1/4 Pint Jars?
    #1099440 - 11/30/02 11:12 PM (14 years, 8 days ago)

I aksed my friend to pick up some jars from the store for me, and he accidentally picked up 4 oz jars. If I am correct, this would be 1/4 pint jars. Would these still work? They seem as though they would colonize quicker, but it would take a ton of them to make a casing or to spawn on poo. Please correct me if I am wrong about my thoughts.

~Peace

If you use the correct ratios for the substrate's ingredients it should work.  Those will be tiny cakes though.  If you do this I wanna see pics of the cakes  :tongue:

I've never heard of anyone using four ounce jars. My experience tells me that the increased ratio of surface area to volume would cause them to dry out too fast to have an acceptable yield. Use them to store your dank in and buy some 1/2 pint jars to get started growing shrooms.

I was thinking of keeping them to do spore prints in, so I can make syringes.

If they are tapered you should use them for growing. You will get a much faster full colonization time.

Never used 1/4 oz jars either, but I would imagine you'd get very small fruits. If I were you I would go out and buy the right thing. Save yourself the agrevation.

Ahh yes what am I thinking. I assumed that you are going to case. Dont use those jars unless you will case. Sorry about that.
