W00t I found vermiculite at Lows! more questions
    #894283 - 09/19/02 08:15 PM (15 years, 8 days ago)

Ok so today me and my dad(hes aware im growing them for research and decoration) and to be honest thats mostly the truth. It sounds like so much fun to grow them, seriously. like a challenge really. I also grow other types of plants and no its not weed or anything illegal! so Lows only had one type of verm, imma use it anyway. no choice. the size of the particles very from twice the size of rice to the size of a grain of sand. average size is 1/3 the size of a rice grain. is that too fine? I could filter out the smaller particles but ill lose alot of the verm that way.
second I looked all over for 1/2 pint jars and the closest I found was 10.5 ounce drinking glasses at a dollar store 3 for $1 good price. they are tapered but near the top theres a wide ring then it gets a little more narrow. ill have to use more than 1/2 inch dry verm on the top, like 1.5 inches if im to remove the cake from the jar intact. will 1.5 inches be ok?

OK!
The verm will work fine. Fine grade will work coarse i think is better but fine grade is also great. No probs either way, it's really a preference thing some say they like fine some say they like coarse they both work.
Now for the Jars go to a safeway or any major Grocery store and they'll carry em! If they don't have 1/2 pint jars use pint jars just double the innoc amout of spore soultion.
Rember wide mouths are superior jars. Any large grocery store carries em :wink:
Go check will there still in stock. Canning season is almost over :frown:

My dad probably wont drive me to any more stores. He doesnt know the exact nature. I told him as much as I could. He still doesnt understand why I wanted glass jars and not plastic, I told him "glass is better" and that plastic may "melt" when sterilized. I will have to do with what I have now. I can always use tin foil over drinking glasses anyway I suppose. should I add more than 1/2 inch dry verm on top as a protective layer? also can I use a handtowel for the botttom of pressure cooker?

You can get jars on line , they cost more due to shipping , but is convenient .
Absorb all the knowledge you can before doing this , including respecting the fact you live at home with parents .  :cool:
place for jars...... www.doitbest.com do a search there for "canning jars"

I feel if you are doing this secretly from your parents you shouldn't be doing this at all.
