Micropore tape is a medical tape that is breathable and commonly used in mycology to cover breathing holes on petri dishes and jars.

In mycology, micropore tape is often used to cover the breathing holes on the lids of petri dishes or other containers used for growing mushroom cultures. The tape allows for gas exchange while preventing contaminants such as bacteria or mold spores from entering the container and contaminating the culture.
Micropore tape is preferred over other types of tape for this purpose because it is breathable, allowing for the exchange of gases such as oxygen and carbon dioxide, which are necessary for the growth of mushroom cultures. Other types of tape, such as duct tape or electrical tape, are not breathable and can lead to reduced oxygen levels and poor growth in the cultures.
When using micropore tape in mycology, it is important to ensure that the tape is sterile before application to prevent contamination. The tape should also be replaced periodically to ensure continued gas exchange and prevent the buildup of moisture or other contaminants on the tape surface.
