Does this jar look too dry?

Hello!

Yesterday I prepared some seeds by simmering it for about 30min.
As seen some of the seeds turned into goo, donno why but I still
feel that they might not carry enough water?  :confused:

Here is a picture of a jar (I made three):

You mean the grains burst from simmering too long. As long as it's just a few no problem. It doesn't look too dry, a key with WBS is you simmer them too force the seeds to absorb water your not really going to be able to see the moisture. Your jar looks like it will go just try to simmer a little less next time or at a lower temp. I simmer for about 25 min. and keep a close eye on the seeds and when you see a few start bursting remove from heat immediately, with experience you will be able to recognize it better. Also you don't won't any standing water in the bottom of the jar or it will have a hard time colonizing and be more apt to basiccilus contamination. Good luck.

yeh well I'll wait and see :smile:

I squirted the spores in a breeze of hepa-filtered air.
Hopefully that'll do. My glovebox isnt ready yet and the needle
wasnt sharp enough to cut through the filterdisc X-)

Thanks for your words
