Looking great!  It sure starts to grow fast after getting a foothold doesn't it??!! You appear to be about 1 or 2 days ahead of me... keep posting pics so I have something to do while I wait :wink:

Do you have a verm layer on top?  Tape?  Foil? 

Just curious ... I like to compare methods amongst us newbies :wink:

yeah my jars are about that far along only im using pint jars this is my first grow as well.

i just rubberbanded coffee filters over the top of the rings and lids to still allow air flow through cause its impotant to have airflow but i hear tyvex lids work best

Good job casper ... I'm too paranoid to try it all. Please let us know which method think is best.

phantasm ... I'm not sure if I can get tyvex at the postal office in Canada. Will have to look into that. I'd like to try ... read much about it. If coffee filters keep out the contams I like that idea... loads of them on hand.

so far it has worked well for me i have 2 where im using that as the lid and put the ring around it the rest of my 11 jars have themetal tops on them with 5 holes and 2 coffee filters over top and rubberbanded right underneath the lid and no contamns i did this because my jar with a foil covering on it contamned at about 50% so i was pissed

Tell me about it it was the farthest along then one day i can back and wham blue green stuff so i took the jar and burried the mycelium under about an inch of mulch in my backyard where mushrooms flourish there are prolly a good 10 different species growing in my backyard on the mulch but im to paranoid to hunt i just marked off wheer i planted them and hope they grow when next year comes around the mycelium is taking hold out ther and i dont see the contamn anymore so **fingers crossed**

Coffee filters do not filter contams and if they get wet can actually become a contam party. Tyvek on the otherhand is an excellent filter. Using the PF tek the dry verm layer works as a pretty good filter though.

well i have the dry verm layer but yeah my coffee filters arent wet at all and i mean it is quite possibly coincidence but its working fine for me no conntamns yet
but i would listen to scatmanrav over me definitely he knows his shit

also heard a hole with polyfill shoved in it works well to so yeah this is all just "what ive heard" so the validity is reduced large amounts

I'm curious casper, what temperature(s) do you have them incubating at?

This is my friend's first grow too - looks like you are about 3 days ahead of him. He reported to me that 6 out of 7 jars are coming along nicely - the 7th did not get contaminated, but it never showed signs of mycelium. (Somehow the spores just didn't make it in to that jar) No contaminates (so far); only vermiculite; temperature between 78-82 degrees; and in a pretty clean, untouched room.

Keep us posted!

You just have a sterile place your keeping your jars. I mean coffee filters better then nothing but is no barrier. You are correct about the polyfil though, it also will not soak up water and will block contams.

You can get tyvek envelopes here:

Free and free shipping. I just got 10,000 envelopes delivered to my door :smile:

Hey, they look wonderful.... Just a suggestion, though.. Raise the temp to 84. You'll have a larger drop in the temperature from jars portion to terrarium portion and will probably get a better pin set.
