I grew out my south americans as most of you know and its my first time. I'm like sweet i grew them, now what? So should i pick them and if so where do i store them? I am not consuming them immediately. Plastic bag? Grated rack? I dont really know what to do w/ them and what the best way of storing/drying them is for the beginner. Thanks so much for your time.

Stick them in front of a fan for 24-48 hours and then put them in a container with some desicant.

read some of the faq's and there will be a couple ways listed, the best is to put them in a container with damp rid for 3 days, make sure they arent touching the damp rid though. After that put them in an airtight jar or ziplock bag, just make sure they are totally dry before storing them.

fan dry them first or they may rot and your damprid will be saturated with water.

Can i store them in a containter with silica gel that you get in packages and new shoes, as long as they dont come in contact w/ it? And do i put them so the air is being blown on the mushroom or put them mushroom behind the fan so the air is sucked away from it?

Put the cubes in front of the fan. And yes, you can use silica gel.....you'd probably need more of it though.

Run out to your local Home Depot and get some calcium chloride instead.

you can ask for calcium chloride by name at Home Depot...they carry it this time of year. If you have $10 you can get a 50 lb. bag that should last you a while.
