drying poppies
    #2856733 - 07/04/04 06:08 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Well grandma has milked the  shit out of some of her pods( 3 of 11 plants are now dead and drying :smirk: )

But she want to get this drying the pods thing right before she has the other pods to contend with.

Its going real slow(on an old computer moniter..which by the way is PERFECT for drying various forms of fungus :laugh: )

She has one pod outside(cut of the plant and sitting in the sun) and 2 indoors, on the moniter.

I know what some of you are thinking, leave them on the plant till they dry right???, well grandma CANT do that, because with all the cuts on the pods they are starting to draw unwanted attention, so its drying time baby :smirk:

What should she do???, she knows that opiate akaloids degrade at HIGH heat , so an oven on a low heat might be a good idea right???

Or a fan??? and then into a jar with silica????

What worked for your grandma???? :tongue:

(she wants to get this right, a wasted pod(mold) is NOT COOL) :smirk:

what most people do is just hang the pods upside down, held up with clothes pins, in a dark closet for a while....it helps to have a small fan in there as well. i don't think drying with silica gel is a good idea. a fast way to dry pods is to break up the pods into smaller pieces and lay them on a window screen....proped up by something, lay another screen ontop...so the pod pieces don't blow off the screen once dry...then just have a fan blow directly over until dry. this method only takes a day or two to be fully dried.
