Dark blue when dried stronger shrooms?
    #1155412 - 12/19/02 03:45 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I fan dried about 120 wet grams for about 12 hours and then placed in my dessicant chamber as always but the stems turned dark dark blue.......as dark as ball point pen ink.... Will these be stronger?.....weaker?..... I dry this way with all my babies, but these were exceptionally blue.Could it be I placed to many in the chamber at one time and they dried to slow causing this bruising?

blue means oxidization of active chemicals, so in the bluing, you're losing potency. though those very potent shrooms, will definantly blue more than others, during drying or picking. So it's up in the air, don't know which you meant.. but that should answer =)

Ill make the assumption the dark blue is from bruising. I've heard people (no one who knows what the hell is up when growing) that blue was good, more potent. Its most likely just bruising. The change in potentcy shouldnt be that dramatic.

No they arent more potent when you see blue on them, thats just the charicteristic of the mushroom when its getting bruised. The more they are mishandled and mistreated (Left in light, not in sealed container, squished and bruised, left in less than ideal hot or warm temps, frozen when not 100% dry)...all of these things have an impact on them potency wise more or less. It sounds to me that they needed more drying, next time do 48hours fan drying finishing them off with 24hours in the chamber. Anyone else agree, disagree?

I`m thinking you are right NorthernSoul......... bet it was to many gram wise in the chamber at once. Next time I`ll try 48 hours under the fan then in the chamber. Bet that will cure the bluing prob........ definetly not mis-handling lol.... I treat them like a newborn
