Why would you make special holes for air exchange, only to cover them up before incubation? That seems silly. Really, you don't even need to cover any of the holes, as the tyvek will keep contaminants out (if you're doing the PF-tek w/ dry vermiculite on top). Cover the inoculation hole if you like though. Band aids work fine. Correct me if I'm wrong here guys. :stoned:

No problem man. You're right btw, they also serve to allow pressure equalization during pressure cooking.
