Extra holes...hmm...?
    #1257305 - 01/29/03 04:23 AM (14 years, 26 days ago)

The PFTek calls for 4 holes to be punched in each lid. I was wondering if putting extra holes aroung the perimeter of the lid and one in the middle would help speed colonization?

It seems like it could be an idea for a test jar.

Hit me back with yo' thoughts, shroom pole smokerz

I use four holes on the perimeter and one in the center, never had any contam problems that weren't caused by a bad syringe. Too many holes though would not be very beneficial, IMO.

Yeah more holes, more contam probability.  Try more holes filled w/ polyfill and see if you can recognize a noticeable difference.

You could go to a filter system which many use..this does provide better air circulation. 

you can also turn your jars upside down later in their colonization period to force in fresh air.  I've never tried this myself, but heard it speeds up colonization in the later stages. 

If you want noticeably faster colonization then read the faq and do a search about agar and strain isolation and cloning. :laugh:

Marijuana is a horticultural plant.  Hemp is an industrial weed.  I believe they were both provided to us by GOD to use and enjoy.
