okay, so i have these jars and they had a couple days where the growth blew me away, but like usual they have slowed considerably. i have the tin foil off but it hasn't helped. i drilled some pretty small holes so i'm thinking that's inhibiting airflow. i am contemplating just removing the entire lid, that should allow some airflow. i have a good verm layer and i am pretty sure that the tops are pretty much colonized. now, i know about the whole flipping thing, but after the initial exchange of co2 for o2 i don't see a lot of air getting in when it's sitting on the lid. anyway, i am wondering if anyone has tried any thing similar? i could always throw a coffee filter or polyfil over it.

try the flipping idea. the o2 doesn't seep in when the jar is sitting upside down, instead the exchange takes place as the substrate slides down. pressure shifts and air is forced to where it previously wasn't, sorta like a vacuum (or gravity bong?)
i wouldn't remove the lids just yet. flip and give it a couple days. my biggest problems always came from me being impatient. give it time.
