PF jars turned upside down?
    #3129788 - 09/13/04 03:41 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I was reading a log of a pf grow where the bottow of the jars wouldn't colonize(not because it was too wet). So the guy turned them up side down and they finished colonizing. When you make a pf cake there are a lot of little air spaces inbetween the verm that probably adds up to a good volume. When myc. grows it produces co2 right? So wouldn't that co2 build up in there and since co2 weighs more it would just stay in there correct? If you have coffee filters rubber-banded on your jars and you turned them up side down wouldn't the co2 flow out and fresh air be sucked in? So I'm gonna take off the foil on my jars and replace it with coffee filters and suspend them up side down so the lids aren't laying on the floor which would cause the co2 to build up again.

I don't really know why it works, but it does seem to help. I can see how you would think that though, very interesting.

Its gas exchange, it causes built up co2 to be released = happy myc.!

Oh, exactly. The CO2 is the heavy part, so by turning it upside down, you're draining the CO2 out of the jar. Nice.
