Pint Jars for Double Verm
    #1843977 - 08/23/03 08:46 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Quick questions:

Wouldn't using pint jars be more sufficient than half pints if you will be doubling verm layers and dunking before first flush? If so, what would be the drawbacks of doing so?

Also, would adding more verm require more spore solution? Or would colonization be the same with the usual amount of spore solution?

you're doing the invitro double end casing tek right?

the only drawback to 1 pint jars as opposed to 1/2 pint jars is that it takes twice as much of everything (twice the substrate, twice the spore solution, twice the colonization time, etc)...although theoretically you also get twice the yield...

personally...i wouldn't do invitro casing...seeing the mycelium colonize the bottom of the jar is a good indicator of when to birth the jar and how could you see the bottom if theres a layer of verm there...just add the casing layer after birth...

Don't double the dry verm layer

The reason people use half pint is they colonize a lot faster thus less risk of contams

no, no more spore solution needed

I'm definitely going to stick with 1/2 pints because of the lengthy colonization involved with pint jars. Also not doubling the verm sounds like the way to go. It gets kind of confusing when you've read 100's of different experiments, you know. Thanks for clearing things up, I was a bit lost. ;-)

stick to half pints, put a little less brf substrate in the jars. I like the double dry verm layers since it helps with thorough colonization, I've noticed faster colonization too.
