Did I use enough vermiculite in my PF jars? . . . .

I just read that you're supposed to use a 2:1 verm:BRF ratio. I probably used a 1.3:1 Verm:BRF ratio. Is this enough to have healthy enough cakes that wont take too much longer than 7-10 days to colonize the outside?

I made 8 jars, http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/7919/pag/2 says to use 6:3:3 cups of Vermiculite:BRF:Water.

I have no idea how much water i used, but the concoction wasnt too drippy when i put it in the jars.

With the mix your using and not knowing how much water is in em 7-10 days to colonize no way. I'd be surprised if they ever finished.

Yup, Magash is absolutely correct. They were fucked. I had to use a screwdriver to dig them out the substrate was so compacted. Apparently all the flour was too heavy for the little bit of verm in the mix.
