my first guess would be to make sure you're using your PC correctly (make sure there's enough water, and it's not too hot) the recipe i use is exactly as it was on PF's site, 1/2cup verm to 1\4cup organic BRF, to 50ml h20. make sure its well mixed.

It?s natural for the PF substrate to form a solid block, it?s not supposed to be shaken.

>the recipe i use is exactly as it was on PF's site

Which would be for 1/2 pint canning jars (250 ml):

1/4 cup of brown rice powder
1/2 cup of vermiculite
45 - 60 ml (cc) water

As you see, there is no "exact" PF tek recipe.

I always use when mixing 1/4 brf, 1/2 verm and the remaining quarter is water.
