Taken from "The Magic Mushroom Growers Guide Version 3.2"

On the average, you should expect to get between 4 and 6 average size mushrooms per 1/2 pint cake. On the average you should expect each cake to produce 1 mushroom a week but this number can vary in either direction greatly.
As the cakes get older, they will produce less and less and it will be more difficult for the mushrooms to grow. This is a result of the moisture in the cake being consumed by the earlier mushrooms. You will eventually see mushrooms form and start to grow but never bulk up during the initial phase of development. These mushrooms will seldom get big enough to develop caps. You can harvest these mushrooms but it is an indication that the rice cake is about exhausted.

Also I have read "from this forum" that the number 1 cause of aborts is Co2 buildup, so constant fresh air should keeps aborts low"
