    #2480474 - 03/29/04 05:28 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

well my buddy has two pf cakes goin..and he wants to know

1) can he put dried shrooms in teh freezer. or will the cold temps affect the potency?

2) he has been trying to make a print, although once the veils break on teh shrooms they stop growth(hes using poorman tek with 2 liter soda bottles). What shuld he do to provoke growth until full maturity for prints?

1) No need to freeze them if there
dry, they last a while in a jar or bag, if well dryed.
But i suppose you could freeze them if you want.

2) Maybe wait a while after veil break, say just
as there nearly fully open, and the gills are
starting to turn purple, before cutting the caps off for prints.

Yes, check around it's suggested that you store dry shrooms in the freezer. Over a 5 year period shrooms not in the freezer lost more then 50 more potency then ones that weren?t. (found on Erowid)


If you take a print as soon as the veil breaks there is two advantages. One (an important one) is that the gills haven't been exposed to open air for long and there is much less chance of a contam being on them. Two, from a new cap you can very easily get two nice and dark prints.

Use a jar with tyvek or poly so the cap can dry as it drops spores. One it helps to drop more spores and there is less of a chance of a contam or rot forming on the cap in a air tight place where the cap can't give off moisture.
