How long will sterilized jars be viable for inoculation?
    #3162960 - 09/22/04 01:18 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

To celebrate my friends very first harvest I would love to gift him with a dozen or so pre-mixed/pre-sterilized jars so that after his first print he can go right into another grow without all the hassle. Obviously my question is, if I make these jars myself, how long will they be viable for inoculation, would i have to make them all the day before his harvest or could I make them well ahead of time? Are they just going to contam and waste my hard work?

They should last quite a while just keep holes taped and store them in a closed container to keep mold sporeloads low. What a nice friend you are!!!! Welcome my friend!!!!

Ive used them up to 2 weeks after and they were fine.

They'll be fine; I gave out some jars as gifts myself (already innoculated though, just told my friends to keep them in a dark warm place and let them grow invitro)

As long as no contaminants can get in (taped holes), then the only limiting parameter is how quickly the jars dry out since masking tape will let moisture out of the holes

Seal the holes with electrical tape and tighten the lids; this will keep them viable just about indefinitely.  Storing them in the moisture of a refrigerator is good insurance in case your tape or lids don't seal completely.

Note: If you seal your jars airtight, then store them in a refrigerator, the inside of the jar will cool to a slight vacuum.  Wait for them to warm back up to room temperature before you remove the tape for inoculation or they may suck in contaminants when you remove the tape and relieve the vacuum.

:mushroom2: Good Luck!
