I've read a number of teks that give me conflicting information about the colonizing jars. My jars have tape over the holes, but do I need to loosen the lids? As of now, they're air-tight.

Well it just so happens that you picked a good ?. Every one has their own opinion...however I belive most well agree when I say that for now, you should most likly leave the tape on the hole....unless your using filter disk's?
Wait till the mycl. has really takin hold of the substrate(about 75 % of the jar is col.). The lids can remain tight for now...but as time goes on, your going to have to loosed them alittle, to allow gas exchange. If their at the beggining stage of growth, w/ barely any sign's of advance growth I think you'll be ok. Just keep an eye on them...before you know it, you'll have to loosen them.
Good Luck!
