I find gas exchange to be important or else colonization can stall. I use micropore tape which is cheap and effective and allows the myc to breathe whilst still protecting the jars from contams.

Me to i use micro pore medical tape, the sort that holds on wound dressings.You may have some in the house.I not leave the holes as they are but place a sheet of tin foil over the jar lid and squeese to fit.Use an elastic band to hold it on if you like to.

couldnt you use the tyvtek as a good filter, from what i hear its the best filter method around and its cheap :smile:. You will notice next to my name i do not have a outstanding amount of post so i may very well be wrong.

You don't really need tyvtek or any other filters while using the PF Tek, the strait verm layer acts as the only buffer that you need. 

Many people like to leave the holes covered with tape for the first week or so, and then take the tape off to allow a bit more gas exchange once the white stuff has really started to grow.  But your milage may vary. 

Covering with tin-foil, coffee filters, or other buffers is not necessary, but can act as one additional layer of protection if your environment is especially dirty and you want to be extra careful.
