Mushrooms turned a dark color after dehydrating. Is this normal?

EDIT: Im not sure whats going on in shroomery but it doesnt let you enlarge the pictures right now... hopefully you guys can still tell what they look like

Hi everyone, i just took my first fruits out of the dehydrator and noticed that they have a dark almost black color is some spots.

I dehydrated at 160°F for 24 hours.

This is what they look like now after dehydrating:



This is what they looked like before dehydrating:

Is this normal?

Thanks

Yeah they often darken when dehydrating, nothing to worry about as long as they're cracker dry.

Alright sweet thanks for the reply. Gonna try these bad boys out tonight probably.

It is a cubensis strain called E4K that was stabilized by willy myco. He says its was a wild albino cubensis. This means it should probably be usual cubensis strength correct? Or is it still possible for a regular cubensis variety to be as strong as something like PE? Im asking because im not sure how high/low of a dose to test these out on. I dont wanna eat a eighth and then end up tripping insanely hard or something lol.

Just be sure you're not leaving the plastic tray in the bottom of the dehydrator. They'll turn pitch black.

As a general rule of thumb, anything outside of PE is just a regular cube.

Are you talking about that circular plastic tray that sits ontop of one of the dehydrator trays? Does that restrict the airflow in the dehydrator or something?

And sweet, ill probably try out a full eighth then. Appreciate the response :super:
