you should fan for 24-48 hours always so that mold doesn't grow on them. if you stick them in right away it'll take longer to dry.

You should use a fan, to evap a bunch of the moisture content - first

is there anything i can use or do as a substitute to a fan..? i dont have a fan and i would rather not buy one, i think i saw somewhere on this board that someone was hanging them from a string like buds to dry them, could i do it like that?

the best way to use a dessicating chamber is as the second part of a 2 phase drying scheme. first, you get the mushrooms very close to being dry by placing them on a fan for a couple days. then they go into a dessicator. throwing a bunch of freshly-picked mushrooms into a dessicator rarely gets them as dry as they need to be. if you live in a place where it is somewhat cold this time of year, and the air indoors dry, a fan is all you need to dry mushrooms quickly and completely. you don't even need a dessicator.

a food dehydrator is a great investment. if you buy one i guarantee you it will become one of your most important and treasured peices of mushroom equipment. i don't know why so few growers seem to have them. they dry mushrooms quickly and completely without potency loss, mess, or fuss.

why dont you just buy a food dehydrator and remove the heating element.

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

walmart carries a model with an adjustable heat setting. the lowest setting is perfect for drying mushrooms.

Last resort would be to place them behind your computer, it spits out plenty of warm dry air.

LAST RESORT...

You can't spend $10.00 for a fan? Don't you have a fan you use in the summer... One in an old PC...

You don't need a hurricane... just a breeze!
