are 350mL jars okay?
    #11267756 - 10/17/09 10:03 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

i started putting together some supplies for my first grow a couple of days ago. now, after searching through every grocery store in my home town from end to end, i came to the conclusion that half pint, shoulderless jars with tapered edges, really aren't that easy to come by.

i went through my pantry and managed to find a whole heap of empty coffee jars, but they're 350mL (when filled right to the top), and they're definitely not shoulderless. so i don't think i'll be doing cakes like i'd originally intended.

do you guys think the jars will be okay? i've read that full pint jars don't colonize so well but these are a little smaller...
oh, and the jars have glass lids with a separable plastic air seal which could act as a lid on it's own. just a little worried about it melting during sterilization.

also, does the free spore ring of europe accept australian currency?
(or if there are any australian's that feel like helping out a newbie and happen to have a spare print which they wouldn't mind trading for some cash...you know.)

just one final question for now. since i wont be able to get the whole cakes out of the jars i'm planning on using, i've been toying with the idea of spawning the jars to horse poo. is this a bad idea for a first grow? and does it stink when you're pasteurizing it?

that's all. sorry for the long and poorly structured post.

sorry didn't mean to break the rules, but postage to Australia costs more than the prints themselves. bit of a pain.
i imagine i'll end up buying from sporeworks anyways but saving a bit of coin is always nice.

did you read the market place rules ? shroomery member are not suposed to sell spore to other member. The main reason is to encourage people to buy from sponsor. Cus if sponsor do not sell spore, they won't give money to shroomery and this comunity will not be viable anymore!

i havent read the marketplace rules. the marketplace only becomes available after a certain amount of posts i think...
cant remember anything about it in the rules i read. i know you're not supposed to link to a supplier that isn't a sponsor.
i may be wrong, perhaps i need to read the forum rules again.

what substrate are you intending to use in the jars?
WBS will crumble better than PF.

I think the major problem with full pints is that there is too much space free for too long, increasing your chances of contaminants.

You could try trading for spores, (bartering) as i don't think the site has a problem with that, but read the marketplace rules, just to be sure :laugh:  other than that, you're completely unable to source a cow paddock? :smile:
now, check ur  :pm:

the freedom of speech doesn't exist here at the shroomery. apparently. alot has changed around here.

hey you know what! fuck it!. ask for and say what ever you want man.


has for answering your ?.

you can use the jars you have, and spawn bulk substrate like your talking about. It should work fine. I might try to spawn some straw alone first thou. poop can be tricky at first, getting the moister right and proper pasteurization. can sometimes be tricky. you could do it, but i'd say rly do your research if thats what you want to do.

also in that case you could just buy the jars around town since you plan on spawning a bulk substrate. I'd do the bulk grow it's not that hard rly. I never grew cakes.

haha, i live in a rural "city". so sourcing a cow paddock is no real issue. i also have a relative with a horse which is why i was considering horse poo.
i haven't read anything on WBS. i've just been slowly chipping away at PF tek and a few different casings and stuff. there's quite an overwhelming amount of information on this site lol.

cheers for all the replies guys. this community kicks arse :grin:.

(edit: fixed a typo)
