Newbie Colonizing Question
    #1439490 - 04/08/03 03:35 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

This is my first growing experience, and I'm using the PF-tek.  I've currently got my 12 innoculated PF jars in an incubator based upon "Alien's Incubator" that I found a link to on this site.  All I need to know is if there is anything that I have to do with the jars between now and the time when they're fully colonized besides flipping them if colonizing slows down at about 85%.  Also, my jars all have their 4 holes in the lids covered with cloth tape.  Do I have to remove this at some point, or should I have already? As always, any input is greatly appreciated.  :cool:

No.. leave them alone... don't fuck with them.. come back in a week.

monitor your temps tho.. make sure you are around the 80f range.

Leave the tape on.. cloth should breath enough to make it all happen.

good luck.


Sniff, Sniff... What's that smell???... ohhhhh.!!

Pot Free for another : nevermind.. never made it..

Cloth tape sounds a bit vague to me.. Do you think it's porous enough for air exchange ? Micropore tapes your best bet, I've had many a successful grow using that stuff, it's cheap too !
