Can't get em to dry
    #2036318 - 10/23/03 03:14 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Ok, so I put my harvest in front of a fan for 24 hrs and that worked nicely to shrink them up a lil. I went out and bought some calcium chloride and a rubbermade container. I then put wire mesh down (1/4 inch) and some foil on top of that, so the little beads of CaCl wouldnt fall through. Then I put another peice of wire mesh on top and put the shrooms on that. Its been two days, theres some condensation on the bottom, but not much. I must be doing something wrong. Is the drying chamber supposed to be closed or open? Any advice would be great... thanks

Is the CaCl dehydrated?

CaCl should be able to drip off the water. I think it?s better to put the wire mesh then the CaCl, some more wire mesh and the shrooms. IME, CaCl doesn?t works if it?s too wet.
