1/4 Pint Jars
    #2392460 - 03/01/04 10:02 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I have read in various places about using 1/4 pint jars. I was wondering what the advantages and disadvantages of using these instead of the traditional 1/2 pint jars in the PF tek.
One advantage I can think of is faster colonization.
A disadvantage may be less flushes because of less substrate.
Am I correct in assuming this? :mushroom2:
The reason I ask is I have found some perfect tapered 1/4 pint jars and would like to use them.

My friend who grows these things has never used 1/4 pint jars, but he thinks that you'd be right about the quicker colonization and smaller flushes.  He could be wrong though.  Good luck with them, in any case  :smile:

You would most definately see a faster colonization time. If you cased a few of them you wouldn't notice a differance in the size of the flush, but on the other hand if you fruited them as cakes there may be a differance.

just crumble and case the apropriate amount of substrate...

faster colonization AND no loss in quantity!
