Im new also but ill give u a run down of what i did and it seems to be working fine. So far a perfect 12 out of 12 colonized. I tightened the lid on the jars tight but not too tight..keep the tape or aluminum foil over the holes....i sterlized my jars 2 weeks in advance and worked fine

Hey there,

I don't usually use foil when I boil-sterilize, I just cover the holes with tape.  I have two pots that can easily hold 12 halfies each, so they all get done in one shot.  Two burners + two pots = 24 cleeeeean halfies in about 10 hours.  I usually boil for 6-7 hrs and let 'em cool in the pots for another 3-4.

I wouldn't leave the tape on when you innoculate, you might clog the needle or shove contams in the syringe that were sitting on the lid.

As for sterilizing and leaving them for a while.. sure, you _can_, but the longer you wait, the dryer they get.  Which means slower colonization times, and if you plan on casing, you'll probably get much smaller fruits unless you dunk.  Water is hella important for the shrooms.

Good luck, write up a grow log and let us know how it goes!  :grin:

Hmm.. I imagine you could stack them, since it's not the boiling that really sterilizes them, but the steaming.. I've never really tried stacking since I never had to. How many halfies can you fit in the pot without stacking? And what are you planning to do, cakes or case? If you're doing cakes you can add new ones to the terrarium as you're ready, as long as you're clean and careful. If you're making casings, you only can use as little as one cake but you won't really need more than 3 for an average sized casing. Let me know if I can be of any more help.
