do i need to put a layer of dry verm on the top and bottom of the jar, or only the top? and does the tin foil used to cover the holes in the jar lid need to be sterilized?

Verm goes only on the top and the foil will be sterilized with the jars :goodluck:

I have heard of people getting faster colonization times by adding a dry verm layer to the bottom of the jar. In theory this is supposed to help the myc to colonize the bottom portion of the jar,which is usually seams to slow down while doing.

Whether is works or not,I cant say,but it makes some sense. Maybe someone out there who has done some testing of this method will chime in and lay out the facts.

My advice would be to try it both ways and see what works for you, also, check out grains after you get the hang of things, good luck!

I have used both a verm layer at the top, and at the top and bottom to see a difference before. Theres almost no difference as the mycelium colonized the bottom verm layer as well as the brf/verm mix about as quick as the non bottom layered ones.

Maybe if I hadn't waited for the bottom verm layer to colonize then it could be considered a little faster, maybe by a day.
