Today i started getting some food ready for my new sulcata baby for winter feeding so I don't have to depend on just store bought stuff.I am going to dehydrate blooms for ROS and Opuntia using an electric dehydrator. I picked enough to fill the dehydrator to see how well it would work. The first thing I do is soak them in ice water to get all the little critters out that may be hiding inside them Then I separate the bloom from the fruit Then lay them on the trays. I already had some ROS drying The cactus blooms I cut yesterdays blooms in half to open them up. After a few hours they are dry I can do this as long as things bloom. After they are dried I store everything in paper bags in a dry place.
