A couple question?
    #655446 - 05/31/02 11:01 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

1 i have 12 jars of brf. I used duct tape over the holes. Tence i had only duct tape to use. Is that a problem, should i remove over the oven and put like medical tape or something more breathable? The jars are about 30% colonized. They have been growing for 2 weeks now they seen like they outta be growing a little faster since they are ecudar and B+.

Thanks

You used duct tape in the pressure cooker? That makes a sticky mess when heated... use foil, you need SOME gas exchange...

Did you mix verm to the BFR? Did you add the proper water?

Turn the jars upside-down, and make an incubator.

k man, what ya gotta do, is cover the top of the jars with tinfoil while in the pressuer cooker or in a pot of boiling water... taht way no drops of water can go directly into the jars.

did you read the PF teck??? go re-read it if you already have.
o, and you jars could be growing super slow if you packed the substrate into the jars. The first batch of jars i did took over 2 months to colonize cause i pressed the BRF/verm into the jars.

good luck...

o, also the jars dont realy need anything over the holes if you used a vermiculite seal..so if you did, take the tape off the holes.
Peace.
