Picking and drying question..
    #2301563 - 02/04/04 05:46 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I read that ts time to pick the shrooms when the veil breaks, but then i also read that you should wait a day or two after the veil breaks. Which one is best? Also, for drying using dessicant, in shroomgod's tek it says to first fan, but if one doesnt have access to a fan would leaving them in a dessicant box ontop of a screen still dry them out? thanks!

From what I know you pick them when the veil breaks for potency. Or wait a couple of days if you need to make spore prints.

as for drying I dry mine in a cool, dim lighted place.

Yea the reason you would wait a couple days is so the veil totally came off exposing every bit of the gills to get a good print.

Penalties against drug use should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against the possession of marijuana and mushrooms in private for personal use.

You can use just dessicant, but it will become waterloged very quickly if you have a large harvest to dry. This just means that you need to dry the dessicant back out in the oven or replace with dry dessicant if you have it. Letting the mushrooms sit in open air on top of paper towels for a day may help to get rid of some moisture initially.

Just put them on some paper with a fan blowing across them for a couple hours...then in a dessicant chamber--this will give you cracker dry mushies by the next day
