Frog just loaded up some jars with substrate. There was no water seen when squeezed, but it felt damp...will it be ok?

Thats how mine were and they turned out fine. I think the BRF and vermiculite just hold in moisture really good. If you followed the recepi 1/2 cup verm, 1/4 cup BRF, 1/4 cup Water, you will be just fine. I thought mine were to dry to but I was wrong. I also only mixed for 2 jars at a time to keep the water content somewhat even, but I dont think that matters to much as long as you know how to mix stuff up good.

it's better to tend toward to dry rather than too wet.
if it's needed you can inject a small volume of sterile water during colonisation,it's usually unnecessary though
