how important is air exchange in the jars during colonization? CO2 promotes mycelium growth, right?? so can the jar be practically sealed and still colonize 100%???

Quite important.

>CO2 promotes mycelium growth, right??
Well, yes, although promotes is perhaps a too strong word.
Let?s say it?s normal and beneficial for the mycelium growth at this stage.

> so can the jar be practically sealed and still colonize 100%???
As long they have oxygen. Then they will stall.

Anno knows his shit listen to him. Leave the tape on for the first week or two then remove and turn the jar over. I like to ad a coffee filter after the tape is removed even though it isn't needed.
