Can someone tell me if it matters that some grains of dried Vermiculite are on top of the mycelium in the jar, that can't seem to get colonized? Merci!

If you mean the top vermiculite barier, it doesn't have to get colonized, although you might see it often colonized after the mycelium colonizes the rest of the PF jar it starts "climbing" to the top.

You already posted this earlier.... It doesn't matter if mycelium grows into the dry verm layer on top. It's not there for mycelium to grow onto. The dry verm is there for insulation: to protect the cake underneath that can become contaminated.

No I am not talking about the top barrier, I'm talking about some vermiculite between the glas and the colonized cake itself.
