Some strains only grow a big one or two, others produce more on later flushes.

you would get alot more if you had let them pin before removing them from their jars, as recommended by pf and many others.

Mine always grow like this too. it never seems to be a problem though. I believe it was hippie that said the water goes to the bottom because of gravity. makes sense I guess. I've never had one higher than half way up from the bottom

no, you can still re-hydrate.
and flip those cakes over every now and then so water doesn't drain to lowest point and stay there.

Case 2 or 3 cakes with straight vermiculite. You won't be sorry.
As for your cake... You said you are using a cool mist humidifier but I see perlite also. Are you using both? I hope not. It just needs more time to pin elsewhere.

it doesn't look too bad.
how to procede, of course, depends on your situation and your preference.
'cause there is more than 1 good way to go.
prolly the safest thing would be to just pile some damp verm. on top, double-end cased as per pf.
i neve got good results injecting but others say they have.
dunking, so far, also seems to work well.
some use drinking straws.
etc.
