2 parts verm, 1 parts brf ,? parts water!!
    #3998846 - 04/01/05 07:04 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

i have 5 pf jars
when i did the substrate i made enough mix for about 6 jars..i added 1 pint of water to it. and mixed really good.
the verm was very moist, however it was not drenched/dripping wet when i put it in the jars..
i used a wooden spood and put 3 spoonfuls in each jars and mixed it around so it would be loose
then put 3/4'' dry verm on top

my question is how can i tell if a jar is drying out?
ive been told a heatingpad incubator is very unreliable like that
it appears like the bottom is caked on to the jar, but i really can't tell
should i open one?
wait?
inoculate with water?

any suggestions would be great, thanks

When the jar isn't colonizing...or stops colonizing...and looks dry inside.

build a TIT(Tub in Tub) incubator...they work the best.

That might be a good way to tell if the substrate is dry...you will lose that one jar though...but it might be worth losing.

I like to use the Maximum fruiting formula for PF jars.

Maximum fruiting formula:
1/4 cup of brown rice powder
1/2 cup of vermiculite
60 cc's water

x4 = 5 half pint jars.

dude check this link out http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/7919/pag/2 it tells you the right amount to add to jars you just simply type in how many jars your doing then hit the calculate button and boom i think your off on your mix check it out :thumbup: the verm should not be very moist and you mix the verm and brf first the put the water
