Need Help With Drying Questions???
    #2928133 - 07/26/04 11:22 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Ok so AFOAF is trying to dry his first flush and it seems to be taking quite some time, here is what he did, he had a big 12' oscolating fan on on them yesterday for most of the day at least 8-10 hours just a paper towel on the counter with the fan blowing directly on them. Then before he went to bed he placed them in a small rubbermaid container with a paper towel and some epsom salt. Upon checking them this morning they are still quite moist.

Whats going on here? How long does it normally take, i have read the FAQ about drying but I'm stumped  :confused: Any suggestions ,he is really concerned becuse it would really suck if his first flush was lost due to them rotting, so any help here on what to due will be greatly appriciated--thanks all  :tongue2:

I keep mine under a fan for 24 to 48 hours. Depending on how big the shrooms are.

One thing I've found is that with the really bigguns I always split the stems to aid drying. I fan dry 24hrs. then I put them in the "Borg" dessicant drier for 24hrs. more then I know their cracker! :wink:

Ok heres the working end, 120mm axial fan, a wicker paperplate holder (works awesome!). The dessicant is in the lower unit, the air is recirculated through the shrooms down into the lower unit where the dessicant absorbs some of the moisture then the air is plumbed back to the top fan unit and the cycle repeats. :laugh:
Note: The dissicant being used in these pics was silica gel used for flower arrangements it worked great but was replaced with much larger sized silica gel used in space aged kitty litter which is cheaper too.
