Discreet Drying
    #3455456 - 12/06/04 05:43 PM (12 years, 5 days ago)

well, i searched the FAQ and didnt find anything about this particularly...anyways the question:
i live with my parents, and they often come in my room, and therefore many of the conventional means of drying (fan under wire rack, etc) arent ideal, so i am looking for a VERY discreet and effective way to dry fresh shrooms, any advice would be very much appreciated. thanks!!

You could put them on the back of your monitor or tv, and put something over them? Thats just a sugesstion, I am sorta in the same position but its not really my parents that I worry about.

Don't grow if you live with your parents. Do it at a friends house. Otherwise, i can't think of anything. I tried when i was younger to lay them out to dry in the top of a closet, they just molded and i lost a bunch of em. Maybe dry them at a friends house if you want the grow at your place.

im not growing them, im just picking them and am trying to dry them. my current method is spacing them on a peice of paper inside a vented shoebox in my closet...this gets them dried a lot, but they can still be benta little without breaking...moreso along the lines of styrofome, not cracker dry...is this sufficiently dry? i wouldnt think so...

check out some dessicants on the site. once you dry them as much as you are doing (granted they don't mold which is what i think would happen), you can make a desiccant chamber to get them closer to cracker dry.

right on idigo. home depot/lowes carries damprid or silica gel dessicants (used for drying out damp/painted closets and such). put that in the bottom of a container and use something to separate the mushies from the desiccant. leave them in there until they're cracker dry! :smile:

yeah they rarely mold how im drying them, unless they are soaking, dripping wet, and i forget to change the paper, and there is no air circulation...happened once. but hey i will definitley try out the desiccant chamber...but to get to that first stage of dryness, i ran out of room in the shoebox, so i created this conceled means of drying...observe:

Stage One: Drawer turned into drying center



Stage Two: Drying center covered with binder on stilts



Stage Three: Drying center turned into seemingly messy fucking drawer



which is better for drying? placing them on their caps with the stems pointing up, or putting them on there side with most of the gills facing down?

Wow, very sneaky. It really does look like a messy fucking drawer... I wouldn't even dare mess with that if I found it.


Just lay them on their sides, you want as little mushie to surface contact as possible to maximize airflow.  I would think putting them on their caps to dry would keep the part of the cap that is touching the surface from drying as quickly as it could.


I'm in the same situation, and my bed sits right over the heat vent to my room.  I have a screen on stilts I made out of cardboard boxes that I have sitting over the vent, I pushed a bunch of junk to conceal and voila...  hidden drying in 1-2 days.
