Not sure exactly what you mean...but if they're 100% colonized, try birthing and dunking right away. That will rehydrate them.

Has growth stopped? If it hasn't I'd wait it out. Trying to inject water into the jars is risky because of the contam risk.

Wouldnt Innoculation be a contamination risk then?

In reply to:

I believe that technically, yes, inoculation is a contamination risk... However, I don't see much use in uninoculated substrate, so that's a risk that should be taken. That said, I don't know about injecting water so I'll let someone more experienced expound.

I turn my back to the east,
From whence comforts have increas'd;
For light doth seize my brain
With frantic pain.

If the jar has stalled, you might as well try to rehydrate it.

You can add water by injecting it into the jar using a syringe. The water must be sterile.
