I finally got a shroom with a decent cap. I'm trying to print it in a ziplock bag. Does this look ok? If it don't please tell me what to do.:thumbup: or :thumbdown:

I would crack the bag open a little and put it in a dry cool spot for a day. This is how I used to do my prints, until I started using foil. Its simple and works great. G'luck

Instead of using a glass, I covered the caps & foil with the cover of a rice steamer, which has four small holes on the top for steam ventillation - with a towel on top of that - last night and it seemed to work well - maybe I was just lucky.

Usually they dry out too fast before even getting a chance to drop. Then again, I'm trying to get prints at the "veil going to break any second" stage of maturity, not "caps leveled-out-flat" stage.

The steamer lid worked though ! :eusa_clap

Well here's my first attempt. It dropped some spores in one spot so I moved it to get two prints in one bag. There is some moisture left in the bag, should I let that dry before seal the bag?

Good job man, those look nice.:thumbup: I would defintely let them dry out before you seal it up for storage though.
