I just recieved soem half pt jars. After inoculation do i leave the tape over the holes on the jar lid or put the tape back over the holes. Also should the jars get any light during incubation and what about light after birthing

Tape is bad, but if the jars had no dry vermiculite barrier on the top you might want to. If the growth stalls, take the tape off and flip the jars.

There should be a dry vermiculite barrier, though -- if there is there's no need for tape -- just keep things "sterile" and incubate in a clean place with still air. Some jars that are ordered by mail have no vermiculite barrier on the top, though, and these are a lot more likely to contaminate.

No light during incubation (or red light) is ideal, but it's not vital. Light is only needed when the jars are fully colonized so the mycelium knows to pin. If you want to fruit it in the jar you can just expose it to light the whole time, and it will pin and grow shrooms in the jar. If you don't want to fruit it in the jar, exposing it to light too soon can make it pin too soon....

Put tape back over the holes until you see some growth, then remove them for air exchange. read some of other tecks on the main site or on the board on light after and durring colonization.

after innoculation...leave the tape over the holes of the jars for about three days...after that i usally take the tape off..and then with a week or two..you should see signs of mycelia forming...

jars should not recieve anylight until they are fully colonize...a little light here and there to check on them is not going to hurt them either

good luck
