Time for the terarrium?
    #1535854 - 05/09/03 11:28 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

As my jars have colonized, they kind of like condense the substrate so that it shrinks down, and the dry verm layer on top has gotten all uneven resulting in a random type of growth of mycelium towards the top of the jar. My question is that should I birth the cakes and sort of even out the cake on top with a sterelized knife? I also have a couple jars that have a spot on the bottom that just won't colonize, maybe the size of a nickel or less. Should I cut these portions out too and place them in the terrarium? Any advice would be great.

P.S. I innoculated my PF jars on April 1st

No need to fuck with it. Sounds like you have great growth, and had the patience to wait until such beautiful things happen. Fruit those babys :wink:

i would wait 1 week till after there is no visible cake left... IMHO it makes for less possibility of contams and makes assures the entire cake is colonized (including the center)

You are what you eat..
