For PF jars, it shouldn't matter all that much (you can even unscrew the lid a bit to let some gas exchange happen. as long as you have a dry verm layer to buffer.) With larger jars, mainly quarts, gas exchange is basically vital. Without it, growth will be slow and stall and contamination becomes a problem.

I would take that tape off, and just drape a towl or something over the jars. If not your jars will grow extremely slow, maybe even not at all.

Take the tape off and wrap with some foil.
