Can't find tapered jar
    #6757880 - 04/07/07 03:33 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I've been driving around for 4 hours looking for tapered jars, but i cant find any anywhere. does anyone know of an alternative i can use? it seems to me that using a 20oz soda bottle and cutting off the top when everything is cultivated will be fine, but this is my first time growing so i dont know. im using this technique:

EDIT: actually, i just remembered that i cant use a plastic bottle because i would have to boil it. is there a way to make the cake not stick together so i can just poor it out?

I never could find the jars that are visibly tapered. Most people use the 1/2 pint jars with straight walls, you should be able to find them anywhere that sells jars.

Regular drinking glasses will also work

Tapered means a V shape that is wider at the lid. Use 1/2 pint wide mouth jars for the pf tek.

You're right, but there's various shapes. I could never find the short half-pint jars with big-mouth lids. I've also seen pictures of the tall half-pint jars that were obviously tapered, like a drinking glass... could never find those either. The jars I was refering to are tapered slightly but look mostly straight. It's what most people use, and can sometimes take a heavy palm to get the cake out.

Anyway, I've seen pint jars that get small at the top, but I've never seen half-pint jars like that. I know some places that sell mason jars won't carry all sizes, but if you make a trip to a couple different grocery stores, you should be able to find them. Target, Wally world etc. also carry them.

Just make a cap out of foil. That's what I did :sun:
One piece for sticking the syringe throu, and one for covering it after.

Normally in packs of 12 or similar, I doubt they sell them separate.

The only place I have ever seen them separate was at hobby/craft type stores or you will have to buy a case of 12.They are "Seasonal" here and when in season you can find them at the grocery store,hardware store,walmart,etc... when not in season you wont find them ANYWHERE so if its like this where you live stock up when you see them,last time I saw them I bought the last 4 cases
