Youll probably be fine. Just wait in see, no harm done.

I kept the jars in a closet next to my heater. Didnt clean the closet or sterilize it or spray cleaner in there. Left the lid's holes completely naked and open... no tape or anything. The 1/2 inch of vermiculite kept it sterile. Out of 11 innoculated jars, 10 grew with 100% success, contamination free. The jar that didnt grow simply didnt colonize and started looking weird and gross after a couple of weeks--- we threw that one out.

you dont need any tinfoil OR tape :smirk: , thats why you put the dry barrier of vermiculite in there.

a key thing is this man.  when you load the jars up with your brf,verm,water mix, before adding the dry vermiculite, make sure you wipe the inside edges dry, then add the dry vermiculite.  Otherwise you risk contams sneaking down past the dry barrier.  As long as you do that...YOU WILL BE STRAIGHT, dont need foil or tape.  Should have 100% success as long as your syringe is sterile  :thumbup:  flame sterilize before each jar.

polyfill keeps out the contams and allows for great air flow.
