My first home grown mushies
    #1271048 - 02/02/03 01:18 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Heya! I have Stropharia Cubensis Growing Kit and have some simple questions about it.

Ive had it growing now for 2 weeks and its finally started to show some signs of growing, so now im intrested when i should make my first harvest. Largest one is about 3cm high and pretty thick, but mostly just tiny little ones. So any tips on good harvesting time are welcome. :smile:

Im planning to dry them on oven which im going to put somewhere around 30 Celsius with its fan on and close the door and keep em there for about 5-9 hours or so until they seem dry. Then if im not going to be ready to consume them, im gonna grind them and put on plastic bag and then inside air tight glass jar. 

Hope i can get myself decent mushie farm someday instead of these growing kits.  :laugh:

Please, do *not* put them in the oven! Fan dry for 24-48 hours, then use dessicant if you plan on storing them for longer than a week or two. X.O is right -- read the FAQ dude.

Well the thing is i dont understand a rat ass about that Dessicant drying setup, dont even understand what dessicant means(im not native english speaker). I seem to have no other fan(except hairdresser :smile:)  than one in my oven, and you can use it without putting heat on but still it seems to blow warm air (about 30C estimate) Itll have to do so hope it aint too much.

Thanks anyway.

It?s desiccant, not dessicant.
What language do you speak?

no oven dudu even at low tempratures eat them fresh (one)
or dry them in front of an air condition
or a simple fan it will take a bit longer but so what just don't put them in the oven you'll regret it for sure

...he might if theyre in a small confined space like an oven as opposed to a large room withe ambient heat, but all the methods of drying are so goddam simple, why take the chance? either way tranquilla, you should read the faq to familiarize yrself with the various drying methods... otherwise, just eat them fresh... out of curiosity though, where are you from? packets of desiccant are found in most boxes of footwear, if not all...

if you dont have a fan, then use an air condition unit, just put a old shirt or something somewhere infront of it and lay your babies down on it and leave them there for about 24 hours. and if that doesnt work... please dont use heat unless absolutly necessary! go out and spend 3 or 4 dollars on a fan at the thrift store, its definatly worth it

desiccant is stuff painters use to dry the air so paint drys faster, its used whenever the air needs to be dry, the mmgg explains well with pictures how to make a drying chamber, im gonna have my 11 year old sister read that part of the tek, then give her all the supplies to make it, i garentee she will be able too, so dont be lazy and make a damn drying chamber, its simple as freakin breathing
