Oxygen during incubation?
    #4693369 - 09/22/05 01:45 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Whats up everyone?!

I have a question regarding cultivation.

I currently have tape covering the holes of the lids of the jars that have been inoculated.

Do I keep the holes covered up or does more air need to be let in?

I've read in places that it is ok to keep them uncovered while others sa to keep them covered. . . . which is it?

I'm worried about contamination.

what kind of jars? if its PF style jars, the protective verm layer at the top will usually suffice and you can take the tape off.

Do you have the layer of plain dry vermiculite on the top? if so, you can remove the tape.

Yes. I have a layer of vermiculite. Sorry for not being more specific. I'm using the P. Fanaticus guide. I had success about 7 years ago and wanted to try it again. Just don't remember if I used tape on the holes or not.

So it sounds like it is ok to remove the tape. What about using a loose cover of tin foil on the lid?

I'm just parranoid about bacteria

Remove the tape once your 1/2 pints are halfway colonized. The verm will keep contams out if you did it correctly.
