Sourdough Starter hints

I'm about to undergo my first foray into sourdough bread. I've been reading up in various books how to get the starter going, but have hesitations. I live in Hawaii (read: hot & humid), so my main concern is over-active bacteria in the starter. Would anyone suggest an abbreviated feeding schedule? Am I being overly paranoid?

Hi..Try SourdoLadys's starter. The pineapple juice's acidity
(how apropos)should keep the bacteria down.
