I was just cruising through the post's and I noticed that someone said they "flipped the cakes" in mid colonazation. What is this? What does it do?

When you're like 60% colonized, you turn them upside down, so the lids are on the bottom. This allows the excess CO2 and moisture to leak out thru the holes, helps to stop stalling

this should only be done if needed, as there is some risk involved if the verm. barrier shifts much, allowing outside air to enter.

Hi, I used 1 syringe to innoculate 12 jars a month ago and everything has been moving so slowly that about 5 days ago I used 3 more on the same 12 jars just to speed things up. There has been no difference from the extra innoculation. My farthest along jar is at 50% and the others are all waaay behind. Basically everything is colonizing very very slowly. Is there anything to do to speed it up? Could it be too dry or something? The temp ranges from 75-85.

are the holes taped ?
if so, remove it.

Will do, thanks Quote.

Also the spores were B+ from thehawkseye.com if that might be the problem. Do you really think the tape could make that big a difference?

yeah, closed off holes = no air, and growth stops. early on, the colony is small, needs less air but as it nears full colonization, it needs more.

Makes sense. Thanks!

I just take the tape off. that verm barrier is excellent for filtering. Knock on wood, never had any contams from that so far.
Now I'm trying same with corncob, which I think will prove to be not as good a barrier as the verm, but we'll see.

I have to agree with An GUy, I just took my tape off the holes and all of the sudden....mycellium growth spurt.
