well if they are like the ones inside shoeboxes then the material the dessicant is contained in should already be permeable. however if your just buying the dessicant in bulk packages, the containers may be impermeable so as to keep the dessicant fresh until it arrives.

if the bag can "breathe" then you wont have to open it. my guess

that would work, but if its something like damprid which melts as it absorbs moisture you should remember to pour off the excess liquid.

I don't think silica gel (dessicant bags) turn into liquid. I think they retain as muc liquid as possible then just stop retaining it. You can bake them to get the moisture out and reuse them however. I wouldn't open them though. I'd just leave them in the bags (if they're the breathable type bags) it'll make it a lot easier to remove the dessicant if needed.

Full points, MrSleep. Indeed, silica gel, which is the little clear pellets in desiccant bags which are found in shoe-boxes, boxes with electrical equipment etc., doesn't 'melt'. It just soaks up as much water as possible, without any visible changes. If silica gel is 'wet' (you can't actually feel or see this, so you'll have to trust your intu?tion on that one), you can bake it at moderate temperatures in an oven in order to dehydrate it for re-use.
Make sure the silica gel doesn't come into direct contact with your shrooms, as it appears to be poisonous.
Just put one or more bags on the bottom of an air-tight container, and put the shrooms above them (on a little mesh or something). Pre-dry the shrooms with a fan, as totally drying them with silica gel takes a lot of time and silica gel.
