PF TEK I Think I Made A Stupid Mistake.??..?
    #1075377 - 11/22/02 12:50 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)

DO YOU SUPPOSE TO COVER THE 4 HOLES UP WITH TAPE WHILE THEY SIT IN INCUBATION? THE PF TEK I READ DIDNT MENTION COVERING THE HOLES UP BUT DURING STERILZATION. and i read another and it said you cover then during both? its been 12 days and just some cobweb contam in 2 and 1 has orange speckled shit. To counteract my problem i put about 4 ccs of water in each hole then taped them up. AM i on the right track now? and does my chances of contam go way up now that i did all that? my first growing expeirence

I've never taped the holes, you probably have more of a chance of contamination after you added water via syringe. Just don't fuck with your cakes too much.

I left the tape on my cakes for 2 months... then realised that they had stalled, removed the tape so they could exchange gases and get some oxygen and they went mental! I think you should leave the tape on for the first few days just until they start and you can check for contams... if all ok then take it off otherwise you will do what i did and sit around for months and months waiting for them to colonize!!!!

i dont see how the tape on the holes would make a difference for contams if you have the top layer of vermiculite on there...hmm..

Mspacman; It's the difference between an open hole(s) in the jar ,or not. That has to affect contam rates. No mention of any other filters, so I'm assuming none.

Huh? I wasn't quite able to understand what you were trying to convey in your last post.

down low- i didn't quite understand what you were saying, but the point of the top layer on the pf tek jars is to keep contams out, if you were so inclined you could just leave the lid off and it would be ok. the holes in the lid dont matter.

I put raisins in my jars for good luck, do you think that could be a contaminating factor? I washed the raisins in the toilet first, so I'm assuming that they'll be ok.  :grin: Just some Friday morning fun....
