Dunking the little white jars
    #1747252 - 07/25/03 08:42 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Hey guys,

My kitten dunked/cold shocked her jars today, and she was wondering if the substrate is *supposed* to be so tightly packed in the jar? Seriously..there was hardly any room for the water to spill around the sides of the cake in the jar! Anyway, they are in the fridge. She keeps thinking that she did something wrong...but I guess she'll find out soon enough! Thanks for your help!

Hmmm, was it fully colonized? It seems like as it colonizes it shrinks away from the sides a bit and allows for some water to be introduced into the jar.

My friends shrunk as well. If you take out the verm layer on top, you can pop the cake loose before filling it with water. Then it can float a bit so the water can get underneath and around the cake. My friend puts a little ball of foil in there to keep the cake submerged if need be.

I supppose you could simply remove it from it's jar and put it into something a little bigger (and well cleaned/sterilized).

Well, I think my kitten did it wrong to begin with because she was a silly newbie and didn't keep the substrate 'light and airy' as suggested, but it was mostly the verm on top that prevented the water from trickling down the sides of the jar. She will be dunking them for 20 hours.
