  • Sterilize a large salt shaker by rinsing it in a bleach solution of one part bleach to nine parts water. Allow drying completely.
  • Remove the frond from the paper bag, tapping it lightly to shake off any remaining spores.
  • Pour the spores, dust and dried bits of frond into the sterilized salt shaker.
