Old Jars that just started
    #1378338 - 03/15/03 02:10 PM (15 years, 2 months ago)

Well a month ago is did some PR jars, and they never worked, well I cam across them a few days ago and I took the tape off the top of the jars and now they are colonizing very fast, from 0% to about 50% in 3 days. You guys think this is normal? I had no oxygen for the longest time, then I read that you dont need tape on the top of the jars and now they are doing GREAT. No contams or anything. Whatcha guys/girls think?

Tape on the holes on the top of the jars I should say.

If you are doing the PF tek with a top verm barrier then leave the tape off and enjoy the fast growth.  :smile:

Agree with taters, precious.

A little air exchange needs to take place after a point, especially if your jars stall out.

Yes they definately need that oxygen exchange. I had a few without holes once that seemed to stop after a while, After opening up again they seem to just start flying again.

I'm in the same situation as this guy, I'm taking the tape off as I type (not really:)). Should I open the lits and let some air exchange, or am I thinking of another step of the process?

is the layer of foil still necessary??

i got some jars that are about 70% but im worrried that they might catch contams if i let the tape off, and i dont want the last 3 weeks of slow colonization to go to waste

If you are using the PF tek with a top verm barrier then you do not need the foil.
