Cracked Jars
    #1148382 - 12/17/02 10:06 AM (18 years, 7 months ago)

I'm making my first attempt at growing mushrooms, and I've run into a bit of a problem. I don't have a pressure cooker so I'm boiling my jars. I started them boiling and then rolled and smoked a joint on my back step. Then I went back upstars and all the fucking watre had boiled off. I poured more water in (bad move) and cracked 3 of the 4 jars. Fuck. So I'm wondering if I should bother innoculating the 3 cracked jars or if they are juat a waste of time. They are just small cracks and the jars are in one piece. Also should the exposure to just heat for a few miunutes have fucked up the subtrate? Thanks!

You could probably get away with applying a strip of tape along where the crack is and still get away with innoculations. :smirk:
Just make sure the substrate doesnt come into contact with open air , and make sure your jar hasnt been dried out.

Well the thing is.... you can't.
How long was it on, without any water?

I think they might hav gone a couple minutes maybe up to 5 without water. The subtrate isn't suppsoed to be a goo is it? Cause it was in one of my jars that cracked bad so the water form the continued boiling leaked in. It was pretty nasty, gooey shit, like glue made form flower and water. I dunno what to think about the rest of them.

As long as the crack doesn't go completely through the jar, you should be fine. If it does, you may still get by with a little tape as long as the jar doesn't fall apart.
