i thought colonization needed co2, and then when they fruit u give them more air, this is backwards or am i??

Adaptation-7: More Oxygen for Colonization

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The culture jars can be given more oxygen during colonization. This is done by inverting the jars so that the lid is down.
Advantage:
As the CO2 builds up, growth of the fungus slows down. Indeed, the mycelium benefits from increased CO2 during its vegetative growth stage, but eventually it gets too high for optimum growth. If you invert the jars, the CO2 can drain out and is replaced by fresh air. This will speed the colonization of the substrate.

Disadvantages:
There are several disadvantages to this. First, the rice cakes normally shrink a little bit while in the jars and when you invert the jars they will slide down a little bit. This will create a vacuum and pull some air into the jar. This air could have contaminates that get a foot hold in the uncolonized portions of the cake.
The second reason you will want to avoid doing this is the initiating of the fruiting process is triggered by three things. A drop in temperature, a drop in the CO2 level and light. You may confuse the fungus and inhibit a massive flush when you take the cake out of the jar. You will still get a crop, but it may take longer to consume the cake.

CO2 during incubation and there cannot be too much. The reason flipping work is partly right, the bottoms lack gas exchange not fresh air exchange anf by flipping the cakes usually do drop even if slightly it creates that vacuum Allowing for gas exchange. You then want plenty of fresh air once you birth for a good pinset. GL
