Depends on the size container you are casing it into
I would start out with shoebox sized ones and put 6 1/2 pint jars of colonised substrate in them...

Man, that's just really a very up in the air question. It has way too many factors. What you are using for casing material, what strain, how well you control temp and humidity. Even with the PF tek it's hard to judge, and it's not near as varied. With the PF tek though, I think that I read that the expected amount per half pint jar is 3 - 7 grams dry. I think you're just going to have to wait it out, casue I'm sure that you'll get a different answer from everyone. I wish you luck! :jamming:

I cased 12 PF jars (EQ strain) in one casing, the rubbermaid was about 11x11 inches.

I had a 1/2" perlite layer at the bottom (not sure why), 2" grated cakes, 1/2" verm casing layer (which got colonized so didn't really help much). I provided moisture with only a spray bottle. I got 700g fresh off the first flush (about 2 1/2 oz dry) :smile:, I hear this is good, I dunno.. Hopefully I can pull a second flush, but I am leaving for summer a week tomorrow, eh. Got some pins though...

Remember to tape up the sides and bottom if you use a clear tub and not to mist directly on the cake.

Good luck, btw this ^ is my first grow
