condensation inside my jars
    #2813528 - 06/21/04 11:46 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

This is my first time cultivating mushrooms and I've been doing everything by the pf tek, but I've noticed something that I havent read about and havent seen in other peoples pics which is water droplets forming inside the jars with the more advanced mycelium growth, right between the mycelium and the jar (sorry no pics if needed ill try to post some tonight). My vermiculite was not too wet when i put it in the jars either and I covered them with tinfoil when I pressure cooked. I have the jars in an incubator set around the mid 80's. I'm thinking that the moisture is completely normal and that I'm just being a paranoid noob, but could they also be caused because its too humid in the jars and needs to be aired out slightly. Please let me know, any links or comments will be extremely appreciated.

I think it is normal. Because of temp some water evaporates and then become water drops on jar's edges.
Just take a careful look to the jar photos, you can see some water drops too. I think you can find them in gallery section and grow log forum.
