I normally just use a fan and slice up the stems a bit, but this never seems to get the little buggers 100% dry.

Just purchased some of that flower-drying silica - thanks for the idea, Myceliumcake!

dear god... dont put them in the oven... they need to be dried with NO heat...

You mean they need to be dried at Absolute Zero? Of course they need heat to dry. The question is how much is too much?

Is your response based on personal experience or are you requoting other sources?

In tea, mushrooms are subjected to temperatures from about 180F to 212F. Tea tripping is quite potent.

Food dehydrators use temperatures from 90F to 150F with no problems.

The oven at 150F for 2 or 3 hours (unitl dry) will NOT harm the shrooms. Put your hand in the oven, it is not really that warm. 150F is much cooler than my sauna.

The proof is in the pudding.

Mmmm... shrooms at Absolute Zero... would those be called "Super Shrooms?"

Ok, its a lame joke unless your a physics major.

My friend was told that the reason she never had much success with desiccants is because she always put them in the fridge. Seems that desiccants need a bit of warmth to work properly. She hasn't tested the theory yet, but has no reason to doubt the validity of the source.

They have a light bulb above, so the baggies are drying meanwhile. Anyway, they just speed things up. It works for me.

Peace,

Hack a nice hole in your computer case, 92mm in diameter. Then stick a 92mm fan in it and voila, not only do you have a nice blowhole to drop your temps, but also a way of drying your mushrooms in no time. My computer is always covered in mushrooms, some on the blowhole, some on top of my PCI card fan.
Then after a day into the silica gel chamber

I think the paper towel works well with the dessicant. The dessicant drys the paper towel.

the problem with dessicant ive found is it dosnt dry long enough. I used freshly baked with the coloer changing crystals, after only 6 hours the bright blue ones had turned bright pink and needed to be dried again.

I see the usefulness of the desicant chamber,
but the real question is, what about sealing them in ziplock bags, or better yet, using an impulse sealer that sucks the air out, and storing them this way?
