Rye grass hydration requires a different method than grains because of the tiny seed size but good results can be had by soaking 12hrs and drain for another 12-18 hrs .This long drain time is to allow the swelling seed to absorb the remaining trapped moisture .
The other way is to premeasure the water/seed as described in Rodger's Tec for RG.

just out of curiosity, what made you decide to switch from jars to bags?

Bags are definately the way to go. The reason to switch would be to get a greater amount of spawn with less work.

You can prepare the grains to go in bags using the same method you would for jars....unless you are using the PC hydration method where you add water to jars.

My favorite mix for bags is 50/50 WBS/Popcorn.

i only use seed ive tryed it all and its the best imo.as far as the switch highflyer got it right also the its cheaper than glass and you get more spawn wit less work....right on just talked to rodger and he said that the ratios for water/seed are the same for bags....peace...

WBS alone colonizes too slow.
Adding 50% corn speeds it up considerably.

ok ok ok went to aplace to get grass seed and these pigeons wanted 750 or better for the seed for the amount i wanted.i think im going with high flyers advice and using pcorn mixed with bird seed for my bags..but would that attract critters for an outdoor grow...i figured if im diggin a hole and i have a good casing layer the animals would stay clear even if using pcorn mixed with bird seed.just a thought but there is no way in hell im paying 750 or over for the grass seed.i was informed there was a cheaper place and i went there last time but it was far far away they had a much lower price but for the amount that i need i think itll still cost some....hmmm just thought id through myself out there for a hot minute....peace...

Maybe they thought it was like those grass seed squares you start lawns with. That would make more sense maybe? Maybe not.

Too much weed tonight. *sigh*

man the lowes by my mom's house had 50lb bags for $12... no way i would have used it so i got a smaller bag, 10lbs, at HD for $7... even if you went with those it would only be $175 for 250lbs... i'm guessing the guy misunderstood what it was you wanted... ask them for plain untreated rye grass seed... i'm sure some place like home depot or lowes will order it for you if you ask them..

that's a lot of seed
but at least it's the right time of year
to look,
many stores with it
but for the weight
i'd sure try to find a local source
else shipping would kill ya.
is there perchance a Planters Seeds store nearby ?
farm supply ?

Hey everyone,
After the switch to the new server I cannot find the thread to Rodger's mixture for grass seed. I remember it used coffe with a pinch of lime, gypsum, and rye grass seed, but I cannot remember for the life of me the ratio of seed to coffee. Does anyone remember? Thanks.
