How about aluminum foil? I find that it's much easier to come by.

If you are doing the PF tek just put some duct or masking tape over the needle holes. You don't need the foil.

If the needles holes are taped closed how is water going to enter the jar, hmmm?

Less than an inch of water is needed in the boiling pot so splashing is an unlikely possibility.

Of nealy 100 PF jars grown by my friend, exactly 4 used the foil cover. The practice was abandoned because my friend is a lazy bastard.  :smirk: No problems.

wax paper should work, not sure if it will keep moisture out though. Get some rubberbands to hold the paper around the lid.

yes just go with the lids for right now, my friend has used about 50/50 foil vs. lids and has never really seen any advantage or disadvantage prominent to either, he also never taped his holes because of laziness, just use a dry verm layer and keep in a clean incubator if possible! 

:thumbup:good luck
