rehydrating
    #1456570 - 04/14/03 09:33 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

A few jars have dried out considerably (visible shrinkage) and stopped growing. Its been a couple days and would like to try giving them an injection of sterile water to try and bring them back to life.

Is it too late to save these jars? Will the mycelium have a chance in hell of bouncing back after drying out so much?

To be sterile, after syringe is PC'd, what kind of water should be used? How should water be sterilized and drawn into the syringe? What other sterilization techniques need to be employed?

Are the jars sealed?

Take a syringe, suck water up into it. Wrap in foil, PC.

They were sealed. But I removed tape on holes to facilitate air exchange. It turned out on a few I did it bit early and the moisture content dropped considerably.

It's hard to rehydrate dried out PF Tek Jars. You might have some success injecting sterile water, but it's an uphill battle. The water doesn't disperse throughout the substrate well. It might be worth a try, though.

Good luck.
