How can I keep some desiccant inside my storage bag?
    #3813413 - 02/21/05 10:08 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I just harvested my first flush, which weighed in at about 2.7 oz fan-dried. I'm worried that it isn't completely dry and want to store it with a desiccant inside the gallon ziploc I'm keeping them in. Is there an easy way to get my hands on a bunch of silica gel packets? Otherwise will it work to make one myself out of a folded and sealed paper towel full of loose desiccant?

Also, dried shrooms in a ziploc wrapped in tinfoil will keep pretty much indefinately in the fridge, right? Thanks

you can find packets of silicagel in a bunch of places. look in some shoe boxes in the closets, they come in most packaged products that have a fabric in the construction. my brother got a poker table top for christmas and it had two huge packets in the box. the shoe dept. of a walmart is a good spot too (in no way advocate the theft of any items from any bussiness, but seriously if anybody stops you for picking up a few silicagel packets off the floor, the have got way too much free time.)



it's almost habit now that whenever i see one i pick it up. i mean usually it would just get thrown away. just look around a bit.

hope this helps...
