I did a freeze dry on my wild crafted Plantain. I set the final drying time shelf temperature at 95 degrees. Wondering if I should lower the shelf temperature some more. I am under the impression that 100 is too

warm but don’t know if there is an ideal temp.

Looks great.

Cooler and darker is always better.

Regarding plantain and not heating it up:
A friend asked me why Rosemary Gladstar would have a hot infusion recipe that includes plantain if medicinal properties are lost when it's heated up. From Doc's plantain module, I think I understand that some constituents, not all, are lost in heating plantain. Is that right? And does anyone know which are reserved if in a hot tea and which are lost when heated?
