I might have really screwed up...

I've currently got 6 jars cultivating mycelium. The jars that are furthest ahead are maybe 10%. So far there haven't been any signs of contaminents, but I forgot to put a filter in the jar so it's completely sealed. There's no way for gas to exchange- is this something that's going to really screw up my grow?

Edit: if it is, could I rub the top of the jar with rubbing alcohol, poke a hole (about 1/4 in) and stuffing it with cotton that's been rubbing-alcohol-ized? This may sound stupid, but I'm just grasping at straws.

Fake Edit: also would grain to grain possibly work to save it?

if you have a layer of vermiculite on top just loosen the lid and you should be fine i have never used a filter and came out fine

"The answer is never the answer. What's really interesting is the mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking. I've never seen anybody really find the answer-- they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer."

Good advice IMO. Just loosen the lids enough to let the gas seep out. I wouldn't try to poke holes in the lids.

You didn't specify what kind of method your are doin so imma assume pf tek.

If you used half pint jars they will colonize fine without air exchange being it's not a very large mass to colonize, but if you are using bigger jars you will most likely have problems because myc needs air exchange to colonize a larger area.
