    #1079455 - 11/23/02 03:38 PM (15 years, 23 days ago)

Hi a friend of mine is currently attempting his first grow and he started by just making 12 half pint PF cakes... first of all the verm he used seemed to be very fine and after the cakes were mixed it seemed to have a dark gray color compared to the lighter color that he saw in the PF tek for simple minds site... is that a problem? second when he went to pressure cook for some reason his pressure gauge wasnt reading a psi however lots of steam was coming out and he felt like he did it right... is that a problem? now to the actual question he had 1 that the jar was not fully secured on and seeing as how its been 3 days and no sign of mycleium growth was present on any of the jars he has decieded to open it up and see what it looks like he noticed that the cake was preety damp is that good?

Thanks

vermiculite is very difficult to tell when it is damp or moist you dont want the jars too damp or too moist, and its harad to tell......and three days isn't nearly enough time for pf tek to colonize. leave it in a box and forget about it for 2 weeks. then if nothing grew, you got a problem.
