3 questions, please help
    #390111 - 09/10/01 11:26 AM (17 years, 13 days ago)

1. Does everybody put the rubber seal the normal way on the jars, or does anybody put it upside down to make the seal less tight? i dont think it matters but i was just wondering

2. I usually tape the holes and leave them taped throughout the colonization process, does anybody do otherwise?

3. last 2 times my friend grew, it tok about 4 weeks for total colonization, which seems long, he used BRF VERM, PF classics and Cambos, any idea why it might have taken so damn long??

1) Upside down is the way togo.
2) I pull the tape off at about 50% colonization.
3) Cold? Dry substrate?

1-Rubber down, not tightned all the way
2-Put tin foil in first, cover with lids, this way after innoc, you can leave holes untaped
3-4 weeks isnt abnormal- maybe too cold or not enough moisture in jar- possibly not enough air exchange- Flip jar after 2 weks to allow bottom to colonize.
Hope it helps

Yeah, room temperature is good. Even a little dry heat can dry your jars somewhat.
