LC Tek Question
    #8800105 - 08/20/08 10:52 AM (10 years, 1 month ago)

I started two LC jars this past Saturday and so far so good. I actually saw a slight amount of growth in one jar yesterday and growth in the other jar today. Granted, the growth isnt much right now but it soon will be.

Anyway, I had done a lot of reading and found that some of the LC teks say I need to inject air into the jars every few days and then shake and others say I only need to shake the jars every few days after growth starts to brake up the myc.

My question is do I need to add air to the jars or not?

Thanks for any input.

Probably just shake it up every day. I use micropore tape over the injection site, allowing some air exchange. If you're worried about it, maybe thats the way to go?

My injection sites are self healing so the lids are air tight. I did use a filtered syringe to relieve the vacuum in both of the jars before I injected the spores.

I don't have a problem injecting clean air into the jars I was just wondering if it is needed or not.

your mucelium will survive in the sealed jars. alot of people store their favorite cultures this way for over a year. the vaccume dosent hurt anything. given a filter only speeds growth.
