Some questions about storing Shrooms...
    #1057142 - 11/16/02 01:18 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Hi all. I just finished harvesting half of my first grow. After pulling the mushies off I put them in a round rubbermaid type container with a paper towerl under them. Being my first time ever harvesting them I have a few questions about storing...

1) Are there any alternative ways of drying out the shrooms? I don't have a fan to use on them so Im not sure what to do.

2) How long will the shrooms stay fresh in the rubbermaid container i have them in? How long will they stay fresh without being dried out?

3) I have some epsom salt i can use for dessicant, but I don't have any chicken wire to separate the shrooms from the salt. Any suggestions on a different way to dry out the shrooms in a container with the dessicant ?

Thats all I can think of for now. Thanks in advance for your replies.

1)even if you use dessicant its best to fan dry them for a day or too and suck whatever moisture is left in them out with the dessicant.
2)not long at all. dry them out asap or they will get all moldy and youll lose your whole crop.
3)get creative. like when you used to make a bong out of house hold shit, some times growin shrooms is alot like smokin pot, you have to improvise. you got any screen for screen doors? a flat cheese grater? grill from a car speaker?

buy the refil container of DampRid from Lowes.... looks like a milk container. It will dry them out quick like. You will need something to hold 'em off of it though.

You need to airdry them before using the dessicant.
Just lay them out on newspaper or put them on top of your hot water cylinder or on top of your monitor... anywhere warm with a bit of airflow. They will get almost completely dry within a few days, then you can dry them completely with dessicant.
