1. Putting tape on them is optional. Lots of people don't use tape and they don't have any problems. With tape as growth progresses closer to 100% colonisation the CO2 will build up and slow down the growth. So if you do tape up be sure to take it off later on.

2. You birth when you reach 100% covered. That does not include the dry vermiculite layer. I've had problems where the bottoms have been far too flour'y to be colonised so if yo have that problem you can put them in the terrarium earlier and the mycellium should then take the uncovered part over quickly but generally as a rule unless you have some problems do not put them in until you atleast have 100%. Some wait for pins to appear for birthing.

No offence but for the second question its answered in the mmgg isn't it?

I have read that if you flip your jars upside down after ster. and before innoc. it will loosen the sub. on the bottom of the jar and the mycellum can colonize that area alot faster. whether this is true or not i dont know i just have read others talking about it.

To reach sanity one must experience insanity first,ENJOY!!

Well you could apply "professional" grade masking tape before boiling/pressure cooking to avoid getting added water on the inside of your jars, then poke the syringe through the holes after sterilization for a more air tight hole, though sometime down the line you may have to remove the tape in order for gas exchange. Also birthing usually wait until 100% colonized or if/when the growth slows down to almost a stand still (no growth for about a week). When birthing without 100% colonization make sure to scrape off any additional uncolonized substrate. The mycelium should be developed enough to endure some scraping, and it much decreases chance for infection. Good luck!
