You didn't mention how long it's been since you baked those jars. You probably wouldn't see much of any activity happening for a couple of days at least. Also, if you simply left the jar open, the top and sides could dry out, making it more difficult for spores and such to get a foothold.

If you really want to see some brighly-colored molds, just bake yourself up a jar, grab a dustball from your basement or a corner of the room, drop it in, and re-seal. You ought to have a vibrant and healthy little ecosystem going in there in a few days.

Otherwise, it sounds like you're doing OK. Baking the BRF is unnecessary (in my opinion), but shouldn't hurt anything. In the future, though, I wouldn't wait very long to inoculate your jars, especially if you're using a ramsey seal (as opposed to filter discs. The longer they sit uninoculated, the more time any remaining spores or bacteria has to get a foothold. You probably won't get a totally sterile jar by boiling it, but it should give the mycelium a good head start on anything else in there.

You dont need to bake the verm or the BRF. Mix up the shit and throw in some water...follow the PF tek. Load it into jars and PC..or boil.....Also throw that jar you have open on your counter away PLEASE. You are asking to have some nice mold spores floating about your place.

all my attempts at non-pressure cooked teks have failed, except outdoor cultivation.

most important and probably overlooked, is that you should have knocked your jars as soon as they were cooled down. giving the contams a head-start is only a recipie for failure. i strongly urge you to resterilize the jars. if they are contamned, you'll find out soon enough. it is thouroghly pointless to wait to see if the jars are sterile. if in doubt, resterilize. if not in doubt, then what are you waiting for? get them knocked up!
