Would This WORK??
    #2329302 - 02/13/04 02:51 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I was wondering if I put a tyvek envelope stuffed with fresh shrooms in a tupperware filled with dessicant, would it work? I know that tyvek lets air through. what problems could you see happening?
thanks.

problem = the water not escaping the tyvec. is there some reason for encasing in tyvec. try putting the dessicant on the bottom and making a wire rack/table that the shrooms site on suspended above. personally letting them dry in the open air works. especially during winter when the air is close to no humidity.

well i thought if i put the shrooms in the bags, i wouldnt need to build a drying chamber with a rack. I usllay do let mine dry with just a fan but the last flush i had there a 30 gram goldent teacher shroom which i dont think drying with a fan is efficient. Maybe if i put a few holes in the tyvek to let water leak out, could that help?

what do you mean by efficent? leting them dry in open air only takes a few days, even without a fan. you dont have to rush the drying prosess. dessicants are better for long term presservation then drying.

Well i do want them for long time storage. But anyways, do you think that just fan drying can get a 30 gram shroom cracker dry. I actually would like to preserve this shroom because its the biggest i have grown. And is the first casing i have ever done. SO its like my trophy or baby.

i have seen a shroom cracky dry for years in the open, noting it was an arid climate. if you live in the northern hemisphere the ambient humidity right now is great for drying(winter), to the cracky dry point. if you want to keep it as a trophy dry it and coat it with schilak, permanent trophy you will have.
