a couple questions
    #3586425 - 01/05/05 11:34 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Question 1:
Hi I'm new at mushroom growing and I was using this guide - http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/7919/pag/1 for growing. I only have encountered one problem which is finding the ? Pint Tapered Wide Mouth Canning Jars. I can find them but they aren't tampered, there just tall. After Mycelial Growth (going into The Fruiting Chamber) Is it possible to set the cakes on there sides instead of standing them up and still grow successful mushrooms? I only have a 6 inch high container I don't think a not tampered jar will do.

Question 2:
How many ? Pint Jars can 1 Spore Syringe cover?

Please help !! Thanks

You want to find NON tapered jars so that the cakes slide out easily after colonization. You can set the cakes on the sides, top, bottom, doesn't matter. You can even leave them in the jars and grow them invitro. Your mushrooms may look a little deformed if they grow in a very confined space but they will still grow nonetheless.

1 Spore syringe typically inoculates 6 1/2 pint jars (2cc's in each jar) but, you may only get 4 or 5 jars out of your first syringe as it is common for those who haven't done it before to accidentally squirt too much solution into the jars on thier first few tries.

Does the height or width matter of the jar?

Nope, do a search for "invitro pinning" and you'll see some pics. The mushies make thier own room.

Urban walmarts tend not to have canning jars, so I checked a more rural one and found a better selection. Also try a farm-supply.

or order online http://store.yahoo.com/flyyourflag/alcorbal12wi4.html
