i inoculated 4 jars with different strains. In 5 days they all began their colonization, but 15 days passed and i see no change. seems like everything just stoped. Well, i used very tiny verm . maybe thats the cause?

Smaller verm does increase the colonization time. You might try turning the jars upside down, other than that all you can do is wait...

If you think the jars are too dry you can inject some sterilized water.

When one of my jars dried out I could see where the mycelium was starting to die. I injected two cc's directly onto the dying spot and the jar finished within a week.

How much water your jar needs depends upon how dry it is. Start with a small amount and watch it. Add more if needed.

It sounds like you didn't add enough water during substrate preparation. Fine verm can hold a lot of water. How much did you use?
