Anyone that has access to baby food jars, could you possibly save them for me? I'd be happy to pay for shipping. I'm running out of jars for tissue culture!

Thanks Nick. Yeah, I've gotten most of my baby food jars off of Craigslist and eBay. Unfortunately living in a less populated part of the country in Southern Oregon, I haven't been able to find any on Craigslist since moving here. I have ordered about 150 of eBay, but it's usually pretty expensive and I should be able to find some that people are basically giving away.

I'm thinking about contacting some local day cares and going down to the recycle center to see if they'll let me dig through their glass.

I might have some small salsa type of jars. Would those work?

They could possibly work. The trick is making sure that I can get autoclavable lids for them. There are several companies that manufacture them to fit baby food jars and mason jars, but not most other types of jars. Is the lid the same size as a baby food jar lid?

A bit bigger than a baby food jar lid, and it just screws on. I wanna say the jars can hold about 8 oz.

Why don't you just have a couple of kids? ;) :lol:

What's a autoclavable lid?

And maybe we should buy Matt some baby food for his birthday. He'll have to do the eating. Ahahahaha...... If Matt has kids, to help eat the food, he'll have to wait almost a year. Matt is not patient... He wants everything the day before he decides he wants them, right daddy? Eheh heh heh heh heh!

Wait... Why would DM pay the shipping and handling stuff? I thought the other side, as in the reciever pays the shipping?

Sorry about the "not patient" comment and the questions. I don't know a lot of things.
