damp off problems
    #2866243 - 07/07/04 08:24 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I've been having trouble using the damp off technique drying mushrooms. I fan dry them for 24 hours. Then I put them in a yogurt container set up with a screen an inch from the bottom with a 2sq inch folded piece of paper towel soaked in damp off laying on it. Then the mushrooms are suspended in on a screen a few inches from the damp rid.

I checked them the next day and the mushrooms were soggy and they smelt like damp off. I've had this problem before. I don't know what's going on.  :confused:

Any help would be appreciated.  :smile:

What do you mean 'soaked in damp rid'? Damp rid is a solid. It should look like BB sized white pebbles.

It sounds like you let your damp rid get exposed to the air where it absorbed a bunch of moisture.

Change the title than, silly!

What the hell is damp off?

I leave the container cracked just a bit(chest type Igloo cooler) when drying with dessicant. I've noticed it speeds up the drying time alot if there is a little air circulation in it. Uses more damp rid but it's worth it in the time saved to me. I have this theory that the faster they are dried, the more psilocybin is saved from oxidation too but its just a screwy theory..

Do you have a link for this damp off technique? I don't know why you would be soaking the paper towel in any liquid anyway, seems it would be counter-productive to the drying process, as you just experienced.
