Is this okay?
    #2784655 - 06/11/04 01:29 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I got jars at pfjars.com and I innoculated them... but I left the lid and a sheet of alluminum foil over the top. Is that okay... do they need more ventilation or anything? The lid has four tiny holes in it. Should I take the lid off and only leave a sheet or two of foil?

And, it has been like 4 days like this...

Thanks!

They should be fine with the aluminum.

It's a big debate as to what you should do now... It's kinda up to you.

A. Leave the foil and lid on
B. Leave just the lid on
C. Take off the foil and place a coffee filter over top of the lid

Pick which one sounds best to you, cause it just depends on who you ask as to which is their preference.

wait til the spores germinate then take the foil off put on coffee filters and turn upside down.

Okay... it's been about a week now since innoculation... and there is NOTHING... no white flecks, not even any contamination... is something wrong?

Well, I read the FAQ and it seems to mention after 2 weeks to become a little worried. I'm now on the 3rd and FINALLY about 4 jars have mycelium developing... is there anything I can do to speed up the others? I am still pondering whether or not to take the lids off....

Take off the lid and leave the aluminum on. You can put a rubberband around it, but usually not necessary. Taking the lid off will greatly increase the airexchange in the jars. The colonization should speed up a lot.

>Take off the lid and leave the aluminum on. ..... Taking the lid off will greatly increase the airexchange in the jars.

....And the contamination risk while doing so. I would advise against it at this point of the time. Just leave the aluminium foil loosely on.
