I'd try leaving the lids on but loosening them up to allow for some airflow.

Cool. That's what he did, since this site has been down so much he decided throw caution to the wind and loosen the tops a bit. :smile:

sparkey screwed up too(was impatient)he used the 1/2 pt (jelly jars)he removed tape from inoc. holes after a week and flips jars daily (noticed big growth increase ever since)he doesn't know if he's letting oxy. in or gas build-up out...........his are almost 85-90% colinized and reaching for the top/bottom as he writes...........t.c.'s were his choice so he was in for the long wait (not as bad as he heard).......bout 15-16 days so far.............he's planning on laying his cakes on their side for more surface area (he had a dream) I'd like to see more about jar size etc.........

sparkey used 1/2 pt "jelly jars" and is about 85-90% colinized..........he flips the jars every other day.........he thinks the biggest problem was not being able to reach down far enough when inoculating........is he letting oxy. in or gas build-up out................he doesn't know! but since he's been flipping he noticed a big difference!

on the laying the cakes on their sides issue, yes, it works well. i've been doing it about a year now. i add a tablespoon or 2 of vermiculite to the bottom of my jars before filling with substrate so that the bottom casing is colonized before birthing.
i then lay the cakes on their side in a little cradle made of foil.
they pinand flush from both ends at once.
pretty awesome.
try it, you'll like it.
