just need a little help
    #2019314 - 10/18/03 12:33 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Ive already read all the faq many times and looked at all the grow guides and read as much as my brain can take but all the stuff has sumthin different and i just wanted to get the minor details right.
so here it goes..

After i sterilize is it ok to let it sit overnight to cool down with the lid tightened and the holes still covered?

And also should i keep the lid tight and the holes covered right after i inject my spores until i see myc. start to grow? then loosen the lid a little and uncover the holes to let air in after the myc. starts to grow does this sound about right?

I would leave everything in the pot and not touch, uncover it, until it was completely room temperature. 8 hours for me. As far as loosening the lid, i wouldn't touch a thing untill i see GOOD mycelium growth. After a patches have started to grow then you could uncover the holes. Now as far as loosening the lid it is my preference to not do this unless the growth has slowed or if I want to speed it up. But the more you mess with the top the more the chances increase of contamination getting in there.

Basically once you sterilize and innoculate the jars, they are set to fully colonize. The tape is mainly there to prevent water and other contams from getting into the jars.

My friend leaves them alone until I'ts felt they need air exchange, other words when the myc. seems to stop. Wipe lid with alcohol, remove tape and turn upside down. This is what works for them.
