Well, I'm not exactly the lord of creation so I can't say.  That depends on too many factors.  Time will tell.

Did you do the pf tek?  If you did it does not look right.  I agree with Inocuole you might get something but I don't know.

Well it doesn't follow the tek and it lowers your chances vs rice flour, but something could still grow.  Wouldn't have been very hard to grind that rice into flour first so that you were following the tek.  As it stands you're counting on the mycelium to colonize huge pockets of just vermiculite, which it doesn't like doing.

I might buy some more spores and try another batch in that case

Did you use all of the spores on substrate jars of this consistency?

Oh man... 

When you're at the stage where you're having to buy spores, deviations from the norm are serious time and money killers.  When you've built up a small library of spores and have a mini fridge full of cultures on agar, that is the time to start trying new things for convenience or curiosity.  If you've got the cost of a syringe riding on your success it's far more important to get predictable reliable results by following a trusted up-to-date tek.

This one hits all the important points still.

The tek i read said 3/4 verm, 1/4water, 1/4 rice flour. That may explain the big pockets of verm you mentioned earlier. Next time i will stick to this one.
Thanks for help

Well you scale it to whatever amount you need to make, but 2 parts verm, 1 part BRF, 1 part water is the standard ratio for PF cakes.
