You would never want to grow enough cakes to make a pound. If you are doing that kind of cultivating you would need to use bulk substrates; poo, straw, whatever. If you are new to growing you need to start simple with a couple cakes and move up. I think a good yield is 3 grams per cake, so 448g/Lb /3g= 150 cakes. You need to do bulk.

you're one anxious person... Everytime i get on you got a new post. LOL
Welcome the the shroomery man.

Considering you get about 3-5 dry grams per cake...u do the math.

Well a bulk casing in a big-ass rubbermade would be a start...

That link is for bulk cultivation. I haven't ever fruited cakes. I went straight to casing. I cased 12 1/2 pints of PF tek cakes and got about 60g from all my flushes. I have 6 quarts of Wild bird seed almost ready to case that I hope to get much more off of. Do yourself a favor and buy a pressure cooker right now.

You can use that method for PF tek, but that is about it. Any grains need full 15 psi sterilization. I bought one right away off ebay for $60 and have never looked back. I did my PF cakes in it also. So far I am 100% contam free.

hmmm.  :shake: i won't comment on this.

Like the man said above, go for bulk.  It's not that hard. I would have start right off with straw or manure if I wasn't so scared of failing. 

Growing 1 dried pound in 1-2 months needs a lot of space and some efficient drying techniques.  You gotta know what you're doing. 

A pressure cooker is almost a must for creating some spawn.  You can still spawn bulk with grinded pf-cakes but it's not really the best way to do it.

Read through the FAQs. That is the best that you can do right now. If I were you I would not make myself so obvious as to why you are growing a pound. Just my opinion though. You sir are painting a big red bullseye on yourself.

Start with cakes.

Then go to bulk.

And never ... NEVER speak of profits again.

All of us here at the shroomery grow for personal use only... if we grow at all.
