Using Dessicant while making a Spore Print
    #1541912 - 05/12/03 04:01 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

AFOAF is about to make his first spore print (yay!!).  He's going to follow the basic printing tek by using tin foil with cap and drinking glass on top.  He wants to also put a little "damp-rid" brand dessicant in the glass to absorb the moisture to allow the cap to dry quicker. 

Since this is his first time growing (and printing) he wants me to humbly ask for any advice/thoughts/tips about using the dessicant-namely will the spore print be compromised by drying out faster. 

BTW, I already (I mean he  :wink:) did a search and couldn't find anything regarding using dessicant while making print.

Thanks!!

Rather than use a dessicant. Simply cover the cap with a container, that allows for some degree of gas exchange. My foaf uses these, cuts a small area out & covers it with micro/porious tape.

:smile:

:smile:

I think a dessicant might dry the cap out rather rapidly, which may result in a lighter spore print.

Thanks SixTango-never fail to help out a bro :grin:

I'm guessing a coffee filter would work OK to cover the small hole in the container, yes?  Also, what material are you printing on?  Looks like wax paper.  Thanks again bud.

I would not go with a coffe filter, in this application.

A hole & polyfil would work.

You can buy micro/porious medical tape at many marts and/or drug stores in the med section. RightAid has it.

Prints are on HD wax paper (like hamburger patties are stacked with), then doubled & heat sealed.

That way you can see what you  are working with.
