I'm new at this so don't put a lot of store into this but, it seems to me that the blue veining is going to radiate from the piercing holes you put in the cheese.  Like in a Stilton??  That being the case, it shouldn't matter where you put it.  Right??? :o  Oh, I luvs blue too!!!

My thought being you have the PR-PV sprinkled on the inside and the Penicillium candidum sprayed or aplied some way on the out side you promote it's growth and shut down the PR from the inside, then poke it to encourage the PR to grow on the inside.
Never made one so this is just my take on what I have read :-\

I didn't add Geo to my Cambozola.  I did mix all the other stuff together though.  There's some really good white mold growth on the outside, and it looks like there may be a hint of blue.

I would actually like to try making a cam, but instead of the pc and geo just add the blue. Let the blue ripen the cheese as the pc normally would.

Wouldn't that be closer to a Maytag Blue?

Well day five and it's starting to grow its winter fur coat.  Once that's completed I'll poke some holes in it to get the blue to grow.

Decided to use this bamboo skewer to punch this one.  It's only .120" diameter, 3mm, and it will go all of the way through the 8" wheel so, as long as I keep it level, only have to punch half as many times. ;D

I thought the fur was supposed to stay on there.  Why rub it off?

You don't rub it off.  You simply rub it down a bit and basically spread it over the entire surface by rubbing your hands over it.
