Just wanted to know what is best to do. After innoculation do you personally leave the tape on the holes or do you remove them. I'am using the pf-tek BRF and Verm. yesterday I innoculated them. Would it be bad to remove the tape or would the top layer of verm help fight contamination?????? I would love to hear what has worked for you. Thank ya for the help again, this forum is the shit

I remove the tape and put them in a cooler. Always see growth. Well, about 90% of the time.

Good luck to you.

My friend does not use tape for PF jars at all. He uses foil over the top. Just remove the foil, knock it up, and put the foil back on. No need for tape at all, when they are almost done, you can just flip them.

Yes, the top layer of vermiculite will help to guard againsed contamination. Personally, I wouldn?t remove the tape until you see germination. CO2 levels will not rise until then, so there is no need for air exchange at this point.

Get some Tyvek filters, or poly-fill. They work so much better, and there is no need for a top layer with them.

I have used foil myself. Never had a problem with that either.

My hippie friend leaves the tape on untill ready to birth, however if he notices some jars are stalling he will then remove the tape to help speed up mycelium growth!

If you are using professional grade masking tape there are enough pores in the tape to allow for some gas exchange but still keep contams out.  I never remove the tape, and just 100% colonized six 1/2 pint  jars of EQ on dark rye flour/verm in 12 days.  :smirk:
