I have been sitting on a few jars in wait for them to finish colonizing (they're all going at their own unique paces), but I think today is the day that I want to jump on getting their next home ready. This is only my second attempt at a grow, and the last I tried was with an ex who took over the project at this point -- we let one cake stand on a little foil foot via classic instructions, but then he later followed someone's advice, or simply came to his own conclusion, that grating/crumbling the cake into coir/verm would be sufficient and provide a more plentiful and easy-to-navigate yield. I think he may have been right in that, and I wanted to give this a shot again but he jumped to crucial steps without me so I missed some details and was wondering if my logic is clear:
I have two bins (the same bins we used last time -- no holes punched, we were able to just let them breathe a couple times a day and simultaneously monitored hydration that way)
I'm thinking three [pint] jars to a bin
can I pasteurize the coir/verm I have with boiling water? Or bake it first and then hydrate? And then, theoretically, can I simply crumble the colonized cakes into a 1:1 substrate and let it roll? Should I add a top layer to case?
I really wish he had shared better notes with me lol but it was also twoish years ago, shit
