Spore Print a little damp! HELP!
    #3488185 - 12/12/04 11:09 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Well I just did a huge GT print... put the cap on an index card (paper) and stuck a huge mug over let it sit for 48hrs took the cup off folded it up and into a ziplock bag... The only problem is the paper is a little damp from the moisture of the cap... right now I slightly cracked the ziplock bag and put it in my desiccant chamber.. will this be ok overnight then once the papers dried seal in the ziplock bag

only reason I ask this is because I heard moisture is a bad thing... will my print be cool? I hope so because its BIG

i have never made a print but i read one time to lay a wash cloth under the card so you can get some air exchange in there. but it sounds like a good idea to me.

I make prints in petri dishes..once the cap opens flat fits in well. I get condensation buildup too though..The cap prints for 24-48 hours then the print sits with no cap for another 24 hours and the water evaporates..Thats with the petri closed at all times (not sealed with anything though)..then when no more water drops, wrap up with celophane.

"life is like a drop of rain getting closer and closer to falling into a lake, and then when you hit the lake there is no more rain drop, only the lake."

Growing with bags, start to finish (including my new grain and substrate prep)
Anyone looking to start bulk tubs/mono tubs/shotgun hybrids? Good tubs to use..

It will be nice and dry tomorrow. You were correct to take it out of the bag and dry it.
