yes and no...

most people will try to spray the media to re wet it but you need to be sure it doesn't puddle on you.. plus the spray will potentially damage the hardening chrysalis of the maggots getting ready to hatch.

other option is to add water directly to the media and remix it already with maggots in it... this has it's own problems as you can imagine...

My suggestion would be... mix up a new cup and media... and before putting you Raffie in it go ahead and take the old drier media and mix it in with the new moist media.. make it just a tad wetter than usual so the drier stuff with soften... maybe practice on a couple different cultures to see what will work best. but if all works well, you put the raffie in the new culture and the maggots will spread out and you should be back in business
