well king...why do you want to go with 150 cakes? why not try some bulk teks instead of cake style teks, alot less room with alot more yield, just a thought...But i really hope you dont intend to sell these sacred shrooms man, cause as i have said before, they will turn around and kick you in the ass if you try to.

150 cakes?  :lol: :lol: :lol:

no light at all while colonising in the jars, a little indirect light after birth.
yield? don't be silly. you won't do 150 jars, you'll see sense before then.

good luck! :grin:

damn boy. 150 huh? I would suggest, like greghimself, to go bulk, much easier to manage a bulk grow of similar size, plus you'll get more fruits off one cake. With that many cakes you can spawn a shitload! Some people put too much emphasis on lighting, it's not ganja, it doesn't need light to neccissarily grow, just a light source to tell which side is "up" once the cakes fruit, start them on a 12/12 or at least 8 or so hours a day. any light (and as long as you can see everything) will suffice.

yeah can grow 150 cakes but you will need tons of room and alot of incubtors and grow chambers but it can be done never the less.It will cost alot of money for a setup like this and it would be cheaper to use bulk teks(casing) to get the same about of fruit you want with less money and work.

nobody can tell you how much weight you will get because each strains yeild can differ from one flush to the next and some strain don't yeild as much as other and this is given that you have the best growth invroment.

so my 2 cents is this go bulk it will save you time,money and space

like a pound or so.... but with the amount of work you will have to do, you can quadruple the yield with bulk

Quote:

A bulk substrate is any biger amount of substrate that is used for mushroom cultivation on a larger scale.
A bulk substrate for cultivation of P. cubensis or Pan. cyanescens is for instance straw, dung, dung based compost, worm castings...
Bulk substrates are generaly pasteurised as opposed to grain substrates and flour based substrates which are sterilized and are generaly inoculated using spawn made with whole grains.
