Dehydrator
« on: March 16, 2010, 07:56:31 PM »

Ok i ordered a dehydrator with a cooling fan inside and ten shelves. My question is when i use the dehydrator will my guys stay the same bulk size, I mean when you dry them out just with a fan and let them sit, they tend shrink and shrivel.

They will also shrink and shrivel. It's the loss of water that does that.

The fruits are 90% water. You will see significant shrinkage when you dry them out completely (cracker dry).

you cant keep them plump and safely store them without them going bad.  The water is what will cause the decay.

They have to shrink hen they dry, no way to retain size and weight.

You do not need to keep them plump. The "magic" is in the dried fruit.

Penis Envy is also a solid strain, for meaty fruits. You don't want to grow that strain straight from cakes though. You would get better results casing or spawning to bulk.

As I mentioned in another thread I have been doing G2G transfers with the Texas strain for almost a year now and to be honest I do not see a significant difference between them and other strains as far as their appearance after drying.

I got my stuff from spores101.com. They have a good selection of prints and syringes. Got my order in a few days and I'm pretty sure they have penis envy. Ha Ha. ( poor joke )
