alternative to canning jars
    #3831584 - 02/25/05 04:36 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Hi everyone

This is my first post

I purchased a ready made grow kit while I was in London a while ago. Now I'm home (Tasmania, Australia) I've set it up and I've got mushrooms growing (Yay). I'm keen to take spore prints and have a go at growing some more using the PF Tek method. However I'm having a lot of trouble locating the wide mouth canning jars it recommends. I've been to a lot of homeware shops, hardware shops etc and I can't find any.

Does anyone have a suggestion as to an alternative?

All help is greatly appreciated.

Justin

I've noticed a great deal of Australians have trouble finding the jars, i am Australian too, and had the same problem. I ended up using a similar jar, but it has a bit of a shoulder on it, not too hard to get the cakes out though.

No "Gladware" in Australia? It works great.

I ordered some plastic canning jars from  Myco Supply and they are pretty good just cooked some up last night. i was afraid they would melt but they don't. they acually cool down faster too. Check 'em out. :thumbup:

I used to know a good hand from down under & he used some sort of glass wide mouth type vegemite, condiment, jam, jelly, preserve jars. Had to buy them full & eat the content. But, they worked - Ace.

He used H/poo as a sub & grew some honkering big fruits.
