help BLACK SHROOMS!!
    #1599767 - 06/01/03 11:49 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

OK I am NEW to drying and after a day using a fan and then a day in a sealed container with SILICA my shrooms ARE getting dryer BUT there is what "COULD" be an intense blueing reaction but if thats it its SOO BLUE is seems black

anyway the shrooms were handled LOTS and when they were put in the container they were wrapped kinda tight in some screening


SO.............

is this nothing to worry about (other than some lost Psilocybin??) 
I am ALMOST SURE it cannot be rotting because even after using the fan they were kinda dry

all I want is some dry shroomies dammit! :mad:

do I have a problem with these Dark shrooms ?
or not

and how do you guys dry your cats shrooms fan for how many days and then what
I thought one day of fanning and one of silica would do it but the shrooms are still "a little" wet and SOOO DARK

I have had some shrooms bruise very dark as well and I'm 100% sure it wasn't rot...I'm sure a rotting shroom will smell....just smell it...if it smells lightly shroomy(they lose a lot of smell when dried) then you should be fine

EDIT: btw I also use fan drying then silica gel :smile:

Always first dry them using a fan before using desiccant.

Black shrooms usually steal the food from the other shrooms. Then ,when they don't grow as big, they blame it on the whiter shrooms, and make them pay reparations.

well instead of one day fanning and one day drying (with Silica)
I am going to try 2 days fan one day silica

and this time around I am trying not to handle the shroomies to much I want some nice looking shrooms

i've only had experience with drying fairly large amounts... but i've found that 1 day fan 1 day chamber just doesn't work!

fan drying for 1 day completely dries the outside (eating some, the inside is still cold and wet (makes it taste dirty!). dessicant chamber for the next 24 hours - it seems to draw some moisture out, but the shrooms now feel more moist on the outside... i think the dessicant slowly draws the moisture out of the centre.

from this.. i've worked out that fan for 1 day, then dessicant for a day, then fan again before dessicant again is the best method of drying for me!

cracker dry in 3-4 days, is the fastest i can do.

This is....welll....an unnecessary, some would say stupid way to do it.

Simply dry it with a fan for 2-3 days, depending on the relative humidity where you are, THEN end dry it with the desiccant.

Desiccant with 2 C.

but there is some truth to what he is saying
because I found my "black shrooms" seemed a little wetter in the cap area after desiccant


anyway I will try the longer fan time Anno (love the pics!!!)
funny thing is I am doing small ammounts and I have a warm room(warmest in the house ......its a kitty paradise !...I like it to though)

with the fan I got them pretty damn dry but I want to be able to seal these puppies in a jar(that could sound bad if you didnt know what I was talking about :smile:) for a week or months at a time

I heard someone I  trust and respect say he doesnt use ANY chems and no fan !

just a dry warm room
I thought with a dry warm room and a fan I would be set
but I guess not

Then your desiccant is spent.

If the desiccant is fresh, the mushrooms dry completely.
But if you don?t pre-fan, it gets spent very fast.

Fallen spores will make a Mushie appear black. I ate a black one Sat & it FUCKED ME UP! Of course these were not grown indoors.

FYI: spores will continue to drop even after the mushroom has been picked.

Nah, don't panic just yet. I've seen several species of (non psilocybe) mushrooms turn pitch black during the drying process. If they don't smell oddly, just taste 'em; the proof of the pudding...

Aren't black shrooms a result of drying in the dark? Someone I know fanned his shrooms in the closet and they came out dark as well....
