When to shake jars...?
    #4744306 - 10/02/05 06:04 AM (11 years, 2 months ago)

At what stage should u shake your jars. This one is 4 days since being knocked up. When should I shake if at all?
Thanks once again!!

PS the other side of the jar looks the same at the other 2 inoculation points.

What kind of substrate are you using??? Is that supposed to be a cake or grain??

Thats a modified pf tek. Consists of 40% poo, 60% verm and then some added brf. There's 10 jars of GT, 10 jars MR, & 10 jars Cambodian all using the same substrate. I'm going to crumble and case.

interesting, hmmm.....i see no dry verm layer on top, do you have any kind of filtered holes in the lid? i don't see any reason to shake them, i would treat them just as a pf cake, shaking may compact it too much as inhibit colonization.
looks good so far.
:peace:

yeah ive got polyfil in the lids. Shaking wont compact, I find shaking speeds up colonisation cause it mixes everything up.

dont shake this one... it'll colonize just fine on it's own. a couple potential
problems I see is that the top of the substrate appears to be developing cobweb
mold and you also dont have a dry vermiculite barrier at the top of the
substrate since I cant see the jar lid I have to ask, what are you using for filtration?

don't get any nutes on the exposed glass. if you shake it up and get nutes all over the glass that will be a breeding ground for contam for sure (if it isn't already)
