Does this look like I'm SOL?

Ok, here's the setup:



And here's a jar:



These pictures were taken last night, about 12 hours after inoculation. My question is whether the jars seem to clumped to grow. Some people say that I'm fucked and the jars are never going to colonize and rot. Any hope? I don't want all this money and effort to go down the drain.

Oh, and the reason it's white is because I used perlite instead of vermiculite.

That's perlite on top, and I used perlite in the place of vermiculite for a brown rice flour cake.

first off, if you planned on just birthing them as cakes you are going to have one hell of a time getting them out of those jars. the shoulders near the top aren't going to let it slide right out.
secondly, it appears your water content is way off due to the fact that you used perlite instead of vermiculite. too bad you inoculated them already, i feel that you have wasted your time. perlite doesn't absorb water, it just kind of holds it in micropores and lets it be wicked away. not a good replacement for vermiculite which absorbs water and holds it until it is drawn out by something or evaps out.
time for a new start in my opinion and get some vermiculite.
peace

IMO perlite's not a great substitute for vermiculite, but it's worth a shot. Don't toss'em until you have stalled growth or another problem. Next time use coir as a substitute. Good luck.
