to tape or not to tape
    #587359 - 03/23/02 03:40 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

I am a newbie to this shroom growing thing. And I was wondering a few things that some of you might be able to help with. I innoculated 12 1/2 pint jars 4 weeks and 2 days ago avg temp 70 to 75 degrees. And another 12 with mazateca 4 days ago. I used the PF Tek techniqe with vermeculite and BRF. My questions are this:

1. It seems like the initial batch is taking a long time (only 3 are close to full coverage) is this good or bad? Any tips for the future?
2. I think mine are bruised, does this affect fruit growth?
3. I taped the tops of the Jars after I sterilized them for the duration of growth. I have read conflicting reports of the necessity to tape or not to tape. What do you guys think about taping the tops of the Jars?

Thanks for any help you guys can give me! This is a great website, keep up the good work!

4 weeks isnt bad considering your incubation temp is below ideal. my friend used to leave the tape on his jars the entire time, maybe taking them off when he flipped them, but not normally.
