black PE caps after drying good or bad??
    #11302073 - 10/22/09 09:26 PM (8 years, 1 day ago)

Ok, so I've picked my PE and after they dried
they turned brownish black...

My question is are they still good to eat & why are they doing that??

were they just picked premature or what's the deal??

Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated.:sad:

I'm not the most experienced grower, but some of my PEs do the same thing and it doesn't seem to affect potency or cause any problems. I think it's just something some shrooms do; nothing to worry about. I'll let others chime in, though.

if they are just dark brown and definitely dry they should be fine
if they are black and soft
that means you didnt dry them and theyre rotting

Good point. If it is just dark and dry then it should be fine. But if it is soft, oozing stuff, or just plain gross then it would probably be bad.

    Heres a picture for everyone to check out

There not squishy or wet, completely dry...

Me and my dude picked them when they had a healthy gold color and they dried up really dark brown almost black...

We removed the caps that went all the way black, are those stems still potent?

Any reason why they could be doing this? I sit my fruits in a cabinent on a glass plate to dry...

We have a shotgun chamber and a enclosed chamber with a water pump, and we're having problems once our caps are decent sized, they start turning greenish...

We fan once an hour, i think maybe our cakes have been to dry, i just dont understand how to mist the cakes without getting the penis envy wet??

Sorry for rambling, any help would be appreciated fellows!:confused:

It could be the way you are drying them.  Pretty much everyone says either use a Fan followed by a desiccant chamber or a dehydrator.  Just sitting them out usually isn't recommended.  I have some black top ones that look like aborts before I dry them too.  Actually I just checked some I have drying now and they are dark brown / blackish so I wouldn't worry about it.  Eat up!

i just did a fairly large puerto rican grow and got what i needed then let the trays just sit and fruit a couple more flushes without really tending to them
a lot of the caps dried up and i ate some and gave some to someone else also and noone's complained yet
i ate 2g dry and had a good time

I haven't grown PE yet but I have done a few APE tubs and some of my caps turn almost black after drying as well. I have always assumed that it is just very very heavy bruising and this is consistent with the widely held belief the PE is much more potent than other cubes. :2cents:
