Possible drying contamination
    #3532095 - 12/22/04 04:18 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I have a question about contamination during or after drying. I had two casings, one of orissa's and the other was b plus. i had to move recently, and so they came with. The orissa casing stopped growing after the first flush so i tore a chunk of mycelium out and found that nasty green mold. My other casing is doing wonderful, but when im drying the ones i harvest, one to two days later they turn very blue and start to smell a little. I know that the psilocybin will turn blue when it oxidises, but the whole situation doesnt seem right. Im just using a lamp to dry them, as i just recently paid for my entire set-up (first time grower) and i dont have any money right now for a drying chamber and desiccant. Is it possible that the one casing contaminated the other? I dont think so, so I know im doing something wrong. What is it?

-Ick. Heat and light break down the chemicals you're trying to preserve. Try fanning them instead, cutting them into halves/quarters will speed up the drying proccess this way. it's hard to get cracker dry shrooms with a fan without cutting them.

If they're still not quite dry, a day on top of your computer monitor, covered, will be low heat and no light, so it'll dry them. i doubt the temps. get high enough on your monitor to break down anything noticable.

Heat/Light = Bad for drying shrooms. Just set them on the back of your monitor and place a piece of paper over them. The vents on the back of the monitor work like a dehydrator and will suck the moisture out of them in a day or so.
