1 pint jars! Couple questions.
    #2326231 - 02/12/04 12:02 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

A FOAF finally got the items needed to start growing, however this FOAF baught pint jars instead of 1/2 pint jars and is wondering if it would be best to fill up the jar half way as if it was a 1/2 pint jar, or fill up all the jar. Also, if full is the best way, will 1cc per full 1 pint jar be enough and how long should colonization be? Heard there is a rather larger delay to fully colonize full pint jars. Any help\advice is greatly appreciated. TY :thumbup:

my friends first couple of grows were with pint..it takes a little longer..but its all cool...im assuming that your friend has orderd a syringe...so he has to be somewhat sparing with it...the more you use the more points for germination=faster colonization. just make sure you keep the temp and 86..and all will be well.

Yes, this FOAF ordered an EQ syringe, 10cc. So how many pint jars do you think should be inoculated? Since a little more per jar is better should 4 jars, 2cc per jar be best? And save the other 2cc to produce some liquid growth medium for the near future?

ive done pint jars without any problems. i used about 3 cc's per jar, 4 inoculation points. i only lost one to contamination out of 12, and the pints were only about 4 days behind my half pints. if your using a good incubator setup, you should have no trouble with pints. i loaded mine a little over 3/4 of the way up. make sure those things can breathe though.

That might be wasting spores if your using that much, but its up to you. My friend inoculates quart jars (grain) with only 1cc. Thing is, with grains you can shake the jar, so previously established mycelium is distributed around the jar, thus providing more points for colonization.

As far as pints go, my friend has had sucess using 1/4cc in each of the 4 holes he had in the lids.

1cc per quart jar? Wow. This FOAF will be using a organic brown rice flour + vermiculite. So should he go with 1cc per jar, or 2 do you think?
