This is called the 9er tek.  You can search for it, but I'll provide my experiences and improvements for the tek.

I've done plain rice in the past.  It will work, but there are a few factors to success.  I usually cook the rice first before PCing.  Fill the jars up as loosely as possible, since there is no vermiculite, you want to make your substrate as airy and fluffy as possible.  Water content is the other key,  after you fill a jar with cooked rice, add a teaspoon or two of water so the jars don't dry out, which may be the reason your jars stopped growing.  After this, put about 1/2 to inch of perlite on top as a contam barrier, if you didn't do this, or didn't tape the holes after innoc without a contam barrier, you might have a case of the nastys stopping mycellium growth.

I'd probably say that your cakes drying out is the main issue right now, you can try and inject some sterile water in the jars, but it's probably a 50/50 shot.  If I was you, I'd just wait on your cakes, they may start growing again.  If you don't see any noticeable growth in a week-week and a half, inject some water into them.  Finally, if you're going to do rice cakes, give them a week, or at minimum a few days to colonize after it looks like they're fully colonized.  That's because although the outside looks colonized, it takes longer for the mycelium to colonize the insides of the cake. 

It seems like it's harder for it to break down whole grains of rice, and if you don't wait you could be plagued with contams or aborts.  And don't forget to dunk after you birth, the cakes should be pretty dry by that time, especially because rice doesn't hold water that well.  Hope this helps  :gd_icon:

PS, next time post in the mushroom cultivation, this really doesn't belong here, but hey, I'm here to help.

I have had a cake dry up and notice the stall in growth. So i took a syringe and and used 8CC to spray the mycilium near the spots that where not colonized yet. A day later it started growing considerably fast.

Penalties against drug use should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against the possession of marijuana and mushrooms in private for personal use.
