slice the shroomies up--they dry faster and they stain a nice blue!

yep, you can tear them in half right down the middle by holding the bottom of the stem with both hands and gently pulling the two halves apart...

or, put them in there, its okay if they are touching each other or even layered. Put the next tray on and load it up, fill the whole damn thing then put the lid on, now put a weight on the lid but dont block the hole. Make sure the trays line up wonce you have the weight on it or the airflow will be fucked. You can even leave it loose and once they start drying they will shrink and the trays will start to come in contact

darn soy a think thats the only way eh? i guess i'll figure something out i'd really like to keep em intact... sometimes i just like to sit with the mushrooms.. dried.. not even eat them.. just meditate.. i feel their structure is key to this meditation too.. maybe not everything, its all energy, but keeping them whole just feels nice..

thanks for your suggestions though guys! much appreciated! :smile:

I had the same problem! So I came to the solution of, fan drying them for 24-48 hours, then put them in. Fan drying gives it a good kick start.

Its ok, I think your post just wasnt there yet, I think he'll learn just fine.

I just leave them all stacked on loose if the mushrooms hold up any trays. As said, they dry still..

All you need to do is bet a tupperware box,put a small bowl of desiccant in there, put a screen over the bowl, and rest your nice shroomies on the screen. Put a fan in there, and close the lid. In a day or 2 they should be crackling dry and in perfect condition.
