mycelium more prone to dry out w. filter discs??
    #1409418 - 03/25/03 06:24 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

I was just wondering. If u have some colonized quart jars of birdseed and ur using a plastic lid/filter disc rather than metal lid/polyfill. Is there any way that the mycelium is more prone to drying out if u keep the jars for a week or two before casing them?? The reason I ask is because it seems like a filter disc would let in more air than the polyfill would. Thanks!!!

Anybody else have any info to offer on this matter?? Would it be a good idea to put a piece of duct tape over the hole, to keep it from drying out. Would there be any negative results from doing this just to be safe??

My friend kept an untaped pint jar of birdseed w/filter disk in a closet for almost a month prior to using it. When he finally got around to it he found that only a few of the top kernels had dried.

Lol. I'll tell ya right now. I had some jars with polyfil in a 3/8 hole in the lid and they dried out quicker than shit.

I suggest puttin some tape over the polyfil and when colonization stalls, poke a hole in the tape to let it breath. Or keep the jars in high humidity.

I wonder if it matters that much that it's dry if it's being used to spawn dung??
