Loose substrate.. is it a concern?

Just curious if loose substrate can lead to problems. I know I read overpacking can be, so just curious about the flipside.

You can't really make vermiculite/brf substrate too loose.

Agreed

I have found that a looser mix works VERY well.

Much faster collinization.

if its too loose you could try just filling in the extra space with verm. although you're going to have to ber very sterile about how you do it, maybe spray down the room with some lysol, heat up the oven, open it and do it infront of the warm air of the oven.

bad advice

just make your cakes, put the mix in with tablespoon just let it drop in the jar, they will be fine.
