be a mono tub. Thanks For any responses and input. Also I've done lots of research and will continue to do so any leads and Info is welcomed and appreciated
