I am currently keeping my starter Blarf on a 2:4:5 (starter:flour:water) twice a day feeding schedule. My room temperature is usually around 62F-68F. It was on once a day, but I recently switched to see if I could get it more active. Blarf has only been on this schedulef or a few days, but he still does not seem very active. He bubbles very differently from other feeding regimes I've had, but doesn't seem super active. Breads have not risen as much as I'd like.
Dulce is my firm starter, and she is kept at 1:2:1 once a day. She has been somewhat active, but is not as sour as I'd expect from a firm starter. I'm thinking of moving her to 2:2:1, as I'm thinking she might be getting too much food. She used to be on twice a day, which I think might promote more sourness, but then I'm worried about her not being so active.
Both starters are just new to these regimes, and I'm trying to see if by just keeping the schedule consistent for a while longer, they will improve on their own. Does anyone have any experience with these types of feeding regimes, or have any advice for me?
