Was wondering if anyone else has tried this yet. They seem to colonize very fast and with an inner resiviour there should be no problems with ample moisture for fruiting. So far the only downside of this that i can find is suposedly smaller fruits themselves but just as many.. sorry smaller doesnt seem like a drawback as im not concerned with weight but quality instead..... This same question was asked but it was put under anyone and got no replys other than me... so how does anybody elese think this may go.....

i've seen lots of folks play with this over the last few years, and most report good results.
the only drawback is the extra inoculant needed for more jars to hold the same amount of substrate.
otherwise, it's fast and fruitful.

Ive got 135 meg of this site in an intranet here on my putter used a program called webzip took me a while as im a dial up user. But the program is an awesome utility , kinda buggy imo but hay it worked.

Well heres an update the 1/4 pints are all birthed and fruiting the 1/2 pints are behind a litle 3 have pins the rest dont yet but all 12 quater pints fruiting very well. So th 1/4 pints colonize twice as fast as the half pints and produce pins sooner as well. But not by much. But if i had used the 1/4 pints in a flat cake i would have fruiting flat cakes before all my 1/2 pints started to pin. Just an idea. Ive got a bucn of experiments to do here o well. Not to mention theres 5 pepole around me that are all learning how to as well. Im just johny appleseed but with inoculum instead :) These are the trusted one though. As in like family for many years and we have all been thru the thick or thin thing . Even Mr OFFICER couldnt turn us against one another. Been there done that already.

Thanks, plinkerdink420, I have read everything and still haven't come to a definite conclusion about which way to head with this thing...but the karo tek seems pretty good. I am over a week away from having to make my decision as I am sure I won't have a spore print before that time. So I sit and anxiously await these guys to arrive. it's funny because I can't stand how long it takes, but it's really rather fast (when you compare it to other things like growing MJ). So I try to be patient, but I could really stand to use them sooner rather than later. Right?

Will the size of your cakes, or casings for that matter, affect the SIZE of the mushrooms or the AMOUNT of the yeild?

Ive seen small casings with big shrooms, and big cakes with small shrooms....

Its just that I have some small cakes that are producing dwarf shrooms.. They look healthy, start out as nice pins, then grow into mini shrooms. This is the first time I'd done these small cakes and thought they'd just produce a smaller yeild, not teeny-weenies.

It's kinda funny cause there is a nice little cluster or two that are moving! Its just that I think they'll be the size of a small Q-tip at best.

We live we learn.

there is a definite correlation between the total mycellia mass and the size of fruit produced, as you have discovered.
but small ones can still be quite potent.

OH yea!!

My buddies tinyshroom/abort chamber ( an upside down margarita shaker/strainer with dessicant in the bottom ) is FULL of BLUE mushies. THe small ones seem to be WAY bluer than the larger ones.
It's pretty impressive, been collecting in there
for a month and a half, and from a distance, looks like a jar full of blue...

Had one that weighed 40 grams wet from one of the casings. Biggest one yet. The next biggest muh buddy has had was only 20 grams... Pretty wild!

Wanted to wiegh it dry but cut it up to dry it faster. Time is money.
