Easiest way to dry shrooms.
    #3439171 - 12/02/04 08:27 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I read over some of the FAQ's and I cant decide which drying method to choose...

I have all the commmon household items...and am willing to spend 5 bucks for anything else.

What exactly DONT the shrooms want when being dryed? temps? humidity?
Im looking for a cheap way but I dont want to loose any potency.

Any help will be appriciated. Thanks.

you dant want temps over 130F but to be safe i would say over 100F one of the best ways to save potency is desiccant. or the fan will save potency also. for 35-40 bucks you can buy a food dehydrator which is one of the fastest ways, with very little effects potency if it has the temp setting of 95F.

how easy it to find desiccant??

Any major stores that sell this?

Does exposure to light take away potency?

Do they need to be in an airtight container?

Whats up?

if you go to a crafts store they have silica gel in in the flower drying section... just ask them if you cant find it, they are all nice old ladies, also in the paint section of some stores you can find damp-rid....i've heard of kitty litter with the crystals.. i forget who makes it being used, but never heard about effectivness..

The easiest way is to set them out. Just put them on a screen or something and they dry out. If you are going to use desiccant, let then sit in front of a fan for several hours then put them in with the desiccant, because desiccant drys them really slowly. Put the desiccant in a air tight container with a screen or something to separate it from the shrooms

Hands down, beg, borrow, thift store shop, or retail.......
Get a dehydrator, with temp control. Small, simple, cheap, no BRAIN or hands operation, set @ 95F & FORGET for a day or 2.

I put mine on some kitchen roll on the bottom of my cannabis grow cupboard, 4 feet below a 250W HPS, and place a black T-shirt over the top. Works great, it's quite cool under the T-shirt, the water slowly evaps into it and they are cracker dry in 24 hours. Haven't noticed any loss in potency. I would then use silica gel etc if I wanted to keep them for longer than 2-3 months.
