urgent: am i drying these wrong?!
    #2116358 - 11/17/03 02:14 PM (13 years, 24 days ago)

i have two dessicant chambers set up, a glass bowl with 2 inches of dessicant with a paper towel over it, then 3 inches of space up i have a wire screen w/ the mushies on it, bowl is covered with saran wrap. quite a few of the mushies are turning a blueish greenish color. a few caps have turned black completly. most of the mushrooms i have seen that are dried are still a whiteish tan color. what am i doing wrong????? and are the ones that have turned color still good to eat?

hoping i didnt fuck up an awesome harvest,

That's psilocybin oxidation. They get bruised with a bluish sometimes greenish color to it, it normally happens if you handle or touch the mushrooms. In extreme cases, they might turn almost black, which i think is your case.
They are still good to go. Just dry them as fast as you can....

Dont worry too much about the color of the bluish green, the black caps are also probably nothing, most of the time it is just spores (dont ask me how they get up there) try wiping the black off with a damp paper towel if it easily comes off its just spores and you have nothing to worry about if it doesnt id be more cautious and crawl around in the contam forum until you find something it might be. Over all though it sounds fine to me.

It is really a hassle to dry shrooms using dessicant alone. Fan dry em first!

The mantra is correct. 24 hours of fan drying is best, followed by 10 hours in a "SEALED" container with damprid
