    Default Which are the best jars for storage?

    hey guys,

    I've done some research and some growers use mason jars and others use the ones with a rubber type that you press down with a lever type of thing. See photos

    Which was is best for during curing and then long term storage? I know it needs to be air tight space.

    Thanks

    I use 2 litre Kilner jars.

    Stores weed perfectly for as long as you want. Store in a dark location.

    I bought some from home bargains and the rubber rim didn't smell nice gave the jar a funny smell, might just be me been fussy and that was over a year ago they might stock different ones now. I use what jumper said and get 2 litre jars from Asda, they are sound

    Cheap jars plus kilner seals works well

    I like the Ball jars, if you tight them down real good, they are very hard to pop that seal when you are burping.

    I've always used Kilner but I want to check out the cheaper Ikea ones, as a few here now have recommended them

    Anyone using plastic containers? I have a bad track record of breaking glass.

    Plastic breathes air so not really airtight and plastic releases microscopic plastic particles over time.

    Wonder how long they would have to be stored to be an issue?

    I would have sworn food grade plastic would be fine. All the legal markets sell in plastic containers. Not being argumentative, I'm just surprised.

    Glass it is then. Ikea has those cheap jars I'll pick up a couple for my next harvest. I have lots of mason jars too.

    Not for long term storage, it sticks to the plastic, for A short period of time, I guess it would be all right, but long time it sweats. JMO

    The only way I know of storing in plastic, is those plastic bags that are air tight seal, and store in the Freezer. But not good for Jars sitting out in normal temps.

    Definitely Kilner type jars with silicon seal for all of your jams, preserve and weed.
