Spores didnt germinate in WBS. Rehydrate and reuse grains?
    #4623865 - 09/05/05 09:30 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

some are fully done, some have no growth at all...

the ones w/ no signs of germination, no bacteria either, couldnt they be reused since nothing fed of the nutrients? The only problem i see is that it would be tough to take a somewhat hydrated grain to ideal hydration w/o over saturating. they look kinda dry right now, so they need some water. they would be re p/ced ofcourse.

i know the whole 'wbs is cheap' argument, but this is more of an experiment than a necessity. if you think it has a half way decent chance of working then please chime in

Bird Rations = $0.94 for 4 lbs @ Wal-Mart

But, yeah you can try. " Time is the most valuable thing a man can spend ".

You can..usually if a jar doesnt germinate, I use them for g2g transfers...works fine just reusing..you could also inject with sterilized water to hydrate, without having to resterilize. Less guarentees that way, no guarentees either way. Good luck!

If you know what weight the bag should be you could calculate how much water you need to add. I would add a large dose of LC which will hydrate and give you rapid colonisation. If there is no contams there is no need to re-pc them, wont do any harm though
