How many times do cakes REALLY flush?

Since mushrooms are 90% water by weight, and those rice cakes hold some big weight. You'de think each cake would be able to make more than they do.

I think if you let it sit for a year, then it'll start fruiting again, just like in the wild. I don't think 20 or so mushrooms expend the cakes nutrients.

I have had a malabar cake flush 8 times.

After the 4th one its usually 1-2 mushrooms a flush. After a while the cake shrinks up sooo much. I have once grown a mushrooms off a cake that weighed almost the same weight as the cake??? pretty wild.

If they dont contam, you can keep em goin for a while. Some strains just seem to die after a few flushes. I really like EQ, but for some reason they would always contam before all others. Even fruiting in the same container??

This is the only time I really feel alive.

This is pure speculation, but I'd imagine that some of the subtrate is given off as moisture/oxygen/etc. when being transformed into mushrooms. I doubt that 100% of the substrate matter makes it as a mushroom.

With oyster mushrooms around 50% of the substrate is transformed to CO2(carbon dioxide).

I averaged 2-3 flushes per cake then they go OD (outdoor). This just keeps things nice and clean. :wink:

I would say the average is 3 flushes. But many people can push it to 4 or 5. 6 isn't unheard of, but don't count on it.
