More substrate in casings=bigger fruits

This just incase anyone was interested:

After experimenting with casing PF cakes, I would like to declare that using more substrate has not helped produced bigger flushes or more pins, but the fruist are concitently heavier than before...

With 2 cakes per casing the my shrooms avaraged 5.5 grams per fruit, with a casings of 3 cakes substrate my fruits are at 10 grams... so twice the weight just because of 1 more cake... not more fruits but still twice as much cause of the heavier weight!!!

EDIT: Oh btw strain was Equadorian

Yep you just found out a well known fact yourself. Its good to do the experimenting though. I'm doing the same (with grain though), got all different sizes going (from 1/8th of a grain jar to 7 and 1/2 quarts all in one casing).

"life is like a drop of rain getting closer and closer to falling into a lake, and then when you hit the lake there is no more rain drop, only the lake."

Growing with bags, start to finish (including my new grain and substrate prep)
