microspore tape
    #11320154 - 10/25/09 08:15 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

Some say take it off for gas exchange some say leave it on to help protect aganst unwanted contams. Its been a week since I nocced up brf and verm jars and there is nothing going on if I took the tape off it may speed things up a bit but I have paved the road for contams. what is a guy to do.. It also seems that the jars have settled quite a bit and the 1/2 inch of verm I had is more like 1/4inch now.

just keep waiting. the tape isnt what would prevent your spores from germinating anyhow. i use micropore tape on all my holes throughout the colonizing process.

brf cake don't need anything to cover the hole since there is a dry verm barrier. Spore can take more than a week to germinate so wait a litle bit.

dude chill out sometimes it takes a week and a half for my jars to show any signs at all, especially if its a new syringe from a vender cause they put so little spores into the syringes.

actualy there is no need to have a fucking dark syringue to perform well. Numbers of spore will have no effect on the time they take to germinate. It may have a certain effect on colonization if the syringue is realy poor but I have used crystalk clear syringue with great succes. Too many spore will make competetion wich will be counter-productive.

A friend had some pf jars that were progressing insanely slow. Shea advised to take off the foil covering to protect from contams since the dry verm provided a barrier. Lo and behold after foil was removed they took off. Just let the exposed holes be exposed. If u pc'd them you're perfect. 0/12 no contam.

Take the tape off, that's what the dry verm layer is for.  And be patient, some of mine took over 2 months to fully colonize.  I'm not sure why they were so slow...

Did he dream about dragons? Did he dream about deer? Did he whisper  he names of friends who were near?
What songs did they play, and how far away? Why did he whisper, why did she scream?
What does the sound of a screen door mean?
Who talks on the hill? Who goes to the cellar, can you feel the chill? Where does the river, when will the wind?
How far are the mountains? Where do they end? Why would the church?
Did the service begin? Tell me who died, and tell me who cried.
Help me hide in the skin of a deer, my zippered-up bag in the mouth of a stag so swiftly I go through rows of does,
it flows, it flows, it flows, it flows all over the hill where the green grass grows.

well from my experience more spores germinate faster.
infact, alot faster, it spreads out the germination around the jar too.

related question:

Yesterday I finished packing and inoculating 10 jars, half B+, half EQ, and they're sitting in a drawer with two layers of aluminum foil over them. You are all suggesting I take the foil off? I have some medical tape too in case that would be preferable.

Wait so it's like day three, and I should remove the foil? Should I replace it with micropore tape?

Leaving the foil on is like many other thing in mush cult. It work but its not optimal. And why someone would chose non-optimal way do to insted of optimal way to do ? Thats what im saying dude.
