it wont help sterility but if you are taping your holes and still have the verm layer than get rid of the tape!! mycelium needs to breathe and molds like stagnant air!

Would keeping the jars taped really cause mold? I heard that masking tape allows enough gas exchange, but its good to remove the tape when the jars are about 1/2 - 3/4 colonized.

Also, I heard you could leave tinfoil over the jars while they colonize to reduce contam and they will still get enough gas exchange.

No, mold spores cause mold. If there are no mold spores in the jar (which there won't be if proper sterile technique is used) then no mold will grow.

If there ARE mold spores present in the jar then stagnant air will facilitate their growth.

Ya, i order some Tyvek and they just came in about 5 days ago, i put that over top my jars then put the side lids back on to keep the tyvek tight and set them back down in the incubator. I have noticed alot faster growth that away.

peace, dustin

Yes, it will colonize a little faster than if the holes were covered. If it can't get enough air, the jar will stall at 50 - 90% colonization. Of course, a verm barrier isn't foolproof.
