WHAT YOU WILL NEED AND APPROXIMATE COSTS:
District Psychedelic’s fees cover classes, information and access to teachers only. In an effort to maintain legal status for this course, District Psychedelic does not provide any of the materials required to grow mushrooms. For this course, you will need the following:
Class 1 - Nothing but enthusiasm. During this class we will discuss in detail the materials needed for the second class
Class 2 -
Sterile Grain Jars - we will discuss what this means specifically, and briefly discuss how to make your own, but for the purposes of this class, I am strongly recommending purchasing sterile grain jars. I have made arrangements with Tip of the Cap mushrooms to provide 3 jars delivered for $45.Three 3 jars are probably a good start, a few more isnt a bad idea either. You are welcome to shop your own vendors, but I have not found one more consistent than Tip of the Cap.
please put in order notes - DISTRICT PSYCHEDELIC CLASS
Spores - Vendors need to be very clear that they are selling spores for “Microscopy Purposes Only” . As this course is clearly a cultivation course, I have not established a relationship with a vendor, but instead will post a few links to vendors with good reputations. In dealing with them, it is best to not ask any questions other than details for shipping. If you mention cultivation at all, that will be the end of your transaction. What you will need for the course is a single MULTI-SPORE SYRINGE of Psilocybe cubensis spores. There are a million varieties and strains, some with boring names, some with more fun names. Do not get anything exotic. Do not get any other types of Psilocybe. Do not get anything leucistic nor albino. I suggest not the most popular, the genetics get weird, I think Malabars are a good choice, B+, Amazon, Puerto Rican, KSS, or Golden Teachers if you must. One multispore syringe can inoculate 9-10 jars. Depending on the vendor a spore syringe should cost between $10 and $20 plus shipping
these are vendors that I have been told delivery quality spores. I do not warranty these purchases in any way
https://reliablespores.com/ - might deliver to California?
https://www.millywyco.com/cubensis - calls everything stickers, no idea why
Still Air Box- SAB- this is the box we will be working in to limit contamination. It generally consists of a clear plastic tote, turned upside-down with holes big enough for your hands to fit through. There are lots of low tech ways to do this. $5-$20
Flame - between each inoculation needles need to be flame sterilized. A lighter will work but an alcohol burner is best. Worth the investment $2-$15
Gloves/Mask/Lysol/Isopropyl - most of us have these things handy these days, but we will need them to inoculate our jars $20
Coconut coir animal bedding -$12 Vermiculite - $12
