leave the hole, place tin foil over the top. That way air will get in , but stuff won't drop in the hole.

If am wrong someone correct me but i believe either way with or without a hole but air exchange isn't needed all the air need for the culture is inside the jar. the hole just provides an easy way to insert the syringe without removing the lid completely also it help vent pressure while sterilizing the Karo/h20. also the hole should be covered while incubation like with a small piece of tape or band aid. :syringe:

after about a week my 2 jars of karo tek one with a hole and one without have a circle of mycelium about the size of a dime but in the teks they say it should go halfway up the jar. is this dime size clump of mycelium normal?

That's pretty good for only 7 days, I would say.

This is ~2 weeks.

I'm sure you could use it... It would probably be pretty extensive if you broke it all up. They're pretty dense blobs. I'm going to let it grow for a while longer. That is my first karo jar, I haven't used it yet.

I only injected less than half a cc into that jar, that's why there are only 3 blobs. In another jar, I added 1cc and it is much more extensive, even though it is only 1 week old.

It is very difficult to get good pictures of karo jars because of the distortion the water causes.
