Colonization - Oxygen?
    #585165 - 03/21/02 12:21 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

Currently a guy I know has 12 jars, that started about 4 days ago with the PESA strain. The lids are very tight, and the punched holes have been resealed with tape. My question to all of you is: Do we need to loosen the lids on the jars or let some air in? We currently have them incubating in about 3 inches of water, with the heater set to about 83, could the humidity be over 70%? Let me know if we're doin something wrong, or if I'm just getting impatient...

Next go give this a try...


Working like a champ for my pet Llama, and he just made new jars last night with 3 smaller polyfill(ed) holes in each lid.

Good luck,
