Vermiculite with WBS??
    #2297913 - 02/03/04 05:39 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

question.... a friend of mine is using the wild bird seed bulk spawn technique, but has no ty vek material. they were wondering if they could use vermiculite or perlite, like with the pf cake method. or maybe there is some sort of material lying around theyre house that they could use instead.

Also.... they were wondering if canning jars are the only kind of jars they could use. they have other kinds...and in reference to the lip being bigger or the same size as the rest of the jar....if they are planning on casing...would it matter???

they millet is already soaked.....the preassure cooker is ready to go....all they need is your wisdom.

peace, and, thank you. the ghost

For filter material, you can use poly-fil as Mr. Carter pointed out (wallyworld) ,or as fee said, tyvek (post office). IMHO tyvek is the choice.

As far as the jars go, you can use any jar as long as it can withstand the PC and you can get the spawn out of the jar.

Good Luck :thumbup:

If it doesn't shatter or crack or in any other way compromise it's atmospheric integrity, you're good to go.

I use half gallon canning jars with widemouths....i have to crumble and crush the cake to get it out. Use gloves, wash hands and forearms throughly, you'll be fine.
