it should be like
code:


|----|
|JAR |
|____|


basically what you want, is so you can turn it upside down, and it will slide out easily, well at least if your doing the pf cake tek stuff, which im assuming since you didnt say... if your not, and want to do casings, then it shouldnt matter

Just break it up with a sterile fork while still in the jar, then just pour it into the casing.

Yes.. its very possible.  Read up on some Casing Info. in the  FAQ's..    Just be as steril as possible and everything should go well..  Unless they have  Wide Mouth jars where you got those at, then you could return the ones you got for them, and do a few cakes as well..

im think im just gonna return those jars and do all jars, i don't wanna fuck up with casing on the first try...unless ofcourse i can break the jars once they are colonized...but tht would be a waste of money and could damage pins probly right?

Yes.. that would be a waste to break the jars..    If that place doesnt have the wide mouth jars, somewhere near should have them..  Ask an older lady that works at the store.. they usually know where to get them..(I think they grow mushrooms too!) :smirk:

Try birdseed, or a grain substrate instead of PF cakes. You can use the jars you have already since birdseed/ grain can easily be removed without using a knife or breaking the jars. Plus it colonizes in about 1/3 the time and is more nutritous than cakes. The Shroomery FAQ had tons of easy recipes for birdseed/grain substrates as well as easy casing methods. I strongly recommend using coco coir as the casing material. All the details you may need are in the shroomery FAQ

In reply to:

These will be fine. Any tapered 1/2-pint glass vessel will work.

It sounds like you got the jelly jars. If I remember right roadkill used these for awhile with much success.

Give it a go man........

those are in fact wide mouth jars, they just call it "tapered" instead.  good luck with your grow.  and if you want to case, do it - it's a piece of cake :wink:
