Gas Exchange ?
    #2908123 - 07/20/04 12:52 PM (17 years, 6 months ago)

I read the Gas Exchange FAQ, and am still a little confused. I am using the PF Tek, (EQ & B+). I have had significant growth in 3 days in the majority of the jars. They are stored in a cardboard box in a closet, w/ temps close to 75. The lids have the sealed side down. I have loosened the lids slightly, but should I remove all the tape from the holes and the take the foil off too? Or do they need to be stored in a more sterile environment to have the tape & foil off? They all have a layer of dry verm. I am also using fine verm. Should I put a layer of tape over the lids and the sides to elevate the lids?

Well I'm no expert still doing my fisrt round, but from what I have been told from other Shroomerites, is take the tape off the holes, if your concerned about contams, you can tape a coffee filter over the the top for extra protection. Also your temps are a bit low so you might consider doing a tub-in tub incubator if you can, if not expect a slower colonization time at those temps. Also if you have the foil still on you might want to try the oven tek, and get some more holes in the foil for air exchange, but from what I have read this is not totally nessacary. but take the tape off for sure they need air :smile: hope that helps

Anything I might post on this site is fictional, the only knowledge I have is from reading post's on this site. I do not conduct any illegal activites whatsoever in any way.

Yes take the tape off and tell everyone you know DON"T TAPE YOUR HOLES!!! Now do you know the difference between gas exchange and FAE (fresh air exchange)? Even with holes in the lids I always crack the lids slightly to aid gas exchange around the edges, you can also leave the foil on as it still allows for gas exchange. GL
