Covering holes of 1/2 pint jars?
    #543155 - 02/07/02 01:42 AM (15 years, 1 month ago)

I was wondering if I should cover the holes of my colonizing jars with tape to keep in the moisture. I read that I am supposed to leave them open to promote gas exchange but I've seen that a few of you seem to think that they should be covered. Any thoughts?

you can leave the tape off and put them upside down so all the gaseous biproduct settles out the jars but sometimes if you didn't start with enough water they get a little to dry before they are done colonizing which slows things down quite a bit, if you leave them covered they usually do alright, just do some tests with how much water your substrate can hold then you will be able to leave the holes uncovered

I keep my holes taped til i get about 40% colonization inside my jars.

Then i pull the tape off.
