Just put them on a plate and put something under the plate to tilt it at a 40 degree angle and have a fan blow air to it constantly. Theyll be dry intime. No need for that other stuff

Go to Ace Hardware and buy some damp rid or damp gone. Don't bother going to home depot they don't carry it. I use damp rid and it works really well.

Go check the local thrift stores like "Goodwill", "Value Village"...etc
You can pick up an American Harvest food dehydrator for less than $8.00 and they usually have never been used...these cost $69.00 brand new.
I have found 4 of these so far...and sold a couple to my friends.
Make sure you get the model with the temperature control.
Set it at 95 degrees F...and they will be dry in no time.

good luck!

Road... let me say you constantly have workable answers for the average cultivator... which is MUCH appreciated. Your radio shack RH monitoring device and this are invaluable... quick question.... it has been known that heat may lessen potency....in any of your friends experiences, has this dehydrator compromised the potency? thanks as always

Thanks for the compliment...I think.  :grin:
lolzz

I have never noticed any difference in potency between shrooms dried by a dehydrator and ones dryed by a fan and desiccant.

No loss of potency in low levels of heat....IMHO

Now if you are talking about making Tea...yeah there might be some potency loss depending on hot you make the Tea...but I haven't had any Shroom Tea since 1983.
We used to make up batches of Shroom Tea back in the day...with our Liberty Caps that we picked.

I don't see any loss in potency from shroom tea. As Anno has said numerous times you can cook shrooms in boiling (212degreesF) water with no noticeable loss in potency. The only time I have seen potency degrade from heat is when the shrooms were cooked on a pizza (375 degrees) for about 20 minutes.

True, if anything the potencey with a mushroom tea from ground shrooms is increased compared to just chewing the mushrooms.

I put my in the oven at 100F with the oven door open for like an hour.......oh ya one time i got impatient cause my cakes wouldnt flush and i made tea out of the cakes by boiling the cakes in hot water then filtering out the vermiculite. It turned out to be a very nice trip and i didnt think it would work but it was great.

I didnt say that well... Roadkill mentioned a device sold at radioshack that measures relative humidity and temperature. It is digital, and has a nice user interface. Looks like a steal at 19 bucks.
