What the hell is up with my damprid?
    #1526385 - 05/07/03 01:47 AM (13 years, 7 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.

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.

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