1 pint jars?
    #4549943 - 08/18/05 03:04 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Well, I'm about to start my first grow, was planing on using one of the PF cake teks. So then, I just realized I bought 1 pint jars insted of half pint jars (D'oh!). So, can I still grow from these, and just double the spore inoculation, or what?

Anyways, thanks. I've been readin' the forum for a long time.

I use pint jars for the WBS tek. IMHO, WBS is easier than PF tek and it colonizes a HELL of a lot faster. If you're not comfortable with it though, you can use them for the PF tek but you'll need to follow the correct ratios. Don't quote me on this but I believe it's 4:1:1 verm/brf/water. If you over inoculate it, you could throw off the water ratio and that can lead to a world of bad.

Thanks NewbieShroomie, I think I'll use the WBS tek. If you can point me to a good version of it at shroomery, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Here are the two I used hand in hand.  They worked great on my first try, and they're still casing.

6t's Tek: http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23619

Doc's Tek: http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/26004

Be SURE to follow all sterile procedures.  The reason this isn't in the beginner section is pretty much that; people don't follow all sterile procedures. 

Some of the ingredients can be intimidating as well like polyfill and tyvek but they can be easily attained.  You can get tyvek at a post office for free lol.  Good luck and PM me if you need anything!  Happy growing :smile:

why does the ratio matter? if you mix it in a bowl the ratio would be the same, just have to make double for the same amount of jars, cuz since it's a full pint then it'd have to be double the recipe. am i wrong?

I've had different results with mixing a jar at a time vs one big bowl of substrate. I dunno, water levels seem easier to control with jar at a time. He's probably leaning toward WBS anyway so it shouldn't matter.
