Dry Cake
    #414452 - 10/05/01 02:04 AM (22 years, 2 months ago)

Hi all,

I made my cake last night, but looking at it, it looks very dry - and rather than a cake it is more just lumps of vermiculite(sp?) and rice.. How can I tell if it's too dry?, and if it is - can I "add" water, or is it best left? I have covered up the holes on the top, and there is a ltitle condensation at the top of the jar..

To achieve the correct water content:
When preparing the substrate, do it this way:
Put the required amount of vermiculite in a bowl(NOT for each jar separately!). Use a spatula or spoon to mix in enough water to make the vermiculite about as damp as it can be without feeling soggy, mix well. (A small puddle, very small, should form at the bottom of the bowl when tilting the bowl). Then add the appropriate amount of BRF and mix together. The idea is to coat the wet vermiculite particles with the dry powder as you stir the mix with the spatula. This sounds trivial but it makes all the difference.

Be very, very careful what you put into that head,
because you will never, ever get it out.
