1/2 pint or 1 pint.
    #2920559 - 07/23/04 03:11 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

im getting ready to start my first grow today and i got one question. what is better to use, 1/2 pint cakes or 1 pint cakes. the tutorial uses 1/2 pint cakes and it says that one 10 cc syringe can do about 10-12 of them. im guessing if i used 1 pint cakes then i could do about 5-6 of them. im gonna be using the Poor Mans Pod. So does anybody have any experience or words of advice. thankx!

1/2 pint

I (like 5 minutes ago) read that pint jars take a month or two to colonize completely.

there's no point to using a pint other than casing... 1/2 pints colonize quicker and if you're using the PMP, I don't know if full pints will fit. Remember, you gotta leave room for your new friends to grow

alright im gonna stick to the 1/2 pint because they colonize faster. but does anybody have any idea which would yield the most off of one 10cc syringe? 10 1/2 pints or 5 pints? just curious.

now my only obsticle is obtaining some geolite stuff.

based off logic (not experience), 10 1/2 pints would. Althought they lose surface area on the sides, they have DOUBLE the top area (since htere are two cakes, and the 1pint has only one top)

that doesnt apply if you are casing, though...

The difference isnt only colonization time...one must take into account the increased chance of contams due to partial sterilization, especially if you dont have a PC. Also, its likely that the pint jars youll get will not be tapered, so youll have to dig the cakes out with a spoon and case them.

I don't know about that...where I went to get my jars (Big Lots. Yeah! 12 jars for $5~) had tapered pints

well i just went to wall mart. it was great. i go to get 2 rubbermaid things(one for fruiting, smaller one for incubation) and i turn around and there are boxes of 12 1/2 pint glass tapered jars. it was awesome, i was even able to put them in the rubbermaids to find the right size one i would need. also got a good digital read out temp/humidity that records highs and lows.

i still have yet to find any geolite/hydroton....i did find lavarocks...will those work?

I got some lava rocks. asked about them, everyone said they'd be good.

Wash em first, though. Hose em down or something.
