Drying questions, whaat about the sun, and a good sponser
    #4087957 - 04/23/05 11:21 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Hi, am curious about drying the mushrooms. From what I've read I should avoid using ovens or sunlight, and use a dehydrator or the chemical stuff in the bowl to absorb the moisture fom the shrooms. SO my question is, why does the shroomery have this pic then. I owuld love to make mine this color if I could. Are these cubenisis? Also, can someone recommend a good sponser to buy a kit from. I;m from Canada if that matters. Thanks alot

Nathan

Ah, your from Canada, you wont understand....J/K!..maybe...

Um, even though that looks pretty, you don't want your mushroom all blue like that. That means the psilocybe has oxidized, and that can reduce the potency of your mushroom "allegedly". Drying in the sun can also mean flies and squirrels and wombats could steal your lil friends, and that's not a good thing!

I dry by placing my mushrooms on plates inside a 50 qt Rubbermaid. I have a small fan that is taped upside down inside the container. Turn it on, and leave it alone for 2-3 days, and BAM, cracker dry mushrooms. I don't take kindly to chemicals and my mushies.

dehydrators with no or very low heat are fine to use, you can fan dry and use a
disiccant like damprid as well, there is a great selection of ways to dry and
store them, use the search engine and search, check the option for main posts
only so that you arent weeding through thousands of posts. and varry you search
requirements for words like dehydrator or drying methods

the pic illustrates the oxydation of psilocin/psilocybin in the sun dried mushrooms

do not buy a kit, just decide what tek you want to use and get all the supplies from local stores. You should order your spores and your jars if you'd like from a shroomery sponsor though. All of them are good. Ive ordered from ralphster and spores101, and both have great service and fast shipping.

Blue does NOT equal more potent...
