Storing Kombucha Mushrooms

Before we left on vacation, I made three batches of kombucha to brew while we were gone. I could come home, refill the empties we drank on vacation, and start brewing again. I went to grab a mushroom today for the first new batch and discovered ... [gasp] ... no starter. And even a few dried-up mushrooms.

Apparently those mushrooms were hungry. So here's the deal: if you're planning to leave your mushrooms untended for a week, give them each at least 12-16 ounces of starter tea to keep them fed and moist until you return.
