My Harvest is Turning Dark Blue After 2 Days of Air-Drying, What Does This Mean?
    #24440957 - 06/28/17 12:18 AM (3 years, 10 months ago)

I started harvesting Monday Morning from my Treasure Coast pf-tek style cakes. At first they were beautiful and perfectly colored, but as I dry them under a fan from like 4 feet away, I noticed they are becoming withered with a dark blue tint. I've looked at other's dried specimens and they retained their beige hue. What does this color mean? Will it affect potency? What is the best thing to do with them from here? Advice very appreciated.

You should really use a food dehydrator.  Maybe put them in the oven on the lowest temperature with the door open and the fan on them

It's because you aren't drying them correctly

What you are seeing is all the magic in the shrooms oxidizing, making your shrooms weaker and weaker

Get a food dehydrator, a cheap as oyster or whatever the brand is

Heat from a dehydrator isn't going to weaken your shrooms

It's like 30 bucks for a cheap dehydrator

Get one

:thumbdown: fuckin paper towel tek it's sad this is still being spread around as a viable tek. A dehydrator will save you much more than you'd even imagine. You won't regret the investment.

How do you dry them properly prior to use of a dehydrator? Is this batch still good to eat?

The one in the link above is the one I have.

1)Put your mushrooms in the trays.
2)Plug in the dehydrator.
3)Wait 24 hours.
4)Unplug and take mushrooms out of dehydrator.
5)Store/Enjoy mushrooms.

:thumbsup:

Edit: You don't dry them prior to the dehydrator. Once you're done harvesting they go straight into the dehydrator and it drys them. If you're gonna eat yours better sooner then later. They should still be fine for now.

+123812942385235892 for a dehydrator.

A lot of my stuff turns blue in the dehydrator, or immediately after harvest.  Different genetics do it to different degrees.  My sense is that higher water content makes them more prone to it.  So it doesn't mean they have had a significant decrease in activity.  Eating them soon would be preferable as you won't be able to get them cracker dry with just a fan; use lots of desiccant packs in the bag if you can't.  If you have a top exhaust fan on your windows desktop PC computer, that might be the best place to put them.


--------------------


I spawned some popcorn casings and had double-overlay cause I didn't put enough hydrogen peroxide in my automated aquarium mister.  I only got one mushroom so I cut off the head part where the seeds fall from and put it in a jar of LC and sprayed it all over a tin of PF cakes I made with gravel, cardboard, and bisquick in my microwave.  I think it will be good cause B+ is so potent.
Triggered yet?

No, this does not look right...

This cake was rock-hard and after trying to rehydrate it, it never fully recovered and didn't bear fruit. Time to redunk most likely? How long do I dunk it for to soften it and get a more flushing?
