Dry cakes...
    #345062 - 06/20/01 11:49 AM (15 years, 5 months ago)

My cakes are dry as hell, and it doesn't look like anything is going to grow. I believe what i'll do is DUNK them.

How well should I clean my jars before doing this?

To achieve the corect moisture content:
When preparing the substrate, do it this way:
Put the required amount of vermiculite in a bowl(NOT for each jar separately!). Use a spatula or spoon to mix in enough water to make the vermiculite about as damp as it can be without feeling soggy, mix well. (A small puddle, very small, should form at the bottom of the bowl when tilting the bowl). Then add the appropriate amount of BRF and mix together. The idea is to coat the wet vermiculite particles with the dry powder as you stir the mix with the spatula. This sounds trivial but it makes all the difference.

That sounds like a great idea, I?ll do that the next time I prepare my substrate (instead of mixing the dry ingredients first)

Thanks Anno. I put the ingredients for EACH jar in seperately. Next time, i'll do the whole thing at once.

I birthed my cakes only a few days ago. They look dry as hell, but i'll wait for a week or so to see if they do anything before dunking them.

THANKS
