Magic mushroom growing for dummies => Steps to take => Step 4

Step 4
Begin adding the mix to the 1/2 pint jars. A large cooking spoon works well for this Be carefull as the mix should still be fairly hot. Fill the jars until they are about a 1/2 inch from the top of the jar(see pic #1 below). Try not to get the mix on the lip and exterior edges of the jar, if you do wipe them off with a damp paper towel. You don't want alot of air space in the jars but you don't want it packed in eaither. Leave the mix as loose as possible. See pic below the material fills the jar completely but is not mashed in. Losely lay a piece of tin foil that over hangs the top edges of the jar. Lightly press the tin foil into the jars opening. Trying again not to pack down the mixture too much.(Pic #2) You want it to form small "pool" so to speak that is about a 1/2 inch deep. Next fill the "pool' with some of the 1.5 cups of vermiculite you set aside earlier. Repeat the process for 10 jars total.
