Can I still use dry flora max?

I have some floramax left over that has been sitting in a plastic bag for the last month. I know when you purchase it the floramax is kinda wet. I just didn't know if it made a difference as a fertilizer if it dries out
Thanks in advance!

Just give it a rinse and use it. Wet or dry it is still the same stuff. They sell it wet so you can see the color better. It also adds weight of the substrate for their 12# or 15# bag. Water is cheaper than the substrate.....

It should be fine. I have a partial bag from 6 months ago that's all dry. I rinsed it and put it in the tank. If you have the Midnight or Volcano Red...lava rock is lava rock. It's shipped wet to add weight and to bind the dust particles.
