too much substrate...
    #1360751 - 03/09/03 04:58 PM (15 years, 2 months ago)

1/4 cup BRF
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup vermiculite

after filling the 6 jars istill had about enough left over for two more jars!!

Probably the recipe is for filling the jars completely to the brim. I don't know why this would be but who knows.

those recipes usually leave you with quite a bit more than it says its for. you don't HAVE to use it all and packing it in the jars is a bad idea.
