I've never heard of it being done, but I can't see why it would hurt as long as everything is sterile. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Why would you put too much moister in the substrate in the first place? :-P

Yeah, it would be much easier to follow the directions to a "T"...the more celebrated teks around here are fool-proof if done correctly.

ITS A GREAT IDEA UNTIL ONE LEARNS THE CORRECT MOISTURE CONTENT OF A CAKE. THIS WAS A POPULAR TEK ABOUT 6-7 YEARS AGO. 1/4INCH FOR 1/2 PINT JARS AND 1/2INCH FOR PINT JARS. ALSO THIS LIMITS THE NEED FOR A ROLL IN THE DUNK AND ROLL

Would it be ok to put a small layer of verm in the bottom of pf jars to prevent too much moisture in the jars?




I wouldn't.

I'd stick to just the top layer...and making the moisture content right to begin with.

I used to place a thin(1/3 in) layer of dry vermiculite at the bottom of PF jars. It served as a casing layer after the birthing. It worked well.

the only draw back is that you cant see if the bottom is fully colonized, thats the last visible place that does.

not necessarily true, just as the mycel colonizes the top verm, it will colonize the bottom. It will colonize the bottom with better results because there will be moisture in the verm. The verm in the top tends to dry out a little because of the holes in the lid
