ok my jars are 9 days old and see to be colonizing well....my 2 questions are....is the whole cake inside and out turn white? or does the white just cover the cake like frosting?

also once the outside turns white how much longer should i keep in the jar.....one source said a couple days the other said a week?

i am really only growing these for myself....6 1/2 pints jars i'm guessing like a 1/2 oz

if i was to case what would the average be?

thanx again guys u really have been great on here.....i feel like an expected dad!

:mushroom2:  #1- the whole cake inside and out is grown thru with mycellium.
          #2- let it sit for a few days after the outside is covered in white to ensure that the mycellium is grown thru.  I used to wait 'till i saw "knots" growing on the outside before I birthed the cakes.
            #3- you would get a better flush if you cased.  How much better I really cannot say, because I've never cased brf/verm cakes, but an educated guess would be 3-4x a cake alone.

Good luck on your grow, man.  Hope this helps!

I'm now getting fruits from my first time growing so from noob to noob.

I used the cake method.
6 x 1/2 pint jars.
inoculated with SA strain.
5 days til i saw first signs of mycelium.
28 days til full colonization.
I let them sit for a week and 2 days.
birthed them. (i used the dunk tek on 3 of them)
5 days later i saw pins.
4 days after that my mushrooms are about 4-6 inches long.

2-3 more days i should have a full flush. I'm guessing that wet one of my cakes will produce like 4 - 6 ounces. after drying them i will expect 1-2 ounces per cake.

more like 0 to 9 dry grams per flush...per cake!~

depending on your growing conditions.

I have seen larger yeilds but they are few and far between.

Sorry about that guys. I should have specified... Yes that would be the wet weight and a total after a couple of flushes. I keep them wet because i think they taste better that way. i dried a flush off one cake for my little bro and the dry weight of 1 flush from one cake was just under 1/2 an ounce after i had sampled the biggest ones off the cake. the fruits weren't huge but they were a decent size. I apologize i should have been more specific.

I've gotten about 8-10 grams on the first flush using 2 cakes that were just cased with some jiffy mix (the lazy bum tek!). Def get some jiffy mix and case if your a lazy bum, but use h2o2.

If you have 6 cakes, and case them at 2 or 3 per casing tray, and then fruit, you could easily get an ounce on the first flush (if you get an okay pinset that is) Maybe on the first try you might get less, but just keep at it.
