If you have a dry vermiculite layer on top of the substrate, I wouldn't worry about putting tape on the holes.

Yea.

If your going to put tape on the holes, I recommend a breathable medical type tape.

3M micropore :thumbup: :wink:

Works fine on WBs/rye/grain jars - as well.

most drug stores probably carry the tape. I got mine from London Drugs. The kind I got is pretty narrow, but covers my inoculation holes just fine.

I'd say, USE THE TAPE: I didn't, and the PF cakes got dehydrated, and 10/12 of the substrate jars "died"... and the other 2, well, they eventually didn't work out after birthing, resulting in a complete failure.

If I had tape on, then they wouldn't have dried out... the only thing you have to be concerned about is trapped Co2... so turn the jars upside down is the mycellium stops spreading / significant reduced speed.

A lot of grocery stores carry medical tape in the first aid section which is probably going to be near their pharmacy if they have one, or like peaceful_gnome said most drug stores also carry it.

I liked putting masking tape over the inoculation holes when I did the BRF/Verm cakes.

I still do BRF/Verm cakes from time to time...when I am working with new strains.

I like that the masking tape protects the jars from getting extra water in them during pressure cooking.

I like to pull the tape back and inoculate the jars with a spore syringe...then put the tape back over the holes.

I pull the tape off completely after I have mycelium growth of the size of a quarter in the jars.

My colonization times for BRF/Verm pf jars are 8 to 14 days...depending on the strain of Cubensis that I am working with.

this is just my personal pref.

:smile:

when i searched the forums for the method of using tape, this is the exact conclusion i came to as what would work best.
