Two one pint containers containing verm/brown rice flour were prepped in the fast food of the gods style and inoc'd with hawaiian. In twelve days the fungi had taken over about 0.25 of each container, but growth has since slowed and nearly stopped since two days ago. There are no signs of contamination. The growth media appears really dry and no condensation is on the walls of the container. Any suggestions (inject some sterile water, case?)

why do you say its dry? i mean- is there reason for it to be? like, did you set it on a heating element, etc?

pints can take longer as theres more substrate- personally i wouldnt inject anything into jars cos youll never get it even. and casing 25% of a pint cake is kinda a waste, since its only been 12 days... id wait, unless you think theres a reason why the substrate is dry, to do anything.

They just look dry. I wouldn't dare open the jars up to test it though. I do keep the jars above a heating element, so that the bottom of the jars are about 80F. The two jars with the problem are 10oz (as opposed to the pints I stated before), I also have a range of other sized containers, all bigger, and some inoc'd a week or two before the small ones. None of them are having this problem. I think either the containers are too small or I didn't add enough water. I'm gonna wait a few more days before I do anything harsh.
