First of all. This is my first post. Thank you for welcoming me to Mycotopia, though I have been lurking these forums, gathering info for my own pursuits, for years.


I was considering switching to micropore tape for the GE holes on my mono tubs instead of stuffing polyfill after colonization has finished. I'm sure it will work considering I've used it on hundreds of jars in the past. Any thoughts on this? Will it limit the size of end-product due to lack of enough GE? Should I double tape over the lower holes that are at the level of the substrata to provide more resistance than the higher holes on the side near the lid?


These tubs still get a FAE once a day anyways.


If I am not explaining this well enough just point me in the right direction.

I use tape on the bottom hole And poly on the bigs ones up top . But that’s just me.
