desiccation desecration
    #653194 - 05/30/02 11:43 AM (15 years, 4 months ago)

Hi All,

I need to build an emergency desiccation chamber (my pretties are ready much sooner than I thought they would be) and I was wondering if anyone has ever used (in place of calcium chloride) those little packets that come in vitamin bottles that are used to absorb moisture. If so, how many should I use? I have four or five of them, and I have a three quart tupperware container (plus lots of wire mesh).

Thanks for your help as usual!

I personally didnt have much luck with the silica gel in flower drying kits... Though I can say that drierite is great at suckin the moisture out of them

If you put them in front of a fan for 12-24 hours then into the chamber they should be dry in no time

Though if your in desperate need of desicant the flower drying kits are cheep enough... you just have to replace the silica gel twice a day or so (until the mushrooms are nearly dry)

Just my 2cents

Silica gel flower drying crystals from a craft shop, but fan dry them first.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

Thanks everyone! I found some CaCl at my neighborhood hardware store. My babies are now sitting in front of a fan until tomorrow morning, upon which I will transfer them to the drying chamber.

You guys rock!
