Also, should we be doing these in half pints? or can we do some quarts?
would you think that whole rice would be sterilized by steaming, rather than pcing after the moisture content is right?

if not youll want 100% humidity so the fan goin constantly is not needed
public restroom, ey? -- hope ya sterilized it well :)
can't wait to see yer results,
i was thinkin about this readin dukex's whole rice tek
and thought a built-in verm barrier would be awesome
too bad the moisture content thing is a bitch already or i'd try it
i think casing, in the jar, or DEC, with verm after colo is just as good tho
why no DEC?
are ya out of vermiculite?
if ya need a ration of verm lmk i can help
anxious to see yer results! keep us posted :)

i only mention it because its the time of year when yer mixin up pottin soil and may have some on hand
also, when i mention the fan bein sterilized its not specifically aimed toward those cakes contamming
rather bringin more unnecessary contamination into yer grow OP in general,
just best to avoid nasties whenever ya can ya know :)

FOAF didn't have good results with the fan/cake combination. He uses the little fans for casings only.

they are cased but with paper towels
paper towels aren't a casing.
not enough water capacity
and no micro-structure/climate either.
piss poor substitute, imo.
paper towels are for humidity, like perlite,
