Re: Condensation in Jars

My friend tried flipping his jars over with the FMF seal in effect and his jars got contaminated pretty quickly. He uses the vermiculite now so he can turn them over as he too gets that condensation after a while. Also, he decided to take the tape off the holes as his jars seem to be taking their sweet time colonizing their bottoms.

IMO,the condensation isn't too serious. As long as your substrate isn't too wet. I use the verm seal as in the PF tek, and when I feel my jars are a bit on the wet side I turn them over onto their lids. The excess water then gets absorbed into the verm. I wouldn't turn them over without the verm seal on top though. If they have started colonising as normal, then I would leave them as they are and not worry too much about it.

Yeah, flipping them upside down and letting the vermiculite handle the condensation works well. I have a few 8 oz. jars going strong and some show condensation - but the droplets don't really move around. It's odd.

Next time, experiment more with the amount of water you use when mixing the substrate. Also, look into PF's double-ended casing tek.
