You shouldn't. Don't do it with the heater. You need one with a fan.

Everything I say on this board is a lie.

Eat more string cheese. It's good for you.

heat breaks down the goodies, just put em on some papertowels in front of a fan for 24-48hrs... if you want to keep em around for a while use a descicant.

Leave them on there until they are dry. If you think that you can tell the difference between ones dried on a dehydrator (even with out a fan) that doesn't get to hot, then you've never actually done it. I've dried pounds like this and no one has noticed a difference from when I fan dried then used a desiccant with no heat. Not to say a dehydrator with a fan wouldnt work better as would point a fan at the dehydrator.

Takes about 24 hours to dry 2 ounces over 4 trays on my dehydrator without a fan. For only a few shrooms I'd bet 6-12 hours. But bend all of them in different places to make sure all the moisture is out. They shouldnt bend at all and snap easily.
