95 is fine. It'll take a couple days for cracker dry mushrooms.

I run a dehydrator that has a low setting of 95 also. I can get cracker dry shrooms in as low as 12 hours. Depends on the size and quantity. No loss of potency that I have been able to notice.

Hope I helped you out

i live in Florida where the humidity is usually 80 to 100 this time of year. I run my AC all of the time so that might be why i have no problems with getting them cracker dry

I have some shrooms which are drying on a fan right now. They are some big boys. Really fat stems. I know they are still not all the way dry because they are able to be bent (rubbery), meaning water is inside. The outsides are pretty dry however. Has anyone ever stored them in a desiccant chamber at this point without any problems?
