What's perlite doing inside of your cake? WTF? Perlite is used inside your FC to create humidity.

on the bottom you should have a dry verm layer. that will stick a little to the bottom. but your not damaging the cakes at all. if you wanted to you could have crumbled and cased them. if their white all around they should be good all the way through.

They will probably bruise a nice deep blue depending on how hard you had to squeeze them, but it won't affect grow much, if at all. I would get wide mouth jars to avoid this in the future.

@ least 12 hrs but no longer than 24 hrs. The closer to 24 the better. Make sure they are submersed ie. weighted down.

Mustang,
  Since the lights only really initiate pinning, anywhere from 4 - 12 hours on per 24 hour period will workout very well for your little friends.

Mustang,
  I would be thinking of using Rye grain or Barley, if it were me.

After I dunk and roll my cakes I always wait about half an hour to let the verm layer dry out some and then I mist my cakes four of five times over the next twenty-four hours to get the verm layer nice and moist.

Malabar, The rye or barley for pans. Is that just your personal preference or is there a reason beyond that... :ph34r:

Dub,
  The Barley and Rye are all about my own preference and past experience.  I found that though the Pan. Coplandias likes straw more than anything else, that seems to have the Highest vulnerability to contamination.  Where as, in  using barley, or rye, you can easily spawn to compost  which greatly increases yield and size.
  You could also fruit right on the grains, but I found that you will produce 100's of tiny fruits that may be so small that they are a pain, if not impossible to harvest.
  But, I haven't played with them in Many years, and there may be more new data, or info out there.  Dig around a bit, or ask perhaps seek out PW.  He might have more than I on the species.
  Either way, it's an interesting project if you so choose to take it on.
