Times to colonize arn't that different the flat one have a larger surface to do the double end case. I recamend the dunk and roll though.

You can fit more of the skinny ones into the same space than the flat ones. I guess it depends on your terrarium and whether you have more vertival space or horizontal space to spare.

I'd say space is the biggest factor in making that choice.

With cakes most mushrooms grow from the layers of verm on the bottom and the top of the cake where the verm layer is. With the wide mouth jars you have a larger top and bottom to cover with verm. I've found that flushes are larger cause of this.

That is unless you do a dunk and roll in that case it boils down to space cause your just turning the cakes into mini casing anyway.
