i just wanted you all to have a look at my PF jars before i noc them up tomorrow when i wake up i used 1/pint jars and the ones that where on the bottom seem to have taken on some water and I'm not sure if its OK or not i have more cake mix if i need to remake um but I'm kinda going OCD on this it MUST work the first time or ima be crushed so some hand holding would be great from some of the higher ups in the crew here thanks for looking and reading

P.S. the first pic is the toplayer and the second is the bottom layer

Hard to give a definative judgement from the pic but the jar seems well wrapped ...How high was the water level around those halfpints...?
If failure is not an option then a new batch may be in order...You could open one jar to better judge the rest...

weigh the jars by hand,
if the bottom layer jars are heavier
you know water got in.
any jars that took on significant water
should be discarded.

When I PC jars, I use that waterproof tape over the inoc. holes, then wrap a layer of tin foil over the top half of the jar and secure that with a rubber band. It's probably overkill, but I have had no excess moisture after PC'ing. The jars look wet from the pics, and if you have any doubts, just make some more. Good luck.

If the rice looks cooked, it's screwed pretty much. But hey, live and learn!

Hmmm, really? My rice always looks cooked. Hasn't caused any noticable problems for me.

Couldn't he invert the jars?

I know that lots of water isn't good when growing Morel mycelium, drying pushes growth.

Here is a pic of pastuerized horse poo in terrariums. Each tub is aprox 8x12 with three lbs poo and spawned with three BRF cakes. They are getting two fresh air exchanges a day, is this enough?

Looks pretty good. The fresh air won't be as much of a factor until fully colonized or fruiting begins. Unless things begin to dry out or slow down substantially, your doing fine.

Looks as though it's gonna be a nice grow! Care to give a little more info? Strain? etc. If you are up to keeping a running log, we could move this to Photos and Growlogs. :D

Either way, good luck!!!

I will be updating this grow as it goes along. As I stated is an earlier post this is our first attemp using poo, really our first attempt at doing anything other than standard PF tek. Anyways, two of the tubs are Lipa Yia and two are Brazilian. The BRF cakes used to spawn were 60/40 verm/coir, BRF and H2O. The lipa's weren't quite fully colonized when used to spawn the poo, but we wanted to spawn all in the same sitting. The tubs were prepared sunday night and are currently incubating at 74F. Hoping the mycillium will run through in a week.

Looks good ..You may see many pins forming below the surface where the light can penetrate the clear plastic ...You can reduce that effect by keeping the subsurface dark ..wrap it with black plastic or similar...
