2 holes vs 4 holes?
    #3277797 - 10/26/04 02:09 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

For inoculation. with 1 layer of foil

I colonized my first jars...and the one that colon'd faster was the one with looser tinfoil (more gas exchange).....so then I thought, maybe I can kill 2 birds with 1 stone if I poked 4 holes...more gas exchange and more myc spots.

So whats better? 2 or 4
2 holes vs 4 holes for BRF half pints
You may choose only one

Four holes of course. Not just for air exchange but for more injection points.

On my first grow, I used 2 holes.. It took about 3 weeks for the cakes to colonize.

This time, I'm using 4, and I can already tell that they're going to be much faster.

I put a layer of Tyvek over the disc, and don't bother with foil while incubating.

I wouldn't recommend 2 holes to anybody in the first place.
