Hey Moe,
I thought you got a new agar set-up for christmas, you even said you heard your girly order it. if you do have agar abilities, you need to use them. We will help.
anyone else?

i use jars with filter disks. i have only experimented w/ cubensis so i dunno about the higher strains, but the filter disks work great. in fact they work a little too great for me: i dont have a refirgerator that i can use for storing mushroom stuff in so i just let my agar jars keep growing. since there is proper gas exchange, the mycelium coats the *entire* jar sides and after a while it even fruits on its own (even in a dark incubator). its kinda neat but kinda annoying.

Hey Rebelmoon, do you also use plastic lids? And did you drill a hole and how big (3/8 or 1/2?). I got the plastic lids from Fungi Perfecti but I didn't get filter disks. Another supplier I found sells filter plugs, you drill a hole and it stuff it in, they are 3/8" or 1/2" by about 1/2" long. They are also much cheaper but I don't want to cheap out if filter disks are superior.

yeah i use plastic lids from the ball/kerr canning supply store (way cheaper than fp's product, you might even wanna retunr yer order and go w/ the canning company cuz the lids are identical). i dont have a drill but if you go to an auto shop you cab get them to drill a 3/8th inch hole in the lid for a few dollars. i have a 3/8th inch hole but i doubt that a larger one would be a problem. i dunno about plugs as ive only used disks. anyone else?
