Default wort aeration and yeast starters

I am making a starter using an stirplate. I usually aerate the wort with pure oxygen for 45-60 seconds before I pitch the starter. Since I am using a stir plate for the starter, should I not be aerating the wort for as long or is this ok? Thanks.

Aerate as you normally would.

I'm not sure why you think you need to aerate if you have a stirplate. It seems like an unnecessary step to me.

I don't aerate the starter with the pure oxygen, I aerate the wort before pitching the starter.

Lol. Got it. Makes sense now.

As wyzazz said. Aerate as you normally would.

Ok cool. Is 60 seconds a good amount for pure oxygen?

I would imagine that 60 seconds is more than enough with Pure O2 and a diffusion stone.
