does air drying have an effect on potency, or is it just not recommended cause it takes longer than using dessicant?

dessi-can't see why, lol.  :grin:  Air (fan) drying doesn't effect potency and is a good way to get the bulk of the moisture out, you can then move them to a dessicant chamber to get them nice and crispy.  Just don't use heat to dry em, heat effects potency.  :laugh:

Actually, it is the opposite. The fruit has so much water in them that unless you use obscene amounts of dessicant, or reduce the pressure, the fruit will start to rot before it fully dries. If you blow a fan across the fruit, it will take out nearly all the moisture within a day or two. After that, you can use the desicant to finish the job and get them bone dry.

Just another spore in the wind.
