1/2 pints = really damn small!
    #1900089 - 09/09/03 10:41 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Holy crap, I've seen a lot of pictures on the shroomery over the years, but I had no idea just how tiny half pints actually are. Are they actually worth using to grow invitro? I got two 12-packs of 'em, can't return them now..

I suppose I could just fruit the cakes but I was really hoping to try invitro. Is there even enough room in there to grow invitro?

1/2 pints are a great place to start..dont get discouraged, you can get some pretty amazing results with 1/2 pints.

Hellfreak:  'Cause I already bought them and can't return them. 

Greg:  Thanks  :wink:.  But I'm just wondering if it'd be pointless or not to grow invitro in them, because fruiting cakes would be much more obvious in my setting.

Because 1/2 pints are usually less prone to contam, giving the novice a larger margin of error.

>>>'Cause I already bought them and can't return them.

The 1/2 pint jars will have use for shroom work down the track, from petri dish substitutes (baby jars for me), spore print making & mycelium cultures. I can't get them in Oz, but they look like neat jars. You'll be recycling them in due time.

Well, I guess it is just paranoia of contam, I just started with pints and have lost only 2 out of 48 jars. I keep a clean home though.

Contamination is a concern, as I'm living in a newly built apartment with four other college-aged housemates, all about as responsible and tidy as four male college-aged housemates.  :tongue:

Luckily they're not the talkative type and they're fairly open-minded, especially my roommate (shroommate?  lol).

I'd rather be safe with the half pints, that's anoher good reason to use 'em.  And I didn't even consider printing, duh.  Good call on that.

Oh, and thanks for the helpful comment, Jack. :thumbup: :rolleyes:

i forget what it's called and i can't find a link to it, but it's by hippe3. after your half pint jars are done colonizing, birth them into a pint jar with four holes in the lid and a small pvp ring to keep the cakes from covering the wholes. screw the jar onto the lid, and place the jar on a mesh shelf or anyways to keep the wholes free and clear. the jar makes a mini graw chamber i'm going to see if i can find the link to the tek.

I know the tek you're talking about, I've seen the log for it. Supposedly it's a pretty effective way to grow, and it looks easy enough. Still, I don't have pint jars and I don't really want to go out and buy two dozen of 'em. I think I'm gonna grow a dozen invitro (by knockin' 'em up and putting the jars back into the box they came in, in a nice warm spot) and making a few casings with the other dozen. Most average casings are what, three pints? So I could make two six-half-pint casings, or four of 'em if I use all 24 jars. I could always just fruit cakes too, but I'm hoping to keep everything low key.

Of course, by "I", I mean Armond, the apartment mascot pet skunk.
