that is a definite!! i take off the tape once the mycelium had covered more the 70%of the substrate to help gas exchange and have noticed this help with the staling stage many people have come cross, but thats if you have the dry layer of verm. at the top

The "staling stage" is when the mycelium needs to absorve more O2, it changes its "habits" from growing only with CO2 to needing to "breath". If you see the mycelium staling its growth after 70-80% colonization, you should untape the holes. Fliping the jars in conjunction with untaping the holes also help to give the mycelium enough air exchange to complete the rest of the vegetative growth much faster.
