Couple quick newb questions..
    #3078466 - 09/01/04 05:21 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

OK here are my newb questions.. I have a few jars that are over 3/4 conlonized.so I opened it to let it get some oxygen, but I was wondering if I should keep the lid loose or whether to just open it 3 or 4 times a day.. my second question is.. should I dump out the extra inch of verm.. or keep it untill its done colonizing. Once again thanks for taking a few mins to answer some newbish questions. Peace :smile:

Don't open it!!!!Just loosen the lid a little and remove tape if using tape.Flip the jars upside down if growth has stalled.Oce 100% colonized then take out of jar and remove vermlayer and birth.

dont take the lid off!!!!!!!!!

im assuming ur using the pf tek. the vermiculite layer helps to stave off contaminats, if u didnt hav that, and took off the lid while not being under a flo hood ur fucked. u should relaly only take the tape off, and turn ur jars upside down, to let the c02 flow out. try putting a filter over the holes though

If you dump out the verm you have a huge risk of contams. I wouldn't open the jar lids... the holes provide enough gas exchange for the colonization period.

Dont open it!!!! As long as you have a dry verm layer you can take the tape off the holes and the Oxygen exchange will be enough. Just like Mad Hatter ^^ says flip the jars (i like to tap them gentely when fliped to dislodge the "bottom" of the cake from the bottom of the jar), that can help them if they are stalled.
