Info: Pints v. 1/2-pints

In my endless pursuit of knowledge I cam accross this, Its something I have asked about and seen asked.

"Pints v. 1/2-pints. Earlier in the log, Log had mentioned that he would have preferred to have used 1/2-pints to the pints he used. However, he now feels that it is best to use 1 pints, not 1/2's. If the colonization does not end up in waterlogged parts, it takes about 1 more week for colonization of twice the substrate. Log also thinks the mass of the substrate lends to the size of the mushrooms, from earlier experiences. As long as the cakes fully colonize in optimal time, they are the better choice. The pod would likely be horizontally challenged with smaller, more cakes. The mushrooms would have less horizontal space if there were more cakes: If one would like to have more substrate, it would likely be advisable to "stack" cakes (perhaps aiding in it by use of a cleverly-placed toothpick) to take advantage of the vertical space."

I would say you read this grow log its very informative Here
