My shrooms won't dry:S
    #3971515 - 03/26/05 06:15 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

My shrooms from my first flush have been laying under a fan for 5 days. They can still be bend and won't break. In the nights my fan is off (because of the sound. What can be the problem??

is it humidity where you are trying to dry them? also how big of fan are you using and how long do you keep it on? maybe you can try opening the shrooms up, expose the inside to the fan. that might help

sometimes my friends wont dry for a week or so.....depends on weather  :yesnod:

a small bathroom with the vent fan on helps....if you can manage to use one.

for a quick and easy fix since you'll never get them 100% dry, bake some white
rice in the oven at 300F for 30 minutes, add the mushrooms and rice into a
sealable container, the rice will absorb the moisture

1. bake Epsom salts in an oven til rock hard
2. break it up real good
3. put in a Tupperware container
4. sit paper towels on top of Epsom salts
5. sit mushrooms on top of paper towel
6. close lid and let it work.

results guaranteed or your money back. :smile:
