    Pretty cheap. The main thing is the pressure cooker and aguarium and spores. Probably 200$ get you going.

    This is where I'm at so far...
    2 spore syringes (one was technically free)......$20
    dozen jars ........................................about $8
    brown rice flour ............................................$3
    vermiculite .................................................$6-8
    fruiting chamber ............ I'm figuring around $40-50

    That doesn't include the pressure cooker because I already had several. The fruiting chamber is a little high because that's going to include a pump so I won't have to fan and mist it. The plans are here http://www.shroomery.org/9047/Poor-Mans-Pod

    That's exactly the setup i used sgt. floyd. I put the mycelium in jars and one colonized i'd cook up some addition brf mix and put it in a bag with the colonized brf. Than I poked somne holes in the bag and put them above my frideg in the cupboard until it was all colonized and put it in a baking pan inside the poor man's pod. I thought I did something wrong and was afraid to give any away because of the blue bruising when i brokew up the mixture but they were frickin awesome. Me and my friend both ate 14 grams of little tiny B+ boomers off of the cake and I tripped my balls off. I never really grew them again cuz the experience was so strong and I didn't wanna be trippin all the time but it was pretty awesome.The shroomery is where it's at for shrooms and I'm sure they could help you out better over there. I got mine from ralphstersspores don't know about cali though.

    Unless you plan to grow really often and in pretty large quantities, just buy the pre-sterilized grain jars for bulk grows or pre-made/sterilized PFTek jars from someone like Mushbox. The pressure cooked costs money, you need to fully understand the pasteurization process, and its just a pretty big pain. Again, unless you really plan on quantities.

    Do NOT buy the pre-made growing chambers. They are cheaply made and can be put together from Walmart items for less than $50. I purchased the Mycodome and stop using it mid way through my first grow and converted to my Walmart home made version. I will tell you that one you complete a successful bulk grow, you would never consider doing the PF Tek again. The yield difference and size is amazing. Largest dry shroom from cakes was 10 grs wet or 1 gram dry. In the bulk, I produced a 42 grs wet and just over 4 grs dry. That was one big f'ing fungi! Good luck

    I bet you could have a perpetual shroom farm for the price of the one of the premade jars especialy if you allready have access to a pressure cooker.

    If you do your shopping right... you'll have a lovely setup for under 300 bucks! This is guaranteed to grow you pounds of boomers ;)

    If you're low on cash and can't afford a pressure cooker you can just do the PF (BRF) tek first. I get over a half ounce dry from each flush of 5 cakes. Got like 3-4 flushes off of each cake. That'll supply you with enough money to get the pressure cooker after your first grow. You'd also be able to make a liquid culture from the mushrooms you just grew and quicken your process all together.

    My fruiting chamber was a plastic storage bin, like $10. It was clear so I put a black garbage bag to line it, and one on the top with a clear plastic in the middle of the lid (I used a sandwich bag taped to the black bag) for light entry. Cut a hole in your lid the size of or slightly larger than the clear plastic in the middle. Put it on so it holds the top bag on with the clear part in the middle. Airtight
    My spores cost $10 a syringe when you buy 4, and got 1 (strain of the month) free. $15 when I just wanted 1 or 2 syringes.

    Pipe Dream - Was that 14 grams dry? Cause that would be hella strong, especially if they were freshly dried.

    Erm, living in the states, I believe most of you have the benefit of getting a pressure cooker from a retailer and returning it a few days later (depends on the shops terms and aggreements).. if you get where I'm going.

    I know some very cheap method's I've made my own glove box for like 30$, My parents already had a presure cooker. I have made my own spore syringe's for my previous grows, but that require's a fresh spore print witch is ez to make if you have a fresh bach of shrooms. Man growing mush is so easy.
