    Plant Putrefaction w/o Radical Humidity?

    If I were to say, take a fresh plant, chop it up and put it in a flask, then put it on a gentle heat, allowed for radical humidity to escape, and then attempted to induce putrefaction and blackness, would this be considered alchemical?

    Please don't create threads called "alchemy" or "alchemical" only. It makes it hard to understand what it is + all threads are about this regardless. Can you re-title this please.


    Donít let the delusion of reality confuse you regarding the reality of the illusion.

    Why ever would you want to lose your radical humidity?
    Art is Nature in the flask; Nature is a vial thing.

    How do I do that?

    ... Well.... I thought that you have to remove Radical Humidity in order from death to take place in the form of putrefaction....

    I've just re-titled it.

    Also, elixirmixer, please refrain from 'flooding' the forums (too much).

    It's difficult enough to keep track of ever-changing topics and lines of thought on single threads, and even more so on multiple threads.

    A question to consider in this context:

    What do we usually do if we want to PREVENT plant matter from putrefying? Or, more generally, to prevent food from spoiling?

    I believe it's more common to remove the superfluous humidity. The superfluous Radical Humidity, practically, is kept in a separate flask in case it's needed to re-moisturize the work further along.

    First time ever in my life that I see the words 'superfluous' and 'Radical Humidity' written side by side

    Well, you're only a virgin once

    But I'm a perpetual virgin (being a Virgo)

    I was trying to describe a process of distillation and cohobation/circulation (which apparently I did poorly at ha); I specifically remember reading that having enough radical humidity in the first place is one of the many challenges to lab work, and it's preservation is essential to success.

    Quite so, my dear Virgo

    That's why there's no such thing as 'superfluous' Radical Humidity...

    And as far as the 'accidental' humidity is concerned... Off with its ugly head!
