Hi! I'm a new member just dropping in to introduce myself. I've got a nice summer stretch ahead of me which means I finally have time to expand my gardening skills. I'm brand new to this type of growing though, so I'm excited to learn and happy to be here!

PS, I just read the Declaration of Contribution and I think it's awesome. High five to the authors, I'm handwriting it into my log as we speak.

Hello my fellow fungi fanatics I'm new here but not to this hobby or other dedicated sites. I'm looking forward to meeting new ppl and experiencing new ideas and growing tek's. So until I can actually post immediate dialogue good luck with all your shrooms endeavors.

 

 

Greetings all,

 

As the username suggests... I have no idea what I am doing!  But I am here to learn.  I've recently learned of the myriad of benefits associated with Psilocybin mushrooms.  With the recent decriminalization that's taken place in a few US cities, I considering attempting to grow them.  I am very ignorant right now, but will attempt to educate myself prior to attempting this (and prior to asking questions!).  Thanks for all who have contributed to making it possible to educate myself.

the PF Tek is the easiest way to get started, we usually suggest starting there for your first grow. You can get a lot more mush though with coir or manure based sub and whole grain.

Thanks...does it much matter wich strain i start with? Was gonna start with b plus but the site im looking at is out of stock. Is AA plus good for a first timer? Does it even matter?
Appreciate the quick response here thank you

AA+ is highly recomemnded. There are a few that are much easier than others, AA+ is a great strain to start with. GT is another of the easy growing strains, with good potency.

Most people will tell you this is a bad idea. I would say go for it, but use a fan. I used a reptile heating pad under a pieces of ceramic tile for my first grow, and my spare room was the same temperature range as your closet. As long as you keep a fan on the hot spot to dissipate the heat you should be fine. You may want to put some kind of spacer between the tub and the heating pad to keep it from getting too hot. Dialling in your temps is the most critical part of colonization, so do you're best to get it right.

You're just on the edge of cool. If its a small closet, a heating in there with the door closed will probably bring the temperature up enough without putting the tub directly on it. They'll colonize 68+ but cam be really slow

fruiting you want it cooler. And, don't leave that light on a whole lot. They only need the light to know which way to grow, maybe two hours a day, if even that, is plenty.

Probaly safe. Some like it hot. Set your heat pad up prior to starting and check the closet temp after 24 hours. It may get warmer than you think. Just better to make sure it doesn't shoot above 80

Hey Community,

I just started an interest in growing some edible mushrooms (portobellos/shiitakes) because i have been a long time gardener growing exotics such as fly traps, lily pads, orchids, all fruits n veggies, marijuana (legal in Oregon), and i always make my own compost teas, nutrients, mulches, and my own created genetics. While i was doing some research on starting some supermarket available shrooms i discovered that a family of psilocybin carries my family's name and some of you old school PNW Pickers that were around in the 70-80's probably know the man these shrooms are named after! COOL! So now of course i am on an epic quest to find/grow those specific psilocybin's and learn little bit more about that history attached to my family. I've got a permanent Green Thumb with plants indoor and out but I'mma green horn with growing myco's so thanks for any help that comes my way, and i am more than happy to share my knowledge on desert gardening whenever applicable!
