Too wet ?
    #1614402 - 06/06/03 12:53 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

I made some jars and when i mixed verm/brf with water the verm took all the water , but when I put the mix in the jars the water , some water did go down and I can see it from the bottom , not that much though . I did sterilize them but I am not sure if I should shoot them with spores or make anothers.

Thank you :laugh:

If they are too wet then you can easily waste the syringe, or have the jars stall. Too much water can just invite bacteria, and the mycelium wont like it too much. Its better to just make jars over than to risk it. But its your choice. IMO, a few drops of water isnt too much, but if there is water standing on the bottom of the jar, then I would make them over.

Depends on how much you value your syringe.

I made 6 BRF cakes-and went crazy with the sterilization.

Unfortunately, it was my first grow-and my substrate was 'soggy' after inoc. I got a few spots of mycelium around-but after that, ALL of them stalled.

Wasted a syringe,6 jars, and 3 weeks of my time(including getting everything)

Better too dry, than too wet. The condensation that will come when you PC the jars, will make them a little moist anyways(which is perfect) if your substrate is a little dry.

If your moisture content is right, your substrate should have a light fluffy look to it, it shouldnt clump together be sticky. Sounds like its definatlt too wet, if the substrate is a dark brown colour then the theres to much moisture. It should look nice and lightm but not too light.

If u followed the tek then your moisture will be fine, unless you are using a different grade of verm that what is recomended.
