1 pint jars ok?
    #4741654 - 10/01/05 06:21 PM (12 years, 20 days ago)

Hey guys, I am really curious if anyone has successfully grown mushrooms starting with 1 pint jars. I had once used 1 pint jars and got them starting to culture but I exposed them to bright sunlight and a major temperature change so they died anyways. Any info?? Thanks.

If your using cakes the jars need to be wide mouth tappered. Other then that its all good

yeah they are the standard 'Ball' jars. Also when I had the 1 pint jars that died I had real problems getting the dead mass of fungus/substrate out...mabye thats why they are preferred smaller. Do you think I'll run into this problem again if I'm successful? I don't wanna touch it to get it out...

they have to be wide mouth jars, not just the standard canning jars. yes i have successfully colonized 1 pint jars from multispore syringes without a problem. they take a bit longer than the 1/2 pinters but will definitely work. make sure they are wide mouth or you will have to dig the cake out.
best of luck
:peace:

yes you can use 1 pint jars to make cakes.

they just take a little longer to colonize than 1/2 pint jars.
