can shrooms be to dry???
    #4314033 - 06/19/05 04:48 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

i was wondering cuz i put mine in dehydrator for 24 hrs on the lowest heat setting and when i check on them the caps are crispy and the stems seem dry but there kind of spungy (not wet though) and if i try to brake the stems they dont snap.. im just worried that if i leave them in the dehydrator to long it will hurt the good stuff.. ive been taking them off and putting them in the freezer.. ate some last night.. they did the trick.. just dont wanna waste anything:)

I've never had a problem with them being too dry. Caps always dried faster than the stems for me.

the stems are most likely wet inside

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

I just leave them in the dehydrator until the whole shrooms are dry & nada problem. Fat - thick stems dry quicker, if you split them in half - the long way.

They should snap like a cracker, no bend to them. They cant be to dry.

If they bend, they still have moisture in them which means they can still rot. Dry them until they are cracker dry. There's no such thing as too dry.

not only can they rot, the moisture will degrade the psilo inside at an accelerated rate leaving you with impotent shrooms.

Maybe you should cut the caps off and dry the caps and stems separately. I don't like the idea of continuing to heat the caps if you dont need to. And split them like agar said.

Impotent shrooms are cured by a 24hr soak in viagra tea  :doggystyle:
