I can get some of these bags from my job.

Would this work for drying shrooms?

yep, silica gel is a dessicant (as written on the package) and you will use it just like any other dessicant

Just make sure its dry, and that it hasnt already absorbed lots of moisture, as it will greatly affect the drying properties of the dessicant. Most people like to dry thier dessicant in the oven after heavy drying of mushrooms.

Thats what I thought.
Wow many of these bags would I need. Should I leave it in the bag or take it out?

You'll need as many as you need. We don't know how big or small your setup is.

What would a good ratio be? That is about 400-500ml(guess). How many wet grams of shrooms would that dry?

My setup is real small now. It will gro as I get better at growing. I go hunting and have found about a pound of shrooms before.

I just need a rough idea of how much is needed.

I have been drying on paper towels with a fan. I have a 65watt grow light I turn on them. This takes about 4-6 days to get cracker dry.
