Depends largely on wether you incubate or not and at what temp.

Assuming you use PFTek, without incubation colonization of the jars alone could take a month or longer, month and a half maybe.
If you incubate at 84 degrees you might have fully colonized jars in two or three weeks. It also depends on how fast the variety you're growing is.

If you use cakes, which I haven't done, you might wait awhile for those things to pin. In my experience with casings, once you have fully colonized substrate it takes anywhere from 12 to 20 days to get mature fruits from a prepared casing. But I've only used PF cake substrate. If you use grain spawn or somethin you could cut down alot of time.

Took 33 days to full colonization using Pf tek. Birthed and have 30+ pins on first cake. No Shit. Newbie myself. Don't be impatient It's worth the wait.

It really depends on what method youre using. There are ways to speed up growth. Using the PF tek without an incubator, its taken me about a month for complete colonization, then 3 or 4 flushes for the month following.

With an incubator, colonization is completed in about two weeks.

Colonization is the only thing you can really estimate, because getting your cakes/casings to pin can be unpredictable... and sometimes challenging
