wondering if this should work
    #1953518 - 09/26/03 07:36 AM (14 years, 28 days ago)

trying to dry out my fungus, so i set two paper towels on a mcdonalds tray and then put the sillica stuff found in medicine, shoe boxes, ect. that pulls the moisture from the air. i then added another layer of paper towels and laid my treats upon that. layed to more paper towels over those and pour a small amount of salt around the edges and a thin coating over the top towel... stored the whole thing under the foot of my bed where i have just laid random, non-psychoactive mush and had successful drying. do you think this is a good way to go about drying them? i dont want to end up loosing the caps to mold. please give me some feed back. thanks fungus_collector

I'm not sure that your silica will be enough to pull all the moisture out. I would rather dry them on open air and then use silica inside a container where you're going to store them.

it's better to fan dry them for a day or two, then use dessicant in an air tight container... i dont think silica gel is going to get them bone dry very quickly by itself

^^^ is right.

I tried drying without fan drying and got through a lot of desicant. Plus if you fan dry for a day or 2, that gets about 90% of the water out, (I checked by weight). But if you want them to keep, they must be 'cracker dry', so into the desicant box for a day or 2. Plus if you do not let the desicant get too wet, you can oven dry it and use it again and again!
