What the hell is up with my damprid?
    #1526385 - 05/07/03 01:47 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

i put a layer of damprid on the bottom of an airtight container (not too much)...then put a paper towel..and then some sorta wet mushies

the fucking damprid melted and turned into a soggy mush, soaking the paper towel, which in turn got on some of the shrooms

wtf is going wrong? my theory is that the shrooms had too much moisture in them and the damprid coulndt handle it all

Yes they have moisiture, approx. 90% which is why it is advisable to elevate them at least 2' above the dessciant.

I used a sock in a jar.

Actually, it's very easy to isolate a super producing sclerotia strain.

Follow the strain isolation technique on Let's Grow Mushrooms, and then select sectors early which are brown in color.  By the second or third transfer, you'll see stones developing, and this is only about 1 month after the original swipe of spores on agar.

Now, take each stone and move it to a new dish.  Soon, the mycelium will grow out and you'll see fresh stones developing, and if they're good strains, the sclerotia is forming long before the mycelium reaches the edge of the plate.  Pick strains which form four or five stones within two weeks and use these for your grain masters.

um... that's exactly what damprid does if you do with it what you just described.

unless you let the water drain out of it, damprid will get watterlogged. if your mushrooms touch it, they will absorb damprid and this will fuck them up beyond repair.

what you need to do with damprid is have some kind of tray holding it up off the bottom of the container and allowing water to drain out of it. wire mesh covered with window screen works well. then you need another tray above that to put the mushrooms on so that they're nowhere near the damprid. wire mesh works for this.


|______________| < mushrooms here, on wire mesh
|______________| < damprid here, on wire mesh covered with window screen
|______________| < water drains to here, where is must be periodically emptied

you should air dry them or fan dry them for 24 hours and then put them in the container with the damprid...
