Anyone familar with polyfill lids or filter discs?

I read that popcorn colonizes very quickly so I decided to try it using Koh Samui strain. I have been incubating @82 degrees and seeing quick results but it has only been 6 days. These ones I am not using a filter disc, or polyfill lids. Just metal band tops with the lid part turned upside-down. I am going to next try and use some polyfill lids to see the difference in the colonization time. I was wondering about others experiences using popcorn as a substrate and the use of filter lids or polyfill lids.

If you're going all out for quick colonization, you should use rye. I haven't used it yet, but from what I read, that shit is crazy fast at colonizing.

I'm also curious as to how much gas exchange the things need when they are colonizing. I want to say that I heard somewhere that CO2 is good for the myc, is that way off?

I know it's bad for fruiting.

I have some 5-6 day old rye jars innoc. with eq.(A spore strain that is known for slow germination) and the jars are almost 1/2 way done. Rye is the shit, but I've also had 13 contam. jars so far... So rye is not as easy but it is fast.

Don't grow mushrooms if it is illegal where you live.
