Tie them on strings CAREFULLY in front of a heater. If you have a space heater, put it someplace more discreet, but safe.

If you just leave them in a bag then they may just mold, or get eaten by bugs, or just turn to mush. You probably knew that though.

Crikey, where's mine?

Seriously I still haven't found a single cyan.

Gonna start pouring water on one of my spots every night that it don't rain and see if that does anything. *Hope no cop ever drives by and wonders what I'm doing lol cause I can't think of an excuse to be watering a lawn at 2am o.O;

"Hi Mr. Officer, I thought this lawn looked awful dry and decided to put the hose to it. Sorry." xD

I still wanna get a weed sprayer full of cyan LC and go spraying mulch beds while wearing one of those orange road contruction vests. I bet noone would ask a single question, especially if you had a clipboard (cuz we all know dudes in orange vests and clipboards are official) :gethigh:

What the fuck? What a waste of time. Throw them in a paper bag surroudned by papertowels or something else and just switch the paper towels every couple of hours. If the RH by you isn't to high you can just let them sit out and dry. OR you can just let them sit outside of your computer fan

LC, not spores. Heartier the culture, the better the chance it'd work...

Don't see why not, in theory at least. As long as you sprayed in the spring/summer to give enough time for colonization. Maybe I'll finally get around to trying this next year, gotta find some cyans and make LC first tho. :igor:

That paper towel method wastes more time then putting them in front of airflow, even with no or low heat.

It takes a few minutes to thread a needle through a haul of mushrooms, and a few hours to dry them.

I'm broke and paper towels are expensive.

Nice!

I started checking some of my patches here in San Francisco, but I anticipate the Bay Area will be a month behind the rest of the PNW (namely Washington, Oregon).

I say if you can't dry the fuckers, just eat 'em! That's what I'd do anyway. Nice finds!

good drying method:

buy a box of epsom salt. not iodized or whatever. gotta be epsom. put a layer down on foil on top of a cookie tray.

bake it in the oven at 400 degrees for about an hour. let it cool. break it apart. put it in a large tupperware or plastic bin. nice layer at the bottom. then grab some wire netting or even paper towels and lay it down on top of the epsom salt.

put the mushies on top. plastic wrap the top of the container. should be cracker dry in 1-3 days. the epsom salt will suck all the moisture out. and it can be reused.

also helps to let a fan blow over the mushies for up to 24 hours prior to all this, but not totally necessary.

i don't recommend using heat to dry - will lessen potency. dry as soon as possible - oxidation occurs which also lessons potency.

As long as you aren't baking them in an oven the heat doesn't reduce potency.

Airflow and low heat shouldn't hurt a thing. That's why a food dehydrator works so well.

I always lay out a cookie sheet or foil and dump a bunch of baking soda, cover it with a paper towel, lay the guys on it and huck it in a dry closet top shelf.  Usually dries pretty damn quick, regardless of size.

Any chance this weekend's freeze will affect production?

IIRC after the first mild freeze* is the best time to go look.

Tell me if I'm mistaken o.O;

Edit: lol 'freeze mild'

today i went back to check the spots after afew days away from home to find one of my larger patches gone... :frown:
so i continued my search around my spots found some new pins and mild growth from the other patches. I didnt have a chance to take pictures due to other competition in the park i was hunting, i had been watering the spots daily until i left for afew days im asuming the upcoming week will bring some moisture to my spots but im afraid that other hunters are going to continue to pillage my locations...
soo in light of that i decided to pick the oldest cyans that were not fully grown but began to show signs of dehidration anyway...

then on my way out i encountered another person searching in the same park he obviously had no idea what he was doing and requested that i teach him how to find them what shall i do to protect my sacred cyan spots?


RIP :bye:

I has a sad for you. :frown:

The good news is if they are inexperienced they will walk by them most of the time :wink:

Keep up the scouting new spots and try to hit your known areas during off hours when theres not as much traffic. Parks are pretty tough competition.

I'm on the EastSide as well, so if I happen to run into your patch you can be at peace knowing it will be treated respectfully.
