There are several things that may be wrong...

First, take the tape off the holes if you haven't already.

Also, your jars may be too dry. If that's the case, there's really nothing you can do but start over. Injecting sterile water usually doesn't work because the thick substrate wont let the water spread out and you'll end up with one oversaturated spot and the rest of the substrate too-dry.

If your jars are on a heating pad, that may have contributed to drying them out. A towel between the heating pad and the jars helps and the heating pad should usually (depending on room temperature) be on its lowest setting.

Hope this helps...

Try on different spots, but most times it wont work. Just start over and save face.

Inject spores at four sides of the cake about halfway down. You should see the needle between the glass and the substrate. That should be sufficient.

what you need to do is just start over.

if you had tape on....thats where you went wrong, dont even put tape over the inoculation holes, you only cover them cuz of contams....and that is why you put the dry verm on top.

now listen, if you had tape on the holes....take them off and flip the jars over so they are sitting on the lids, and let them go for a while, there may be hope yet. otherwise dont bother with them and start over and do yourself a favor and dont put tape over the holes. If ya didnt, then make sure you flip your jars when they are about
50% colonized, to let CO2 out. thats what I did and i had no problems, either did my friend. good luck
