where to find drying substances
    #981064 - 10/21/02 11:18 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I have never done a shroom grow, i am currently trying to learn as much as i can before i start, so i was wondering, where i read about growing it says in the drying stage you seal the shrooms in packets and put em in a airtight jar w/ that drying agent used in like beef jerky, can i just use those packets or should i go out and buy the actual chemical? thanks.

Fan dry to get the majority of water out, and then transfer to a home-made desiccant chamber. Those packets of desiccant used to protect clothing from dampness work well. You can also use Dry-Rite or choose from a number of other options.

My 2nd cousin has used Drierite, plain gypsum and Epsom Salts.He found Epsom Salts to be his favorite.The Drierite,though it has a handy color change indicator,doesn't hold that much water.Epsom Salts can be found at any grocery store or drugstore.

EDIT-forgot to mention that you need to bake the Salts to drive the water out...

you can also buy kitty litter, just the crystals though. It's 100% silica gel. Also this should be in the mushroom cultivation forum not here.

You need a large amount of dessicant so unless you plan on eating a ton of jerky, it would be best to purchase dessicant alone.
