Using an HPS Light for Drying
    #367782 - 08/06/01 04:14 PM (22 years, 11 months ago)

hey guys -

anyone know if its ok to use an HPS light for drying out shrooms? I've got a 400watt one left over from my pot growing adventures. The temp with the light running in my closet is less than 100 which I think is OK for drying without loss of potency.

would this be ok? i'd imagine ti would be a lot faster than making some sort of chamber..

thanks,
nick

I would think so. I use tungsten at 100 degrees.

I dont think it's a great idea. If you are gonna use the 400 watter, put your shrooms on some paper towel, then put a black t-shirt over them, and then turh the light on. Make sure it's not very hot where the shrooms are. Also, put a fan on them.

Operating cost are high to run a 400watt versus the chamber option... just my 2 cents.

Shiznitz - That is exactly how I have it setup. the light is a few feet away, the shrooms are on paper towels with black t-shirts on them. I've got a large oscillating fan in the room along with an exhaust fan on the light.

Temperatures do not go over 100, my understanding was the potency starts to break down way over 100.

both heat and light decompose alkaloids
use a fan to dry'em and let them cracker dry with dessicant. this way, depending on the mushrooms amount you don't need waste a lot of money for the dessicant.
