Excellent. Wouldn't I want untapered jars? (maybe I'm getting them confused, but I thought tapered means the jar closes up towards the top so it'd be hard to get out the colonized cakes) I found some jars that look like the ones I've seen on the PF tek and the rest of the site at the grocery store on the air force base near me, but didn't realize walmart would have them.

The thing about the tape...I knew that before...glad you reminded me because I would have totally forgotten.

I thought I needed to put them in a dark place, too, but I read somewhere that light isn't harmful...hrm.

What's the advantage of coco coir added to the top layer of vermiculite? If I used the Poorman's Pod TEK, I'd get all that bubbly stuff from the pet store, right? Also, if I was going to use casing, then I'd just do it like normal except with no top? The top layer would protect the stuff in the middle, right?

Well what I'm saying is after I've broken up the cakes when casing and made a bottom layer of vermiculite, put the broken up cakes over it, and covered it with another layer of vermiculite, do I need to cover my entire container with saran wrap or whatnot, or will the casing protect it?

Also, I'm looking at growing the ecuadorian strain, and am tempted to order off of TLG (the special is a free B+ or creeper syringe), and I'm not really too knowledgable about strains. I know B+ and Ecuadorian are both beginer-friendly but I'd not even seen creeper listed anywhere until recently and don't know anything about it...seems neat, though. Any suggestions?

You can find verm & perlite at feed stores also.
Hope that helps.

Just something to think about- I just birthed cakes from my first grow. I did 12 jars total. Six jars had 3 layers of foil as a lid and to innoculate I lifted up the last 2 and punched the needle through the first one. The other six I used the lid that came with the jar and punched holes in it like it says to do in the PF Tek. I used a single layer of foil over top of the lid to keep water out during sterilization. I boiled them, no pressure cooker. In the end the jars that had nothing but foil as lids colonized way faster. Almost a full week ahead of the other six, and a lot more pins developed once I introduced them to light.
So Im not using the jar lids anymore from here on out. Good luck.
