Canning jars in South Africa
    #1729768 - 07/19/03 09:28 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Hi I'm a newbie grower and want to use the PF tek to produce my first 'crop'.

I haven't had problems finding vermiculite or BRF, but does anyone know where to find 1/2 pint canning jars in south africa? I've been looking around for a few weeks now and haven't found anything.

Is there any kind of alternative I can use, eg drinking glasses sealed with tinfoil?

Oh, and has anyone ordered from spores.za.net?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Nick.

My friend has not used drinking glasses for cultivation but he's heard that they work just fine.

He recommends using sponsers of the Shroomery for spores, etc.. They are reliable.

sorry to not have replied to your PM nick! was testing my first flush out in nylstroom = AMAZING experience. anyway, ja, i struggled to find 1/2 "pint" jars too so i used what i could find which were like the 1/2 litre consol jobs: you wait really long for those to fully colonize dude! it helps to put just plain verm in the lower half and then your substrate = colonizes A LOT quicker.
recently though, i see p'n'pay are starting to sell jam in exactly the size jar youre looking for, yep, tapered lip and all!
let us know how it goes!
ciao!

Go plastic, They must have 236 ml plastic containers with the snap on lids at your grocery store. As long as they say pp 5 on the bottom they will work well.

Consol does sell half pint jars put they are not wide mouth and you guess what happened after full colonization I had to break them. Did use the pint jars once just took 4 ever and is more prone to contam.  Busy with WBS and bought some from P&P and is going great but would recommend you start with PF-tek to get the feel of things :thumbup:

you guys are responding from a thread from 2003, talking to the OP like he's still listening a decade later.
