Easy Germination Question
    #939434 - 10/07/02 12:09 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Dudes!

I need to know what should be on top of my PF-Tek jars! Right now I have two layers of tin foil secured with an elastic band. Now I'm wondering if I'm supposed to have anything covering the tops. Thanks.

If you are asking what to cover the top of the substrate I would say maybe a verm barrier. If you are asking about what to cover jar with I would say a lid with holes in it or poly fill. Need to be more specific :confused:

The question is what to cover the jar with. I have a top with 4 nail-holes in it covered in 2 layers of tin foil and fastened with a rubber band. I doubt any air can get in. Should it be able to?

You want to let a little excess gas out of the jars while they are colonizing the substrate. Just looen your lids and see if that helps or maybe take the tape off one of the holes.....be sure and keep your area clean when inspecting the jars.

But I don't have any tape on it. Should I just take off the tin foil all together to reveal the four holes to the air?

Cover jars with foil before PC'in. Leave tin foil on until you have your jars in sterile transfer chamber, inoculate then tape...done :grin:

AHHH! So there should be no air transfer while I'm waiting for mycellium?

If you notice your myc growth slowing down, you might need to let a little gas out of the jars by way of loosening the lid or removing tape off one or more of the holes in your lid and setting it on the lid. You do not want air getting in the jars only gettin out....
