ok, so you are saying they will be ok if i just let them be. they appear to be very dry. none in the past have seemed this dry to me. the verm and brf actually move around in the jar a bit. worried they may not colonize without proper water content. it may be due to the fact that i used a much finer verm this time, whereas in the past i have had the very granular verm. opinions?

I would trust what RK says...
But I had some jars with very fine verm that dried out. They had stopped growing.. as soon as I injected some fresh water they started right up again.

But I am just starting at this... so take it for what its worth.
Good luck

thanks, appreciate all info. everyone has different circumstances. i trust that roadkill knows his shit. but like in your instance adding water boosted them back to life. i will wait and see what happens. if they appear to need more water later on i will give it to them. i just didn't want to over water that would be worse imho.

Oh, one other thing that I think everyone would agree with. I also raised the RH in my incubator. That helped as well because it stopped the water from being dragged out of the jars...

yes thanks, i need to set up a more conventional incubator. i am actually trying to get a commercial type incubator from the lab i work at since we have a few just sitting around in the basement. that will be the cats meow if i can swing it. another reason they may be a little dry is i autoclaved them the week before i received the syringes, so they may have dried a little in that time period even though they were sealed in autoclave bags. hoping for the best. thanks for the imput.
peace

4 days is too soon to add water. There is an added risk of contam or jar failure should you add water.

Even if the jars are too dry, germination should still occur and mycelium should still grow some. Should the mycelial growth halt after a few days and the cakes STILL appear to be too dry, you can try to add some water.

I do not do PF cakes anymore, but I have added water to them in the past. Simply boil some water, suck it into a syringe and squirt it out a few times, then fill syring again, allow to cool, and inject 2 - 3 cc's.
