I tried flasking a couple of times with household materials, including baby food jars, Clorox, a 10-gallon aquarium, rubber gloves, and a big plastic bag. I even got some orchid seeds to grow one of those times. Basically, the method involved creating a sterile environment in the plastic bag. The plastic bag was modified by having rubber gloves inserted most of the way through holes made in the bag, then sealed to the bag. This allowed me to put my hands into the gloves and work inside the bag. The aquarium was placed in the bag to create a work space where the upper part of the bag wouldn’t drop down. The medium for the seeds was made using Miracle Grow, agar, and water. The medium was poured into the jars and sterilized in a pressure cooker. After cooling, the jars, the orchid seeds, and some tools were put into the bag, which was sealed. A 10% solution of Clorox was sprayed inside the bag to sterilize things. On one occasion the Clorox solution was used to sterilize the seeds, and on the other occasion hydrogen peroxide was used. The jars were opened, seeds placed on the medium, and the jars were closed. Each jar was placed in a baggie, the inside of which was sprayed with the Clorox solution, then sealed. Out of a dozen jars total for the two times, 10 stayed sterile inside, and seeds germinated in two of them. Mold/fungus/bacteria grew inside the other two jars. I’d like to learn about the experiences of others who have tried to flask using readily available materials and get some ideas from them.
