You don't need to give the cakes any light while they are incubating. You should cover the innoculation holes with tape.

Hope this helps...

Personally, I would remove the tape off the top of the jars after colonization starts. This will allow for some air exchange. The top verm seal should protect the cake from contam.

I have exposed my own cakes to no lighting at all, and to various degrees of lighting. It seems that I had better growth when there was a little indirect light, more so than keeping them in a cabinet all day.

And I always kept my holes taped up until if/when the colonization stalls or gets really slow.

You dont have to wait so long to fruit if you incubate in some indirect light. If you leave the holes uncoverd you will get more air exchange and faster growth.

I left somthing out, if you incubate the jars top down with holes uncoverd the excess co2 will fall through the holes (co2 is heavier than air) That gives better air exchange. Also it exposes the bottom of the jars to light with is good too.
