i did a bit of an experement with them... i started a new culture and left it in the garage (ie. outdoors temp)... they lived... and they flourished... just took 2x as long for it to get going properly

don't put too much water in! it needs to look like VERY thick porridge & it takes a few days to establish

<a href='http://s13.invisionfree.com/TropicalFish/index.php?showtopic=214' target='_blank'>this is what an established culture looks like!</a>

about 2 cm of dry oats. mix in 5-15 medium grains of yeast. add a bit of warm water, mix, add more water, untill it doesn't look dry any more... no need for puddles tho!

you can start collecting the m/w in about 2 days time

in 3-5 weeks time, restart the culture.

Mmm Tasty. You know - leave the worms - I prefer a pinch of salt in my porridge.
