Tight or loose?
    #479467 - 12/04/01 02:18 PM (19 years, 2 months ago)

I was wondering if it is better to keep the jar lids tight or loose while incubating? I have heard pro's and con's for both so I wanted to see what everyone else thought. Any info would be appreciated. Peace.

Loose. This will promote air exchange.

Puscle, could this be why my jars are colonizing so slowly?

Yes, but the # 1 suspect is usually dry substrate.
