yes do you pack? what is your moister content? and do you use tape or anything else that can decrease air flow?

do you leave your brf/verm mix loose? you dont want to tamp it, I did on my first 6 pf jars and i Finlay threw them out after a month very little growth,you dont want your mix tight at all. my next batch filled loose and used honey water a week later at least 90% done.

if you have tyvek then you have no need for tinfoil. hmmmmm..... did you ever have an extreme temp drop? and what did you mean when you said you used a fork, did you push the substrate down with the fork? anybody know how long is to long for a pc?

no the water shouldnt matter. but how long has it been altogether? what kind of verm did you use (course, medium, fine)? how many cc's of solution did you use? did you let the spore solution run down the side? did you inject directly into the substrate?

the recomended time to pc is 45-60 minutes. and you did 90. now i dont knowif this will effect the water content, but i could easily see this happening. you may have dry substrate.
