Colonization and Co2
    #780600 - 07/27/02 05:45 PM (16 years, 2 months ago)

I cant get a straight answer on this.
I read somewhere that colonizing mycellium love CO2 but then i also here people say leave the tape off of the holes in your lid for air exchange.
So what is it Air Exchange or Co2?

mycelium takes in oxygen and expels Co2. Whomever told you Mycelium loves C02 is lying

whether or not to tape holes is contreversial; it can make your jars more open to contams, but if you've got ramsey seals on them i'd go un-tapped since the colonization times are alot faster without.

air exchange is having a flow of air between the environment inside the jar and the area outside the jar. C02 is a gas called carbon dioxide., i think!

hope that helps

Yup! same goes for bulk substrates! I seal my compost tubs while they colonize and the mycelium SCREAMS through the compost in 7 days! then I give 'em air exchanges and lower temps and they pin within 10 days.
