Hello everyone, I'm happy to be here. I'm from Brazil, and here the scenario of mycology is superficial, I hope to be part of this advance, learning from all of you, to teach my countrymen. Thank you very much.

I was reading the post about flowhoods, and the possibility of combining filters to make a bigger flow area was forgotten. An example of this may be seen on youtube in this video: 

Mushroom Mycelium Tissue Culturing in Liquid and Agar Media , by Southwest Mushrooms. I see at Southwest Mushrooms, he actually has 3 different units ( which reduces the weight of the whole setup should one ever need to move it).

Yee-haw... I made it in. Had a little trouble with the email confirmation so big kudos to Zen for getting me in.


New to shrooms. Been growing pot for about 50 years. Did plenty of psychedelics in the 60's and 70's but nothing since. Looking forward to my first shroom grow. I have everything I need except spores and they will be here this week. So... I am off and running.


Looks like a ton of great info. I'll be reading more than posting but if you have a pot forum here, maybe I can contribute there.


Thanks again

Greetings Mycotopia family!

Been cultivating for just over a year now, and as much as I feel like I've learned a lot, I know that I've only just begun the journey of mycology. I am excited to be here to seek some answers, and be able to learn, from some of the obvious veterans of the community and practice.


Pleasure to meet you all! Mush love!

Here is a link to some great wild mushroom photography, and ecology info, in Australia. Title: " Stephen Axford: How fungi changed my view of the world"

Greetings mycotopia,
I have to say, this has been the best online forum for furthering my myco knowledge. So, thanks all, honestly.

Hi everybody! I come from shroomery, but I'm a total newbie, I'm just starting.

I had a VERY rough start, first attending a workshop where some wrong information was given and then buying a ridiculously expensive contaminated grow kit (I know I know, grow kits are shit, and it's true, I learned it the hard way). The kit came with two brf jars. One of them was ENTIRELY, and I literally mean entirely covered in cobweb, and the other one took 6 weeks to kinda colonize (totally bacterial). I was told to fruit in jar since there was no point in wasting resources in something like that (which is true), so I applied a thick ass peat moss casing (cause I'm a noob), to which the mycelium managed to form some hyphal knots on top. I was really excited. And then it stalled completely...I buried that thing but it didn't work.

So anyways, I started doing my own stuff from scratch. I don't have a PC or a tall pot (that's why I bought the kit on the first place), but I used some deep brain thinking and stuff to come up with a way to sterilize my jars. I used a big metallic jug-looking thing I had in my kitchen, and placed a glass dish on top. Worked great!!!

Some pics:
The jar on the left had it's mycelium appear March 4th. The other pic is what it looked a few days ago (2 weeks later, SUPER FAST!)


I have some questions but I know this is not the right place so I'm gonna wait until I can post on the cultivation forum.

btw does anybody know why I can't change my profile picture?


Anyways, nice to meet you all

Welcome Kidbuu !

You have 2 more posts to make here in the welcome mat to become a free member. You will be able to change your profile picture then.


Please upload pictures directly to this site. They show fine, right now, but inevitably the link will get corrupted. Once they are uploaded here they stay.


Looking forward to your shares as you go. You will find a lot of good help, and hopefully make some friends here !

Welcome Kidbuu, thanks for toughing it out so you could join us.  Also good work toughing out the first growing pains and making it work to achieve your first good jars.
