Why Do You Put Aluminum Foil Under The Lids?
    #11394350 - 11/05/09 11:37 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Hi there,
About to start my first grow, the one thing I don't understand is why do I put aluminium foil underneath the Jars?  And also, should I just put tape over the holes used to inject the spores?  Will tape keep it anti-septic?

aluminum goes OVER the lids and is there only for the boiling process then removed..

tape is optional.. the dry verm layer is what catches contams.

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.

You put the aluminum foil over the jar, not under the lid, to prevent water from raining down and ruining your filter material.

If you're using PF jars, you don't need the tape. The dry vermiculite barrier acts as your filter.

if youre talking about the RR videos, and in the sterilization process, thats just to act as a stage on top of the rings.

which separates it from the bottom of the PC / pot (hottest part) preventing you from burning your substrate and reducing risk of cracking your glass.
