How many grams of shrooms (approximately) do u harvest from a 1/2 pint cake?
    #3298516 - 10/30/04 08:46 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)


I'd like a rough estimate. How many ppl would a half pint cake shroom harvest be enough for?

This question is asked a lot!

There is no way to know. It all depends on how good the cake does and how good you do as a grower.

So a "rough estimate" would be 0-3 grams, maybe.

It is like asking how tall a tree will grow or how many oranges an orange tree will produce.

Grow 12 cakes and you should get enough for 6 people. Assuming some do good and some don't.

Damn, so shroom growing really doesnt produce that much actual product. But shit, if u grow 12 cakes 3 times each, and they each produce 1-2 g, you're lookin at $360-$720. Not bad, and I'm sure it only goes up from there depending on more advanced teks like casing. I plan on growing some when i get to college in about a year

That's a lie, you know it. It's x = 265^t * y^3. x is the amount of oranges, t is time in years (rounded down), and y is the overall average temperature in C during that grow season.

You shouldn't grow shrooms for money. Do it to develop a relationship with the force that resides within them. Sell them and they will punish you.

I don't know where you are all getting your 1-3 grams?

I had to raid two of my cakes tonight to get a trip for halloween (due to my entire stash being eaten and passed to friends) and I got over 35 wet grams from just my pins.  I had one mushroom with an open cap, heh.  That's 17.5 wet grams of pins.. 1.75 grams dry.

5 to 7 is more realistic if you have a good harvest, per flush, per cake.

That's 15 to 21 grams per cake from all 3 flushes.  Always dunk and roll if you are using cakes.  Always case if you know how to case :wink:

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

Since I have perfected my PF-Tek skills (I'm just using up all this damn brown flour I bought), I reliably get 40g wet from a 1/4 pint cake, first flush.  Second flush is usually only a little less.  Third flush is usually around 20g wet.  I chuck em after that, to make room for new cakes in my terrariums.

I've done some 1/2 pint cakes too, but I actually prefer the 1/4 pints.  They colonize much faster :smile:

Take it from someone who has learned. You get one spin at the college wheel. Pick something that you love, and learn to be great at it. Perhaps mycology? You can party and learn, but put learning first. JMO

ShroomAcolyte,

You have had some great results with BRF. I hope to learn to do the same. Are you using perlite or bubbles, or both?

On my 3 Ecuador cakes, I averaged 5.12g dry/cake.

On my 3 Cambodian cakes, I averaged 5.96g dry/cake.

i have yet to go to college but in my experience with freinds and such your one chance at college makes no sense at all i have had freind go for a year or even half a year and driop out and pick it up a year or 2 later my mom went to 12 colleges over the span of 13.5 years and guess what shes doin damn good making 100+k a year now so yeah if you dont like it just try something new man never get stuck doing something you hate just for the money love what you do and love life
