Jars drying out in incubation...
    #1417456 - 03/29/03 11:43 PM (14 years, 5 hours ago)

I have heard alot of people say that their jars are drying out in incubation especially grains and am curious...

First off a foaf's first grow will be with PF style cakes incubated at room temperature in a styrofoam box... foaf is wondering if it is neccessary to put a bowl of peroxide/water in the incubation box to keep the moisture level in the jars?? If not with cakes is this neccessarry with Grains?

Well your jars should be totally sealed to keep out contams while they're colonizing so there's no way to get moisture in there, best to just follow the tek closely and your jars will have the moisture they need.

Hmmmm they shouldnt be totally sealed to allow air exchange... filters for grain jars... slightly loose lids for cakes. right?

Thats how I understand it.

I would suggest that your foaf try using perlite in the bottom of the styrfoam box, it's an ez way to manage humidity.
