if i had to guess i would say its the 3:1:1 ratio it supposed to be 2:1:1 so now go mix those jars right.

^^The other case could be my recipe. I used 3/4 of verm with 1/4 of BRF and 1/4 water,

probably not enough water. :frown:

the LC looks good. once it has used up the sugar it is normal for it to stop growing.

Did you dilute the apple juice? it is about 12% sugar so needs 1 part juice 2 parts water.
Was it proper apple juice, not just an apple flavour drink?

it was apple juice, and it was close to that ratio for sure.

hmmm, don't know what it could have been. I haven't tried it myself, agar has used it with good results.

Too much verm. Stick with the 2:1:1 verm:BRF:water
I have always done the PF Max fruiting formula with no problems.

1/2 cup verm 1/4 cup BRF 1/4 cup water per jar is all you need. It always seems like people run into the most problems when they try to alter the formula. Don't do it! :wink:
This is the perfect mix for a trouble-free jar experience assuming everything else (sterilization, etc) is done right.
