Yes it will work. My friend used one last week, and he gave me some of the shrooms. They were potent as hell still. You have to leave them in there a long time depending on the size. He had a couple of stipes that were in there for over 24 hours and still were not cracker dry.

What brand would you recommend? Is there a relatively cheap (<$50) one that will keep the low temps (<95F)?

Thanks!

95F is a little too high imo. Yes dessicant can be difficult to find (or so they say) and messy, but why spend 30 bucks on a dehydrater when a carton of damprid costs just a couple bucks and most people already own a fan of some sort. Don't go through all the trouble of growing only to ruin your harvest trying to dry them

Dessicant has actually become alot easier to find around here... I see it next to the moth balls in almost every supermarket..You can get 1/2 gallon damp rid for 3.50

it would also be easier IMO to have a dehydrator just for the fact of prying eyes. friends, family, slugs, whatever. dehydrators look like they belong in kitchens, mushrooms are a lil less to convince. yes, my house is infested with fungus THAT BAD!!!! hehe

you dry yours in the kitchen??? wouldn't they be more suspect? Like mom wondering why the kitchen smells like mushrooms.


I'd be hard pressed to get people to believe I like to make jerkey and fruit leather in my room in my spare time.

Good point soochi, I was trying to figure out that conundrum too. I guess a dehydrator will proliferate the ever so unique smell? Maybe it would be best stick to the fan/dessicant, but I don't feel like recharging the dessicant and it will add up to keep purchasing new stuff...hum...

95 degrees is just a warm day.  I doubt that would impact the potency practically at all.  I am intended to put my kitten's mushies in the dehydrator (the one from walmart) for 2 days at 95 degrees (a hot day :smile: ) and then put them in a dessicant chamber for just a few days, to make sure.  Sound good?
