I've been reading up on growing mushrooms for a couple months now and am anxious to get started. This is my first shroom grow so I decided to buy the pre-made jars from caligrowkits.com and test em out and let you guys know how well they work for the first timer. Feel free to post if you have used the kits before with positive or negative results and would like to share. The kit was $50 and took about 1 week for delivery. They have a $100 kit too but thats a bit much. I got my spore syringes elsewhere.
The kit came with...
6 1/2 Pint Ultra Substrate Jars (Premixed & Pressure Sterilized)
16 Quart Growing Chamber
Termometer Humidity Gauge
1 Quick Bright Grow Light
1 Gal of Premium Ultra Fine Perlite
*Gloves aren't included.
The jars are all pre made with the following...
Natural Organic Brown Rice Flour
Vermiculite with Mineral Water
Bee Pollen (Nature's Super-Nutrient)
3x Lipa yai
The instructions they include are well written and easy to understand for the first timer. However, I did read a lot on other sites regarding the topic prior which helped me understand a bit more. For instance how important being sterile is. They no where suggest using gloves, which to me was kinda weird. So I recommend still doing some research on your own to understand whats going on instead of just following instructions that don't explain whats taking place. There are 4 injection sites on the top of each jar. Which you use to inject the spores right into the cake.
