Why take out sunflower seeds from WBS?
    #4262451 - 06/06/05 02:51 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Hey guys,

Why take out sunflower seeds from WBS? I'm very curious. Can I leave the birdseed in? I realize that it is VERY easy to take out the birdseed... But I haven't found anyone to give me a good solid reason to take em out, other than "the guides say to".

I have heard that they don't colonize as fast, but I'm willing to wait a bit more time. Can I leave em in?

Thanks

It's not necessary. Just sterilize the whole bit and you'll be fine.

i remove the floutzees because thy are most likely hollow seeds anyway. (and it is so easy to do)
sunflower seeds will colonize just as well as any other seed.
whats your point ?

Leaving them in actually helps. Is a poor myth started some time ago. They contribute some lignins and oils that are benificial though, in quanities of 5% or less.

Ahh yes, thanks scatmanrav, I was always suspicious about removing them because of all the guides saying too without any rationale.

I'll leave em in... thanks bro, and thanks to all the others too.

i think its because they are hollow and take up valuable jar space that could be used for more nutritious matter.
