Should shrooms touch dessicant
    #747855 - 07/15/02 12:05 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

I am about to harvest my shrooms from my mycobags, thanks for the advice guys. I am wondering can you place shrooms directly on the dessicant pellets or do you need to use a screen. in addition I am planning on fanning them at the same time. how long till they are cracker dry?!

You do not want to place them on the desiccant. Use a screen. Desiccant is no consumable. As for fanning them, let the desiccant do its job.

If you open the container that your mushrooms and desiccant is in, the desiccant will not be able to work properly. Instead of drying the mass that is in the container, the desiccant will now be trying to dry the whole room.

It should dry within 48 hours my friend. But you must decide whether you are going to use desiccant or the fan drying method. If you do it both ways, then you are just wasting desiccant.

Fan first, then desiccant. Helps prolong the amount of time before your desiccant becomes saturated.

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

Both just like anno said.
Fan for 24 hours till they are mostly dry then place in the desicant chamber.

That way it is faster and you save desicant.
I am still on the first box i ever bought doing it this way.

Good idea to fan for maybe a day or so then throw the shrooms in with the dessicsant. But DONT let them sit directly on that stuff. Use a screen or put a baggie of dessicant in with your shrooms in to an air tight jar, leave the baggie open though. Make sure to check the dessicant and change it whne it needs it. Once the shrooms are dry throw them in the freezer or fridge and they should last until you use them. Cracker crisp too.
