Flow hood to dry shrooms?
    #3402677 - 11/24/04 09:39 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Well, is this okay? It seems common sense to me, use a really powerful fan to dry shrooms without spending time and money on a separate one.

Any problems?

Thanks lots.

The hepa filters in a flow/hood are spendy.

The less you run it - the longer the filters - LAST.

To use one as a simple fan is a waste.

Buy yourself a food dehydrator from GoodWill -or- any thrift store for $10.

For that matter install a squirrel cage fan on the lid of a 5 gallon plastic bucket, drill a few holes around the base of the bucket, hang a pillow case half way in the bucket, put in a pound or 3 of shrooms, add the lid & plug it in. Run it for a day in a warm room. That will remove 96% ++ of the moisture from the shrooms & good desiccant will remove the remainder.

Are those Brazils in that red pot? I'd listen to the old hand there..

A nice powerful exhaust fan with no filters would be cool though..

If your filter is easily removable, you could just use the blower for some serious air.
