birdseed substrate with water at the bottom
    #1377879 - 03/15/03 09:58 AM (14 years, 17 days ago)

I pressure cooked about 5 pint jars worth of birdseed and it came out kinda dryed out. So I used extra spore water to moisten up the seed and now there is about haft an inch of spore water in the bottom of my jars. Should I just leave it how it is? or should I shake it up. Can it cause contamination if the water sits in a big pool like that?

the moisture content needs to be right to fruit on. i wouldnt shake personally till ya see alot of top growth.

2/3 birseed to 1/3 water works well, after you pc em , then shake, very moisty.

You should buy a dealer syringe (TLG comes to mind), use the PF tek and get a few grows under your belt before tackling grains. Getting the correct moisture content with grains can be a bitch.
