i might deserve a smack for this idea....

hey i've got a terrarium that i think its pretty much spent. the bottom layer was verm and the top was verm. & peat moss. problem now is that i've got a dozen more jars that need to be inoculated, but i have to wait for my new terrarium to gimme something to print from, SO, could i possibly (in the most sterile environment i can provide) cut a couple pieces out of the old used up terrarium and drop them into some new jars?? i've read alot of about g2g transfers from jars and liquid myc. but i can't seem to find this one, sorry if i missed it somewhere. oh if it matters, i'm using popcorn in most of new jars, and the old terrarium's substrate was brf, verm. water. does it matter, or should i just make up another brf mix?

Just toss the old outside and get yourself a nice little outdoor patch.  There are a number of outdoor teks on here that deal with spent material.  Adding the old with the new seems like a bad idea to me, dont risk(contams) your new batch to save your old.  Good luck

You most likly already have bad spores on your old casings but they wont grow on myc. Put the old stuff in new jars and you quite probably would have alot of contams. It might work in a few jars especially if you dipped it in H202 first but I'd bet you'd lose most, if not all.
