"Leave him alone. They kept him in his growth jar too long."
―Cutup teasing Echo[src]

Growth jars in the Kamino cloning facility

Growth jars were devices used by the Kaminoans in the Tipoca City cloning facility to grow the embryos of the clone troopers used by the Galactic Republic. They were situated along circular discs that were attached to large pillars in the Egg Lab[1] and the Tipoca City embryo room.[2] The embryos were kept in there until they were old enough to be released.[1]

When the Kaminoans were hired to produce a clone army for the Galactic Republic, they used growth jars to contain embryos in order to mass-produce clones of the bounty hunter Jango Fett for the Republic.[1]

When the clone troopers Hevy and Echo, who were stationed on an outpost on the Rishi Moon among other clones were having an argument, their companion Cutup jokingly referred to Echo's distaste for excitement by saying that they kept him in his growth jar too long.[3]
