So my veils are startin to break...........
    #1732016 - 07/20/03 11:48 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Okay, a friend of a friend of a friend's veils are breakin on his cakes but he reports that they are only 1-2 inch long in heighht, does he pick them now or let them try and grow more? There are smaller ones and then there are decent sized ones. The cakes are in a heavy heavy heavy humid enviroment with multiple fannings per day. There terrarium with just perlite / water wasn't to humid, it was pretty weak. So he purchased a humidifer and stuck it right in there and sad "HUMIDIFY BITCH"......a day later his walls were saturated in water, which is a good thing.....Anyways, his pins have been fruiting for probably a good 72-90 hours....


EDIT....
how do you dry these bastards....put them on notebook paper and set the notebook paper in front of a fan on low?

"Does he pick them now or let them try and grow more?" Now.

I had the same problem with some of my casings on their 2nd flush...... And as i can say, they don't grow further.... Even if they grow a little, it doesn't effect the potency considerably!... As Magash mentioned picking them now will be good for your later flushes... (they don't waste nutrients...) And about drying see;

Fan drying can only dry them to a certain point, you have to use the dessicant after about 24 hours, to really make them cracker crisp. The best source I have found is hobby stores, just ask them for Silica Gel or Derilite, people use it for drying flowers.

dessicant=desiccant
i wouldn't think you could just use a fan. The best i can figure, if you use only a fan you will only remove the moisture content of anything you dry to the same percentage as the relative humidity of the surrounding area. Desiccants work by drawing moisture out of the air in closed environments. when you get something as dry as it will get with a fan you then place it in a bowl on a screen with desiccant underneath, being careful not allow what you are drying to contact the desiccant. if you allow it to touch the desiccant you will end up with more moisture in those areas, because the desiccant is drawing moisture from the air to that spot. sorry for the run on sentences.

Start off with a fan to dry, after 24 hours put into an airtight contaienr with a layer of drierite or damprid (available at lowes) in the bottom. Or cook epsom salts at 350 degrees for an hour or so, then put them in the bottom as well
