How does this work, how do you do this?

cut a styrofoam bowl down to 1" 1.5". fill bottom with verm and places cake on top. trwist cake alittle to seat it in verm. pour a little mound of verm on top and wet the verm layers. rewet about two to three day or when ever almost dry.

I believe you just put a tablespoon of verm (enough to layer the bottom of the jar) to help it colinize the bottom of the jar faster...

Hello NoOb. Please don't give advice if you don't even know the PF Tek.

That layer of verm in the jar acts as a filter and nothing more; read, then post. It's sorta the virtual version of "listen then speak".

Ok. But it can be almost anything right? It doesnt HAVE to be styrofoam right. "wet the verm layers. rewet about two to three day or when ever almost dry", the verm layer on my present cake is all dry, should I wet it? its pretty damp in the terrarium so...

anything cup like will work. styro bowls are chap and dispossable. the cake your talking about is birthed right? if so then yes wet it. the cake need this water to prevent drying and more importently when it fruits. when fruiting occurs the watering will be more frequnet as the shooms suck it up fast.

yeah, my cake is birthed. I was surprised that it was as dry as it was since I've never touched something like that before and it looks like its (supposed to be) all wet and soft.

never rely on what it looks like. verm seams to stay the same color after the first time you wet it. just touch it, if it feels wet and kinda putty like its good. if it crumples when you touch it, like a lillte avalanche then wet it. hope all this helped.

the method i have used over and over is to put about 2" of perlite in the tank, and spray the perlite with a mixture of purified h20 mixed with hydrogen peroxide, then take the lids from the jars and fill them with damp vermiculite, set the cake on that. then add a layer of vermiculite with a bit of peat moss on top of the cake for birthing. keep the top layer moist until it pins. then let it go until the flush is done. then repeat.
