1/2 pint jars.. Where to find in the US
    #1225184 - 01/17/03 04:07 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Hey everyone. I'm about to start my first grow.. just waiting on the spores to come in. Anyway, i'm having a little bit of trouble finding half pint jars.. I've found 1 pint jars and quart jars at walmart but no half pint. Can someone tell me a place that sells them? Thanks..

P.S. The shroomery Rocks!

Check

Dollar General (or any dollar store)


thats the only place i could find mine out of season. Its worth a try, also why not use pints they are just as good. Make sure u use the tapered(widemouth) jars if u are doing Cakes.
Good Luck.
Peace.

Many here have reported that a regular drinking glass can be used!!

cover with coffee filter and rubber band, and cover again with tin foil!

" In case you can't find any at all that is!!

Thanks everyone.  I don't expect my spores before Monday or Tuesday of next week.  Let's hope i can find what i need  :grin:  One question though.  If i use full pint jars, do i completely fill them with substrate?  Or just half the jar?  Thanks!

Cool, but i'm curious. What are the drawbacks to using full pint jars? Just longer colonization times? Or is there a greater risk of contams?? It just seems to me that more mycelium == more shrooms.. so if people recommend 1/2 pint jars, there must be a reason. Anyone know?? Thanks.

Actually both. A longer colonization period provides a larger window for contaminants.

I got mine at True Value. Most hardware stores should carry em, but they may be seasonal.

When I used half pints I found them at Winn-Dixie. They have them year round I believe. Of course, I haven't looked in a year or so.

Thanks for all of the replies. I'll be sure to check all of those places. I'd really like to use 1/2 pints rather than 1 pints since this is my first grow. Thanks again shroomers!!

from the FAQ:

Using 1 pint jars or larger with the PF-tek means the time to colonize is increased to a point where it is no longer worth it when weighing in the added colonization time as well as the additional risk of potential contamination (in its slower colonization times). It is more generally regarded as "the law of diminishing returns." There have been reports of successful PF-tek recipes used in 1 pint jars, but this is the exception and not the norm.

There is nowhere to buy them. I have looked and every place that would carry them is out of stock for 3-4 weeks.

I know all kinds of places:
Orchard Supply
Vons
Walmart
Safeway
Albertsons
Any other grocery type store and several places online

...Weapons are meant for destruction,
and thus are avoided by the wise.
Only as a last resort
will a wise person use a deadly weapon.
If peace is her true objective
how can she rejoice in the victory of war?
Those who rejoice in victory
delight in the slaughter of humanity.
Those who resort to violence
will never bring peace to the world...
