So about two months ago i attempted to grow some mushrooms and they're finally starting to pop out. i took some this weekend and it was probably one of the better mushroom trips i've ever had.

i grew the "mexi-cub" strain which is kind of local to my general area. the visuals were intense and the body high was unlike any i've ever had. i felt really connected with everything around me.


i took some pictures on my phone but i couldn't get them uploaded so i'm gonna take some more when the next flush comes in a few days then i'll post them. they basically look like this though, yellow caps sometimes orange with spots. mine didnt grow quite as big, but then again it is only my first time.








anyone else here ever grow their own mushrooms?

there are entire websites dedicated to growing mushroomsthat have their own message boards, i doubt anyone will notice. and if they did i really don't care.

did you order your spores online?

did you use a syringe or a spore print?

i used a brown rice and vermiculite substrate to grow the mushrooms. it's called the "PF TEK" its really really easy to do it just requires a lot of patience.

unfortunately for me it was so hot here it took long for the cakes to colinize, but finally its starting to pay off.


i ordered a syringe on line for $10, it came in a few days. i even totally fucked it up and it still worked, its actually not hard to do at all, and i got most of the stuff i needed from people on craigslist so it was really cheap as well. i say i spent maybe $40

did you make cakes using mason jars? if so, how many did you use and how much would you say you got from them?

i used 12 mason jars, two got contaminated so it came out to ten. each cake will probably flush three times and the weights will vary, but i should get a good oz or two of dried mushrooms, maybe more, maybe less. if you were to case the the cakes afterward you could increase your yeild exponentially. i wasn't ready to try that yet though seeing as how this was my first time and it is a bit more complicated.

also, ive been considering the PFtek for a few years now, but never had the motivation to actually order the syringes and take the time to cultivate that shit... maybe i should finally give it a go...


...and there are actually kits you can order with the cakes pre-sterilized and whatnot, all you have to do is press a button on the box and release the spores into the shit you grow them on. cost a bit, but it saves you the effort of preparation.

My brother had a nice PF TEK set up going on.
Sadly, the entire batch became contaminated after 2 or 3 harvests and he didnt have the resources (spore syringes) to restart.
