Mine arent going fast enough right now. Re-did all but 2 like 4 days ago and only 1 culture is use-able so far, but isn't getting enough to feed everyone in there. I've noticed that sprinkling in some extra yeast will help bring them up the sides, but that isn't working either right now.
Suggestions? I'm wondering if I'm not making the oatmeal moist enough for them. but I dont want to make it too soggy lol
I've had these cultures going for 6 months and havent had any issues until these past few weeks.
Making the oatmeal quite wet and putting it somewhere warm should get them going. I found that with my 'lazy' microworm cultures, if I added in some water over their porridge, put on a lid with only a couple of air holes and put it somewhere warm the worms would start crawling up the sides a lot faster.
I've also found they tend to be at their most prolific when you no longer need them haha.
