How to store gel balls

Hello, just wondering what the best way to store gel balls is?

Some recommend in air tight seal in fridge.
I keep them in my speedloader in the fridge which is almost air sealed.
I would avoid freezing them as it will probably destroy the molecular bonding once they begin to de-thaw.


would that be in water or would you drain them first?

Oh sorry, always drain them and even use a paper towel to take off excess water, “not completely dry them but not have residue water” as to keep them at the desired size if youw ere growing for certain sizing.


ok, thanks very much

What happens if the are kept in water constantly?

They stay wet :rofl:

Seriously it doesn’t matter as long as they are no larger than you need at maximum grow size

Cool because they work great just kept in water for me

I leave m bottles on bedside table full of water. I’m not dedicated enough to care about their size as long as they just work, I have had problems with terrible feeding from gels that have been drained of water for some time so I empty the water out the day I use em

i do drain and toweled gels in larged airtight bottles away from the sun

i only grow my gels a night or two before games
