Air Exchange on BRF?
    #1541042 - 05/12/03 07:52 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)

Hello all,
A freind recomended removing the tape from the 4 holes on top of the 1/2 pinters....And removing them from the ziplock bags.
He said that they need air exchange. This does make sense now that they are starting to grow myc..But my freind is still concerned about contams...
They are sitting on a towel in a tub in tub incubator at then covered with a towel. CLean environment. Here is the question
1) should he remove the tape?
2) should he put a layer of moist verm to humidify the incubator?
3)Do they need humidity if you break the seals?
4)if there is no verm in the incubator ....... At this point could this dry out the 1/2pinters with the BRF/Verm substrate?

what are the pros and cons?

Remove from bags, and remove tape, and put a coffee filter rubber banded around the top.d

Thanks folks, that tape is out of here. It has been a week and my friend has slow growth as you can see above. Hopefully this will get things rolling..........

Flip the bitches upside down, co2 is heavier than air so it should "sink" out.

can anybody confirm this?

hey it seems to be going on pretty well. :smile:..huh...keep on it and update that log of urs at the other forum..

just open them ziplock bags a tad bit and that should be more than enough dont chuck the bags cause u can handle them without worrying about contams creeping inside the jars................... the growth rate does slow down a little as time goes by i remember when u inocuated...ur going spot on buddy chill.... :tongue:

Yes.

No. If you want to humidify the chamber use perlite.

Quote:

3)Do they need humidity if you break the seals?



Usually not. But if you live in a very arid climate then your jars may dry over time, and using humidication can be beneficial.

See 2 & 3.

It has been 24 hours since my friend removed the tape. He has verm at the top layer so he is not that concerned about contams. The myc has grown fast overnight. But now since he let the air exchange occure there appears to be tiny moisture droplets between the myc clouds and the side of the jar..... Is this a problem?????
