How long can infusoria last? If it's made with lettuce and water in a closed jar. Is there a time limit on how long it is nutritionaly good? I have some I started about three months ago and never used it or opened the jar. Would it still be good now? Would anything be living in it this old?

It's probably bad now especially since the jar was closed. I was told to remake it every week.

throw a piece of lettuce, cut grass, zuchinnI , whatever and some tank water ....set it near the window that gets the best lighting with a cover with holes poked in it (you need the oxygen ) and leave it be ....just don't smell it before using it ;D

Thanks ok Red. Guess I'd better throw this one out/ That is if I can stand to open it. Must be pretty stinky by now.??? I never put holes in the lids before but I can start now. Thanks.

Oh shawnie. I don't know who to ask so as long as I have you here I'll ask you. I'm not receiving any of my emails from posting. What could be wrong with it?

I was having the same problem. After checking to make sure I had it set up properly here I checked my computer. somehow they had been moved over into the blocked list. so check your computer if all is well here.

Shawnie. I checked there and everything looks ok. I don't know what's wrong. Guess I'll just have to keep checking in every day for posts. I'm still not getting any in my emails.
