Dry Cakes

I have a question and I think I know the answer but I thought I'd be safe and just ask....I'm using filter discs on my jars and they arnt in a incubation chamber..I just have them in a dark cupboard...when the cakes "seem" 100% colonized I remove the cakes and birth them...problem is they cakes seem EXTREMELY dry on top...hard like rock I would say..but no contams...nothing but white mycelium...after the cakes are birthed the bottoms of them wick up moisture...I am thinking that the tops of the cakes that dry are not fully colonized...its hard to tell because the verm is sticking right to the top..but after they are birthed they wick up from the perlite and then become viable nutrients that the mycelium can attempt to colonize again...but it seems the GREEN EVIL MOLD takes hold but only at the bottom of the cakess that i believe are uncolonized...I guess my question is if this is possible

put your cakes on the perlite with the dry verm layer down. the dry verm layer usually dosen't get colonize becuse of lack of water.

hope this will help you

thats what I do....what I was saying is that at the top of the cakes....where the filter disc is...the cakes dry out...which I tend to believe creates a "dead space" where the mycelium cannot colonize because there is not moisture..i know the verm itself wont colonize I am just thinking around the top or even under where the verm is it is not colonizing due to drying out
