cracker dryness
    #11258399 - 10/16/09 09:47 AM (8 years, 9 months ago)

i have a bunch of PE from my first grow at varying stages of drying, and some of the bigger mushrooms that have been drying the longest are still a little pliable, not like bendy when i bend them they snap right away, but the inside of the stems is still kind of soft, sort of like foam, if you pinch it it gives a little, but other than that they seem totally dry.  so i guess my question is, is that normal? ive had them in a tupperware with silica for about a week or so and they havent rotted or anything, i just want to not have to be worried and check them every day

Your silica more then likely has sucked up all the moisture it can.


So you can do two things.
One you can recharge your silica by putting it in the oven for a few hours at a low temp 180 i think . It should dry it out.

You can also oven dry the shrooms if you want. put oven on lowest setting and open the oven door just a crack shouldn't take long

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

i dont think im going to mess with oven drying, all the numbers on the temp dial on my oven have been worn away.  i just set them up under a black t shirt with a light bulb above, anybody tried this way before?
