Drying Salvia
    #2112969 - 11/16/03 10:38 PM (13 years, 26 days ago)

Hi, I have 2 salvia plants and I have dried leaves from them many times, but I am curious how you all dry your sally leaves.

I want to get some nice green dry leaves , but when I let the leaves sit out they go brown :thumbdown:, just like when the plants dont have enough water.

Anyway whats your method????????
Pros Cons?????
whats the best
peace

Quote:

Preparing the Leaves Salvia divinorum leaves should be dried in a food dehydrator on a medium high setting (130-140 degrees). At this temperature, drying will take between one to two hours depending on the size of the leaves. I remove the mid ribs on the large leaves and they never take more than one hour to dry. Drying at lower temperatures causes the leaves to lose their green color and turn brown. The leaves are 90% water, so ten grams of fresh leaves equals one gram of dried material. It takes a lot of fresh leaves to produce one ounce of dried leaves; a gallon size plastic bag stuffed full with leaves weighs only two ounces.

you can ose an oven if it will go low enough. just set it a lil bit high and keep the door propped open a bit so the convection will keep air circulating. if the air is not moving they will not dry verry fast.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.
