is foil neccessary?
    #852545 - 08/30/02 06:30 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

i just noticed that some jars with holes in the lid are colonizing as ones with no holes are not showing any growth yet. i just took the foil off thinking the holes helped it grow faster. is this a good idea? if its the reason they are colonizing then is there a way to help the jars without holes?

the foil is there to protect the mycelium from the massive falling of contaminants. it is not directly protecting the mycelium: for this reason you have the vermiculite layer and the fact the glass is perfectly clean from that point to the top. So it really isnt THAT important to have an alu foil on top, but it really can be of help.

I think its irrelevant, because the only reason the mycelium can halt is the lack of oxygen. but then, its impossible to seal a glass with alu foil. so i think the fact some jars are ok and some are slow-movers has nothing to do with the alu foil on top.

My opinion
