taking prints
    #11338131 - 10/28/09 02:27 PM (8 years, 3 months ago)

I have always used wide mouth tiny mason jars to take prints with the lid replaced with tyvek with aluminum foil on the inside.  I would pressure cook it to ensure sterility but have read that you can just wipe everything down with alcohol and that is safe.  Any thoughts from fellow growers?

the more sterile, the better. foil with a glass turned upside down over it(all wiped with alcohol) has worked for me, though.

I have a small rubbermaid container, it's like 12x12x 2inches high.  I clean it our really good with bleach wipes, I then lay some foil down inside, I then place my caps and put the lid on the container.. The lid doesn't seal all the way which helps dry out the caps and gets them to drop the spores faster..

alright, so a a small rubbermaid would work well if i keep it in the glove box and leave the lid on loose?

You can put the lid on it cause they are never air tight, unless they are the ones that have a seal around the top.. I will post pictures in a minute of what I use.

i take em in a plain sterile jar and add 500ml sterile water when its time to noc.

its beautiful, after it drops, just put a fresh lid on.
stores perfect for me
