Drying Tropane plants?
    #2873290 - 07/09/04 04:24 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Hello....i'm a long time grower/finder, first time poster in this forum. :tongue:

Recently i've been finding an enormous amount of tropane-containing plants....and in my past attempts to dry the leaves/flowers for future use, i've had NO success.

I was curious as to wether or not any of you all had any experience/tips in how to best go about drying said items...any help is appreciated.

Thanks! :grin:

What plants are you talking about?

I dont understand.. You can't figure out how to dry a plant?

I usually just string them up and hang them and dry with a fan. Otherwise I use a large metel shelfing system to dry them out.

Speaking most specifically of datura species, with the possible addition of a few belladonna specimens.

I'm not sure, maybe i was being too cautious the last time i used dried plants, but i'm guessing that there was enough of a loss of potency to make the harvest useless. I was curious as to wether or not there was a known, effective method for doing these specifically, or if i should just dry them like a few other things i know.

Air drying is your best bet. Hang them upside down outside or just pull the leaves off (leaving the petiole on each leaf), cut the roots where they connect to the main stem, Split the pods . I dont think you should be too concerned about potency. It is a highly poisonous plant family we are talking about.

I`m a big solancae fan too. Been interested in the growing and finding of them for ages. Use a propagator.
