tape?
    #4668805 - 09/16/05 09:39 AM (11 years, 2 months ago)

My tek says to leave the tape on during incubating, but i read that alot of people don't use tape/or remove it during incub. cause it speeds up colonization. If i take the tape off are my jars gonna get all contaminated? Plus if the tapes off and you flip the jar wont some moister come out/or evaporate out of the holes when standing up straight. Whats the benefits in doin this? And if this questions been answered my bad..it seems like alot of people are gettin bitched at for there posts!

You don't need the tape if you use a dry top vermiculite layer. Water won't come out when you flip it unless there's standing water in the jar.

People get bitched at because occasionally they get real tired of answering repetetive questions. Yours wasn't too bad. I just hate the questions where people want you to explain every part of a grow to them.

I put masking tape over my holes...put a layer of alum foil over the lids...
then pressure cook them.

I wait a couple hours to let the pc cool down a bit...then pull the jars out and take the Alum foil off the top of the lids.

Then wait til the next day before inoculating them...so they are sure to be cooled down enough.

I pull back the tape and inoculate the jars with a spore syringe or a mycelium syringe...and put the tape back over the holes.

Then put the jars into my TIT incubator...and don't bother looking at them for 2 or 3 days.

When I see some mycelium growth about the size of a quarter...
I pull the tape off the jars and throw that away.
This seems to speed up the colonization of my jars.
My pf jars only take me 7 to 10 days to fully colonize.

The dry verm barrier will protect the substrate from becoming contaminated...
so you really don't need anything covering the holes if you don't want to.

I just prefer my method.
