Colonization on the inside
    #1323970 - 02/21/03 06:50 AM (14 years, 7 months ago)

Jeff just birthed a few jars and noticed that under the vermiculite layer the middle doesn't seem to be colonized. However, before Jeff birthed them he noticed that they appeared to be fully colonized from the outside. Maybe the mycelium isn't as noticeable on the inner-parts of the cakes? Or maybe he's just fucked!

Free thinkers are dangerous.

Just don't mess with them. Hopefully they will colonize the center before some sort of contam takes hold. I would guess that they will be fine though.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S. Lewis

My aquaintance had this problem. This was solved by packing the jars more loosely. Actually, he doesnt pack them at all anymore. He just lays the PF mix in there nice and fluffy like.  :smile:
