removing perlite from shrooms
    #4528257 - 08/13/05 12:29 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

so ive been using perlite in my fruiting chamber with brf cakes, and the mushrooms always have perlite on them when i pick them. i dont like trying to wipe it off when i harvest them because i end up leaving little blue fingermarks all over them and i still cant get all of the perlite off when i do. i always miss some. and after they are dry, it seems impossible to get it off as well because it gets stuck in the folded shrivledness of the dry shroom. im sick of feeling the crunch of perlite on my teeth when i bite into my shittakes. these are the last couple cakes im gonna be using perlite with, but theyre still fruiting and i got a couple more flushes left.
the best way i can think of is dunking the freshly picked shrooms in water or run some water over them to wash the perlite off. i havent tried it yet though. does anyone have any objections to this? would washing the mushrooms for any reason adversely affect the drying process? or would it not matter since theyre mostly water anyway.
i wouldnt think it would matter, but im asking first just for assurance, because i have a deeply embedded fear of hurting mushrooms that stems from early childhood trauma

no i dont. its all real

put something between the shrooms and the perlite. put the cake on the lid or some foil maybe?

Quit worrying so much. Rub off the perlite and dont worry about te blue marks..or dry them first and rub it off when theyre dry..the stems flake clean.
