I know you guys are tired of my newbie ass asking all these questions but hey if you can't come here for help then the land of shrooms is doomed!!

Anyway, I have read in some TEKS that after innocculation you should cover the holes in the jar with tape, foil, etc. I also read that the dry verm. on top is enough to keep the nasties out. Air exchange is good for mycellium growth so should i cover them or let the Verm. keep out the germ??

Thanks, Chemkid

In my experience it isn't necessary to cover up the holes used to innoculate the jars. The layer of dry vermiculite will be sufficient.

I usually cover the holes until the mycelium gets going for a few days and then I uncover them.

The layer of Verm will protect against contams. Don't bother with tape, just cover the jars in tinfoil. This will retract contams floating in the air.
