Keep them in the fridge till you are ready to use.

Most hardware stores will carry canning jars. Try True Value if there's one near you.

Frank's has vermiculite -- I get it there when I need it. Home Depot should too.

Should be.  They might be a little dry if you didn't use tyvek or tape the holes...but if they're not dry and htey're not growing anything, they're fine.  :wink:

how can you not find canning jars... got mine from wal mart... also from a hardware store too... you can get them everywhere, vermiculite is hard to find... but i'm sure around this time of year if you look real real hard at your local like garden places you'll find it

I've never tried it. but i'm willing to bet you could mix powdered brown rice with peat moss and it would work.

Do you have access to a pressure cooker?
