Lid for mycelium solution, what kind?!?!
    #987798 - 10/23/02 10:52 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Could someone advise me as to the best type lid to use for a mycelium solution concocted in half pint/pint jar?? Should I just use the typical nail hole punched in the lid and leave foil over it as it incubates, or use a polyfill lid, or what?? Thanks!!

Put a cut up oven bag where the foil would be.Poke a few holes on one side.On the other side poke a hole in a lid.Now you have holes on opposite ends,in the lid and in the oven bag.Put polyfil in the lids hole.If the lid is plastic you can use microwave,i think thats the best way.If you are pressure cooking use foil,but don't put foil in the microwave.Also put bits of glass in each jar,so when you shake it up the mycelium will break apart very easily.Hold the jar so the holes are up when you shake,don't get the top of the oven bag wet.SHAKE VERY SLOW AND EASY.

Would it be ok to use a plastic lid w. a self healing rubber injection site, like they sell at micron magick?? this probably wouldn't offer a whole lot of air exchange, but does that matter all that much?? Petri dishes are sealed so perhaps no, any advice???

You would have to leave an old needle in the rubber part or put a hole somewhere else on the lid.It needs air exchange in the microwave.It will blow up.

Yeah, we figured that one out the hard way. Sterilized it, let it cool over night, stuck a syringe in and it sucked the whole thing down!!! Oh well, it was only 4 cc's. Will be allright now though, or should i Put another hole in for air exchange??
