its not that they will lose potency, they just may not dry quickly enough and start to rot. If the dessicant can't remove the moisture quickly enough, then they will start to rot. You can try it, but a fan is a useful thing to have, and they aren't very expensive.

A friend of a friend of a friend of a....
Uses the following method provided by mjshroomer and it works great !!!

Thanks MJ

A dehydrater is one of the best methods for drying fresh picked mushrooms. However, if a dehydrater is not available then the best method for drying mushrooms is as follows: at home, place several sheets of newspaper on a table or in a high dry area. Separate and spread the mushrooms evenly across the newspaper and make sure that they are not touching one another. After 2-3 days the mushrooms will have shrunk down to virtually nothing. This occurs because the mushrooms are approximately 95% water. The color of the mushrooms will also change as they dry. After a few days, handle a mushroom specimen to see if it has completely dried. It may feel rubbery but in no way will it break apart like a fresh stem would.
