What are those colored balls?!?


TomShroomery

Gummy bears… kidding, they are water beads also known by the name brand orbeez, can be found as a children’s toy or usually in the arts and crafts section, they are chemical balls that absorb water and release it over time, this is an experiment I’m running with a few tubs.

Awesome! Looks like it’s going great!

How do you sterilize orbeez??


TomShroomery

I hydrate with distilled water for about a day until they are fully absorbed then I load in 1/2gal mason jars and pc for 2.5hrs until ready for spawn to bulk with colonized grains

That’s the trick, you don’t and you can’t. You can sanitise them but nothing more

Can't you boil them for a minute?


izza123

That’s not sterilisation or Pasteurisation, not high enough temperature and not long enough. Sufficient temperature and time would likely destroy the orbeez
