How does shaking jars help, it is not even mentioned in the PF tek. Should I be doing this?

the reason people shake jars(grain) is because it it leaves traces of mycelia everywhere and they all grow at the same time, makes it grow real fast.

it wont work with cakes.

Not with PF tek jars.
That?s why you inoculate the substrate at 4 places.

I'm using the PF Tek, and tried shaking the jars after innoculating them. I've never had a faster colonization. So apparently it works.

  It's not needed to make several innoc. when you use grains, just innoc.
  in one place and shake the jars, that way the spores goes for all the
  jar!!! and you will have  many points of germination inside tha jar!!!!! :wink:

Jars w/brf = No shaking, it all together.

Jars w/birdsee = shaking, there spread out and room.

then you didn't do pftek. there shouldn't be any room in the jar for anything to move about.
grain jars are typically 1/4-1/2 air, so you can shake em after squirting spores in, then again after they germinate.
