The interior is supposed to colonize, yes. If they are that dry, you might want to throw in a bottom layer of 1/2" wet verm for added moisture.

That's just what it's designed to do, you want all your substrate to colonize.

It sounds like your substrate ran out of moisture from what you are describing. That's #1 cause for stalling PF jars in my experience.
