Storing Sterilized Jars
    #4689954 - 09/21/05 01:40 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Once i have put holes in the lid, covered in tin foil and sterilized, how long can i store these jars if i dont want to inoculate right away and in what conditions do u see fit?
Thx.
P.S. is there a good method to keep the foil on the jars from falling off when sterilizing? a rubberband or?

and you have the dry verm layer on top?

you can store them with the foil on for some time before they dry out or get contam'd. just put them in a cool place without much air flow and they will be fine. i have used some after a month or more and been fine.
:peace:

Awesome thanks for the info.... real quick i ordered a kit offline... just a small one that came with some materials but they already have jars filled with verm and BRF...no punched holes in the top or anything. If i punture these lids should i resterilize and inoculate? Thats what i planned on doing

Not sure what you mean about puncturing lids.
If you think there's any chance that the substrate was exposed to air, you might want to go ahead and resterlize.
Also, on a side note, i wouldn't bother buying prepared substrate. It's much cheaper to do it yourself and it's VERY easy. Check out some of the teks in the cultivation section. Try wild bird seed (WBS). You'll find you get more potent fruits because of the nutrition in the WBS. Don't be intimidated! It's not that hard. Just my $0.02.
Good luck!

The 6 jars that came in the kit are pre-made (i thought i was gonna be the one making em but i guess they did for me) without the holes in the lid. I planned on puncturing the lids (4 holes), cover em in foil, and re-sterilizing them with the other 12 im making on my own.

So with the wild bird seed you use that instead of BRF? Is it still in the same proportion? 1/2 cup verm, 1/4 cup Bird Seed (instead of flour), and 1/4 cup water? Lastly, is there a certain kind of type of bird seed? I was at ace hardware last night and there was an entire rack full of bird seeds.

Thanx :smile:

Any kind of WBS will do as long as it is not treated with a fungicide. Just pick up a 25 lb bag at Walmart for like $5. With WBS, you don't use verm at all. You just soak the WBS in water for 12-24 hours and then rinse the shit out of it. PC for one hour at 15psi.

Also, i wouldn't drill four holes in your lids. I just poke one that is maybe 1/4 iinch in diameter and plug it with polyfill (some use tyvek).

You'll benefit greatly from reading the teks located in the cultivation section. Read read read!!!
Good luck!
