Colonizing Jars-Lids
    #4551393 - 08/18/05 01:42 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I've read several different things about lid usage while pf jars are colonizing. I've heard that they need a little air but then I've also heard that the lids need to be kept tight, the innoc. holes covered with tape, and the aluminum foil top layer kept in place. Is this okay or will they need more access to air than that?

Do not cover the holes. They do need a little air, but not much. You want to leave those holes open to allow air in. covering the holes will only slow/stop colonization.

If you are using the pf tek then the verm will protect your jars from contams else you'll have to use some kind of filter over your innoc holes. I like coffee filters because to this day I still have no idea what the hell tyvek is other than some kind of filter stuff! ha ha probably due the the fact that I live in South Africa.

So basically, WITH the verm top layer, I should keep the lid tight, the holes uncovered, and the top foil layer off? And when I birth the cakes I should discard the verm that was used as the top layer, correct?

Cool, thanks. All of these little things should really help to avoid contams and make for a successful grow. It seems like a lot of noobs on here are forgetting the little things so I'm trying not to make that mistake.

absolutely true llopez, i think it all comes down to reading and rereading the tek you are using until you have it in your head. that way you don't miss any of the little things that may make a big diff in your progress.
much success will come your way with a little more thought into the process.
best of luck
peace
