Sun Drying VS Drying in dark
    #3561969 - 12/30/04 05:20 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Looked into this subject and couldnt find much help when drying, is it better to dry under the sun or in the dark. I like how they turn blue under the sun but dont know how/if it effects the mushroom itself?? :confused:

What exactly do you mean, in the open? Like Open, or just laying around?

And it's agruable, but some here believe that the chemical (psylicobyen(sp?) dies or, Fades a bit when it's exposed to heat, My suggestion is to just fan for 24-48hours and then use some type of desiccant, damp rid works well, theres others im sure and im almost + that someone will name more, Good luck =)

And you can Pc again, but moisture content might become a problem, might be better to jus either throw that sub., out or mix it with some new stuff ( new grains/pf, w/e)

The nice thing about being here (5280+ feet above sea level) is that after 2 or three days of fanning the bitches are cracker-ass dry. No damp-rid needed up here.

Sunlight has UV rays that could slightly degrade potency.

fan dry in or out of light but no excessive light, then put in a jar on a grate with desiccant on the bottom until ready to use, a little over kill but it keeps them bone dry for a long long time

So I was at a friends house last night and he tells me that if you dont boil the shrooms after you pick them that 1 in every 3 will be "deadly poisonous" I dont think this is true and have never heard it, but is there any validity to this??

Your friend knows nothing, boiling your mushrooms would ruin them. Best way to dry is a good dehydrator with no heat or any fanning method then desicant as described above. I personally don't like desicant alone, that is to say with no fan drying first,(this is all a dehydrator really is).
