Wrong Jar - tappered head. What now??
    #3678498 - 01/25/05 05:26 PM (12 years, 30 days ago)

Hi,

Im new.. on the forum and with the growin'. I did everything right this time and am seeing lovely white allover the cake inside the jar.

The problem is.. I just found out. The jars are just slightly tappered in at the top. Just enough to make it impossible to slide out the cakes. I cant believe this happened!! I was soooo careful, very deceptive jars.

So... what have others done in this situation... Carefully break the glass? Other ingenious ideas would be great.

Btw this place is amazing.. and some of you folks are entertaining as hell (..and I know now what jars to use now and forever)

Ack, It's happened to me before. Well if you're planning on making a casing then you can just kinda break it up inside the jar to get it out since it won't really matter. On the other hand if this is your first grow and you're plannin on doing cakes, then breaking the jar might be your only option (Any one else have any ideas?). I just broke the glass as carefully as I could when I did. Hope everything works out! :smile:

Read up on "the Hammer Tek"!  :lol:

Or take a clean sterile spoon and case them if you dont want to mess with broken glass. Read 101 casing tek then, I believe Joshua made it.

Stay with the cake for your first grow. If you jump to casings, you might get frustrated. Break the jar. JMO

if its not 100% colonized then you might have a chance of some shrinkage to get it out. but hey hammers work in this case just becarefull with the glass all over.

I did the same thing my first grow, I ended up cutting it into 5 sections to get it out and didn't case. I had two semicircle cakes and a couple of rectangles to go into the grow chamber. It ended up fruiting fine.

This is not my first grow! :grin:

A casing is still a casing after 5 months, it wont get easier. Just follow the guidelines in the TEK's and everyone who does it should be fine.
Its no rocket science.. :wink:

You can still use the jars, you'll just have to do casings. They're easy and provide more shrooms than cakes alone would. The first time I attempted to grow, I cased. My casings are about to be fruited.

IMHO NEVER break jars ... it is a waste . :blush:
Sterilize a fork or knife and crumble it and then case it . :thumbup: :cool:

Thanks soo much for the advice.

Im going to read up hard on casing... Ive been contemplating it anyway.

Might try both(Hammer+Cake / Crumble+Casing) seeing as I have 10 jars all doing very well. Ill report what happens in this thread.

If you let it go a few more day chances are that you may save your jars. Use them for karo or something.
